All-Inclusive Ireland Tours Ask us about All-Inclusive Vacations

For the best in value for your Tour of Ireland or Tour of Northern Ireland we usually recommend an all-inclusive tour vacation package. We find it's nice to have some lunch times where you are free to explore and discover, but otherwise we'd recommend the rest of the meals being included.

We offer a range of tours, including fully-customised itineraries, but generally we recommend a tour which includes:

Why go all inclusive?

Manage the Cost

With an all-inclusive tour package, you know almost exactly what your vacation in Ireland is going to cost. So you can budget well in advance and there will be no nasty surprises.

Best Value

Our buying power means that we get great rates on everything we provide for you, making your Ireland tour unbeatable in value. The entrance to a certain attraction would cost you a lot more if you went there directly, compared to us including it for you.

No Hidden Extras

There are no hidden extra charges such as fuel surcharges, credit card fees or local taxes. We want you to know exactly what you'll be getting on your Ireland tours, so each itinerary specifies exactly what's included.

You say it better than we do...

If I could give more than 5 stars, I would! My family had an absolutely incredible experience doing a week-long private tour with My Ireland Tour from the wonderful guidance that we received from Eric and team to develop our perfect itinerary to our amazing driver-guide Tony who become part of our family during the week that we spent with him. The hotels were beautiful and in great locations... I am so glad that we selected My Ireland Tour for our vacation and I would give them my highest recommendation!

I found My Ireland Tour on a fluke as I was trying to compare tour prices with other tour companies. We received a better deal going with a private tour compared to buses filled with 30+ strangers. Make you sure you do your homework and check with My Ireland Tour so you have all of the best options! You will not regret it! We sure didn't! We had a family of 4 and the private van tour was the BEST decision. I don't think we will travel to Ireland again any other way.

Fantastic trip!! I have travelled extensively (averaging 3 months a year) and this was one of the best tours ever. The guide made the difference. Tony was the best guide I have had anywhere. Totally knowledgeable about virtually everything in Ireland down to the last date and a born entertainer! He went out of his way to make this the best trip for each of us. The hotels were very good and located in the best places. I will return and will request Tony every time. Highly recommend this tour to anyone really interested in learning about Ireland in a fun way.

The General Post Office

The General Post Office of Ireland The General Post Office of Ireland

The General Post Office of Ireland had many homes before finally settling on its current location of O'Connell Street, on January 6th 1818. It is most famous for housing the Irish Rebels during the Easter Rising of 1916.

The building was destroyed by fire during the uprising and was left unattended until the Irish Free State government set about restoring it. The General Post Office now acts as a visitor centre and sheds an amazing light on some of Ireland's darkest days and the country it was to become.
