We all know Ireland for its green rolling hills, lively culture and deep history – but you cannot truly know Ireland until you have experienced it!
Ireland is a small country with a big heart – where the locals believe their land is the most beautiful in the world. This is a country where ancient and modern combine, steeped in history and soaked in traditions, which its people can’t wait to share with you over a pint at the local pub!
We chose to take our tours to Ireland, because it is a country with such a rich cultural heritage. On our tours, you can actually meet the people, mingle with locals, learn their folk songs and become engaged in their crafts through local experiences. We will show you not just the great highlights of Ireland, but also the small villages where living traditions still exist, and give you access to the people that keep these traditions alive.
