What Are Ireland Tours?
Ireland tours are prepackaged trips with a set itinerary and dedicated tour manager. Many people who want to take an Ireland vacation want to avoid all the planning and logistics involved in a big week or two week foreign trip abroad and are looking to save money by doing it all in a package instead of piecing things together at full price. The trip is led by a tour director who will take care of all the services from beginning to the end of your vacation. Your tour director connects you with local tour guides who will have a lot of knowledge on the specific cities you explore. Typically, hotels, transportation throughout your trip, some meals and sightseeing are arranged and included with the price of your Ireland tour.
Ireland may occupy a relatively small space in the world (it's about the same geographic size as the state of Indiana), but it's a giant when it comes to splendid scenery, rich heritage, magnificent castles and fascinating folklore. The island is politically divided into two countries: the sovereign Republic of Ireland (which is typically known as simply "Ireland") and Northern Ireland, which is part of the United Kingdom.
What's Included on an Ireland Tour?
An Ireland tour usually includes at least one overnight in the capital city of Dublin, where its many important sights include St. Patrick's Cathedral, Dublin Castle, Trinity College, and O'Connell Street, one of the widest thoroughfares in Europe. Beer aficionados won't want to miss a visit to the Guinness Storehouse at St. James Gate, where the dark brew was created more than 250 years ago.
Generally, an Ireland tour will include as many services as possible, giving you less to worry about. Usually included on your Ireland tour are: transportation (getting from place to place while on tour), accommodations, most meals, and the services of a dedicated tour director. As per the itinerary, certain sightseeing opportunities are also included: tickets to special VIP access to the most famous landmarks, skip the lines, and when available, access to a personal local guide for expert commentary.
