My family has always wanted to visit Ireland to know our heritage better. We chose Focus on Ireland with Insight Vacations for a number of reasons. First, the extra legroom on the luxury motor coach would provide more comfort for my parents. Also, the itinerary hits much of southern Ireland’s biggest highlights within 7 days with many Relaxed Starts. Relaxed Starts are mornings where you don’t have to wake up extra early in the morning.
