Tour Itinerary

It may come as a surprise that the beloved Irish tune “When Irish Eyes Are Smiling” was written by a trio of American songwriters. That’s the moving influence of this enchanting and captivating land. So when are Irish eyes smiling? At every moment on this undiscovered tour of Ireland – as you stroll down the lively streets of Dublin, sip Guinness in a boisterous pub on the Dingle Peninsula, take a horse-drawn jaunting-car ride through the Killarney countryside, and even bake scones on a quaint Irish sheep farm in the medieval town of Galway. By way of the most dramatic coastal and pastoral scenery, this tour of Ireland leads you to the lesser-known gems of the Emerald Isle as well as the cliffs, castles, and famous crystal you’ve long heard of.

Health and Safety Protocols for Globus Tours

Today's world has changed, but what remains certain is Globus' commitment to guest safety, comfort and peace-of-mind while traveling with us. To that end, Globus has established a worldwide Assurance program, with enhanced on-trip protocols and procedures, to ensure the health – and happiness – of guests throughout their travels with us.

It all starts with Globus' Global Health & Safety Team, dedicated to ensuring that cleanliness of all operations exceeds today’s travel standards—from start to finish. The following areas address Globus' commitment to providing a safe and clean environment for guests.

A SAFE & WARM WELCOME

Globus will enact new tour check-in procedures and pre-trip health screenings to offer guests a safe start to their journey, including adherence to social distancing requirements.

BLENDING CULTURAL PROXIMITY WITH SOCIAL DISTANCE

Globus will ensure safe distances for guests throughout the journey, on coach and during excursions. This includes providing masks for guests use at any time where social proximity could be an issue as well as the possibility of reducing group sizes, if required. And wireless listening technology – including Globus' Go Beyond Devices in Europe – enables safe distances between guests and other travelers on excursions.

FOCUS ON GUEST AND TEAM MEMBER HEALTH

To ensure a healthy environment for team and guests, Globus will conduct regular temperature checks for both guests and team, and when necessary, masks will be worn by Globus' team members when with guests.

TOUCHING HEARTS, NOT HANDS

Traveling with Globus removes many of the “touch points” of travel, including luggage handling, check in/out, expedited entry into attractions and more. Globus are further reducing risk with hands-free service, meaning all self-services replaced by staff, including buffet meals replaced with table service. Globus will also ensure hand sanitizing is available throughout each trip, on coach and in hotels.

COMMITMENT TO CLEAN

As a part of Globus' commitment to clean, Globus is requiring enhanced cleaning procedures with hotel partners, on motorcoaches, vehicles and throughout every trip, including additional daily disinfecting procedures that go above-and-beyond already strict health and safety procedures.

PARTNERS IN DISCOVERY AND IN HEALTH

Globus has strict health and safety protocols, which have been in place for years, focused on ensuring all aspects of operation- from vehicles and equipment used on trip to excursions and hotel procedures. This process will continue with new, elevated health and safety checks, to maintain their promise that each touch-point on tours and cruises are considered in their commitment to guest and team member well-being.

Just returned from a 10-day trip to Ireland and it was simply AMAZING! Everything we thought it would be and more. Thanks Affordable Tours for fabulous trip experience!

I would encourage my family or friends to take this trip. We picked it because it went to specific areas and smaller towns. It was everything we expected.

Everything was top notch and our tour director made sure there were no problems or snafus.

This trip was !st class Lodging was actually better than expected the Guide was experienced and knowledgeable

Excellent tour guide and excellent driver

This tour was our first experience with both Globus and Affordable Tours. Our Affordable Tours representatives guided us through the registration, insurance, and other processes well. Globus provided an excellent guide and wonderful driver! The bus was quite comfortable, as were the hotels. We would recommend this tour to anyone interested in visiting Ireland.

This tour gave us an excellent overview of Ireland. We enjoyed it very much.

Wonderful trip..better than expected

Everything was great and first class. Air Canada Rogue terrible airline.

The itinerary and package were less expensive had I gone on my own to travel to the same locations. The accommodations were excellent. The Staff were professional at all times. The tour guide was well prepared and took care of us each step of the way. The Bus operator was excellent and handled herself well on the open roads and in the crowded cities.

This was a great trip. The hotel accommodations were exceptional, the food good and the additional excursions were worthwhile except for the Dunguaire Castle Banquet. You sat on stools, the food was not good and definitely not worth the money paid. The only other negative was the description of visiting the Blarney castle. We were lead to believe we could visit the castle, which you can BUT there is an additional cost associated with it. This was very disappointing and I refused to pay the money to see the Blarney stone. Otherwise a great trip, had a fantastic group, an exceptional tour guide and a superb driver. Definitely worth the price.

The hotels were exceptionally nice. Would you believe we had the same tour director 18 years ago with Globus?

Our trip to Ireland was full of beautiful experiences, from the picture-postcard views of castles and round towers, the Cliffs of Moher, the Aran Islands, and the Ring of Kerry, to explorations of pedestrian cities with their mixtures of old architecture and new museums and shops. The countryside, from coastal views to pastoral midlands, is a feast for the eyes!

A wonderful trip. There were no problems of any kind. The tour director was considerate, kind, helpful, and professional. The same goes for the bus driver. They did everything possible to provide us with a happy experience and a sense of understanding of the country, the people, and it's history. Everything was done efficiently, but with enough time allowed to absorb the sights and sounds.

We had a wonderful tour of Ireland. Just what we hope for except one day of rain at Aran Island. Our Tour Director was outstanding in every way. She knows her stuff and made the tour. Our Coach driver did a really really nice job of getting us where we needed to be and was so accommodating with our luggage.

Fabulous trip to Ireland. It all was made easy through the help of our agent. So pleased

The trip to Ireland was even more than I expected. Things were well planned and executed efficiently. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and extremely humorous. I learned so much about the history of Ireland as well as geography. The rooms and food that were part of the package were wonderful. Thanks so much for all the work that goes into planning a trip like this. I take away great memories. 

Way too much time allowed (wasted) for shopping; would prefer more included guided tours rather than free time.

It was a lovely tour and I had a wonderful time. 

It was a wonderful package. the Bus driver and the Tour Guide were awesome, the absolute best!!!! I had a wonderful time.
