One of our most popular tours is around the island of Ireland. We’ve done this with a couple of people in a car or a minibus full or sometimes 2 minibusses. Clockwise or anti-Clockwise we taken in the North, the South or both. The history of the Irish and the Brits existing for centuries on one island and the tragedy of that never-ending conflict (which might now have ended) is fascinating and the beauty of the landscape and the friendliness of the people from both sides of the sectarian divide always overwhelms visitors who come back time and time again.
Sometimes we take groups on the ferries from the British mainland-usually Holyhead- and sometimes people fly in to either Dublin or Belfast.
Always popular on these trips (clockwise) are the Rock of Cashel, the Ring of Kerry, the town of Killarney, crossing the mouth of the Shannon, the Dingle peninsula, the rocky county Clare, the musical west coast town of Galway, the rugged Connemara hills, the stony slopes of Croagh Patrick, the Yeats country around Ben Bulben, the coasts and hills of Donegal, the never surrendering walled town of (London) Derry, the Giants Causeway, the Fermanagh lakes and the Antrim Glens ending up in the Northern capital of Belfast.
