Planning Your Visit

  • Best time to visit?

    Ireland isn't exactly known for its splendid weather, but the best of it generally makes its token appearance at the end of summer (September-ish). If you're looking for an excuse to don a silly hat and swig Guinness, the St. Patrick's Day parade is on March 17th.

  • How to get around?

    The Irish are world-renowned for their terrific sense of humor, and nowhere is this more evident than in Dublin's public transport network! There are 2 unconnected tram lines and trains mainly serve the outer rim of the city. The bus network is extensive but a tough nut to crack for visitors (see dublinbus.ie). The good news, however, is that most of the sights are just a short walk from each other in the heart of the city!

  • How many days?

    You could see the sights of Dublin in a day or two, but remember this is a city of exemplary museums, exciting music and sports events, and enticing modern restaurants. Book a week to delve into its best kept secrets!

The trip was excellent, the tour guide, Pat, was very fun and friendly, we had a very pleasant time and he clearly knows what he is doing, he knew all about the places, and his dynamic with his partner, the driver Alec, was very good. I will recommend this tour to everyone who comes to visit Ireland.

Very nice experience, we stopped in many beautiful places, if I may suggest a little longer journey because the time in Galway was extremely short (1 hour in which we only had time to grab something to eat because is pretty crowded). Or skip the Obama plazza and stay longer in Galway.

When you get the guy with curly hair and glasses, you just won the lottery. He's awesome :D I believe the way he talks is part of Irish cultural heritage.

Phillip and Alec was a great team. We had loads of fun and we were filled with information about Ireland's history and folklores.

Good experience! Nice trip , one of the top places you have to visit in Ireland
