Explore Ireland with a Self-Drive Vacation
One great way to explore Ireland at your own pace is by taking a self-drive vacation package that allows you to customize your trip with everything from the length of stay, to the type of accommodations, even the itinerary itself. With a self-drive vacation, you can choose the size and style of vehicle you need. Travel Maestro tip: Automatic transmissions are more expensive to rent than manual shifts but you will be driving on the left side on narrow roads in Ireland, so for some, the difference in price is worth the ease of operation.
Similarly, you can tailor your accommodations to suit your individual travel style. Choose from Bed & Breakfasts, Farmhouses, small inns, large hotels, and even castles. You purchase vouchers for a certain number of nights and can mix and match different types of accommodations. Reservations can be made in advance, but it is not required. Travelers can also decide their itinerary as they go by making reservations for their next night from their current location.
Escorted Tours of Ireland
If you prefer not to drive yourself, there are many escorted motorcoach tours of Ireland. They include comfortable transportation for a set itinerary, as well as accommodations, sightseeing, and often some meals. A professional tour guide travels with the group and providing insight into the local sights and culture.
Covington can recommend a tour for any number of days or budget. For example, an outstanding 13-day itinerary might include stays at Dromoland Castle and Ashford Castle, lunch with a farm family at a working dairy farm, and visits to Dublin, County Donegal, Waterford, Killarney and the Ring of Kerry. A shorter tour might concentrate on Shannon to Kerry. Contact Covington today to discuss what type of Ireland tour best fits your style.
