Explore Everything Ireland Has To Offer With Trafalgar!

Seeking a little bit of adventure in your life? Well, how does paying a visit to Ireland sound? You can experience everything this vibrant country has to offer, from the Blarney Stone to pints of Guinness, castles, kilts, bagpipes, whiskey, St Patrick’s Day and a good old foot stomping ‘Craic’! When it comes to all things Irish, Trafalgar and Tourism Ireland have you covered!

Trafalgar has added seven NEW itineraries to the Emerald Isle, taking their tally of Ireland holidays up to nine and 15 Irish holidays, including the Britain & Ireland combinations. Trafalgar offers holidays to Ireland featuring their new trip style – Hidden Journeys – on their new Irish offerings, as well as their traditional trip styles such as At Leisure, Regional and Country Explorers.

The Grass Really Is Greener In Ireland!

The new Irish guided holidays are jam-packed with all Trafalgar’s unique Insider Experiences, such as a Cultural Insight when visiting Belfast, and the Titanic Visitor Centre where you can learn more about the world’s most famous ship. Or the Be My Guest lunch experience at Muckross Traditional Farm, which is an open-air museum based on rural 1930s Ireland. Guests will dine in one of the farmhouses with traditional surroundings and musicians playing.

Stay in Authentic Accommodation at Ashford Castle, which was once owned by the Guinness family. Here, guests will cross over the drawbridge to the haunting sounds of a lone bagpiper after an exclusive cruise on Lough Corrib. Ashford Castle dates back to 1228 when it was founded by the de Burgo family. After three and a half centuries under the de Burgos, Ashford was passed to Lord Bingham. In 1852 it was purchased by Sir Benjamin Guinness, and it remained within the family until 1939, before it was converted into a hotel.
