    Tarryn was super well-organized, energetic and knowledgeable on our tour of Ireland in October 2015. I'd love to travel with her again! She's super!

    You where the tour guide for Christine and I in Ireland back in sept 2014. Hardly a day goes by when I don't remember that time. It was one of the best times or our lives. Your energy, enthusiasm and way you made us more a family for that week will not be forgotten. Thank you for being apart of one the best moments of our lives. We both love you Megs.

    Megs was fantastic! You can really tell that she loves showing people new places! She is caring and detail orientated, making sure that her clients get the most out of their experience. I had an amazing time, as did my fellow travelers, on our tour of Ireland. I would unreservedly recommend her to anyone interested in taking a Contiki tour. I would definitely go on another tour with Megs!

    Meg was great! If it wasn't for the Aussie accent you'd think she was a local lephrechaun with all the great knowledge she shared and places reccommended for our free time. Will never forget pottering at the Cliffs of Moher!

    A great tour. I loved all the friends I made, and how many places we are able to hit in such a short 9 days. Biking to the cliffs on the Aran Islands was definitely a highlight. Ebony was excellent! Super knowledgable and genuinely got to know all of us on the trip. She even organized a big karaoke night for the entire group in Kilkenny for someone's birthday.

    • July 22, 2016

      Please can you advise if contiki offer arrival transfers in Dublin? What is the name of the starting hotel?

      Thank you for your question. Contiki do not offer arrival transfers in Dublin. However making your way from Dublin airport to the centre of Dublin is very simple.

      You can either get a taxi for around 25 Euros or you could catch the airport bus which is around 6 Euros one way. These buses depart frequently from the airport and terminate near the centre of Dublin.

      The name of the starting hotel is usually confirmed around a month before the departure of the trip. This is a centrally located hotel and is easy to get to from the airport bus.

      For more information regarding the airport bus please have a look at the link below.
