    This tour is a good way to get a taste of multiple counties in Ireland. It isn't intended to give a comprehensive view of each area, just a quick peek. Our driver, Pat, was exceptional. Not just his driving skills but his knowledge of Ireland as... Show more

    The tour guide and driver were both excellent. The value for the money was also a pleasant surprise. There would be no way to see so much on a self driving tour. This was our first bus tour but won’t be the last.

    Really liked the tour! Wear comfy non slip shoes due to lots of walking and uneven pavement at times. Irish people were very helpful and friendly. You get to see lots of sights in a full day of touring.

Frequently Asked Questions

    • How much time is spent on the bus each day?

      Passengers will spend 3-5 hours on the bus each day, depending on the distance between cities and stops.

    • When and where does the tour end?

      This tour concludes after breakfast at 10 am at the Red Cow Moran Hotel in Dublin (The hotel is subject to change until your booking is finalised). Don’t forget to swap details with your fellow travellers before your onward journey home!

    • When and where does the tour start?

      The first day of this tour is an arrivals day so you can arrive at any time at Red Cow Moran Hotel (subject to change), however, your tour guide will be at the hotel between 2 pm and 5 pm on the first day of the tour to help you with check-in. If you arrive early, the tour operator recommends taking a walk around the city centre, and as Dublin is a relatively compact city, you can easily explore the history and culture on foot!

    • Do you arrange airport transfers?

      Expat Explore can provide private airport arrival transfers for passengers flying into Dublin airport, as well as departure transfers back to the airport on the last day of the tour for an additional cost. Please contact our Customer Support team to arrange this for you once your booking is confirmed.

    • Can you assist with booking additional accommodation?

      Unfortunately, Expat Explore can not book your pre/post accommodation for this tour but you are more than welcome to book directly with the hotel yourself.

    • What is the age range?

      This tour is suitable for anyone within the age range of 10 to 90+ years old. Unfortunately, Expat Explore is unable to accept any travellers under the age of 10, which means that children and infants are not eligible to participate in this tour. There is no upper age limit however travellers over 65 years of age may be asked to provide medical evidence of fitness to travel on certain itineraries.

    • I'm a solo traveller, is there a single supplement?

      A single supplement is available for this tour an additional cost if you would prefer your own room. However, the single supplement is completely optional as the tour price advertised is based on a twin share basis, which means that if you are a single traveller you will be roomed with a passenger of the same gender and around the same age at no additional cost.

    • Do I need a visa?

      As a tour booking website, TourRadar cannot organise visas for you on your behalf as the visa requirements are regularly being updated and vary for the nationality of one traveller to the next. It is for this reason that we recommend checking with your local embassy or consulate website for the latest up to date information.
