Experience, discover and love the Green Island with an Ireland tour

Ireland is a small country with just around 70,000 square kilometers, but in a small area there is a great variety of landscapes, cultures and history to be admired. Each region of the Green Island has its own special features and beauties: from the palm-lined beach promenades in southern Ireland to the historical treasures in the east of Ireland, the lonely stretches of land in the north to the rocky west coast.

It is almost impossible to get to know all regions in depth on a tour of Ireland. It is therefore worth choosing a specific region for a holiday in Ireland. We have put together our Ireland tours for the individual regions of Ireland here.

Round trips Southern Ireland

On a round trip through southern Ireland, you can expect wild and romantic stretches of coast, which alternate with inviting, secluded stretches of beach. Again and again there are unique views of the wild waves of the Atlantic. The Ring of Kerry and its little, less well-known brother, the Ring of Beara, are probably the most famous scenic roads in Ireland and a wonderful way to discover this side of Southern Ireland on a round trip.

Palm trees line the promenades of the small towns in the south of Ireland, which enchant the visitor with their maze of small alleys. There, enchanting shops with handicrafts and numerous cozy pubs and cafés are just waiting to be discovered by you. Cities like Cobh, Cork, Waterford, Killarney or Kinsale invite you to stroll and relax.

These tours take you (also) through Southern Ireland:

Round trips through the east of Ireland

A tour through the east of Ireland must of course also include the capital of the Green Island, Dublin. Dublin is a colorful mixture of the traditional and the modern and some traces of the past of this eventful city can still be discovered today. In addition, Dublin is of course an Eldorado for lovers of liquid pleasures, because not only the famous Guinness Storehouse is in the middle of the city, but also numerous whiskey distilleries. The city's cozy pubs invite you to relax in the evenings while reviewing the impressions of the day.

On a round trip through the east of Ireland you will also get to know the historical treasures of the region. These include the famous passage graves of Newgrange, Knowth and Dowth, the defiant Trim Castle, the throne of the Irish high kings on the Hill of Slane or Monasterboice, which boasts Ireland's highest high cross.

Not far from Dublin beats the green heart of the region, the Wicklow Mountains, with the millennia-old Glendalough monastery. This is idyllically embedded in this special Irish landscape.

These tours will (also) take you through Ireland's east:

Round trips through the west of Ireland

The west of the Emerald Isle is affectionately known as Ireland's Wild West - and not by chance, because in Connemara's National Park, for example, lonely peaty expanses in front of breathtaking mountain scenery await hikers. A truly wild and rough landscape.

The coast of Western Ireland is known as the Wild Atlantic Way, which runs along wild cliffs and picturesque bays not far from the Atlantic. On the way, sights such as Achill Island, Ireland's largest island, the famous Cliffs of Moher or the famous Aran Islands await you on this round trip through Ireland's west.

These tours will (also) take you through the west of Ireland:

Round trips in the north of Ireland

The landscape of the north of the Emerald Isle is of rugged beauty. In the north of the Republic of Ireland, for example, the counties Donegal or Sligo enchant with their peaceful solitude, for example between the mountains of the Glenveagh National Park. Malin Head as the northernmost point on the Irish mainland offers breathtaking views of this wild stretch of coast on a round trip.

In terms of culture, the north of Ireland has exciting travel highlights. The capital of Northern Ireland, Belfast, with the famous Titanic Experience is an absolutely worthwhile detour on a round trip through Ireland's north. In addition to the exhibition mentioned, the city offers numerous opportunities to have fun while strolling through the city.

Belfast is not far from what is probably the most famous attraction in Ireland's north: the Giant’s Causeway. Nearby is the equally famous Dunluce Castle, as well as the Bushmills distillery and the majestic avenue of the Dark Hedges.

FAQ Ireland round trip

Ireland round trip - what do you have to see?

The must-see sights on a tour of Ireland are: The capital Dublin, Boyne Valley, Glendalough, Ring of Kerry, Killarney National Park, Cliffs of Moher, Galway, Kylemore Abbey in Connemara, Dunluce Castle, Giant's Causeway, Belfast . But we advise you not to let it degenerate into stress. It is better to forego a few of the sights in order to have more time for the others. Let yourself be guided by what speaks to you the most.

What does an Ireland tour cost?

For a one-week round trip through Ireland, you should expect around € 400 per person for an overnight stay with breakfast. In addition, there are costs for going to a restaurant or café or shopping on the way, as well as costs for travel and the rental car.

How long should you take your time on a tour of Ireland?

You should take two weeks for a relaxed tour of Ireland. So you can see a lot without getting hectic. Because although the distance between the individual sights of the Green Island is never great, you should still have the opportunity to linger a little in places that you like. In addition, many roads are not as well developed and you should therefore plan a little more time for the journeys than the navigation system or Google Maps shows.

Ireland round trip - when is the best time to travel?

The months of May, June, July, August and September are considered the best time to travel to Ireland. At this time it is warm, the weather is relatively stable (as stable as it can be in Ireland) and there are many hours of sunshine.
However, June, July and August are also the months that most tourists see. That means that many of the sights are very well visited. If you are not tied to the holidays, our tip is to plan a tour of Ireland in May or September.

How do I plan a tour of Ireland?

The first thing you should consider is how much time you can take to travel around Ireland. You should subtract the arrival and departure days from this in order to be able to see how many days you actually have at your disposal. We advise you to take at least a week.

Then you should be clear about which regions, which sights in Ireland are of interest to you. Are you more interested in the flair of the Irish cities or do you want to experience the nature of Ireland? What do you want to do? Depending on this, you then plan the route. Our tip: do not plan too long distances for a day. 2 to 3 hours in the car a day should be the absolute maximum.

You should also be clear about what travel budget is available to you. Depending on this, research your accommodation along your travel route. Good B & Bs cost between € 40-60 per person in a double room. For mid-range hotels outside of Dublin you should expect between € 60-90 per person. You have to expect more in Dublin. In addition, there are of course costs for flights and rental cars, as well as for food on the way.
