The best vacations are made up of a number of experiences – those moments that stick at the forefront of your mind when you look back on your trip. The Ireland Experience Self-Drive Tour takes that sentiment and delivers a tour that is full of those unforgettable moments, and even better it’s all included in the price.

Like most of our packages, this tour includes your car rental and accommodation. But unlike most of our tours, The Ireland Experience also includes a number of Ireland’s most popular attractions.

From a horse-drawn ride around the Gap of Dunloe, to Irish dancing in Dublin’s Fair City to pulling your own pint at Durty Nelly’s pub, this is the quintessential Irish tour. However the real beauty of this tour is that although you won’t want to miss any of these activities, you’ll still be able to enjoy the freedom of a self-drive tour, moving from one scenic wonder to the next.

This tour can be upgraded to also include an expert driver/guide. Click here for more details.
