Planning a trip to Ireland? This is a great destination for families, couples, and groups because of the diversity, cultural interests, and natural beauty. Plus, air schedules are frequent from North America, and English is spoken! Ireland is a perfect choice for first time travelers to Europe and for folks looking to connect to their heritage.

Self-Drive Vacations
Renting a car and traveling around Ireland is a very popular way to enjoy this country. You can either opt to pre-book accomodations, or utilize the flexibility of a voucher bed & breakfast program (or combine both methods). At Expert Family Travel, we will assist you in planning your independent itinerary. We suggest that you limit yourself to one region for a short stay, and up to two regions for 8 day stays. If you'd like to leave the driving to someone else, chauffered custom itineraries are also available.

Independent package options also include golf vacations and soft adventure vacations.

Try your luck golfing in Ireland.

Escorted Motor Coach Tours
The easiest way to see Ireland is by traveling via an escorted motor coach tour. Accomodations and itineraries are pre-arranged, and some meals are included. You will probably be able to do and see more with an escorted tour. Because of the inclusions, this type travel is generally the best overall value.

Accomodations
Ireland offers a great variety of accomodation choices, including conventional hotels, quaint bed & breakfasts, manor houses and inns, condos, and even overnite castle stays. There are also accomodations to meet most budgets, from efficient & tidy to extravagant & luxury.

Consider a mix and match custom itinerary, perhaps adding a nite or two in a castle to make your trip completely memorable.
