Your Irish Castles Tour will be created especially for you, which means you have a completely flexible range of options available to tailor your tour to your exact needs and wishes. When you get in touch with us to start building your custom tour, we will work with you at no obligation to design a tour that meets your specific interests and preferences. Over the years, we’ve found that this is the best way to create your perfect Irish vacation.
Arrival & Departure
The itinerary shown assumes arrival at and departure from Shannon Airport. We can alter the itinerary to accommodate arrivals and departures at any Irish airport, or indeed any location in Ireland.
Add Additional Days
While the itinerary shown is 8 days long, we can easily add additional days when we are customizing your tour.
Because the castle hotels you will stay in are so special, many of our guests opt to stay for an extra night at one or more location, to have time to enjoy the extensive grounds and facilities of their hotel.
Another possible option is to add a day or two in Dublin at the beginning or end of your tour.
Change Accommodation Class
This tour includes accommodation in some of the very best and most luxurious 4 and 5 star hotels in Ireland, and this is reflected in the price of the tour. If you would like to follow the same itinerary but with some or all nights in less expensive accommodation, we can arrange wonderful B&B or boutique hotel rooms and quote you a price accordingly.
Explore Your Irish Roots
Guests who have roots in Ireland very often wish to include a day in the place from which their ancestors came, often in conjunction with our Irish Roots, Irish Oaks offering. If this option interests you, please mention the l0cation when you complete the inquiry form and we will be happy to arrange this for you.
Take a Detour
On all of our tours we can, and often do, take spontaneous detours along the road – so if you see an intriguing signpost or want to follow that winding road to the lake in the distance, we will happily make a detour for you.
If you or your group have a special interest, perhaps gardening, architecture or a particular period of history, we can build in detours accordingly. Quite often these include visits to very special, less known places that cannot accommodate large tour groups.
You may want to spend a day golfing, fishing or horse riding, while other members of your party have no interest in those activities. We are happy to arrange and book any activities, and get you to their location and plan an alternative day for the other members of your group.
If any members of your group has mobility issues, you can be assured that their enjoyment of Ireland will be effortlessly catered for. While accessibility is good at most Irish tourist destinations and accommodation, we can advise on the exact situation in every place we visit and plan an itinerary that avoids places where access may be a major issue.
Our vehicles are already specially configured to allow more space per person than the norm, but we can readily make further changes as required to make travelling more comfortable. We also have special wheelchair friendly transportation available.
Where there are special requirements for accommodation, we will select places to stay with those in mind and will liaise with hotels to ensure that everything you need is in place in advance of your arrival.
