Concierge Questions – Are there Winter Multi Day Tours of Ireland

This is a question we are often asked and the answer is not many, but there and there is more information posted below for you.

First some official Irish Government advice maybe helpful:

Perched on the northwest tip of Europe, this is the one place in the world where even time getting lost will be worthwhile… With ancient myths and legends to uncover, amazing landscapes to explore and locals who will be more than happy to reveal our hidden gems, just go where the island of Ireland takes you. Guaranteed, you’ll return home with memories that will last a lifetime

Amazing Ireland

Legend has it the Giant’s Causeway is the work of giant Finn MacCool who made it as a pathway to Scotland, where a rival giant lived

With bizarre lunar landscapes, the mighty Atlantic Ocean, labyrinthine caves and crystal clear waterways, Ireland’s diverse landscapes will take your breath away.

Our coastal beauty is the stuff of legends, with shorelines trimmed by golden sands and rocky outcrops. Inland, the lakelands and rural idylls are equally as varied as they are tranquil. You see, it’s not just green on our island, it’s much, much more than that…
