Customer Experiences Of Ireland Tours

Don’t just imagine your visit to Ireland - read what our amazing guests have to say!

Linda, United States

Scenic Ireland, September 2022

Excellent tour

Chris, our Nordic Visitor Travel Consultant, was very responsive to every email that I sent and answered any questions that I had. We had 4 in our group and it was simple to have 2 single rooms and 1 double and add days at the beginning and the end of our trip just from their website. A welcome package was waiting for us at our first hotel that included detailed information about our trip and a map with highlighted roads and points of interest along the way. Our accommodation ranged from small boutique hotels to resort hotels. Each was close to the city centre and excellent! Breakfast was included each morning which made it easy to get going. It was nice to have our accommodation and car secured for us so we only worried about where we were going to explore each day! We highly recommend Nordic Visitor and will definitely use them in the future!

Vivienne, Australia

Wild Atlantic Way at Leisure, August 2022

Very enjoyable itinerary

We were very happy that a really good map of Ireland was provided, which had our hotels highlighted, with the dates annotated, and our route and recommended places of interest also highlighted. Most hotels were centrally located and we had some lovely accommodation. The "Wild Atlantic Way" itinerary was really enjoyable, we were directed to some marvellous places & have some great memories. Our bound copy of the guide, together with the Touring Map of Ireland, are great mementoes of a wonderful holiday.

Martin, United States

Complete Ireland, October 2022

Flawless experience

Our travel consultant Rebecca was fabulous. She accommodated us in modifying our schedule at no charge after my wife's mother's death. She cheerfully changed our Dublin hotel to a more central location and always responded quickly to any questions or concerns. We are planning a Scotland trip in 2023 again using Nordic Visitor and hope to have Rebecca again. In 2021 we used Nordic Visitor for a 2-week driving Iceland trip that was also flawless.

William, United States

Grand Tour of Scotland & Ireland, August 2022

Unforgettable experience

Communication via email and telephone was very good. Everyone at Nordic Visitor was helpful. Tour package was clear with good suggestions for activities and restaurants. Accommodation was beautiful and comfortable. Driving through Scotland & Ireland was unforgettable.

Stephanie, United States

Ireland East to West, March 2023

A great experience

Overall, we had a great experience. Anytime we had questions our advisor did a great job answering them in a timely manner. In country, we only had to call customer service one time, when the accommodation had misplaced our welcome packet. The agent on call worked with the hotel and they found it and she called back to confirm that we had everything we needed.

Laura, United States

Complete Scotland & Ireland, September 2022

Overall we had a wonderful time

We had a great experience, had to call a few times to clarify issues and we were always able to talk with a real person. We received our info about 3 weeks before leaving. I felt we needed more time to review all the info since it was a 17-day trip. Overall we had a wonderful time and would highly recommend this company.

Terri, United Kingdom

Wonders of Ireland, September 2022

Excellent

Absolutely excellent tour bus driver!

Kenneth, Canada

Ultimate Tour of Scotland & Ireland, September 2022

Extremely satisfied with all aspects of the tour

Extremely satisfied with all aspects of the tour. Very professional and thorough. The maps and guide book were invaluable and made the tour very easy to navigate. Locations of accommodation were superb, all near restaurants, attractions and shopping.

Getting to Ireland

Ireland has 10 airports, with the three main international ports being: Dublin, Cork and Shannon. Unless customised to begin elsewhere, all Nordic Visitor tours in Ireland start and end in Dublin, the capital city.

Flight times to Ireland are, for example, 6 hours from New York City or Boston and 1.5 hours from London. Major international airlines with flights to Ireland include (but are not limited to) Aer Lingus, British Airways, Virgin Atlantic, United Airlines, Ryanair, and KLM.

The Republic of Ireland is on GMT time. If your journey involves one or more connecting flights, or if you're crossing several time zones to get here, your dedicated Nordic Visitor travel consultant can add extra nights in Dublin to your package so you can rest up after arrival.

Please note that your flights to Ireland are not included in Nordic Visitor packages. However, if you have booked a combination tour of Scotland and Ireland, we include flight costs between the two countries in the package price.

IDEAS FOR ALL-INCLUSIVE IRELAND TOURS

Immerse yourself in the landscapes and historical landmarks of Ireland on an all-inclusive tour. You could explore lively Irish cities and charming countryside as you take in the culture, history and beauty of the Emerald Isle.

Get to know the buzzing Irish capital, Dublin, before heading for the breathtaking Atlantic coast. You could explore Northern Ireland, the Wild Atlantic Way, and the rolling green countryside on your vacation.

Discover famous Irish castles and historic buildings across the country. Don’t miss a visit to Trinity College in Dublin where you can see the ancient Book of Kells. Marvel at the impressive Blarney Castle in County Cork where you can kiss the Blarney Stone.

All our tours include top highlights like these, as well as more off-the-beaten-path stops.

Imagine yourself wandering through ancient Celtic monuments, going for a walk on the emerald hills, and learning about Gaelic culture. You could sit in a typical pub tasting the local brew and listening to live Irish music.



Want to go on an Ireland road trip?

We recommend at least 6 to 8 days to make the most of a self-drive or guided road trip around Ireland.

All our tours set off from Dublin and include top attractions such as the Cliffs of Moher, the Ring of Kerry, and Blarney Castle.

Choose a self-drive itinerary if you want the most flexibility. This way, you’ll have the freedom to pull the car over at any attractions or breathtaking views.

Or pick a small group or privately guided tour if you want to learn from a knowledgeable local guide along the way. 

Here’s an example of a one-week Ireland itinerary:

  • Day 1 – Arrive in Dublin and explore the Irish capital.
  • Day 2 – Head for the west coast. Spend the night in Galway.
  • Day 3 – Explore Connemara or the Aran Islands. Overnight in Galway.
  • Day 4 – See the Cliffs of Moher. Overnight in Killarney.
  • Day 5 – Tour the Ring of Kerry. Overnight in Killarney.
  • Day 6 – Visit historic sites before returning to Dublin.
  • Day 7 – Depart from Dublin Airport.


The best part? You won’t have to worry about where you’re going or sleeping, because your Nordic Visitor travel consultant will plan the trip for you and sort all the details before you arrive.

As well as reserving your accommodation and arranging local transport for your trip, we can book activities to fill your days with more adventures. We cater to all tastes, whether you want to visit a whiskey distillery, discover the national parks, or journey to windswept islands.

You’ll also have access to our 24/7 emergency helpline should you need to call us at any point.



Want to stay longer?

If you want to slow down the pace and take in more Irish attractions, we highly recommend extending your tour to at least 10 days.

It’s easy to start planning your tour! Pick the amount of time you want to stay in Dublin and then decide how many days you want to spend discovering the island.

The possibilities are endless when visiting Ireland. With 10 days or longer, you could enjoy a more in-depth travel experience. Follow the Wild Atlantic Way route or pop into Northern Ireland for a complete tour of the island.

All of Nordic Visitor’s Ireland tour packages can be tailored by our travel experts. On self-drive itineraries, they can add extra nights at select locations or modify the driving routes if you have any particular attractions in mind. And you can tailor guided itineraries by extending your stay in Dublin at the start or end of the escorted part of your trip. Just ask!



Interested in visiting Northern Ireland?

As you may already know, the island of Ireland is made up of two countries. The Republic of Ireland, which is an independent nation, and Northern Ireland, which is part of the United Kingdom (along with England, Scotland and Wales).

While they are two different countries, they share many similarities in their history, culture and, of course, their geography. For a complete tour of the island, we recommend including Northern Ireland in your itinerary. This way you could get to know the Emerald Isle and see all its beauty in depth.

You won’t want to miss the capital Belfast, the Antrim Coast, and the Giant’s Causeway. You could also have a longer seaside road trip by adding Northern Ireland’s Causeway Coastal Route to your itinerary.

When is the best time to visit Ireland?

Ireland is a beautiful island to visit all year long. This means you can’t go wrong when you book your Irish getaway. That said, we recommend the summertime or its shoulder months for the best experience.

The summer, consisting of the months of June, July and August, is the high season. It is marked by long daylight hours and the most stable weather of the year. Attractions also operate under longer hours and more availability than in winter.

All of this means you can discover Ireland to your heart’s content.

However, the top attractions can be popular at this time. Indeed, Ireland attracts visitors from around the world especially in summer.

If you would rather have a quieter holiday, visit during spring or autumn. These shoulder months include April, May, September and October. During this time, you’ll find the best of both worlds: quieter attractions but plenty of daylight and good weather for exploring.



Are you keen to explore Scotland too?

Combine your Irish break with a trip around Scotland for an epic Celtic itinerary. We recommend a minimum of 10 days for an Ireland and Scotland tour, so you have enough time to get a taste of both countries.

Spend the first 4 to 10 days travelling around the rugged Highlands and islands of Scotland. Then follow that up with time to discover Ireland's jaw-dropping coastal landscapes and historic landmarks.

Scotland is a great destination to complement a tour of Ireland. Their cultures and history are so closely linked and you’ll be able to meet the locals and get immersed in both.
