Ireland Travel Experts

As a travel agency based in Northern Europe, Nordic Visitor knows how to make the most of your time in Ireland. We offer a variety of self-drive tours that include the must-see attractions as well as lesser-known highlights that are hand-picked by our own Ireland travel experts. 

To ensure a stress-free trip, we handle all the local details for you – accommodations, activities, rental car, ferries, and other services.

We can also customise your chosen tour to your needs and tastes. If you decide you want to add extra nights at a certain location, for example, your personal Nordic Visitor travel consultant will be happy to make suggestions and modify your itinerary.

Customer Reviews

 

Nordic Visitor may be a new name in Ireland tourism, but we’ve been around for a while in Scotland and the Nordic countries, where we’ve established a great reputation among both our local suppliers and clients from all over the world.

It won't be long before we have new reviews below! Maybe yours will be next?

 

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.

IRELAND PACKAGES BY LOCAL TRAVEL SPECIALISTS

What would you like to experience in Ireland? Our Ireland travel experts have created thrilling tour packages for your dream Irish road trip.

IDEAS FOR BESPOKE IRELAND TOURS

Pick one of our tailor-made tours of Ireland to immerse yourself in the stunning scenery and historic sights. The ideal Irish holiday consists of exploring the cities as well as the countryside, to take in the culture, history and beauty of the Emerald Isle.

Experience the capital Dublin and its buzzing atmosphere before spending as much or as little time along the west coast as you wish. With a custom tour, we recommend visiting the highlights of Ireland with more off-the-beaten-path stops for good balance.

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

Good to know: All of Nordic Visitor’s Ireland self-drive tour packages can be tailored by our regional experts. They can add extra nights at select locations or modify the driving routes if you have any particular attractions in mind. Just ask!



Want to go on an Ireland road trip?

Take the wheel in Ireland and you’ll have the freedom to pull the car over at any attractions or breathtaking views. We recommend at least 6 to 8 days to make the most of a road trip around the island.

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

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

  • Day 1 – Arrive in Dublin.
  • Day 2 – Pick up your rental car and drive to 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 and drop off your rental car. Spend your last night in 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 your trip and sort all the details before you arrive.

We reserve your accommodation, rent a car for your trip, and can book activities to fill your days with more adventures. You’ll also have access to our 24/7 emergency helpline should you need to call us at any point.



Want to stay for a longer period of time?

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

With our flexible itineraries, it’s easy to start planning your tour! Pick the amount of time you want to spend in Dublin or on day trips from the capital. And then you can choose how far and how long you want to spend driving around the island.

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

Or would you prefer to spend more time in one city than another? Add another town to your trip or specific day tours? Just ask your Nordic Visitor travel consultant for advice.

When is the best time to visit Ireland on a custom tour?

Ireland is a beautiful country all year long. This means you can’t go wrong when you book your bespoke 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 best (and 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, you may find that top attractions are very 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 the 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 good weather and daylight to explore.



Are you interested in exploring Scotland too?

You could combine a tour of Ireland with a road trip around Scotland for an epic Celtic itinerary. We recommend a minimum of 10 days for this, however, so you can have enough time to dive into the cultures of both countries.

Spend the first 4 to 10 days driving around the rugged Highlands and islands of Scotland. Then follow that up with another road trip around Ireland to take in all the jaw-dropping coastal landscapes and historic landmarks.

As a tour operator specialising in both these fantastic destinations, we can offer tailor-made itineraries that combine the best of both.

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



Would you rather leave the driving to someone else?

Nordic Visitor will be setting up guided small group tours in the future. Small groups and driver guides are a perfect addition to a foreign trip if you want to forego driving. You get to meet like-minded travellers and learn more about the country directly from local tour guides.

In the meantime, we recommend the small group tours of Ireland’s Celtic neighbour, Scotland. You could also book a private tour of Scotland to travel with your own group of friends or family and a dedicated private guide.

All tours to Ireland and Scotland can be made into a luxury tour for you. Just ask and we can tailor an itinerary with special castle stays, private airport transfers and more.
