IDEAS FOR YOUR IRELAND TOUR PACKAGE FROM DUBAI
Pick one of our itineraries to immerse yourself in the stunning scenery and historic sights of Ireland. The ideal Irish holiday consists of exploring the cities as well as the countryside, to take in the culture, history and natural beauty of the Emerald Isle.
Experience Dublin, the capital and largest city of Ireland, with its buzzing atmosphere and lively events. Then you can spend as much time as you want along the west coast. All our tours include the biggest highlights as well as more off-the-beaten-path stops.
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.
Want to go on an Ireland road trip?
We recommend at least 6 to 8 days to make the most of a driving tour around the Republic of Ireland.
All our tours set off from Dublin and include the top natural attractions such as the Cliffs of Moher, the Ring of Kerry, and Blarney Castle. As the itineraries are flexible, you’ll have the freedom to pull the car over at any attractions or breathtaking views.
Here’s an example of a one-week Ireland road trip itinerary:
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.

Would you prefer joining a guided tour?
Skip the driving and opt for a guided tour instead!
Travel with your own group with one of these private tours of Ireland. You’ll have your very own driver-guide to take you around the island and tell you all about its history and culture. This is an intimate way to see the country with dedicated attention to your own needs and interests.
You could also travel with like-minded people on a guided small group tour. These tours offer an enriching and personal way to travel as a group. You’ll take advantage of an expert guide’s knowledge while travelling with a maximum of 15 other guests.
Please note: While small group tours can be customised with some optional activities, you can only add extra nights in Dublin before or after the guided portion of the tour.
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 Ireland holiday from Dubai to at least 10 days.
With our flexible itineraries, it’s easy to start planning your tour now. Pick the amount of time you want to stay in and explore Dublin. And then you can choose how far and how long you want to spend around the island.
The possibilities are endless when you visit Ireland. With 10 days or longer, you could explore the capital and countryside in more depth.
Follow the Wild Atlantic Way route to admire the sea cliffs, feel the Atlantic wind in your hair, and taste delicious seafood. Visit historic sights such as the Victorian Kylemore Abbey, take a boat tour to the Skellig Islands, or spend some time in Cork, Ireland’s second largest city.
If you prefer to spend more time in one city than another or want to add another town to your trip, it’s no problem. Just ask your Nordic Visitor travel consultant for advice.
Interested in visiting Northern Ireland?
As you may already know, the island of Ireland is separated in 2 entities. 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 2 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.
In Northern Ireland, you won’t want to miss the capital Belfast, the Antrim Coast, and the Giant’s Causeway.
When is the best time to visit Ireland from Dubai?
Ireland is a fun and beautiful holiday destination all year long. This means you can’t go wrong when you book your Irish getaway from Dubai. 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?
Combine a tour of Ireland with a trip around Scotland for an epic Celtic itinerary. We recommend a minimum of 10 days for this, so you can have enough time to dive into the cultures of both countries.
Spend the first 4 to 10 days journeying around the rugged Highlands and islands of Scotland. Then follow that up with another trip around Ireland to take in all the jaw-dropping coastal landscapes and historic landmarks.
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.
What's more? You can choose from a range of trips for your combo tour, including road trips, private itineraries and guided small group tours. It all depends on how you prefer to travel.
