Renowned for its warm welcome, literary genius, live music and green fields, Ireland is a small isle with enormous character. It's compact enough to explore easily, yet also incredibly diverse. Our Ireland specialists have a deep affinity with the island — north and south — and can bring you closer to the landscapes and the Irish people even at its most famous attractions such as Giants Causeway
Our Ireland specialists know the country inside out and can lead you to experiences you won’t find in a guidebook. On a tailor-made holiday to Ireland with Audley, you’ll see the highlights — and much more — your way. We’ll design your ideal trip with you, paying close attention to your interests, your travel style and your budget.
Try kayaking to romantic ruins on the Lakes of Killarney, take a literary pub crawl around Dublin or gain an introduction to Northern Ireland’s political history on a black taxi tour of Belfast. We also recommend getting well off the beaten path in places like the little-visited Beara Peninsula or along the stone-walled roads of the island of Inis Mór. Wherever you go, you'll be welcomed with that legendary Irish charm, regaled with stories and persuaded that the only way to do this place justice would be to plan a return visit.

What to do in Dublin: a first-hand guide
Unpretentious and lively, Dublin is a compact capital city with lots to offer says Audley specialist Max. You can spend the day exploring Ireland’s history at Trinity College or Saint Patrick’s Cathedral, and spend the evening drinking Guinness in a Temple Bar pub.
Discovering food in Ireland
Ireland’s culinary scene is vibrant, inventive and a far cry from its out-of-date reputation. Explore Ireland’s culinary renaissance, including a farm that produces briny-sweet oysters, a tasting that spotlights whiskey distilleries and a foraging walk along the coast.
