Highlights in Ireland's Sunny Southeast

The southeast quarter of Ireland is an area that is often overlooked by tourists. A few spots, like Glendalough and Blarney Castle, are familiar favorites, but many spots on this Ireland itinerary will surprise and delight you!

Afternoon Tea at BrookLodge

Day 2 Walk in the footsteps of Irish saints at Glendalough before reliving the experience of Irish emigrants aboard the Dunbrody Famine Ship

Day 3 Tour the oldest working lighthouse in the world and work up an appetite weaving through in an incredible hedge maze. Our meal at Dunbrody House is still being arranged – but I can guarantee it will be delicious!

Sunny Southeast Ireland Tour FAQs

Dublin city is not included in this tour as a guide is not necessary in the city centre. If you wish to visit Dublin I recommend arriving a day or two before the tour begins, although you can easily add the city to the end of your time in Ireland.

Cost is per person sharing. A single supplement of €500 applies if you wish to have a single room. Family rooms and adjoining rooms will be reserved where available. Flights are not included in the price quoted.

This tour is family friendly with options for all ages and abilities. If you are interested in an ‘adults only' Sunny Southeast tour please let me know. If there is enough interest once can be arranged.
