Custom Ireland Itinerary Creation – 7 days for up to 5 people

(3 customer reviews)


Let my experience guide you as we work together to plan your perfect Ireland vacation.

We can start from scratch, beginning with your group’s interests, working up to attractions to visit and the best accommodations for your needs and budget.

Or, if you have a list of “must see” attractions, we will lay out a plan to help you experience as many as possible without making you feel rushed.

We work together as much as you like until you depart for Ireland; and as I get to know your group, I’ll be able to recommend activities, accommodations, and attractions to make your vacation memorable.

Your custom itinerary includes accommodations, attractions, and transportation advice (including links to custom Google maps), as well as personal tips on where to eat, nearby sites and activities that may also be of interest, and answers to all the Ireland travel questions you have.

Please note: this service is for Custom Itinerary Creation for 7 days and up to 5 people.
If your trip is longer or your group is larger please choose the Custom Itinerary Creation service that fits your needs.


You want to plan your own Ireland vacation, but need guidance.

Perfect!  There is nothing quite like planning your dream vacation.  But I know just how overwhelming planning a vacation to Ireland, be it your first or fifteenth, can be.  There is so much to see and do!

This is where custom itinerary creation can help!

We work together to plan your trip.  Unlike a travel agent selling a package vacation, I make recommendations based on your group's likes, interests, goals, and budget.

We can start from scratch, beginning with your interests, working up to attractions to visit and places to stay.  Or, if you have a list of “must see” attractions, we can lay out a plan to help you experience as many as possible without making you feel rushed.

Every question you ask during the coaching period will be answered; and as I get to know you I'll be able to recommend activities, accommodations, or attractions to create Ireland vacation memories that will last a lifetime.

I'll coach you in everything from attractions your group will love and transportation options that fit your travel style, to budgeting in a luxury castle and dining experiences worth trying.

When you're happy with the plans we've laid out you will receive a detailed itinerary, filled with helpful tips, links, and maps to guide you as you explore Ireland.
The itinerary is delivered in PDF format that can be printed or loaded onto a mobile device, as well as a web link to access the mobile version of your itinerary.

What Travelers are Saying:

Dear Jody,

We got back from Ireland yesterday, and through my jet lag, I wanted to write you. I don't even know if I have the words for what a spectacular vacation it was. We loved it–so much history and natural beauty, and the people could not have been friendlier everywhere we went. I don't even think I've processed it all yet.

I wanted to thank you so sincerely for all of your help planning this amazing trip. I never would have known, on my own, where to go or how long to spend at each stop. You listened to our interests and planned a trip that worked perfectly for us. I loved arriving at each place and having a carefully edited list of possibilities to choose from. It made our trip all the more fun and less stressful. I'm so, so glad I found you online! I would recommend your services strongly to anyone wanting to go to Ireland. (And feel free to quote me!)

How I Create Your Itinerary

Ireland itinerary creation begins with a 30 minute phone call. I use this time to get to know you and your group, to understand your trip goals, Ireland vacation dreams, and any concerns or questions you may have.

I follow the phone call with a summary email.  From this point, itinerary creation takes place via email. This way you have everything in writing- including website links, phone numbers and email addresses. If necessary we can set up future phone calls for clarification.

Your consulting services lasts until you leave for your trip.  Of course the majority of the work takes place over the first few weeks, but I am available to you until your flight lifts off (and even during your trip if need be!) to answer your questions, calm your nerves, or assist with last minute changes.

After Purchasing Custom Itinerary Creation you will be taken to the order confirmation page. Under Order Details is the link to book your phone consultation.  Please do book your consultation as soon as possible to avoid disappointment.

The link will also be in your email receipt. Please be sure to add jody@irelandfamilyvacations.com to your safe senders list. Please check your spam folder if you don't see an email in your inbox. If you do not receive an email from me please email me directly at the above address.

Because I personally handle all travel coaching, I accept a limited number of clients per month. Be sure to book your consultation as soon as possible.

  1. Imelda (verified owner)

    Jody helped me plan a trip to Ireland with my family, which included my two little children ages 3y and 18m. Was it ambitious? Yes. Could I have done it without Jody – no!

    She is very responsive, and highly knowledgeable about Ireland, especially fun things to do with children. She provided helpful tips and a thoughtful itinerary that was culturally enriching.

    Overall, I am very pleased with Jody’s services and would highly recommend her to anyone looking to travel to Ireland!

      Thank you, Imelda, for the lovely review. I am so pleased that your young family enjoyed Ireland! It was a pleasure to help you plan your trip!

  2. Cindy Ladage

    My experience with Jody and Ireland Family vacations was amazing. Our trip was delayed two years because of COVID, and Jody and her team kept in touch with us and worked with us to curate the perfect anniversary trip for us. Everything went smooth and was excellent. Because she worked with us every step of the way and held our hands, I felt confident traveling in the post pandemic world and enjoyed my trip immensely. Ireland is a beautiful place and Jody knew exactly what we were looking for with our guidance of what we were looking for, she helped us realize the perfect anniversary trip.

    • Jody Halsted

      Thank you, Cindy, for the kind words! I loved helping you with your trip and am so glad that it was everything you hoped it would be!

    I started working with Jody on a custom itinerary in January 2020. Needless to say, our trip was put on hold for two years for obvious reasons. However, this did not mean that Jody was done with her job. She kept in touch throughout the two years and when we were ready to start planning for our March 2022 trip, she went straight to work on making the changes we needed since our plans took a drastic change – adding both the St. Patrick’s Day parade in Dublin and the Limerick marching band competition to our itinerary. She really knows her stuff and included different stops/activities along our way that made the trip rememberable. One of our favorite suggestions she made was the Adare Manor falconry experience (well worth the money). Not only are you learning and interacting with the birds, but you’re doing so on the most beautiful and pristine grounds. We were also very pleased with the accommodations she recommended in each town – no complaints at all.

    Most valuable to us was her help when arriving to Ireland and realizing we could not get a rental car for our trip because my husband’s license had expired and I was not willing to take a stab at driving. I emailed Jody and she immediately reach out with very thorough options for each area we were visiting. One option we really enjoyed was her recommendation to hire Jonathan with Private Drive Chauffeur. Not only was he our driver, but also tour guide. This turned out to be the highlight of our trip (next to seeing our son in the St. Patrick’s Day parade in Dublin, of course!).

    Thank you, Jody, for sticking with us and seeing it through. We really couldn’t have done it without your help!
