Camillus croke, transport manager, ann doherty, alison lonergan, private guided tour consultant, testimonials.

Best Tour Company in Ireland – October 2023 We just ended an eight day tour with Colin, our driver and tour guide. I can't say enough positive things about both Colin and Ireland Chauffeur Travel. Everything was first class, from the accommodations to the luxury Mercedes Sprinter we traveled in. Alison and Ellen helped plan a fabulous itinerary and Colin made sure we saw and did anything we wanted. He even managed to find the site of the church where one of our friend's grandparents got married. We told him we would like to see sheep herding and the next day it was the first thing we did. If you are looking for a first class experience, this is the company.
Use the nicest people to plan your dream trip to Ireland! – September 2023 The MOST accommodating, friendly, supportive, helpful people ever to arrange our trip! Somehow, they got all of our requests fit into our agenda even adding last minute stops requested. Sarah was so kind and helpful. Bob, our driver, was easygoing, helpful, and accommodating. we hope to go back to Northern Ireland, or maybe an agriculture intensive tour, and would only use Sarah and Bob! Trust me... use them!
A Magical Trip! No better way to discover Ireland! – August 2023 I will start by saying we had the trip of a LIFETIME with Ireland Chauffeur Travel. My husband and I decided in July to book a trip to Ireland for August (4 weeks before our travel date) with our two young children, and we never could have done this without Ireland Chauffeur Travel, Alma, and all of their incredible staff and experience. Our itinerary was spot-on and we loved their recommendations for places to see and hotels to stay in. Possibly the BEST part of our trip was Toby, our driver/friend, who went above and beyond to make my family and I content during all moments of our stay. Thank you for a magical experience through the most beautiful country. We can't wait to come back!
Hire a driver to see Ireland – July 2023 Definitely hire a driver to see Ireland. Mike was our driver was absolutely the best! He was so knowledgeable about the history and sights it gave us a much richer experience than we would have had following a map. Many times he pulled into places that we wouldn’t have known about that were absolute gems. Another benefit was that because we were on our own schedule, we got to linger in the places we loved and leave early from the places that didn’t interest us. I can’t recommend this trip enough.
A Wonderful Adventure- June 2023 My husband and I, along with our four other friends, thoroughly enjoyed an incredible weeklong trip through Ireland in June, thanks to Ireland Chauffeur Travel. Bob Noonan (our driver/tour guide) and Alison Lonergan (travel advisor) were absolutely amazing and I can’t thank them enough. We felt SO lucky to have Bob as our guide! His impressive deep knowledge of Ireland’s history and culture really made a huge difference in our experience on this trip, and he went out of his way to show us so many beautiful landscapes. We all appreciated his accommodating, flexible, thoughtful, friendly, humorous, and kind spirit. I would totally recommend Ireland Chauffeur Travel to anyone planning an Ireland trip and give them five stars! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ - Landers Family, June 2023
An Irish experience beyond what we thought was possible – May 2023 We have just completed an amazing tour with Ireland Chauffeur Travel. Alison Lonergan worked with us and put together an itinerary that covered everything we could have hoped to see and experience. Our guide Siobhan Morrissey, was more than we could have hoped for. Her extensive knowledge of the country and her ability to share it with us was impressive. She went out of her way to ensure we saw everything possible and showed us many hidden gems. She was also incredibly helpful in dealing with the logistics of wheelchair travel. She is incredibly kind and patient. These two women gave us an Irish experience beyond what we thought possible. - The McKim Family, May 2023

Bespoke Experience

Iconic dublin.

A private guide will pick you up at your Dublin hotel and take you on a journey to experience the moving history and beating heart of Ireland’s capital. Walk in the footsteps of heroes and rebels, poets and tyrants as you navigate a turbulent past and an enthralling present. The Irish struggle is etched into the fabric of every sidewalk of this city – so is the humour and the hope. Cross the River Liffey, pay tribute to those who heroically gave their lives for freedom on famed O’Connell Street, explore genius at Trinity College – the stomping ground of Ireland’s greatest writers and home of the extraordinary Book of Kells. We will stop to try some Guinness at Temple Bar and visit Dublin Castle – a fascinating bastion with a troubling and illuminating past, a place where Irish history, fables and legends come together to tell the story of Dublin in a glorious clash of Celtic contrasts. This is a tour of Dublin’s Greatest Hits. This is our story.

This guided tour is designed to be a walking tour. However, if you would prefer to add an exclusive vehicle with a private chauffeur, please select the option during booking.

Iconic Dublin and Beyond

A private guide will pick you up from your Dublin hotel and together you will journey from the City to the Sea. After a morning experiencing our Iconic Dublin tour, seeing the best of the Irish capital, we will head into the countryside to soak up the chocolate box charm of a fishing village called Howth. On the way, enjoy sweeping views of Dublin Bay and spot the ruins of an 8th Century church on a deserted island. In Howth a mouth-watering fresh food, delicatessen and handmade crafts market awaits. We will stop for a delicious lunch of fresh seafood or Irish stew, washed down with a pint of traditional Guinness or cider. A chance to mingle with the friendly locals. Then, experience the imposing Howth Castle, see its rhododendrons gardens and the historic ruins of its Abbey. To end the day, we make our way up the rolling hills for a view of the stunning Irish coastline – rugged cliffs, lonely lighthouses, picture book panoramas. A wonderful day to experience the best of Ireland – our Capital and her countryside.

Glendalough – Myths and Legends

With your private guide and driver picking you up from your Dublin hotel, embark on an epic journey to discover the emerald jewel in Ireland’s crown – the mysterious and spiritual Glendalough. Also known as the ‘Valley of the Two Lakes’, it is home to the country’s most enchanting monastic sites. Timeworn stone crosses, a Mediaeval tower, scattered churches, fallen cathedrals and pagan ruins – Irish folklore etched onto each stone that pervades this mythical and stunning landscape. Bask in the Celtic twilight as you soak up the myths of the kings, queens, monks, saints and giants, who together make up the legends, history and psyche of Ireland.

En route, you will experience iconic countryside – winding country lanes, idyllic hidden beauty spots, rolling lush pastures and meandering rivers. Nestled in the heart of the valley, you will explore the lakes that give Glendalough its nickname – hidden amongst wooded glades and teeming with unspoilt wildlife, the changing skies reflected in their crystalline waters. Hauntingly beautiful – a place for reflection and contemplation – as you become one with the Spirit of Ireland.

Galway and Cliffs of Moher

With a private guide and driver picking you up from your hotel in Dublin, we will head west to the Wild Atlantic Way – Ireland’s most spectacular coastal route. Awesome cliffs, sculpted by stormy weather, hidden beaches and vast horizons merge as one to inspire and invigorate. On our way, we will cross the Irish heartland to reach Galway – arguably the country’s liveliest town. Traditional Irish music, street performers, sumptuous food and Guinness pervade a musical and laughter infused population. Mingle with welcoming locals in a gorgeous pub, peruse the quaint boutiques and cafes that line the colourful streets of this charming town nestled at the footsteps of looming mountains and glassy lakes. Then, on to the Cliffs of Moher – spectacular, towering, immense. Unearth the legends and secrets of these rocks and stand at the precipice of nature – dazzling and ferocious – step on to the cliffs and look out West over the vast Atlantic Ocean where Ireland’s diaspora have made the voyage West in hopes of a better life. Standing here you feel like you are the only and luckiest person in the world. Galway and the Cliffs of Moher tell the story of a soaring and free Ireland.

What Our Clients Say

You wont find a better tour.

Our recent trip was a phenomenal success. The pre-trip process was very easy. Because we had enough to fill the entire bus, Ted worked very closely with us to help design a custom tour, and it went off without a single issue. That's impressive. Once in Ireland we were guided by Larry. He's an Irishman's Irishman. He's got the knowledge, personality, sense of humor and driving skills that makes him the best driver we could have asked for. I promise if you use Ancient Ireland Tourism, you will have a great trip.

Cannot Recommend Highly Enough

If you are the type of traveler who wants more than a tour-bus, drinking-fest, dash-around kind of experience, then USE THIS COMPANY. They are fantastic. Our guide was Larry, who is not only great at his job of knowing Ireland inside and out and driving you where you need to go, but he is also a brilliant man who knows his history with a wicked sense of humor and a kind heart. He felt like a dear friend within a day of knowing him. We left a lot of our activities up to his discretion and he never failed to deliver us to the right places. (If you love history, do not miss Uisneach and the expert Justin.) Ted was our initial contact and he was extremely responsive to all questions and the details of our booking. I cannot emphasize how happy we were with our experience with this company. But, please, if you are sort of fussy, demanding people who want things to be exactly the way you planned them and will blame the tour guide for anything that isn't as you imagined, then maybe look elsewhere because I cannot stand to think of wonderful Lar having to endure that! I sort of wish I could keep them a secret for the fun and special people! Thank you so very much, Larry and Ted. We are forever grateful for our time with you and beautiful Ireland.

A tremendous journey all customized

My wife and I had a group tour for 8 days. We wanted to continue on our own after the group concluded and didn't have a clue where to begin. I found Ancient Ireland Tourism and were set in contact with Ted who listened to our ideas, then set up a proposed itinerary with options and B&B choices. Once we chose our options he finalized an itinerary, complete with built-in links, confirmed reservations and set up a custom Google map that guided us flawlessly through our 950 mile excursion beginning at Shannon/Ennis into the Connemara region, to the West coast line up to the N. West, into Donegal in the far North, and finally ending in Belfast in N. Ireland. A tremendous journey all customized by Ted at Ancient Ireland Tourism. And very cost effectively as well. I highly recommend their service.

Our small groups guarantee Never more than 26 guests per tour

We always keep our tour group sizes small. That's because we want every guest to get the comfort, space and service they deserve. Although many other companies squeeze in groups of up to 50, even the largest of our tour packages are strictly limited to just 26 guests. That leaves empty seats on the coaches. So why do we limit our tours to such small group sizes? Here are six reasons.

Superior Service

Guests consistently list our small group sizes as a top reason why they would book with us again. See our reviews...

More focus on you

With a smaller group, our tour guides have more time to get to know you and your interests.

We deliberately leave empty seats on our coaches, so you can relax and spread out.

Experience each attraction up-close and personal, with more time to ask questions and see what interests you.

Speedier Check-Ins

Compared with many of our rivals, our smaller group sizes make checking in and out of the hotels a breeze.

More Relaxed Pace

Experience Ireland at your own pace. No rushing to keep up and no waiting around for large groups to assemble.

Day 1: Cliffs of Moher - The Burren - Galway

Cliffs of Moher

They say first impressions are the most important, so we have a simply stunning introduction to Ireland waiting in store for you as your first stop on this 8-day itinerary will be at the world-famous Cliffs of Moher.

Cliffs of Moher

Neither words nor pictures can fully capture the power and grace of the Cliffs.

Rising over 200 meters high and spanning 8 kilometers along the wild Atlantic coast, the Cliffs provide stunning views of the Aran Islands with the ocean crashing below. Your driver-guide will be able to inform you of all the folklore and myths that surround this incredible testament to the beauty of nature.

It is not just the setting of the cliffs of Moher that will blow you away, fans of wildlife and bird watching will want to spend hours here appreciating the Puffins, razorbills, Kittiwakes, and occasional peregrine Falcons that call the area home.

Take a break and enjoy a spot of lunch in the picturesque coastal village of Doolin. Tradition is the name of the game here, so be advised that you will not find any chain restaurants or modern coffee shops in the tiny little village, but your guide will direct you to the best places to enjoy a traditional Irish meal.

Next on your driver-guided tour is The Burren, a region famous internationally for its landscape and flora. Most of the Burren is designated a Special Area of Conservation to protect this extremely unusual habitat of Limestone Pavement, Calcareous Grassland, Hazel scrub, Ash/Hazel Woodland, Turloughs, Lakes, Petrifying Springs, Cliffs, and Fen.

The word “Burren” comes from the Irish word “Boíreann” meaning a rocky place. An invading Army Officer once said, “here there is not water enough to drown a man, wood enough to hang one, nor earth enough to bury one”.

Arrive at your Accommodation in Galway

Your driver will take you to the stunning little coastal village of Galway for your evening meal and accommodation for the night. Before checking in for the evening, your guide will be happy to tell you where to find the best traditional food and music venues to spend the evening enjoying a Guinness or two!

Day 2: Croagh Patrick Mountain & Westport

croagh patrick mountain Ireland

Beginning with your guide collecting you from your hotel, you will make our way to a historic mountain that takes its name from our Patron Saint after St Patrick was believed to have fasted here for 40 days all the way back in 441 AD!

Croagh Patrick Mountain

Croagh Patrick, nicknamed the Reek, is a 764 meters (2,507 ft) mountain and an important site of pilgrimage in County Mayo in Ireland. It is 8 kilometers (5 mi) from Westport, above the villages of Murrisk and Lecanvey. It is the third highest mountain in County Mayo after Mweelrea and Nephin. 

It is climbed by pilgrims on Reek Sunday every year, which is the last Sunday in July. It forms the southern part of a U-shaped valley created by a glacier flowing into Clew Bay in the last Ice Age. Croagh Patrick is part of a longer east-west ridge; the westernmost peak is called Ben Gorm.

To get an authentic flavor of Ireland it is essential to visit some of our villages and mingle with the locals, and small towns don’t come much more charming than Westport in county Mayo.

Alongside getting to know the local folklore, Westport has many ways to spend an entertaining afternoon with your guide, there is the Great Western Greenway, Achill Island, Clare Island, Clew Bay with its 365 Islands, and Westport House. That’s before we even begin to mention the gorgeous scenery, white sandy beach, and of course fantastic choice of restaurants and bars to enjoy before retiring to your Westport accommodation for the night.

Day 3: County Clare Private Tour

Kylemore Abbey Ireland

This morning after breakfast, you will be picked up by your driver-guide and taken to explore Connemara National Park.

Here you can admire the incredible scenery in a place where rugged mountains dominate the dramatic landscape that covers 3,000 hectares of, scenic mountains, expansive bogs, glorious grasslands, and enchanting woodlands, a place where you will have the chance to see Connemara Ponies, Red Deer, and birds including Peregrine Falcons. 

Your first stop in the park will be the Visitor Center where guides will be on hand to provide information about the park including the wildlife within the park and walking trails you can enjoy regardless of your trekking experience.

Kylemore Abbey & Victorian Walled Garden

Next, it’s the iconic Kylemore Abbey. Kylemore was built in the late 1800s by Mitchell Henry MP, a wealthy businessman, and liberal politician, who, inspired by his love for his wife Margaret, and his hopes for his beloved Ireland, created an estate boasting ‘all the innovations of the then modern age’. Kylemore is now owned and run by the Benedictine community of Nuns who have been in residence here since 1920.

To round off the days traveling, your driver-guide will drop you off at your accommodation in Co Clare.

Day 4: Bunratty Castle, Adare & Dingle Day Tour

Bunratty Folk Park & Castle, Ireland

Today you will get to know some historic Ireland as your driver-guide takes you towards the wonderfully picturesque Dingle Peninsula.

Bunratty Castle

On the way, we will first stop at Bunratty Castle and its Folk Park. Here you will visit the acclaimed 15th century Castle, the most complete and authentic castle in Ireland. 

The site on which Bunratty Castle stands was in origin a Viking trading camp in 970. The present structure is the last of four castles to be built on the site. You will take a tour of this iconic fortress; hear and see how the lords and ladies of this castle lived; hear stories of battles and bravery and enjoy stunning views across the idyllic Clare countryside.

The Folk Park, set on 26 acres of unspoiled Clare countryside, is a treat for persons young, old, and in-between, and features over 30 buildings in a ‘living’ village in a rural setting. Farmhouses, village shops, and streets are recreated and furnished as they would have been at “that time” according to their social standing, from the poorest one-roomed dwelling to Bunratty House – a fine example of a Georgian residence that was home to the Stoddarts, the last family to occupy the Castle.

Adare & Dingle

Before we reach the Peninsula your guide will take you to discover Adare, a quite typical village in the Midwest of Ireland. Your driver-guide will take you on a trip to explore the mysterious ruins and churches which surround the village and whisper of its rich history.

Antique shops, galleries, restaurants, and cafes, sit side by side. Make sure to make time for a wander around this magical village, pause in a cozy pub for a well-earned pint, taste the food and see why ‘a hundred-thousand welcomes’ is actually an understatement.

Your driver-guide will deliver you to your accommodation in plenty of time to enjoy the traditional Irish town of Dingle.

Day 5: Slea Head & Dingle Sheepdog Demonstrations Private Day Tour

Slea Head Drive Ireland

This morning after breakfast your driver-guide will collect you from your accommodation and will be on hand to take you to explore all the sights on offer in Dingle and the surrounding area.

Slea Head Drive, one of Ireland’s most scenic routes, takes you on a journey through historic sites, Irish-speaking villages, famous Hollywood film locations with close-up views of the world-renowned Blasket Island, and distant views of the Skellig Islands on the southwestern horizon.

The Slea Head Drive is a circular route, forming part of the Wild Atlantic Way, beginning and ending in Dingle, that takes in a large number of attractions and stunning views on the western end of the Dingle Peninsula.

Sheep Dog Workshop

Now located in the Slea Head Famine Cottages are working sheepdog performances. Visitors can view a local sheep farmer skillfully working his sheepdogs in gathering and controlling sheep movement. This skill has been handed down from generation to generation as sheep have been kept here on Mount Eagle for hundreds of years.

Visitors are also given valuable insights into the sheep farmers’ way of working. Learn how local farmers could forecast the weather long ago, tell the time when many of the poor could not afford a watch, or even how they managed to communicate with relatives living ten miles away.

After exploring Dingle & all it has to offer, your driver-guide will return you to your accommodation for the evening.

Day 6: Muckross House, Torc Waterfall, Killarney National Park Private Day Tour

Killarney Nationalpark

Today your driver-guide will collect you after breakfast and you will make your way to the famously beautiful Co. Kerry. There are many stops along the way,  and when you arrive in Killarney you can enjoy taking a stroll through the streets of this quaint town to enjoy the great pubs, restaurants and enjoy the traditional Irish music on offer.

Muckross House

First is Muckross House. This nineteenth-century Victorian mansion bearing all the necessary furnishings and artifacts of the period is set against the outstanding beauty of Killarney National Park. As a focal point within Killarney National Park, Muckross House is the ideal base from which to explore this landscape.

Torc Waterfall

Following on from this, you will visit the famous Torc Waterfall which is located close to the entrance to Muckross House. From the viewing point, you will have a view over the Middle Lake as well as the falls themselves. 

You will marvel at the falls that are a 20-meter high, 110-meter-long cascade waterfall formed by the Owengarriff River as it drains from the Devil’s Punchbowl corrie lake at Mangerton Mountain and sits at the base of Torc Mountain.

Killarney National Park

Killarney National Park is your next destination, located south of Killarney City, in County Kerry in South West Ireland. It stretches along the banks of Lough Leane and Muckross Lake and covers a total area of 102.89 km2.

Killarney is the very first national park to be established in Ireland in 1932, is a very popular tourist attraction, for its diverse nature and amazing scenery. The park is of high ecological value because of the quality, diversity, and extensiveness of many of its habitats and the wide variety of species that they accommodate, some of which are rare. The park was designated a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve in 1981.

The park contains an expanse of rugged mountainous country. This includes the MacGillycuddy’s Reeks, the highest mountain range in Ireland.

You will stay in Killarney for your accommodation on this night. You will love walking the streets of this historic little town with its colorful 19th-century buildings.

Day 7: Ring of Kerry & Skellig Ring Road Driver-Guided Day Tour


Sure to be a highlight of your Best of the West trip, your driver-guide will collect you from your accommodation in the morning and take you to explore the stunning driving route known as the Ring of Kerry.

The Ring of Kerry is the ring road that follows the coastal contours of Kerry’s Iveragh Peninsula. The Ring is one of Ireland’s most famous circuits, but it’s much more than a simple driving route, the Ring of Kerry is an iconic destination wrapped in stunning visual history.

This scene-stealing route beginning and ending in Killarney takes in all the big hitters – Moll’s Gap, the Torc Waterfall, and the Gap of Dunloe are places you will see, but really, the route itself is so much more than the sum of its parts. Within this 179km of tarmac road, you’ll find that each turn brings a new treat to the eye, from lakes, rivers, and waterfalls to grand houses and castles, and there is really nothing like breathing in the fresh Kerry air as you drink up the incredible views around you.

There is also an established walking path named The Kerry Way, which takes its own route, and a signposted Ring of Kerry cycling path which uses older quieter roads where possible. The Kerry Way roughly follows the scenic driving route of the Ring of Kerry.

As if that isn’t enough for one day, you will also take a trip along the Skellig Ring Road, one of Lonely Planet’s top 10 rated destinations. 

From this little-visited 18km stretch of road, you’ll get lovely views of the Skellig islands from most of the coastal stretches on the Ring of Kerry. This small detour off the main ring follows the coast through the villages of Portmagee and Ballinskellig, providing you with great views of the Skellig Islands.

Next, we will take a short detour from the road to the famous mountain pass, the Gap of Dunloe, which slices through the MacGillycuddy Reeks. The narrow road winds through the pass into the Black Valley passing five beautiful lakes.

The glacial valleys of Moll’s Gap are one of the most dramatic views on the Ring of Kerry route. On the road between Killarney and Kenmare, Moll’s Gap boasts the ultimate view of the MacGillycuddy’s Reeks Mountain range, the predominant mountain range of the Iveragh Peninsula. It derives its name from Moll Kissane who set up an illicit bar here during the 19th century. Moll’s Gap is the highest point on the Ring of Kerry with a 235-meter climb.

Ladies View is the first viewing point you’ll meet, or the last, depending on which direction you drive around the Ring. Named after Queen Victoria’s ladies-in-waiting who saw it in 1861 and gaped in awe at the majestic valley spreading out before them. Just 16km from Killarney, it provides a panoramic painting of the lakes and mountains of Kerry.

After your Ring of Kerry tour, your driver-guide will return you to your Killarney hotel.

Day 8: King John's Castle - Airport Transfer

King John's Castle

And finally, we reach your last day touring Ireland with us! Today we’ll head for either Shannon or Dublin airport in time for your flight. 

If your group chooses to fly out of Shannon Airport, then we could possibly have time to visit the impressive King John’s Castle in Limerick.

King John’s Castle

The castle has a turbulent history dating back to Viking times and has undergone several sieges, battles, and triumphs over its long history, this is one of Limerick’s most iconic landmarks! Here you will discover the stories of ruthless King John, the noble knights, and rebellious natives.

King John’s will bring to life for you close to 1,000 years of dramatic local history. You will explore the courtyard where you’ll get a sense of the bustling activity that took place all those years ago. You will discover a medieval campaign tent, a blacksmiths forge, and scenes from a seventeenth-century siege. The sights, scents, and sounds of the Castle and its environs combine to recreate the atmosphere of the era. On your journey, through King John’s you can expect to see some lively characters as well as getting the chance to visit a state-of-the-art, technologically advanced visitor center.

After you’re tour – you might want to take a break to relax in the café, the perfect place to unwind while enjoying the views of the castle courtyard and the River Shannon before we head to the airport and bid your group Slán leat until next time!

2. private dingle peninsula full-day tour .

Private tour guides in ireland

⭐️Rating: 5 out of 5 stars, with 39 positive reviews

⌛️ Tour length: 7 hours

Speak to any local and they’ll probably recommend that you visit the Dingle Peninsula, and for good reason. 

This area is beautiful, accessible (with this tour!), and hopelessly charming. 

When you’re driving up to Dingle Peninsula, you’ll also go past the Wild Atlantic Way, a tourist route that covers most of Ireland’s west coast, from Northern Ireland all the way to the south. 

While that route is staggeringly long, the journey up to Dingle just covers a part of it – the Slea Head Drive. 

You’ll get to visit key spots like Beehive Huts, view The Blasket Islands, and even get to hold a baby lamb!

Your private tour guide, a local, will provide a personalized tour experience where they’ll pepper your journey with facts about Ireland, its history, and its culture as you take in the views. 

The Private Dingle Peninsula Full-Day Tour includes:

  • Private transportation from Dingle accommodation 
  • English-speaking tour driver guide 
“We had an amazing day with our guide. He picked us up at our hotel in Killarney and we spent the day on the peninsula.  Although it was rainy and cool, we still had good visibility of all the major sites. He took us to several archeological sites and we even held a baby lamb. Lunch was in Dingle which is a colorful charming town.  The mountain passes are spectacular and the beaches are beautiful. As a native, he knew so much about the area, both past and present. We thoroughly enjoyed our day.” – Joy L (Read more reviews )

⌛️ Tour Length: 8 hours 

Prefer scenic views compared to city life? Don’t worry you can still get that even if you’re visiting Dublin. Just take this private tour which will bring you out for a day to the breathtaking Wicklow Mountains. 

Wicklow Mountains National Park has it all – valleys, streams, scenic winding roads, and amazing coastal views. It was also the backdrop of many famous films like P.S. I Love You and Leap Year. 

The tour will pick you up at any location of your choice. 

You’ll then embark on a picturesque drive into County Wicklow, during which your experienced guide will share stories and facts about the places you are about to visit. 

En route, you’ll also get an opportunity to visit the Powerscourt House Gardens in Enniskerry where you can also grab a cuppa and some pastries at a cafe. 

Your drive to Wicklow will be undoubtedly scenic but your guide will also make sure you get your fair share of picture-worthy pitstops along the way. 

A lunch stop near Glendalough is included but you’ll need to bear your own cost for food and drinks. 

Because of the tour’s nature, they’ll also be happy to accommodate any other stops and attractions along the way – just speak to them and they’ll work something out! 

The Wicklow: Private Day Tour from Dublin includes:

  • Hotel pickup and drop-off
  • Experienced English-speaking guide
“Our guide, Gillian, could not have been better. She was knowledgeable, friendly, and full of incredibly interesting tidbits about the area and its history.

Depending on your preferences, your day could include a kayak to ancient ruins, a mountain hike, and even rock climbing. We hear the kayak trip even includes a trip to a castle ruin that is only accessible by water. 

Lastly, no trip to Ireland is complete without a classic Irish pint in a rustic pub – your guide will make sure of that! 

This experience is hands-down one of the most fuss-free experiences because they’ll handle all the activity preparation and payment. You just need to bring yourself!

On one of the days we did kayaking and it was so much fun!  He is very professional, skillful and trustworthy. Marcus is full of knowledge and experience to make your trip the perfect experience in Ireland.  Definitely made me want to come back to Ireland and I would highly recommend Marcus Magee and Rural Adventure. Thank you Marcus.” – A Tripadvisor Reviewer (Read more reviews )

6. Dublin: Private Jameson and Guinness Half-Day Tour by Bus

9. Jewish History of Dublin: 3-Hour Walking Tour

Private tour guides in ireland

This tour will take you through “Little Jerusalem”, the area which once housed a vibrant and thriving Jewish community, and also takes you past the Irish-Jewish Museum (but does not include entry). 

You’ll also visit key Jewish highlights like the oldest synagogue in Ireland and the only kosher bakery in the country – where you’ll also get a chance to have some coffee and some Challah bread. 

Your guide will tell you about the history of the Jewish community, share little facts about these places, and also update you on what has become of this historic community and space.

“We booked the tour to get a feel for Jewish Dublin. I have a Masters in Jewish studies and am the Director of Jewish Learning at a synagogue in the US but really had very little knowledge of the Jewish community of Dublin.  Our three hour tour turned into a five hour in-depth experience with our insightful and brilliant guide Fergus.  We strolled through the Jewish sites of Dublin hearing tales of the Jewish experience and for me filling in a gap in my knowledge of Jewish history.  The tour culminated in the delightful Jewish Museum of Dublin where Alex (Director of Dublin’s Tours) gave us insights into the museum’s collection and then a volunteer docent of the museum took over. The experience is one of a kind. I highly recommend.” – A GetYourGuide Traveler (Read more reviews )

The Dublin: 3-Hour Irish Revolution Walking Tour includes:

  • English-speaking tour guide with Irish history background
  • Complimentary packet of photos and maps of the revolutionary period 
“We could not have enjoyed our tour with Alexander more. He was so knowledgeable about a huge range of subjects and kept us interested and engaged all the time.  The tour was incredibly well put together and we all learned so much. I think I can honestly say it was my most enjoyable few hours walking around Dublin, ever.  Alexander gave us more than 100% of his time and attention, having tailored everything to our needs. I could not recommend the tour highly enough and will certainly be booking another in the future.” – A GetYourGuide Traveler (Read more reviews ) 

11. Dublin: 3-Hour Irish Literature Walking Tour

Private tour guides in ireland

⭐️Rating: 4.9 stars out of 5 stars, with 18 positive reviews 

You should go for this tour if you’re a literature fanatic and are visiting Dublin for its rich literary history.

Dublin is home to three Nobel Prize in Literature winners, so it is really no surprise that you’ll find the Irish capital city oozing with little tidbits and the history of these great writers.

This tour is led by Alexander, an entertaining and engaging English literature graduate from Trinity College Dublin. 

He promises an immersive and informative experience around Dublin’s literary highlights and heroes. 

He has such rave reviews that we’re quite sure he is easily one of the best private tour guides in Ireland when it comes to literature tours. 

You’ll walk past Oscar Wilde’s former home, hear readings of famous writers along the way, hear a ballad sung in the Gaelic tongue, see an exhibition featuring W.B. Yeats, and even visit a bar where great writers used to hang at. 

The tour also includes entry to many Dublin must-visit spots including the National Gallery of Ireland and Trinity College Dublin. 

The Dublin: 3-Hour Irish Literature Walking Tour includes:

  • English-speaking guide with an English literature background from Trinity College Dublin
  • Entrance to the National Gallery of Ireland
  • Entrance to W.B. Yeats exhibit
  • Entrance to James Joyce Center
  • Entrance to Seamus Heaney exhibit
  • Complimentary information booklet on Irish literature and documentaries on great Irish writers 
“I chose to do the Irish Literature Walking Tour and I’m still pondering it weeks afterwards. Alex was an erudite and warm tour guide. We talked, walked, did readings, walked more, sat, chatted, walked and had a pint.  I will recommend this to anyone who is passionate about Irish literature or who wants to make a start on the journey.  It’s simply one of THE BEST tours I’ve ever taken and has inspired me greatly. Thank you, Alex, for your afternoon, I was privileged to share it with you.” – A GetYourGuide Traveler (Read more reviews )

7-Day Great Atlantic Adventure Small Group Tour

My family of 8 did a private 7 day tour from Doolin up the West Coast into Northern Ireland and back down to Dublin. Since the moment he arrived, Finn was amazing. He is so genuine. In no time he felt like family. Finn is knowledgeable, not only about the Irish culture, landscape, history, sports, but just about everything! He went above and beyond to ensure we had the best time in Ireland. Once he discovered out our Irish connection, he researched and found places and stories tied to our family name, all while we were on the tour! He is extremely flexible. We were also traveling with three children, all Elementary school age. The kids are very into sports and Finn actually showed them how to play hurling! The kids absolutely adored Finn. You felt Finn's love for his country and his eagerness to share all of it with us, a true gift. We will be returning to Ireland in the near future and would only want to tour with Finn. The absolute best!

5-Day Spectacular South and West small group Tour of Ireland Tour

5-Day Spectacular South and West small group Tour of Ireland

We had a group of 10. The small sized tour was perfect. Our driver, Eoin, was the best! He was knowledgeable, friendly, funny, and very accommodating to the group. We were so blessed with a great group of people to travel with and Eoin just topped it off. He went out of his way to treat us to Taytos cheese and onion chips, and even organized a birthday cake and card for a woman on our tour. What a way to go above and beyond! The stops and destinations on the trip were everything we were hoping to see and do. The accommodations and breakfasts were great. We had some rain and winds so the timing of our kayaking was delayed a bit and we ended up kayaking in Killarney, which turned out to be fantastic! Slea head drive was moved to the following morning and it was bright and sunny and beautiful!! I never would have thought to watch a sheepdog demonstration, but it was so interesting, and the specific family we stopped to tour with were authentic and so welcoming. Then we visited the Cliffs of Moher. Our birthday girl wanted to walk to path from the visitor's center all the way to Doolin, which is not part of the actual tour. But it was our personal choice, so all of us on the tour ended up joining her and walking it. The views were spectacular!! It was so worth the very long walk/hike. Getting out in nature was the reason I had booked the zest trip. My son and I have had such a great vacation so far. We actually have a tour of the North booked with a different company this next Sunday, and it has a lot to live up to! I can update my review to give a proper comparison of our experiences when we've finished that tour.

The Celtic Voyage - Multi-Day - Small Group Tour of Ireland Tour

The Celtic Voyage - Multi-Day - Small Group Tour of Ireland

We were really happy with the tour and the accommodations were lovely. There was a lot of driving the first two days, and due to the weather, we didn't have much time out of the van, but the next few days we got a lot more time to explore places. The guides (we had Andy, Michael, and Matthew) were all excellent - knowledgeable, entertaining, friendly. The only reason I rated as 4 stars was because we went in March, and the weather was really messy - very windy and rainy. That's not the tour's fault - I understand that. However, when reading through the itinerary and the possible add-ons, there was no indication that things might not be available to us in the beginning of their season. For instance, there was a dance show listed as an add-on that didn't even open for the season until April, a boat ride that also didn't seem open for the season yet. We still had a great time, but I would recommend that they tour group is more transparent with what add-on activities will actually be available, and which are completely dependent on the weather.

8 Day Castles & Coast Experience - Small Group Tour

Our tour started off in iconic Dublin, journeying along the scenic West coast of the county and ending in Cork. The group size was small and everyone got on very well. Sean, our guide was very knowledgeable about the areas we visited and was happy to answer any queries. He was an absolute pleasure! The tour itself was moderately active, with room to add in more activities during the free time. I would advise travellers to pack clothes for wet / cold conditions even during the summer months! All the stops along the way were lovely and picked with great care. My personal favourite was Killarney with the national park and local sites. We paid a little extra to get the private accommodations which were a wonderful option and had superb breakfasts. All in all a very well planned tour! Thank you

Matthew and Dermot were absolutely fantastic! Very knowledgable and easy to talk to. The itinerary was well thought out, the driving to destinations was fun and never too long, and the tour had options for everyone. Our guide Matthew often made dinner reservations for us if we desired so we could try some of the best food and get to know the tour group. We had 13 people in our group and the tour felt very personalized. Overall, I would for sure take a tour with Wild n Happy again!

Reviews of Fully Guided Tours in Ireland

Exceeded my expectations. Culture, landscapes, language, history, activities…so much in just a week. Accommodations were very comfortable, food was delicious and plentiful, people were welcoming and generous. Our guide (Pat O’Mara) made the entir3 experience an absolute joy. He was knowledgeable, told stories and histories in a folksy and humorous tone. He was competent, flexible, and inspired with a clear love of his own country that made us love it too.
Thoroughly enjoyed the trip but would have been better if other countries were included in the history instead of catering only to the USA. Australia and New Zealand have a huge history of immigrants from Ireland and our population, roots and culture are very Irish. Would have been nice to hear about that instead of all about the USA
Excellent trip, particularly for those who wish for an active fun holiday, lots of bike riding, hiking, kayaking. Also good finding out about this area of Ireland. Pat was a terrific guide and very interesting with lots of information on Ireland and its history. He was also very helpful with hints on restaurants etc. Good trip Many thanks
