Authentic Vacations has been in business since 1989.    Our culturally-diverse staff of destination experts are not only specialists in travel but have intimate familiarity with Ireland, Scotland and England as tourist destinations.   From much-frequented regions to lesser-known gems off the beaten path, we understand varying appeals and are committed to planning itineraries that revolve around the needs of the client.   In addition to offering custom tours from scratch, all of our vacation packages are fully customizable.

We’ve planned hundreds of thousands of itineraries over the years and are fully dedicated to making each one of our client’s experiences memorable and exceptional.

While many of our competitors take a call center, vacation-in-a-box approach to travel, we pride ourselves on our premium client support and the personal touch that goes into each and every itinerary design.  We believe it’s what makes us unique.

Beyond planning the perfect, custom itinerary for each of our clients, we offer all-important peace of mind while traveling.  We understand the stress that accompanies traveling to another country and with offices in Ireland, the US and Canada, we offer round-the-clock support to our clients while they’re abroad.  Be it travel advice, itinerary changes or assistance in the event of emergency, we are on standby to help in any way we can.  With Authentic Ireland, you can enjoy stress-free travel knowing that we have your back every step of the way.

Authentic Vacations believes that travel should always be a positive experience which is why we’ve put a number of flexible policies in place which contribute to stress-free travel planning.

We don’t believe budget restrictions should prevent anyone from booking travel plans which is why we only require a 20% deposit in order to book any self-drive and chauffeur tours.   You can pay in increments as long as you are fully paid up within six weeks of your scheduled departure date.

If for whatever reason you have to cancel, there are no cancellation fees for up to 14 days from your travel date.    You are issued a full credit which you can apply to another vacation as long as it’s scheduled within a year from date of cancellation.   Read more about our risk-free policies here.
