Explore a little deeper. Laugh a little louder. Remember a little longer.

At Authentic Vacations, we help you experience a more meaningful kind of travel. We create handcrafted and customizable vacations, guaranteed to linger long in the memory… and leave you with stories to last a lifetime. 

The Authentic Story

As the originators of authentic travel, we’ve been designing tailor-made vacations to Ireland and the UK since 2001, long before ‘authentic’ was just another buzzword. In the two decades since, our horizons have expanded to destinations around the world, but our goal – of providing you with the most meaningful, original and transformational travel experiences – remains the same.

Why? Because we believe travel means more when it’s authentic. 

From the spontaneous meal shared with locals to the unexpected delight of a new experience, new places and cultures have the capacity to enchant and inspire like nothing else. Leaving you to return home refreshed, reinvigorated… and ready for your next adventure.

Local to everywhere

In travel, everyone promises authenticity… but few can deliver it. Our Destination Experts are different – friendly, enthusiastic and passionate about what they do, each can draw on a wealth of first-hand experience and local knowledge to craft your ideal vacation.

When you book with us, you’ll be provided with your own dedicated Destination Expert. They’ll work closely with you to create a fully customizable itinerary, tailored to your unique tastes and filled with the one-of-a-kind accommodation and activities you won’t find elsewhere.

Iconic sights. Phenomenal food and drink. Or the simple bliss of relaxation. Whatever kind of travel experience you dream of, it’s our goal to make it a reality… and create a vacation that borders on the magical.

Trusted companions

We’re one of the world’s most trusted names for authentic travel, and longstanding members of trade bodies including the USTOA, the IATA, the Irish Tour Operators Association, and the Travel Leaders Group. And, as part of a global network of respected travel specialists, we can draw on an unparalleled store of local knowledge to ensure you receive a vacation you’ll never forget.

And our commitment doesn’t end when you board your plane. From the moment your trip begins, we provide on-the-ground support across continents and timezones from our many global offices, so you can enjoy your time in total peace of mind.
