Hidden Ireland

Price: From

Find your own patch of Ireland away from the madding crowd on our Hidden Ireland tour. Do you want to avoid the touristy towns? Would you like to explore areas of Ireland that most other travelers (and many Irish!) don't visit? Well then our Hidden Ireland tour could be perfect for you. We have selected areas of Ireland that are beautiful and have much of interest to offer, but are generally ignored by first and even second time visitors because they are a little out of the way or are not well known. We invite you to take a chance. Come and see the real Ireland. A Hidden Ireland Tour will renew your curiosity and fuel your sense of adventure.

This tour kicks off on the shores of Galway Bay before heading northwest through Connemara and Mayo to the little treasure that is Westport. From there you will continue northwards to explore amazing Donegal before returning south to discover the Shannon river and its many lakes. Finish up in Ennis, the alternative traditional music capital.

A FABULOUS TRIP!We just returned from 12 days in Ireland and we all agreed, it was the trip of a lifetime! We had 6 people in our group and we chose the luxurious private chauffeur tour. What a great decision! With Lonna’s expertise, we were able to map out a route that took us to all the places we wanted to visit. Our driver Mark Ryan was the absolute best!! He was extremely knowledgeable of Irish history and folklore which enhanced our tour greatly. He even knew the places we’d like best for lunch! He was very accommodating of our needs and interests and was particularly mindful of my husband who has mobility issues. Lonna’s guidance and recommendations on our hotel and castle stays was invaluable. All of our hotels and reservations for activities went very smoothly and the breakfasts were scrumptious. We love the Irish people who struck a heartfelt chord in all of us!A big Thank You! to Authentic Ireland and Mark for the best trip ever and a wonderful Fáilte Ireland!!(I’ve already recommended Authentic Ireland to two other interested parties!)

“Ireland self tour”

Jun 18, 2018 by Mark Dorsey. Your Hometown: Columbus oh

We just did 8 day self tour of Ireland. Alaina did a great job from first contact of knowing we wanted to go to Ireland but not much more. She worked many options throughout the months leading up to our trip. We needed hotels with a/c which is not easy in Ireland and she found them in the towns we wanted to see. Gave great ideas on sights to see between towns. Upon arrival in Dublin and walking to rental car checkin and said oh yes your are all set I knew that it would be a good trip. All of our hotels were easy check-ins, our dinner show no issues. I know she did a lot of work to make sure all was right for our trip, plus saved us not having to put a large deposit with rental car dept. Also say thanks to all the other people in office who would answer questions when I called, always took time to fully explain issues I might have. Thank you for a great family vacation.

Great trip! I told Lauren what things each of my kids wanted to see and she arranged everything and was so helpful with last minute changes. Stayed in Dublin and Galway and went on a couple of day tours. The weather was perfect! Beautiful sunny 72 degrees! Accommodations were great. We've gone through other travel agencies in the past where the accommodations left a lot to be desired. Will need to go back to see the rest of the country!

“Amazing Trip!”

Jun 18, 2018 by Erica. Your Hometown: Tennessee

My husband and I went to Ireland for our honeymoon because it was something different to do and we have always wanted to go. This trip was amazing! We got to pick everywhere we wanted to go and how long we wanted to be in each town. We got to see things that we would never have known about due to their suggested sightseeing. Easily our favorite trip so far! I loved using this agency so much, I am booking our `1 year anniversary trip to Scotland!

“Our Scotland Adventure”

Jun 18, 2018 by Kimberly Webb. Your Hometown: Atlantic Beach FL

This was our first trip to Scotland but it won’t be our last. It was perfect in every way. Megan did a wonderful job of listening to what we wanted and all of our accommodations were fabulous. We had no hassles w/ rental car. We got to see things at our own pace. We got to meet some wonderful people along the way.
