A package to explore the famous & secret sights of Ireland

First, you must know: “The Craic” is not only the Irish word for fun, but an integral part of the Irish culture. Hence, to have the craic should be a core experience of your Ireland adventure. Therefore, with this 2-week Ireland itinerary, I’m making sure you get the real Irish craic and the best vacation experiences from Northern Ireland to the Cliffs of Moher.

Besides visiting the most famous tourist attractions and important historic sights, you will also discover Ireland ‘off the beaten path’ and get to sample the unique tastes of the Emerald Isle. As well as sampling Irish whiskey and visiting distilleries, you’ll also have lots of opportunities to indulge yourself on home-made treats and enjoy the catch of the day overlooking the wild Atlantic coast.

This Ireland itinerary takes you from Dublin, all the way to Northern Ireland’s capital Belfast, for a brilliantly guided tour through the history of ‘the troubles’ that divided the island for many years. Then, we’ll be heading for the Causeway Coast to discover the Giant’s Causeway and to visit spectacular landscapes, that were used as film sets in the Game of Thrones.

Following the Wild Atlantic Way southwards, we’ll be discover more of Ireland’s best kept secrets, enjoy scenic guided walks along the west coast and explore the traditional pub culture of lively cities like Galway.

As a highlight of your Ireland trip, you’ll be staying on Aranmore and Clare island. These Irish isles are perfect to dive deeper into the Irish lifestyle and mingle with the locals for a pint, a live music session or to learn a few traditional Irish dance moves.

Therefore, I’ve mixed famous tourist attraction like the Giants Causeway, the Cliffs of Moher and Galway with destinations a little further off the beaten path.

Clare Island Whiskey

Clare Island Whiskey

Do you like your uisce beatha served with a unique experience and a good story?
Then you should add the Clare Island Whiskey to your vacation experiences from Northern Ireland to the Cliffs of Moher. I'm delighted to build your trip around this unique adventure.

Fully Irish - whiskey, culture & heritage

A fully Irish fortnight, that’s what I like to call this tour. Mostly, because everything about it is as Irish as it comes. First of all, you will visit the Titanic museum, learn about the famine and find out out what caused so many Irish to emigrate all over the world. Furthermore, I’ve planned a tour of Belfast with a former IRA member and a visit to Derry, to give you insights into the troubles that caused the split between Northern Ireland and the Republic. We’ll visit different whiskey distilleries, heritage museums and folk villages. Of course, you’ll get to enjoy Irish music, traditional dance and the lively and famous Irish pub scene. Most importantly, there will be lots of opportunities for you to chat with locals, to find out what they think about Ireland’s deep history, and how the Irish live their life today.
