UK & Ireland
Holidays to UK and Ireland offer a great mix of city fun and glorious countryside. Enjoy many a boisterous night with your travel mates at the pubs of London, Dublin and Edinburgh. During the day, even the uninitiated would find it hard to resist the awesome architecture, significant history and multitude of grand castles that these cities and their surroundings are home to.
To really experience the magic of Scotland and Ireland, leave the big cities and head into the highlands, lochs and stunning coasts. Explore the dramatic Isle of Skye in Scotland as well as the many picturesque lakes and castles that dot the countryside. In Ireland, head out of Dublin by self-drive and explore awe-inspiring sights such as the Cliffs of Moher, the Ring of Kerry and the Dingle Peninsula.
Customise the itinerary to suit your preferences: tweak the city-countryside balance, add more leisure time or more places to explore or choose to do only parts of the itinerary such as only Ireland or only Great Britain and so on. As always, we are happy to customise your itinerary exactly the way you want.
