Ireland is all about its people, its stories and slower pace. We love to chat with our visitors in a friendly pub or on quirky streets. We are curious, (some might say nosey) about our visitors and love to listen to where they come from, and where they are going. There is always a story to tell or a secret to share with visitors. There are no strangers to the Irish, just friends they haven’t met.

The Beautiful Southwest Tour is the best of scenery, seashore, rolling green pastures and wild Atlantic waves which create a thoroughly memorable experience. The talent of creative chefs all along the western shores has put the Southwest in the forefront as a top food and holiday destination.
