Kiss the Blarney Stone

Kiss the Blarney Stone

Said to give people the gift of the gab, the Stone of Eloquence is a major drawcard of Blarney Castle, as is its pretty grounds.

The Ring of Kerry

The Ring of Kerry

Travel this scenic circuit of the Iveragh Peninsula taking in views of the Atlantic coastline, dramatic mountain passes and ancient heritage sites.

The Aran Islands

The Aran Islands

In Galway Bay is a collection of islands where the landscape and clifftop forts jostle for attention, with equally impressive scenery and historic sites.

Pour a Pint at Guinness Storehouse

Pour a Pint at Guinness Storehouse

Home of the Guinness legacy which spans over 250 years, learn about the history that shaped this iconic stout and not only sample a pint where it originated, but learn to pour it perfectly.

The Cliffs of Moher

The Cliffs of Moher

Rising up to 214 meters (702 feet) from the churning water, these sheer cliffs are a highlight of the windswept coastline. It’s no wonder puffins choose to make them home when they nest here from May – July.

Recent Reviews What our clients are saying about their tours around Ireland

Irish Discovery Tour - Intensive but very good   , VIC, Australia, Jun 2024
Our Global contact was Georgie who made us welcome and was very helpful with accommodating a number of requests in setting up the booking. Joining the tour in Dublin worked well when we flew in from Bucharest the same morning and we fitted right in straight away with the pm tours of Dublin and the Guinness Storehouse. The tour over the week hit all ...read more Irish high spots with an excellent driver and very helpful guide. Although the pace of tour was hectic we did get good breaks and free time at key times/locations. Pub evening and the Hayes Cabaret in Dublin were highlights. All hotels were of a high standard.
Great Tour of Ireland     , NSW , Australia, May 2024
There were 43 on the coach yet it was really well managed and always on time. Our tour guide was Carmel, a very committed and knowledgeable Irish lady. The hotels ranged from just OK to very good. The itinerary was great. We feel we had a good overview of Ireland. Highlights were Derry, Bunratty Castle, Killarney, Dingle and Blarney Castle. Thoroughly ...read more recommended tour. We were glad we also booked a couple of extra nights in Dublin.
Wonderful Trip     , NSW, Australia, Apr 2024
Booking through Global Journey is a nice and smooth experience. However, the Costsaver online customer service needs improvement. I contacted them many times in regards to the pick up location in London at the start of the tour and none of them could give me the answer! Some gave me the wrong location!
For the tour itself, it's a well designed itinerary. ...read more We were well looked after by our tour director John. Our driver (Steve) is THE BEST! The dinner at Torphichen Inn was very pleasant and fun. Dinner & Cabaret at Taylor's 3 Rock was excellent, strongly recommend (it's worth every cent !!!). However, there was too much free time at York and it was the Sunday so all the shops closed early, so we all wandered in the dark & cold waiting to go to the bus for the hotel. Also there should be less free time in Bath so we could have more time in Windsor Castle (it was too rushing). It would be good if we had two nights and free time in Glasgow, it was a vibrant city but there was no time to check it out. Thank you for a wonderful trip.
Irish Discovery     , NSW, Australia, Mar 2024
Thank you to Georgie for making the booking process so simple. Everything was arranged very quickly and seamless from the booking, to payment to arrival in Dublin for the beginning of my trip. Georgie was very quick to respond to any questions I asked.

Just got back from doing the Cosmos Irish Discovery 9 day tour- well what can I say other than ...read more loved every minute - I went solo and chose to do all the optional extra tours & so glad I did. Our group was a good mix of young and old, couples, friends travelling together and a few solo travellers from the USA, Australia, Canada and England. We had a few teenagers travelling with family. The hotels that we stayed in were cosy and clean. On those nights where dinners were not included, the hotel locations were quite central. Breakfast was excellent with a wide variety on offer each morning. Our tour director “Deborah” was fantastic, very friendly, full of such interesting knowledge of the whole country!! She grew up and lives in Waterford and had a personal touch to her history and culture and stories she shared with us.

Jarek our driver was professional, courteous and fun and ever so considerate, like driving really slow and at a snails pace so we could all get the perfect photo. We also used seat rotation of 2 rows of seats forward each day enabled others to have front row seats on coach. The coach was extremely comfortable and included WiFi and individual USB ports for recharging phones etc on the go. The scenery was spectacular and we were fortunate to have fine weather most of the time, with just light showers on a couple of days in March.

I particularly loved the tour of Dublin City sights, Guinness Storehouse, tour of Belfast with a very reputable local guide, the Titanic Museum, Giants Causeway, the Cliffs of Moher, Galway, Dingle Peninsula, the Ring of Kerry, Muckross House, Jaunting car ride, Blarney Castle and gardens, the Tamore pub evening for the sing-a-long. All of it! A fantastic tour and highly recommend. I will definitely book with Global Journeys and Cosmos again, I particularly liked the CosmosGO app for guides, maps, tour notes to use offline. Looking forward to next trip now 😊
