Must do experiences and highlights around Ireland
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
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
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
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
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.

What our clients are saying about their tours around Ireland
“Incredible way to venture around the historical countries of Great Britain and Ireland”
Amazing trip which allowed individuals to meet like-minded people whilst travelling and exploring the historical areas of Great Britain and Ireland. The Contiki road crew were amazing and very knowledgeable of the locations and highlights explored. The accommodation, included extras and add-ons were all excellent and great value for money. I would definitely book another Contiki trip and use Global Journeys in doing so.

Great trip, wonderful way of being introduced to Ireland. Special mention goes to Liam the driver/guide for very informative and friendly service and going above and beyond for retrieving a lost wallet of a fellow tour member, 5 stars!!!!
