Our Luxury Castle and Manor House Tour is the most luxurious tours you can experience in Ireland.
On this journey, you will be treated to the finest of Irish hospitality, service, accommodation and produce. It is truly a once-in-a-lifetime experience…unless – like many – you cannot resist returning after experiencing it!
Start in Dublin to feel the pulse of the capital city and her cultural charms, as well as neighbouring counties, before heading to Ireland’s west coast. Stop off in Clonmacnoise to learn more about Ireland’s mythology, religion and history. Irish people relish the opportunity to “head west” and you will do this in a style fit for royalty by staying in the five-star Ashford Castle.
Enjoy warm hospitality in your own castle where open fireplaces and quiet nooks invite you to curl up and relax in opulent surroundings. Stay in the castle itself or there is the option to upgrade to the exclusive Hideaway, a converted boathouse on the property favoured by visiting celebrities.
From your base, explore Connemara, Kylemore Abbey, seaside villages and the world-famous Cliffs of Moher (by air, boat or foot). Throughout your trip, your private Driver Guide will tailor stop-offs and detours to create an unmatched experience of Ireland.
Your final home from home will be Adare Manor and Hotel, which borrows its name from the nearby village of Adare, beloved for its delightful thatched roof cottages, lively pubs and antique shops. Sitting on the banks of the River Maigue, Adare overlooks the fording point from which the village derives its name: Ath-Dara meaning ‘The Ford of the Oak’. Expect luxurious suites individually designed to the highest of standards with stand-alone bath tubs, 19th century oil paintings, gold leaf detailing and restored heraldry.
The estates at both Ashford Castle and Adare are a country-lovers dream with falconry, horse riding, fishing and boat trips and, of course, golf (Adare is set to host the 2027 Ryder Cup).
This is a trip to truly inspire.
