This private Ireland tour immerses travelers in the culture and history of Dublin, explores the best of the bucolic countryside in the surrounding region, and includes time at Ballyfin, the most exclusive luxury hotel in Ireland.

During touring with your private guide, see the historic highlights of Dublin, the capital of Ireland and the perfect starting point for an overview of the country’s long history. Marvel at the iconic Book of Kells (Artisans of Leisure will arrange fast-track access), and the Long Room in the Old Library at Trinity College, and tour St. Patrick’s Cathedral, one of the most important churches in Ireland. Walk in the footsteps of Irish literary giants such as James Joyce and Oscar Wilde in Georgian Dublin, a neighborhood of well-preserved architecture set around leafy St. Stephen’s Green. Also enjoy a privately guided tour of the Guinness Storehouse and free time to browse specialty shops, markets and the Creative District. Other options that can be incorporated into Dublin touring include specialty museums, contemporary art galleries, Kilmainham Gaol, distillery tours and the Chester Beatty Library. Upon request, Artisans of Leisure can also arrange private pub crawls, afternoon tea and reservations at Dublin’s best restaurants for contemporary Irish cuisine.

One day, enjoy a private excursion to County Wicklow to tour the beautiful gardens at Powerscourt. If desired, also visit Glendalough, a glacial valley with the ruins of an ancient monastery set among lakes. While there, you might like to visit historic Avoca Mill, where some of Ireland’s finest and most colorful textiles have been produced for centuries.

Continue to Ballyfin, one of Europe’s most spectacular country hotels. Enjoy a private excursion in the Slieve Bloom Mountains (with the option for hiking), a private excursion to the charming town of Kilkenny or a visit to Birr Castle, renowned for its beautiful interiors and grounds. There will also be ample leisure time to enjoy Ballyfin and activities at the hotel.

Upon request, Artisans of Leisure can arrange additional experiences in Ireland, including family activities, genealogical research, hiking, golf, visits to whiskey distilleries, garden tours, decorative arts tours, religious heritage tours, and culinary and crafts lessons.
