Renovated Irish castleExplore the riches of Ireland your way and at your own pace with this flexible vacation. Pre-booked hotels allow you to relax without worrying about where to stay each night. Choose from over 250 hotels to suit every taste and budget. If you prefer discovering the local way of life in an informal setting and relaxed atmosphere, select from over 1,100 Bed & Breakfasts for as little as $60 per night. You can also mix and match – stay a few nights in hotels and a few in B&Bs. Or why not experience the luxury of an Irish castle or manor? Live like royalty in a hotel rich in history and character.

Renowned for its twisting, winding country lanes, Ireland showcases its breathtaking scenery around every curve. Traveling independently in a rental car with unlimited mileage, you’ll be able to customize your itinerary based on your interests: You may want to visit Blarney Castle and kiss the Blarney Stone; visit the Cliffs of Moher for wonderful coastal views; see the Iron Age forts and Ogham stones at the breathtaking Ring of Kerry; explore the unspoiled Connemara region, filled with misty mountains and sparkling lakes; or take a “Connemara Lady” catamaran cruise on Killarney Harbor.

Busy street in DublinAlong the way, experience the highlights of the countryside and its stunning colors, especially the fabled Irish green in all its storied intensity. The Irish, you figure, are lucky, indeed. You'll also encounter some of the world’s most dramatic scenery and warmest people. If you're an independent explorer, or just want to enjoy an intimate adventure with family or loved ones, this is the Ireland vacation for you!
