Little Gem Ten - Popular Attractions in Ireland

The best way to discover the highlights of Ireland are on a private, bespoke tour. See some of Ireland's most popular destinations away from the crowds. Here is some of our favourite must see destinations in Ireland...


Galway City

Immerse yourself in the culture and creativity of this eclectic city with a bustling atmosphere and strong community spirit. The colours in this maritime town give an insight into the cultural diversity of the West of Ireland.


Small portioned fields separated by low stone walls roll out to the sea edge and drop dramatically to reveal the earths under-armour as the cliffs lay bare for all to see. Standing over 220metres in height this awesome attraction never fails to mesmerise. Further along, the cracked spread of limestone fosters tiny pockets of budding flowers providing a welcome splash of colour.


Standing dramatically off the west coast of Ireland this alluring shard of rock off the Kerry coastline was once a sanctuary for early Christian monks in an effort to get closer to God. The only inhabitants found there these days are breeding seabirds and the odd member from the Star Wars production team.


Wind your way along the breathtaking driveway of Ireland’s North Eastern coastline. Savour the awesome views of Scotland, dare to cross the exhilarating Carrick-a-Rede rope bridge and let your imagination run wild at the Giant’s Causeway.


Howth Head

This beautiful fishing village nestles into the foot of Howth Head, a charming peninsula north east of Dublin City, offering you a bird’s eye view across the bay. This is the perfect place to experience the culture, heritage and adventure of Ireland, all on the doorstep of Dublin City.


Catching the sun as it bursts through the MacGillycuddy's Reeks and the Purple Mountain of Kerry and illuminates the windy stream and gleaming glacial remnants is the perfect reward for your hike from Kate Kearney’s cottage. A tour of the Kingdom of Kerry captures all the elements of Ireland.


The still valley of Glendalough is filled to the brim with intriguing history and serene nature conjuring an indescribable feeling of mystical tranquility. A tour through the Wicklow Mountains brings you this incredible monastic city. An ancient place of learning and spirituality.


Newgrange & The Boyne Valley

Be transported back to the beginnings of Irish civilisation in this magnificently mysterious Neolithic tomb which is older than Stonehenge and the Great Pyramids of Egypt. A tour into the inner chamber will bring you to the threshold of Ireland.


The haunting hills of Connemara sloping down to a bounty of hidden inlets along the Wild Atlantic Way is truly one of the most evocative and enchanting of Ireland's Gems. A drive through the serene setting will bring right you into the heart of old Ireland.


Magic Mayo

Home is where the heart is and Mayo certainly holds the heart of our founder Maggie, who with complete bias nominates Mayo as the must-see place in Ireland. There is no better feeling than heading west towards the island speckled clew bay to spend a few days exploring the national park, climbing the reek, reminiscing at the sight of Clare Island and predicting the weather over a pint of Guinness in one of Westport’s finest taverns. A perfect Irish experience.
