Little Gem Irish Accommodations

A Varied Selection of Boutique & Luxury Style Accommodations


We belief variety is the spice of life and our multi-day private excursions of Ireland include an incredible selection of accommodation styles. 

A typical 7 day private tour may include a couple of nights in a boutique style B&B overlooking Dingle Bay, followed by a luxury Guesthouse facing the breaking waves of the Atlantic Ocean in Spanish Point. Your experience could then take you into a luxurious 5* castle stay where you can live like a king or queen and then finally end in a luxury farm cottage in the heart of rural Mayo where you can experience Ireland  like a local. It is this variety that makes Little Gem's private tour itineraries extra special.
