A tour with an excellent vintage, the seven day Driftwood is a fantastically comprehensive Irish tour experience. Its relaxed and flexible itinerary covers some of Ireland best scenery and historical sites; there are visits to some of Ireland's greatest stately homes and gardens; Free times to wander and explore the local communities we visit; excursions to a whiskey distillery, excellent accommodation, food, Irish pubs and much, much more.

We will take you to some of Ireland best know tourist destinations like the Blarney Stone, the Ring of Kerry and the Cliffs of Moher but because our groups and vehicles are smaller, we will also take you right away from the beaten track and show you our favourite hidden corners of Ireland.

Firstly we head south west, through the green heart of Ireland and counties Kildare, Tipperary and Limerick to County Cork. We then spend the next 4-5 days exploring the fabulous south west of Ireland and its varied peninsula's before then weaving our way from County Kerry across the great River Shannon into County Clare.

Once here you have the limestone lunar landscape of the Burren to explore, you will have some of the very best traditional Irish music to enjoy in the Pub, we you have the cliffs to marvel at and there is also the option of a day trip to the world famous Aran islands (you visit the islands while we drive around Galway bay and pick you up on the other side).

Last but certainly not least is the wild and rugged Connemara region, a remote and beautiful area which has a special place in the hearts of the Irish people. Nowhere quite typifies old fashioned Ireland like Connemara and so it makes a fitting location for the last night of the tour. And from there on the last day we head east, back to Dublin either via Galway city or through Cong in County Mayo (depending on whether you went to the Aran islands the day before), maybe stopping in Kilbeggan on the way for a bit of whiskey tasting to round of an unforgettable week.
