An extensive self-drive trip, exploring the island of Ireland from top to bottom.

Enjoy your own self-drive tour throughout the whole of Ireland, from the Wild Atlantic West Coast and islands to the geological splendour of the Giant’s Causeway in the North. We’ve captured this as a 16-night self-drive holiday, though, of course, we can always tweak it, shorten it or extend it to suit your exact requirements.
