It is very difficult to predict the weather in Ireland - in the summer from May to late September is generally seen as the most pleasant time to visit. Rainfall is difficult to predict - but Ireland does not receive as much as many are led to believe! In the winters, temperatures do fall, but there is nothing better than finding a remote pub with a roaring fire to sit beside after a long walk in the country.
A visit to Ireland is full of unexpected special moments. It might be a break in the clouds that reveals a distant island bathed in shimmering light; or arriving unannounced at a remote country pub to find your dinner ready for you and some Irish fiddlers striking up. This itinerary showcases the best of Ireland featuring iconic luxury hotels, a range of privately-guided tours and a wealth of local experiences and activities to truly immerse yourself in the charm of Ireland.
This wonderful introduction to Ireland begins in Dublin's fair city, where you’ll stay in the heart of the city, so you have an excellent base as well as the services of our fantastic team to help you explore.

Your final stop takes you to the very heart of Ireland to County Laois and the charming, boutique country house of Ballyfin. The relaxed setting here, surrounded by parkland and the stunning Irish scenery is the perfect way to end your trip where you can choose to be as active or relaxed as you wish. Perhaps you might like to head to the boating lake with one of the hotel’s rowing boats, take a walk around the grounds, or simply cosy up next to the fire with a good book and a glass of Irish coffee in hand.
