Travel in the winter for a fun vacation at a great price
Enjoy Ireland in the "cozy season" – when the prices are lower and the crowds smaller, but the welcome is as warm as ever.
Summer might seem the natural time to travel - but Ireland's magnificent scenery is green all year round! And the winter might be the perfect time for you to experience the wonders of this beautiful island. The main attractions will still be open, and you'll find shorter lines at all the busy highlights.
For the budget-minded traveler, there's no better time. Flights will be lower priced - and we here at CIE Tours have some great deals! To start, we have the Evergreen tours - two group vacations custom-designed to take advantage of winter travel. These tours will take you to see incredible highlights and stunning scenery at amazing prices:
Evergreen Ireland South visits many of Ireland’s classic highlights, such as the Cliffs of Moher, the Guinness Storehouse, and Blarney Castle, and offers plenty of free time to explore Dublin, Killarney, Waterford and Kilkenny. Warm yourself with a creamy Irish coffee at the oldest pub in Europe, Sean’s Bar.
Evergreen Ireland North also visits Sean’s Bar after a day in Dublin, then heads to vibrant Galway before heading up to Donegal and Belfast. Special stops along the way include the Giant’s Causeway and the charming town of Carlingford, rich in medieval heritage. Enjoy dinner with traditional music at the Crosskeys Inn, the oldest thatched pub in Ireland and a CIE Tours exclusive venue.
These two tours depart November through March.
Two of our most popular tours are also available all year:
Taste of Ireland takes in the classic highlights like the Ring of Kerry, Blarney Castle, the Cliffs of Moher, Dublin, and more. The tour is available in various lengths, and Galway is available on some tours.
Irish Adventure offers those classic highlights but circles the entire island, also taking in Donegal, Derry, Giants Causeway, and Titanic Belfast.
