Adventure at your own pace

Explore Ireland on your own on our self-drive tour packages. We'll set you up with a rental car, a well-crafted travel itinerary, and the freedom to linger at a favorite spot a little longer—or stop to take in that perfect bit of scenery along the way. If you're looking for the perfect Ireland self-drive tour, you've come to the right place.

Itinerary planning secrets

If you're ready to plan your own vacation to one of our destinations, here are a few things to keep in mind.

  1. Check out our current tour lineup for ideas. You'll get a sense of the must-see attractions for each destination, plus unique ideas that might appeal to you.  And if you find an itinerary you love, you could do it as a 'follow the bus' self-drive option, which gives you freedom to spend more time at the attractions you love the most, while still offering you our best rates on your accommodations and attractions.
  2. Make your bucket list. Have you dreamed of learning how to pour the perfect pint at a real Irish pub or spending the night in a real-life castle? Is your family wild about horses or serious history buffs? We can craft itineraries focused on exactly what you want to do. 
  3. Sit back and enjoy your trip. We do the legwork, so you can relax and savor every moment. 
  4. Want to get started by browsing our hotels? Check out our Vacation Builder!
