Top Five Reasons to Visit Britain and Ireland

A journey through Britain and Ireland will take you through the history and timeless beauty of Ireland, Scotland, England and Wales. Our favorite picks of the best experiences on offer in Ireland and Britain include:

  1. The excitement of London: Tour the heart of London and see Piccadilly Circus, Trafalgar Square, Westminster Abbey, and Big Ben. View Kensington Palace, the Tower of London, and the Houses of Parliament. Then cruise along the River Thames for an entirely different perspective of the city.
  2. The many charms of Dublin: Dublin is a lively city known for its poetry and wit. Delight in the many Georgian squares and graceful landmark buildings, as well as the striking modern architecture of this vibrant city. Have a pint in a pub frequented by James Joyce, listen to buskers as you shop on Grafton Street, or check out the many museums in this storied place.
  3. The Inishowen Peninsula: This area of Donegal is remote and visited by relatively few people – but the rugged coastal scenery is gorgeous and well worth exploring. One particularly noteworthy point is the Amazing Grace viewing point – it looks out to sea at the point where slave-trader John Newton endured the storm that would change his life: as he nearly died, he turned to God for mercy, eventually converting back to Christianity, renouncing his work and becoming an abolitionist. He is most remembered for, of course, the song Amazing Grace.
  4. The Beatles’ Liverpool: Fans of the Fab Four can make a pilgrimage to their hometown: tour sites associated with the world’s most influential rock band, Go on to explore pop music history at the British Music Experience, which tells the story of British music through costumes, instruments, performance and memorabilia. Top it off with an evening of live music at the world famous Cavern Club.
  5. St. Andrews: This seaside town northeast of Edinburgh is home to the oldest golf course in the world. As golfer Bobby Jones once stated, “I could take out of my life everything but my experiences here in St. Andrews and I would still have had a rich and full life.” Learn the history of golf at the British Golf Museum, or just stroll the town and soak in the atmosphere.

CIE tours made everything extremely easy. We booked online and had them arrange our flights and transportation to and from the airport. When we finally met up with the tour group a day late, due to bad weather and flight delays, we found out that we had the best guide and driver, Colm Clarke. He was AMAZING- very accommodating and cheerful throughout the whole tour. He kept us informed and entertained all at the same time. I've taken several tours and he surpassed any guides I've dealt with by far. The stops and sights planned are excellent and truly give you a taste of Ireland and Scotland. I found the hotels to be comfortable with good service. I cannot stress how much I enjoyed this tour and how hard I;m working to get back to Ireland as soon as possible. Of course, I'll be booking with CIE again and requesting Colm (Seriously, he is the BEST).
