Weekender Collection

Print print

Take a short city break in Dublin, London or Edinburgh - or a quick tour of Ireland's Southwest. 5-day, value-focused getaways, available November-March.

We are now offering our new Weekender Collection  – five-day, value-focused getaways. Available November through March, they include a choice of three city breaks in Dublin, London and Edinburgh and a guided tour of the best of Ireland’s Southwest.

All Weekender Collection trips combine the freedom of independent travel with an expert assist from CIE Tours’ knowledgeable guides. On the first full day, a guided walking tour familiarizes guests with their destination. On day two, a dedicated private concierge will meet with guests in the hotel lobby to help you plan out your remaining days and get the most out of your whirlwind adventure.

Options include:

 Dublin Delight: 5 days, available through March 2019

From its stately Georgian townhouses and rich literary legacy to its lively pubs and Grafton Street buskers, Dublin is as cosmopolitan as it is charming. The package includes accommodations and daily breakfast at Ashling Hotel, a guided tour of the Guinness Storehouse, and three days of access to the city’s Hop-On, Hop-Off tour bus.

 London Locals: 5 days, available through March 2019

Stay at Hilton London Paddington – centrally located to the most sought-after sites of this world-class capital- and enjoy tickets to The Original Tour – London’s most popular “hop-on, hop-off” tour bus with a choice of routes visiting the city’s top attractions, plus tickets for three walking tours (changing of the guard, Soho’s rock and roll history, and Jack the Ripper), as well as the option to take a river cruise down the Thames.

Easy Edinburgh: 5 days, available through March 2019

A rich architectural heritage and thriving cultural scene combine in one fascinating destination in Edinburgh. Stay at Mercure Edinburgh Haymarket and get three day passes on the hop-on, hop-off Edinburgh Bus Tour, with routes taking in landmarks like Parliament, Edinburgh Castle, and the Royal Yacht Britannia.

 Kickin’ Killarney: 5 days, available through March 2019

See some of Ireland’s top attractions in this four-night adventure, which is more like a classic guided experience than others in the Weekender Collection. Take in the Cliffs of Moher, Dingle Peninsula; Kenmare and the Ring of Kerry; Blarney Castle, quaint Bunratty town, and more.

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).
I had a great travel agent that organised everything
Friendly and informative tour guides, nice accomodations, we saw so much while we were there!
