WHAT YOU GET
7 nights accommodation
7 nights in Hotel
Charming Irish hotels will be opening their doors to us for 7 spectacular nights. Accommodation is twin share, or you can throw a bit of extra coin down to snooze solo.
11 included Meals
4 Dinner, 7 Breakfast
Wake up to a Irish breakfast every day. 4 dinners will also be included - think hearty stews and lashings of potatoes and choose to wash it all down with pots of that black liquid gold folk call Guinness.
Team
Expert Trip Manager, Driver and Local Guides
A highly trained Trip Manager who brings your adventure to life. An expert driver who knows foreign roads better than Google Maps. Local Guides who make tourist traps a thing of the past. This is your team. Smart, friendly, fun, and integral to everything we do.
Transport
All transport included during the trip
Included in your trip is transport across Europe on our fleet of comfy, state of the art coaches. They're kitted out with all the necessities: USB charge points, WiFi, Air Con and a rocking sound system. You bring the other essentials, like tunes, friendships and stories from the night before.
Your group
Travel with other 18-35 year olds from around the world
Our trips are exclusively 18-35. This means you'll be travelling with people just like you, from all over the world- laughter and friendships always guaranteed.
Experiences
3 included, 6 optional that you can add
Expect all the best bits of idyllic Ireland to be included as standard. Wander gorgeous castles, explore the majestic Cliffs of Moher and kiss the famous Blarney Stone to gain the gift of eloquence (and the germs of millions before you).

Think you know about Ireland? Our 8-day trip offers the full Irish experience. Visiting historical Galway, gazing out from the Cliffs of Moher, and taste-testing Guinness come as standard, but exploring the Jameson's Distillery & seeing the UNESCO World Heritage site of the Giant’s Causeway? Well now we’re talking.

DAY 1 - Arrive Dublin
Dublin
Céad míle fáilte, meaning one hundred, thousand, welcomes is what you get in this city packed with heritage, character, and more cute pubs than you could crawl in a week. Meet up with your Trip Manager this afternoon, then meet your new travel squad for dinner and then end the day with a lively night of festivities at the cobbled lanes of Temple Bar. Guinness, anyone?
Stay
Clayton Hotel Leopardstown (or similar)
DAY 2 - Dublin to Cork via Kilkenny
Dublin
That's us done with Dublin…for now. But fear not Dub-lovers, we'll get another taste of this fine place before our trip comes to an end.
FREE TIME ADD-ONS
Jameson's Whiskey Distillery tour
GBP 16.00
Guided bike tour of Kilkenny
GBP 18.00
Kilkenny
Break up your coach hangs with some bicycle time in a village sure to leave you wanting Irish in your blood. It's a castle, a cathedral & mountains of medieval charm before we hit the road again for Cork.
Cork
Welcome to vibrant Cork! But not before the chance to sample some of Ireland's famous whiskey at the Jameson's Distillery in Middleton. Yum! Even when the skies are grey, Cork is covered in colour and good vibes. Stroll the River Lee or grab your first Guinness in the comfort of a pub, if you didn't get your hands on one in Dublin.
Stay
Oriel House Hotel Ballincollig (or similar)
DAY 3 - Cork to Galway via Blarney and Cliffs of Moher

Hopefully you exhausted all of your cork puns yesterday, as today we are moving on, sightseeing our way to 2-nights in Galway.
NO REGRETS INCLUSIONS
Galway Walking Tour
Visit Blarney Castle
See the Cliffs of Moher (weather dependent)
Blarney
Irish folklore tells us there's a chunk of limestone built into a castle that grants its kissers the gift of the gab. Pucker up kids, we're paying her a visit!
Cliffs of Moher
If heights aren't your cup of English Breakfast, you best sit this one out. Spine tingling, nail biting cliff faces are there to tremble at for those without fear.
Galway
From the moment we arrive in Galway, you'll understand why 2-nights were needed here. Everything you've dreamed Ireland to be is tucked into this small, atmospheric city. Step into a local pub and down Irish stew over live music and chats with locals. Outside will be just as lively, with buskers & colourful buildings lining the streets.
Stay
Travelodge Galway City Hotel (or similar)
DAY 4 - Galway
Galway
Try your tongue at some Gaelic and carry on exploring gorgeous Galway. Or, if you hear the call of the wild, you can sign yourself up to a ferry ride to Aran Islands (summer departures only) where you can dance around with horses and take a bike ride around the picturesque farms, or head up to Dún Aonghasa (the ruins of a prehistoric fortress) - make sure you take photos, this area is not for the faint-hearted! Irish life, you so sweet.
FREE TIME ADD-ONS
Boat ride to Aran Islands (summer only)

Here in Londonderry, 17th century walls stand at 8 metres high speaking of times gone by when this area was in battle. Times may have changed, but we're still keen to soak up the history and learn a thing or two from our wise Local Guide.
Stay
Waterfoot Hotel Londonderry (or similar)

Laters Londonderry, we've got a one way ticket to Belfast and a whole lot more exploration to do.

An absolutely great trip to show you all the main spots (and some of the not so main ones) in Ireland! Shout out to Francesca and Spaghetti for being a great tour manager and absolutely excellent driver, respectively. Great way to travel Ireland with minimal organisation on your own part, with great top of the travel bucket list inclusions (Cliffs of Moher and Giants Causeway) and add ons that are good value and lots of fun. My only word of warning is it's part of a modular tour and you come on right at the end of a longer tour that starts in London. If you're not extroverted (or able to fake it till you make it) I'd recommend starting in London because it can feel a bit tricky at first to integrate yourself into the group otherwise, but generally speaking everyone in the Contiki fam is lovely, and your tour managers make sure everyone has opportunity to mingle and meet people!

Some of the hotels we stayed at were not what we expected to stay at for what we paid for trip and we weren’t informed about places being shutdown due to the holidays till the day before, so that could of been planned out better.

please explain why we had to pay so much when half of out things were cancelled and we had to have all our own meals on Christmas day. furthermore as compensation Contiki gave us the cheapest walking tour as 'a favour and apology for messing up youir christmas trip' the last evening in Belfast, yes we were in town and close to night life. however the beds in most of the rooms werent made and they wwere ridiculously small. ironically the other hotel names we stayed at out of town also had places IN town. why not use one hotel name for all stops through out and get the contiki group IN town and at better rates as you build customer relationships. simple business skill really.

Amazing value and inclusion for price paid. The additional cost for the free time add-ons was fair as well! I would suggest they switch the hotel in Belfast. It was a lemon compared to the rest of the hotels used throughout the tour. I believe people would be willing to pay even $50 more in tour cost to have a better quality hotel there.
