Southern Ireland Tours & Vacations

Southern Ireland, or the Republic of Ireland as it is officially known, covers five-sixths of Ireland and is a sovereign country. 

Unlike Northern Ireland, you can’t use British Pounds here so grab some Euros and get ready to experience some of Ireland’s major highlights. Southern Ireland has it all, from three of the country’s best known tourist towns – Killarney, Kilkenny, and Cork – to atmospheric country pubs and rolling hillsides topped with large craggy rocks that look as if they’ve been scattered by giants. It’s the perfect spot to lace up your hiking boots and go for a ramble through the bucolic landscape or explore Bronze and Iron Age ruins with your expert leader. Exploring the Ring of Kerry and the Dingle Peninsula is also a must do when you visit Southern Ireland. You’ll be charmed by everything this destination has to offer on a Southern Ireland Intrepid tour.

Had a great time on the anticlockwise highlights tour of Ireland. We had a great bunch of people (ages 25-70ish) covered a lot of ground & sights, met some amazing locals. Guides and tour leader were very knowledgeable, approachable and friendly. Felt very supported especially as a someone new to travelling. 10/10 will recommend.

An excellent, fast-paced trip to some of the highlights of Northern and Southern Ireland. We had a great group of fellow travellers including Ruth, our outstanding group leader. Although we covered a lot of distance in a short amount of time, the trip included three 2 night stays which means less packing and unpacking. Recommend you plan days on your own before and after in Belfast and Dublin.

Such a great tour! You really get to see a lot of Ireland in such a short amount of time. Unfortunately a lot of things are closed on Sundays, which was Unfortunately timing while we were in cork but we still saw the old fort which was interesting.
