Southern Ireland Tours & Holidays

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.

This trip was wonderful and our group leader was awesome. I enjoyed the optional group dinners and meeting new people. The tour gives you a good taste of Ireland in a short amount of time. Galway and the Aran Islands were my absolute favorite for food and exploring. All in all I learned so much more about Ireland and saw a lot of beautiful landscapes.

An excellent trip , A great way to see the fantastic country of Ireland. .It would be difficult to see all the out of town great sites that Intrepid take you too by yourself. Many of those great out of town sites you would not know about.

This was a fantastic trip. A great way to see the countries in a short amount of time. Giant's Causeway, Cliffs of Moher and the Ring of Kerry were definite highlights. Theresa was an excellent knowledgeable guide.
