Ireland Bed & Breakfast Tours

Ireland Bed & Breakfast Tours
Ireland is a country that many consider unsurpassed in beauty. It's the perfect choice for outdoor enthusiasts who want to hike, cycle, surf or walk along endless trails. Whether you choose a pre-designed itinerary, or have one custom made, a bed and breakfast (B&B) tour is an ideal way to see Ireland. Small family owned B&Bs offer gracious hospitality, along with a unique opportunity to get acquainted with the real Ireland.

Wicklow Walking Tour

Some of Ireland's most dazzling views, such as Glendalough, Glenmalure and the Powerscourt Waterfall can be viewed on the marked 79 mile long Wicklow Way trail. Select a self-guided walking tour of varying duration to suit your fitness level. Walking each day, you'll visit charming villages and marvel in the splendor of Ireland, while all your travel necessities are taken care of for you. Each day, your luggage is picked up and taken to the next B&B along the route. Maps, route details and a mobile phone are provided, along with a complete back-up service. Each B&B has a private, ensuite bathroom and provides a full breakfast each morning. This tour is offered by Green Earth Travel, who focuses on environmentally friendly travel and animal rights.
