It's St. Patrick's Day and the Emerald Isle awaits

Today is St. Patrick's Day! While this is a particularly exciting time to explore Ireland, it remains a truly alluring destination for any visitor all year round. 2020, however, is a great year to visit because Galway has been crowned the year's European Capital of Culture, so interest is bound to pique. There really is no better time to start planning your Emerald Isle adventure than now and we have two exciting holidays on offer that can take you around this magnificent country. 

A Short Irish Break

If you're looking for a brief trip to Ireland, or you have a few days at the end of an existing vacation to fill, why not book yourself on to our Gardens and Wildflowers of the Burren tour. At just 4-days long, this is a short but sweet introduction to the country's magnificent landscape and flora. 

You'll explore privately-owned gardens that give an insight to gardening in this corner of Ireland, you'll admire dramatic vistas from the Cliffs of Moher, and there will be a visit to the megalith known as Poulnabrone Dolmen. In the stunning valley of the River Caher, you'll wander among the Caher Bridge Garden, and there will also be an exploration of the Burren with a local expert. 

This vacation departs on 2nd June and starts from just £995pp. Click here now to view the full itinerary or to book your place. 

A Longer Stay Among Ireland's Beautiful Gardens

Alternatively, if you would prefer a longer holiday, why not book a place on our Irish Rover tour? At 8-days long and starting from £1,495pp, this is a great way to explore the Emerald Isle and its magnificent landscape. Travel in the company of popular garden designer, writer and broadcaster Trevor Edwards, through the country's hotspots in search of its stories and more. 

We can offer exclusive access to the new private garden of Helen Dillon (doyenne of Irish gardeners), you'll explore the extensive and enchanting gardens of Mount Stewart, and there will also be a visit to the historic island gardens of Ilnaculin. To wrap up a memorable tour of Ireland, we will also bring you to Blarney Castle and Gardens, which is most famous for its stone – legend has it that anyone who kisses the stone will enjoy a lifetime of eloquence. 

This tour departs on either 14th May or 13th August, and you can view its full itinerary by clicking here now
