Tour length

8 days



Step back in time and enjoy the unique luxury and history of a castle stay in Ireland. Experience the very best of Ireland with this package. 

First we transfer you to your first class hotel in Dublin where you are free to explore this wonderful city for two days. On day three you will pick up your rental car and continue your adventure discovering the beautiful Irish countryside. Your bed and breakfast vouchers are a great way of immersing yourself in the culture and lifestyle of Ireland while introducing you to one of the country’s main attractions—its people. Finally, we add a stay at a 4-star castle (pre-booked).

The breathtaking surroundings, exceptional service and deluxe accommodation will have you feeling like royalty for a day!

This 8 days "Go As You Please" driving holiday has an open itinerary.  You decide where to go and when.  

Online B&B booking website: www.reserveabandb.com You can use this link to browse the selection of B&B Ireland homes. You may start booking at any time. 
RESERVE YOUR B&Bs:  Type the location you wish to stay in the search box and enter in the date and number of people in the party, then click Search.  From the resulting list of B&Bs you can choose the B&B you wish to stay in and add it to your cart. Repeat this for as many B&Bs as you need for your holiday. When you have all your B&Bs selected, click My Cart and proceed through the checkout process. Your credit card details will be taken, but no payment will be taken. Your credit card details are held in the event of a no-show or late cancellation.  If you are asked for a booking or reference number, please use your RIT booking number (found on your invoice).
It is advisable to pre-book first and last night's accommodation in advance at all times. Rooms in Dublin City and County can be difficult to find unless accommodation is pre-booked. If visiting the capital city, we strongly advise pre-booking all accommodation well in advance. Never count on finding rooms at short notice in Dublin, always reserve in advance.

If you wish to have RIT Vacations pre-book your B&Bs on your behalf, a fee $5.00 per person/ per night will apply.
