Hi, My Name Is...

Stuart Marley

and my passion is Ireland! I love being there, and I miss it when I'm not. Lucky for me I get to go back quite a bit. Through my business Real Irish Travel I am fortunate to take people like you to Ireland, maybe on their first Irish adventure, or for some, their tenth or even twentieth time. I love taking our guests to places they have never seen, maybe only read about, and for those that have been it's great to take them to some new places they didn't know about. There's always something new to discover in Ireland and never enough time.

I can't even begin to count all the days I've spent in Ireland traveling about the 32 beautiful counties. I've experienced the vibrant cities, charming towns, rural gems with breathtaking views and discovered what is unique, unusual, truly interesting, and ultimately worthwhile.

Using all this first-hand knowledge I've put together tours of Ireland that really are like no others. Packed with unique locales and special touches turns what would otherwise be just a "good" trip into an extraordinary experience.

Join us for an experiential journey to the real Ireland.

What's So Different About My Irish Tour?

This isn't just another cookie cutter trip

I custom plan everything

No cookie cutter tours here, it's all bespoke. I pick out all the attractions, destinations and all the hotels. We'll visit some of the best 'tourist attractions' that I feel are worthwhile and we'll also get to see great spots that lie off the beaten path like the small villages we'll visit in Donegal (my home County) or the charming village of Howth (North Dublin) or Spike Island, in Cork Harbor (County Cork).

This also isn't a grade school field trip, there's time to yourself to explore and I know that everyone has their own set of interests as well.  So, what are you waiting for, let's make it happen, and cross it off your bucket list!

Culture is at the forefront

Beer is great, hangovers aren't

We're going to stop at some cozy pubs and have a good time. This tour isn't a bar crawl, though, it's about discovering all the Ireland has to offer. From Viking raids to High King Brian Boru and little fishing villages to sprawling cities, I'll show you what the real Ireland is like.

Goodbye hostels, hello luxury

Travel Like Kings and Queens

It's going to be tough saying goodbye to a time as good as this. Just a few of the benefits that make this a premium experience:

  • Superior accommodation in mostly 4 & 5 star hotels, and even a castle stay, like the 5 star luxurious Dromoland Castle in County Clare or Lough Eske Castle in Donegal.
  • Top notch, locally sourced food and dining
  • Small group travel, no more than 30 guests on our full size luxury motor coach
  • You get to relax, not stress about all the details

Here's A Quick Overview Of What We'll Be Doing

I call this the Southern Gems from East to West tour, and the name gives it away. We're going to start in Dublin and travel the south of Ireland from the east coast to the west, ultimately departing from Shannon. In-between are 10 days full of exploration, discovery, and good times!

Visiting Quaint Villages

It's oft in the most obscure places that the greatest treasures lie. Striking up interesting conversation with a local, finding the perfect one-of-a-kind souvenir, or diving in to great eats...I'll show you plenty of little villages, like Malahide and Adare, with a unique flavor all their own.

Experiencing Awe-Inspiring Sights

The Ring of Kerry, the Dingle Peninsula, the Rock of Cashel, and more are sure to make your jaw drop and suck the breath straight out of your lungs. Soaring mountains to sweeping vistas, waterfalls to majestic lighthouses, there's a little bit of nature for everyone.

Exploring Castles, Lots of Castles

Ireland's been around a long time and she's seen her fair share of kings and conquerors, not to mention a Viking or two. Walk the Medieval Mile in Kilkenny or experience a little magic when you kiss the Stone at Blarney Castle.

Relaxing

Perhaps the most important bit of the entire trip. I'm not going to rush you from place to place to place with hardly a moment to catch your breath. You're going to see a lot and have the time to actually appreciate it too.

 
 
 
May the Irish hills caress you.
May her lakes and rivers bless you.
May the luck of the Irish enfold you.
May the blessings of Saint Patrick behold you.
— Irish Blessing
