Innovative Travel has released its first ever coach tour series for Ireland. Managing Director Robyn Galloway, says our mixed heritage creates a great synergy between Ireland and New Zealand.

As a destination it fits well with Innovative Travel’s portfolio. Its most ancient site is the 5,200-year-old passage tomb, located in the ancient east. With legendary castles, and other rich history, there is plenty of appeal for clients who previously explored ancient sites through Innovative Travel’s programmes, in the Middle East and Mediterranean.

Innovative Travel is offering a choice of Three Moderate First-class coach tours, fully operated by our local Irish company, with departures between April and October each year.  

The 8-day Unforgettable Ireland tour departs Dublin on selected Tuesday’s. Highlights include Blarney Castle, Ring of Kerry, Burren and Cliffs of Moher, Galway city and cruise and Connemara before returning to Dublin. Tour hotels in Dublin are centrally located, making it easy for clients to get out and explore the city around them. In most locations centrally located hotels hotels are a key tour feature. Summer departures for the 8-day coach tour, are from NZ $2,340 pp/twin and NZ 3,050 in a single. Tours have a maximum of 29 guests with a driver/guide, in a spacious modern coach.

For clients who have a shorter time frame, the 5-day Flavour of Ireland, departs Dublin on selected Tuesdays. Some clients are seeking longer tours in fewer destinations, than prior to Covid-19, hence the 12-day Explore Ireland is a more immersive tour experience, from NZ $3,541.00 pp/twin.   The Medieval banquet at Bunratty Castle built in the 15th Century, is an important included highlight on all tours.

The rugged natural beauty of Ireland, local artistry, music, culture, and local cuisine will make an Irish visit memorable.   In addition to coach tours, bespoke private arrangements will soon be available. Galloway says she is travelling to Ireland later this month to further explore exceptional bespoke experiences appealing to the more discerning traveller. Our company policy has always been to make in-depth market research to share important local knowledge and personal recommendations.

Galloway says, we are excited to launch Ireland.   The mix of history alongside the unique Irish culture reflected in its literature, music, dance, cuisine, and landmark Guinness, all make it a landmark destination. Our local Irish office will provide “Peace of mind” travel arrangements and support 24/7, which more and more travellers are seeking in our changing world.

As one of the highest vaccinated countries in the World, it will also have appeal for the more cautious traveller.
