Southern Ireland

28th May – 16th June 2025(19 nights)pdfdownload


Relaxed touring, History, the Atlantic Coast & Dublin

The Emerald Isle. Before you’ve travelled far in this country you’ll be enchanted and captivated by the land, its people and its wonderful laid-back atmosphere. Enjoy late Spring as we tour around the south and west of the country, all in a relaxed manner.

Along the south and west coasts is where Blarney, The Ring of Kerry, The Dingle Peninsular and The Cliffs of Moher are all found. We include these as we travel leisurely along much of the Wild Atlantic Way route as far as Westport.

It’s then time to be in Dublin, to take in the history and culture of Ireland’s capital city. You’ll be fascinated by the colourfulness of the city, which is home to Molly Malone, Guinness and Trinity College containing the Book of Kells.

This tour offers wonderful travel in your own motorhome, in lovely locations and at a relaxed pace throughout. The tour is also reasonably pet friendly, should you wish to include your pet.

‘An excellent tour which gave us a well balanced flavour of the Irish Republic. Our Tour Directors worked hard to ensure all the planned excursions ran smoothly and went out of their way to organise extra trips and events.’ Ann and Roger Taylor – Southern Ireland – May/June 2023

‘This was a wonderful tour, blessed with warm sunny weather. The Tour Leaders Karen and John, worked very hard and made things run very smoothly. They also organised some additional optional trips for us. It was nice to meet up with old friends from previous GB Motorhome Tours. Looking forward to the next one.’ Peter Waudby – Southern Ireland – May/June 2023

‘We have been to Ireland many times but this tour still took us to new places and we learned new things. John and Karen looked after us very well and we thoroughly enjoyed every day of the tour. They even booked excellent weather for us!’ Mike and Penny Summers – Southern Ireland – May/June 2023
