Walking and biking Ireland?each day engages you with the countryside and nature; optional activities provide a fresh perspective on the region you’re visiting; while discoveries provide first-hand experiences of the history, heritage and indigenous crafts of Ireland, as well as cultural encounters with its people.
Every day on tour is designed to integrate aspects of these, meaning that you will have a full and rich experience of Ireland, as well as many treasured memories which will last you for years to come.
It's especially because of the small-group nature of Explore Ireland Tours that we can offer such rich and engaging experiences. We've put together some of our favorite discovery activities for you to see here, but check the full tour itineraries to see how many ways Explore will engage you with the real Ireland.
