Itinerary highlights:
  • Our group tour begins in Edinburgh, Scotland, on June 24, 2024.
  • We'll spend 4 nights in Edinburgh, with activities such as a private whiskey tasting, a haunted tour that goes far beyond the typical cemetery visit, and an exploration of Edinburgh castle.
  • On June 28, we'll take a quick flight across the Irish Sea to Belfast, Northern Ireland.
  • We'll spend 3 nights in Belfast, with activities such as a visit to Titanic Belfast, drinks at a beautiful and historic pub, and a private tour exploring the history of the Troubles.
  • Then, on July 1, we'll take a beautiful train ride to Dublin, Ireland. 
  • Our 3-night stay in Dublin will include more whiskey (of course!), cocktails at a secret speakeasy, and the tragic and triumphant story of Irish independence! 
 
What if you want more?
We offer two-night trip extensions on either end, so you can choose to arrive early in Edinburgh or stay late in Dublin. These solo days will allow you the time to overcome jetlag, explore the city, or just relax. (You can choose to add this on to your booking later--no need to decide now if you aren't sure.)
 

Cancellation policy:

Your deposit is non-refundable. All other payments are refundable through March 8, 2024, minus a 4% fee.

We ask all of our group tour travelers to purchase travel insurance.
If you have to cancel after March 8, 2024, your travel insurance policy may provide reimbursement, depending on the reason for cancellation.
