Global Morning News – Ireland Self Drive Tour

Posted on: December 9, 2023

I want to talk about Ireland because it is a particular passion of mine. Why? Well I am half Irish and have my cousins living there and I love to go and visit. So when I found this tour I just immediately loved it as it has been to many of the places that I have travelled to.

So looking for an Irish Tour I found CIE Tours. Started in Ireland in 1932 so I guess you could say they know what they are doing. A great company to use for Ireland.

Now this is a self-drive tour. All your hotels are taken care of and many meals included – daily breakfast and most dinners included. Your itinerary is mapped out ahead of you but doing a self drive means that if you want a spend a little longer in that cute little village – you can! If you want to deviate and take the road less travelled – that’s your choice.

The route starts and finishes in Dublin and includes many famous spots including the Ring of Kerry, the Blarney Stone, the Cliffs of Mohr and the windswept hills of Donegal.

What I love especially is that it includes some of my favourite places. The Dingle peninsula is not as famous as the Ring of Kerry but so beautiful and I was delighted to see that the tour starts and finishes in Dublin at Clontarf Castle. One of my favourite hotels, just around the corner from where my cousin lives. I stay there regularly.

I have almost talked myself into doing this trip to revisit all these fabulous places, and of course see the family.
