Green with Envy: Ireland By Design Escorted Tour from Dublin

I'm half-Irish and love recommending this beautiful country to everyone. The people are friendly, the food is delicious, and there's nothing quite like a fresh Guinness. This tour lets you choose activities at each stop. You can bike on e-bikes or learn to make soda bread in an Irish kitchen. The trip is just eight days but will be unforgettable.
