Independent Ireland offers a joint collaboration that merges your vision with the expertise of a specialized Ireland vacation consultant. The end result is the creation of the ultimate custom-made travel experience. This trip is all about YOU. Your personal discovery of a grand destination, your connection to the sights, your reaction to the sounds…take it all in at your own pace, it’s your adventure and our expertise.
Today’s traveler is not yesterday’s tourist. You can book a trip with a click of a button, and soon after be on your way, check off all the major tourist attractions that destination has to offer, and come back with another country “explored” on your world map. But did you really see it, experience it, feel it…? Did you gain a better understanding of the local culture, did you make any meaningful interactions with its people, did you actually see their true way of life?
We, here at Independent Ireland
want to help you create experiences that let you open yourself up to a broad range of cultural interactions.
We strive to design itineraries that entice all your senses, after all...
the most precious memories in life are captured and later triggered by something we see, hear, taste, touch, or smell.
