What's So Great About a Tour?
Prior to embarking on Bridie's first women's tour of Ireland, I had never thought much about taking a "coach tour" anywhere. My travel style was similar to my daily life - flying by the seat of my pants! I had always flown in, rented a car, stayed in a B & B, and spent all my time at my cousins' kitchen table! However, if you are traveling to see the sites, Bridie's coach tour is an amazing, relaxing vacation. You don't have to think about anything - especially driving on challenging Irish roads trying to find the signs. Our itinerary is planned, meals are cooked, and you have a chauffeur!
Each morning breakfast is ready - a lovely traditional Irish breakfast of eggs, rashers, sausage, and blood pudding. Or, if you prefer, porridge, fresh fruit, juices, yogurt, granola, cold breakfast cereals, and lots and lots of toast! Step outside and the coach awaits you with an inviting open door, and more importantly, our driver is there as well!
A native Irish driver may be the most amazing aspect of the tour, not only does he transport you, he simultaneously educates and entertains you! Our drivers have encyclopedic knowledge of Ireland, which they shared generously and each has an incredible collection of ballads to sing, usually saved for the leisurely drive "home".
Another great thing about Bridie's custom tour is that once you collect your baggage at the airport, you never touch your suitcase again--it just magically appears and disappears outside your hotel room door, when you arrive and depart. Your days are filled with breathtaking scenery, great destinations and your choice of how you spend your time at each attraction. At the end of the day, you and your fellow travelers board our awaiting carriage and return to the hotel to get ready for the evening's activities. On nights when there is no after dinner activity planned, you're free to spend a quiet evening, or perhaps undertake a pub crawl with your fellow travelers.
So if you are searching for a vacation where you can just relax, one of Bridie's Irish luxury coach tours is for you. So reserve your seat today, and prepare to be dazzled by the magnificent beauty of Ireland and the charm of the Irish people.
