secret garden tea tours
small group tours with an emphasis on afternoon tea
Experience the best of Ireland with overnight stays in luxurious castle hotels
We will meet in Dublin at our centrally located hotel and get acquainted at a welcome dinner. The next morning we'll board our private mini bus with driver/guide and set out to explore the best sights and experiences of the Emerald Isle.
Each day will include afternoon tea in a beautiful setting as we tour crystal factories (including the famous Waterford Crystal), a lace museum, the Belleek china factory, visit stunning castles and gardens, shop for traditional Irish crafts and see breathtaking wild and scenic vistas.
We will circumnavigate the whole island including Northern Ireland, before returning to Dublin for the last two days of the tour.
Each night, other than while in Dublin and Belfast will be spent in a luxurious castle or manor house. You will feel like royalty as we experience this area of outstanding beauty.
