You will be given the insiders tour with expert advice on the best shopping, places of interest, pubs and restaurants as well as those off-the-beaten-path cultural gems that define a trip long after you’ve come home. Did we mention you might hear a tall tale or two along the way? All chauffeured tours include private transfers on arrival and departure, deluxe accommodations, full breakfast each day, all local taxes and service charges, handling of bags and sightseeing, and a variety of cultural activities. Our concierge is at your service to do on the spot changes, make theatre and dinner reservations, book additional golf rounds, change or add hotels and do myriad other services while you are traveling. “Can you afford to go any other way!”
Custom Designed Private Group Tours – Your group can do it all!

Helicopter Service – Your time is valuable!
Many of our clients enjoy being whisked away on arrival at the airport to enjoy greater flexibility in less time. Many areas of Ireland and Scotland provide superb sightseeing but are difficult to reach on the ground. If you prefer to stay in fewer hotels with less packing and unpacking we can arrange helicopter service from any location. For those who want the maximum experience with minimum time available, traveling by helicopter is the answer. Reach far-flung golf courses, enjoy spectacular sightseeing or simply arrive in style!
The staff at Destinations takes great pride in hand-picking and approving the hotels that we use for your enjoyment and comfort on each and every tour. Why not enjoy a luxury stay in a fabulous manor, stylish country house or luxury castle. Our accommodations are selected for their superior service, warm and friendly staff, superb locations and fine cuisine. As our guest you can be confident that we will custom-design your itinerary with delightful and very special accommodations.
Practically all of our tours, self-drive and chauffeur-driven, begin with a private transfer on arrival from the airport to your hotel. Whether you choose a self-drive tour or a chauffeur driven tour, you are always assured that your transportation vehicle will be first class. We insist on current year models for all our rental cars. Your chauffeured transportation, depending on the number traveling, will range from Mercedes saloon to a luxury mini-van. All private family and group tours enjoy the comfort of VIP luxury coaches that include all modern conveniences. We custom-design to suit your needs.
