In the extremely unlikely event of political unrest, natural disasters, acts of terrorism, a hotel being unable to host us due to overbookings or closure, severe weather warnings, impassable roads; we reserve the right to amend the itinerary without notice. We are patriots and love Ireland, we will ensure anything that is hypothetically missed out on will be replaced by another great sight or activity. This rarely happens.


We pride ourselves on the quality of our Tour-Guides, all our guides live in Ireland and true lovers of this beautiful Island.  Our Chief Guide Stephen McPhilemy endeavours to lead all our tours, but this is not guaranteed in the unlikely event he may be sick or have a family emergency. If stephen cannot guide all or part of your tour, then an equally competent and passionate member of our ‘Essential Ireland’ guide team will lead the tour.
