Small groups and big experiences have always been our mantra. Nothing has changed. Our small group size should give you the confidence to book with us.

We have an average of 12 guests on each tour. This gives our new friends a more personal experience, more space and a lot more options for cultural experiences, activities, eating and entertainment.

Not all superheroes wear capes!! This is true for all of our amazing tour guides.

They will look after you 24/7, show you everything Ireland has to offer, share amazing stories with you and most importantly keep you safe from the minute you step on board to the moment you leave with a full heart.

Our guides are all fully trained in first aid and our own safety procedures. They appreciate that they are carrying precious cargo at all times.

The Great Outdoors

The Great Outdoors

The beauty of a trip with Overland Ireland is that almost everything of interest is located in the great outdoors. Ireland is famed for its unspoiled rural landscape.

We have all the space in the world for you to enjoy on your trip. Enjoy Ireland’s 40 shades of green and the freshest Irish air! One of our favourite things to do is explore the coastline by foot.

You can take an easy stroll or a more challenging hike depending on your pace of tour. Guests love being invigorated by the wildness and beauty of their surroundings.

Local Knowledge

Local Knowledge

Our expert local guides know Ireland better than everyone else. They are familiar with every nook and cranny around the country.

They are experts in bringing you off the beaten track and have all the tricks up their sleeves to avoid large crowds and queues.

Our guides are passionate about Irish history, tradition and culture. They have the best stories and will answer all the strange and wonderful questions you can think of.

You cannot beat local knowledge when choosing a tour of Ireland.



We are delighted that our small groups can stay in locally run guest houses and hotels. These accommodations are smaller, so there is less chance for guests to come in contact with a large number of tourists.

All guests have their own private bathroom at each location. After reviewing the safety and cleaning procedures at all accommodations, we are fully confident in bringing our customers to stay.

We no longer offer the option of sharing a room while on tour. There is a mandatory single supplement fee for all solo travellers.
