We are ready for you! We have upped our game and have put together a comprehensive back to business policy and procedures to help with our customers confidence in safe enjoyable tours.

We pride ourselves on consistency with high standards at Overland Ireland. Rest assured that once you book a trip with us we guarantee its departure.

Small groups and big experiences has 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. Every day we can get off the beaten track with a smaller group and a self-drive tour can bring you anywhere.
Not all superheros 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 onboard to the moment you leave with a full heart.
Our guides will have a healthy assessment prior to each tour as standard practise.
The guides are all trained in first aid and fully trained in our safety and sanitising procedures. They appreciate that they are carrying precious cargo at all times.
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. No need to be worried about social distancing! 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.
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 and less chance for guests to come in contact with large number of tourists. All guest have their own private bathroom at each location. After reviewing their safety and sanitising procedures we are fully confident bringing our customers to stay. We are no longer offering the option of sharing a room with a stranger on tour but have reduced the single supplement for our solo travellers on all tours in 2021.
