Visiting Ireland 2013: 5 Must Visit Places.

Hi there, and thanks for stopping to read on our site.  Whether you’re looking for chauffeur tours of Ireland, honeymoon vacations, golf trips or site seeing vacations Ireland, with Executive Hire, it will always be private, and luxury focussed, as it’s our belief that this will turn a vacation into a once in  lifetime opportunity that will live long in the memory.  Here are 5 descriptions of some of the best towns Ireland has t o offer.  There is no particular order here but if you have any comments, as ever we’d be delighted to hear from you.

A is for Adare.

Home to the world famous Adare Manor, boutique shopping, and top drawer restaurants and eateries, this gem is known as Ireland prettiest village.  Our clients stay at Adare Manor, usually in the Adare Manor Vilas which are million dollar homes where everything the discerning tourist requires is within walking distance, including ATMs, historical Abbeys and churches, thatch roof housing, pubs and bars of distinction and of course Adare Manors own golf resort. We highly recommend Adare as a base for Ireland Golf Vacations focussing on the South West Links trail, as your near all the west coast gems such as Ballybunion, Doonbeg, Tralee, Old Head and may more. Also a favourite for those on Honeymoon vacations or tours of Ireland.


If its scenery you want then Killarney simply must be part of your 2013 Ireland Vacation plans.  With the Torc Waterfalls, Ladies View, Muckross House, horse riding in Jaunting Cars, the Gap of Dunloe and of course the Lakes of Killarney, you can see why you’ll need a few days here at one of the many luxurious hotels on offer.  We often take our clients to the Killarney Plaza Hotel where Irish service and luxury go hand in hand.  Whether it’s a family vacation, a luxury tour, honeymoon, or small group tour, Killarney should be on your itinerary.


A town of historical and symbolic importance to Ireland and her people.  Many people departed from Cobh bound for new and more bountiful lives in America.  The town is noted as the last port of call for the Titanic, as well as unexpectedly finding itself as a refuge for survivors of the Lusitania ship sunk off the coast of Ireland in 1915 during World War 1. The Cobh Heritage Centre captures the story of these vessels and those of many other ships from around the world which have dropped anchor in one of the world’s largest natural harbours. Cobh is nestled between Fota Wildlife Park and the town of Midleton, home of Jameson’s Irish whiskey where you can visit the distillery with our recommendation. We conduct day trips in our luxury Mercedes fleet to Cobh and Midleton from your accommodation base in Adare, Dromoland or Killarney.  These East Cork attractions are a must-do on any luxury, private chauffeur tour of Ireland.


Ireland’s third city and sporting and cultural capital.  Limerick was first granted City Status as far back as 1191 by King John, Lord of Ireland, and its historical trials and tribulations in the ensuing centuries are told in the walls and garrison Castle which are an integral tangible and living part of this medieval City.  Limerick is served by an international airport in Shannon, just 15 minutes on the freeway. There are riverside walks where you can take in fresh air, sample some seafood from nearby coastal waters. There are some interesting museums here which are ideal family activities.  The Hunt Museum is free to visit on Sundays and its pantry style kitchen and cafe offer stunning views of the River Shannon as it meanders its way through an unusual urban mix of Georgian and modern architecture.  The skyline for which includes the rugby fortress of Thomond Park, a state of the art sporting structure home to twice European Champions Munster, and a wonderful rugby museum. Ideally sandwiched between Cork and Galway, Limericks luxurious hotels and their friendly staff offer the ideal base to tour the West, South and South West regions of Ireland.  Be sure to grab a pint of the black stuff at Nancy’s, Bourke or Dolans bar where live music is available nearly every night of the week. Limerick was Europe’s Sporting Capital in 2011, and will be European Culture Capital in 2014. Of course it’s also home to Executive Hire so we always recommend to our clients on any Luxury or site seeing tour, that they sample Limerick, Ireland’s Lady City and her many delights.


Very often this Kerry nugget is referred to in our native tongue, An Daingean. Overlooking the Dingle Peninsula, this sleepy town is everything you imagine rural Ireland to be.  See the fishermen haul up their catch on to the quay, where some of it makes its way to the numerous quaint restaurants and pubs before fetching top prices at the market. If you like walking or cycling then you can wander out of town up to Ventry beach and jump into the Atlantic. If you like photography then we bet you will be under lensed here!  With green quilted mountains, mist coated inlets, and seascape rock formations on offer, you’ll be challenged to capture it all in one definitive snap.  There are boat trips out to nearby islands where you can hike around and get a real sense of how life was for the islanders way back when… We recommend Dingle as part of any honeymoon vacation Ireland, and it certainly qualifies as a major family tour destination.
