Valentia Island | Luxury Family Vacations Ireland

It is no secret that the scenery in Ireland is some of the best in the world. The ancient history of the island means that there are unique landscapes seen no where else in the world, much of which is unspoiled.  There is a long list of places we bring our guests to on a tour of Ireland but here are just some of our top picks…

Cliffs of Moher | Private Chauffeur Ireland

Cliffs of Moher

The Cliffs of Moher are one of Ireland’s top Visitor attractions. The Cliffs are 214m high at the highest point and range for 8 kilometres over the Atlantic Ocean on the western seaboard of County Clare. O’Brien’s Tower stands proudly on a headland of the majestic Cliffs. From the Cliffs one can see the Aran Islands, Galway Bay, as well as The Twelve Pins, the Maum Turk Mountains in Connemara and Loop Head to the South. The Cliffs of Moher take their name from a ruined promontory fort “Mothar” which was demolished during the Napoleonic wars to make room for a signal tower. Your Personal Chauffeur Ireland will bring right to the cliff pathway and be waiting for you to return from a refreshing walk, breathing in Irish air.

The Giants Causeway

The Giant’s Causeway lies at the foot of the basalt cliffs along the sea coast on the edge of the Antrim plateau in Northern Ireland. It is made up of some 40,000 interlocking basalt columns, the result of an ancient volcanic fissure eruption. The myth of the Causeway is an even better story… it involves a fight between two giants! Whichever truth you would like to believe the Giant’s Causeway is certainly an iconic scene in Ireland that you will have never ‘seen’ before.

The Ring of Kerry

The Ring of Kerry has some of Ireland’s finest beaches and scenery that has attracted small group tours as-well as family friendly vacations in Ireland. This unspoiled region of Ireland has a natural beauty beyond question and is famous for its outdoor activities including walking, running and golf. The ring itself is a road that’s steeped in Irish history that takes you from centuries old forest passing through rugged landscapes home to wild stag to crystal clear waterfalls filled with wild salmon. It’s a road that shows you the real meaning of a holiday in Kerry, Ireland.

The Aran Islands

The Aran Islands are a group of three charismatic islands of the coast off Galway Bay, Inis Mór (the largest), Inis Meain and Inis Oírr. The natives of the Islands all speak Irish as their first language but most are also fluent in English.  The islands can be accessed by ferry or by plane. There are Bronze Age and Iron Age forts on the islands.  The most prominent of these forts sits on the edge of a cliff on Inis Mór at a height of 330 feet, it towers over the Atlantic ocean. It’s a spectacular view-point.

Carrauntoohil

Carrauntoohil (meaning “Inverted sickle”) is the highest mountain in Ireland at 1,038.6 metres (3,407 ft). It is located in County Kerry and is the central peak of the MacGillycuddy’s Reeks, Ireland’s highest mountain range. It overlooks three bowl-shaped valleys each with their own lakes, can you imagine the view up there?!

The Burren National Park

The Burren National Park is a short journey from the cliffs in your private driven vehicle. The name Burren is from the Irish word ‘boireann’ meaning rocky place, and it certainly is! Mainly formed of limestone rock the Burren stretches over 15,000 Acres and is the smallest National Park in Ireland. There have been many tombs found around the Burren, made from the rocks, the famous being the Portal Dolmen, proving people have lived in the Burren for over 5,000 years. It’s a very different landscape during your trip to Ireland as there’s no lush green grass and it’s easy to forget the vast area of rock landscape is still the Emerald Isle.

Killarney National Park

There is just so much to see in the infamous Killarney National Park we recommend spending more than a day there, here’s just some of the sights:

Lady’s View – so named after Queen Victoria’s ladies-in-waiting during the Queen’s visit to Killarney in 1861. The views toward the McGillycuddy Reeks and the Purple Mountain Range are truly magnificent.
Torc Falls – we follow a scenic path to the top of the 18 meter high waterfall for panoramic views.
Muckross House and Gardens – this magnificent Victorian mansion forms the centre-piece of Killarney National Park.
Ross Castle – this 15th century stronghold was the original home of the O’Donoghue Ross Chieftans.
