While some people prefer to visit Ireland with a tour group providing customized itineraries, others prefer to do a self-drive tour of Ireland, avoiding crowds and other people’s timetables. By taking on your own road trip around Ireland, you can explore the Emerald Isle at your own pace, decide where and when you go somewhere, and stop in places for as many or as little time as you want.

However, if you are thinking of touring Ireland on your own, you might be looking for some suggested itineraries for Ireland to help you plan your trip. Whether you are looking for city itineraries or want longer on the Emerald Isle and are looking to plan a 7-day tour of Ireland, you’ll love our Ireland itineraries.

We have suggested itineraries for all travellers. Our city guides include a Dublin 3-day itinerary while longer ones include a great Northern Ireland road trip that combines the Causeway Coast and part of the Wild Atlantic Way. This 7-day Ireland road trip gives visitors the best of both worlds by combining parts of Northern Ireland with the upper half of the Wild Atlantic Way.

We have a great itinerary for exploring part of the Wild Atlantic Way in the southern half of the country, one of the best road trips in Ireland visitors can make. This is a 5-day Wild Atlantic Way, Ireland itinerary that covers the southern half of this epic driving route on the Emerald Isle.

And for history lovers out there, we’ve put together a great 7-days in Ireland itinerary that explores Ireland’s Ancient East, an area of Ireland that is steeped in history and famous landmarks such as the Rock of Cashel and Brú na Bóinne.
