All our accommodations have been carefully selected and are approved by the high standards of the Irish Tourist Board.
We have chosen locations of outstanding natural beauty, so that you can enjoy the best of Irish rural life and scenery.
You will enjoy top quality accommodation in small, family run guesthouses and hotels whilst being charmed by the hospitable and friendly hosts.
All rooms are en suite twin, double or single. Singles are available on request for a small supplement. We stay in small hotels, guest houses, farmhouses, B & B’s and occasionally castles.
Each day morning, in addition to the famous full Irish breakfast, there are alternative options available.
Everybody loves the Irish soda bread, with creamy Irish butter. But for the more health conscious, you can be assured of plenty of fruit, juice, yogurts and cereals. We take packed lunches for our lunch breaks during our walks. These are provided from our accommodation or from local delis.
Our evenings are a time for reviewing the day’s activities and shared experiences on the hills. Evening meals are taken either in the places where we are staying or in local restaurants: relax with an excellent 3-4 course dinner. You will be pleasantly surprised at the fine quality meals you will enjoy on a Joyce’s Ireland tour.
We travel from one location to the next on a comfortable mini-coach with high-backed seats (rarely filled to full capacity so there is plenty of room to spread out). The height of the vehicle allows for excellent views over hedgerows, stone walls, etc. Your luggage is stored inside, not on a roofrack, so there is no risk of it getting wet.
We spend from one to three nights in each area and walk the best parts before moving on to our next stop. When we travel between locations we make plenty of allowances for “comfort” stops and coffee / tea breaks.
