About Us

Our Story

At Ireland Hops, we believe that Ireland has so much to offer visitors that it’s difficult to fit it all in one tour. We want you to tell us what you love to do and see when you travel, what you want your dream trip to Ireland to look like. We will put your ideas into our lepreauchan’s hat and come up with your perfect itinerary.

 Ireland has so much to choose from – heritage sites, culture, history, castles, scenic driving routes. Not to mention stunning beaches with dramatic sea cliff views. 

You want adventure – we have plenty. Ireland is quickly becoming known as an top class outdoorsy destination, we love to hike, bike, kayak, stand-up paddle, scuba dive and surf.

Ireland has some amazing gardens to visit. Some of the most well known are Powerscourt Gardens, voted number 3 in the World by National Geographic. Blarney Castle and Gardens and Kylemore Abbey and Victorian Walled Gardens are very popular stops on our routes. If visiting beautifully designed gardens and estate houses excites you, we can cater for that.
