Custom Ireland Itineraries

Are you planning a trip to Ireland but want to travel a little differently than everyone else?

You don't want to rush from site to site or spend more time in the car than actually experiencing Ireland. 

You'd rather go slow, soak in the culture, and savor every moment. 

You want days full of cherished memories rather than ticking items off a bucket list. 

You want to meet the locals.


Listen to their stories.


You want room in your itinerary to say yes to a cup of tea or a pint. 

You want to walk the hills, wander empty abbeys, watch artisan craftsmen at their work. 

You want to weave in these unique experiences every day of your trip so that it is the most memorable, treasured trip of your life.

If that's the kind of trip you are dreaming about, 

you're not alone 

That's how we travel too. 

And it's as amazing as it sounds.

Where to go and for how long?

It's the most foundational part of your trip, but also the most difficult to figure out on your own. 

Luckily you don't have to. My itineraries have you staying in one place for at least two to three nights, giving you time to explore the iconic sites as well as hidden gems you can't find in the guidebooks. 

Want to stay in a castle? Or are you just dying to devour a full Irish breakfast in a charming B&B? 

I'll make sure you have a selection of places to stay that meet your needs and your budget.

And you won't just get one recommendation per location but several in each area.

Ireland may not be well-known for its cuisine, but, trust me, heavenly fare can be found if you know where to look. 

Lucky for you, I've done a lot of eating research. You get my favorite spots for restaurants, pubs and the best traditional Irish music and evening entertainment around.

Unique, engaging, intimate and authentic experiences--this is what it is all about. 

You won't find "go here at 9 and there by 2" in my itineraries. I won't micromanage your time.

What you will discover are some of the best lists you're gonna find of things to see and do in each area including iconic stops, local treasures, hidden gems and my personal favorites to have genuinely special experiences in Ireland.

You're going to love your Ireland itinerary.

     I can't imagine had we struck out on our own!     

"Stephanie was so helpful and complete in working with us on our itinerary that I felt like we brought along our own personal tour guide. 

She wasn’t just interested in listing typical touristy places for us to go and see, but she began by getting to know us – what we wanted. And then she whittled down our impossible list of must-see’s and wanta-do’s to a manageable size. 

I can’t imagine had we struck out on our own! So not only will you gain lovely new Irish friends on your trip, you’ll have one stateside as well. 

Thank you, Stephanie. You’re brilliant! (to quote the Irish :-))"

My Promise to you:

I want you to love Ireland as much as I do. 

I am so confident that by working with me you will have a better trip to Ireland that I offer a 100% satisfaction guarantee. If for any reason you are not satisfied with your Ireland Itinerary, you will be refunded. No questions asked.

Just a sec... Here's what I know

  • I know you're not taking this decision lightly. 
  • I know this is the Ireland trip of your dreams and you want it to be perfect. 
  • I know this is an investment

 I also know that those who invest in their trips have better experiences

Yes, it's true. You can hire a travel company or agent who will create an itinerary for you, book your accommodations and even reserve you a dinner table.

But unfortunately, your travel agent may or may not have ever stepped foot in Ireland. 

They might not know how far is too far to drive and they won't give you lists of the iconic stuff, hidden gems and extra special experiences. 

And they almost certainly don't specialize in the type of trip you're craving. 

Plus, you are my sole priority. I never get paid or accept kickbacks or commissions from my recommendations. I love Ireland. I want you to love it too.

Ireland 2017 Trip Report

Hi! I’m Stephanie. 

I planned my very first trip to Ireland in 2006. It was our honeymoon and I had no clue what I was doing. Over the last decade, we’ve been back again and again.

I’ve learned that the best Ireland itineraries are slow and have room for spontaneity and special experiences. 

I am ready to help make this trip the best you’ve ever had.

Here's what a few more people had to say:

     I really trust Stephanie and would absolutely recommend her to anyone planning a trip to Ireland!

Patrick J. Mchugh, Canada

    Stephanie was incredibly helpful in planning our trip to Ireland. We were frustrated and confused about where to go and what to see. She helped us focus and zero in on forming a wonderful itinerary for travel, sightseeing, driving, and where to stay.
