Our travel specialists would be happy to price this tour or put a custom Ireland hopper tour together for you! Make sure to ask about our available upgrades as well.
TERMS: Pricing is per person based on land-only, double or triple occupancy and can change at any times. Add $69/night (Premiere Category) or $89/night (Superior Category) for single room supplement. Rates are not locked in until per person deposit is received. Not valid for weeks or transfers with three or fewer travelers, alternate transfers or pricing will be available. Guaranteed transfers do not include door-to-door transfers to/from the Dublin airport. Please ask your travel specialist for upgrade options. Prices do not include airfare or optional travel insurance. Superior Hotels, Luxury Hotels & child pricing (12 and under) available upon request. Balance due 90 days prior to departure.
Does my flight need to arrive or depart at any specific time? How do airport transfers work?

Your flight does not need to meet any specific time requirements though most flights from the U.S./Canada do arrive early in the morning. Airport transfers are supplied by local city-center shuttles (bus/train), hotel shuttle or pre-paid taxi. Shuttles are provided by companies such as Aircoach, CityLink, Heathrow Express or Bus Eireann depending on your airport and location.

Do I need a passport?

Yes! All US citizens must have a passport that remains valid 6 months beyond the dates of your trip. All non-US citizens must check with their local consulate for documentation requirements. If you do not have a passport, one may be obtained through your local post office, which also offers expedited processing. ALL NAMES PROVIDED TO TENON TOURS MUST BE AS THEY APPEAR ON YOUR PASSPORT (first and last names only). You may want to make a copy of your passport and leave it at home with a friend of family.

When should I arrive at the airport?

Play it safe and plan to arrive 2.5 to 3 hours prior to your scheduled departure time to allow for any unexpected delays in traffic, check-in, security, or long lines at the newsstand!

What time of day will we depart each city?

Departure times to each city can differ, but are usually between 9:00 am and 3:00 pm. All departure times will be listed on the travel documents issued prior to departure from the U.S. so that you can plan out activities accordingly.

Are the hotels air-conditioned?

Due to the cooler average climate in Ireland and Britain, most accommodations (hotels and/or B&B’s) do not have or need air-conditioning.  Some accommodations will state that they have “temperature control” in the rooms, however the control you have over how hot or cold to make it is not to the extremes that our clients may be used to in North America.  Some accommodations may have fans available, check with reception or your B&B host.
