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 time. Add $69/night (low/mid season) or $79 (high season) for single room supplement. Rates are not locked in until per person deposit is received. Not valid for weeks with fewer than two travelers. 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.
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!

For whom are tours recommended?

We recommend our tours for active independent travelers who want an alternative to driving themselves or a fully-planned tour with no freedom or flexibility. This tour is not recommended for those who require a full time guide, private transportation service at all times, luggage handling or have mobility issues requiring wheelchairs, have trouble walking or limiting medical conditions.

What is the weather like in Wales?

Wales has a mild, temperate climate which produces temperatures in the 60’s during the summer months and the low 40’s in the winter. Spring and autumn temperatures usually hover around 50 degrees (F). Rain is very common and tends to appear at the most random times so make sure you plan accordingly. However, we have found that it never rains in the pub… or so the saying goes.

What type of transportation will we use while traveling on a Hopper?

Hopper tours, depending on your country and itinerary, utilize a combination of transfer types including door-to-door transfers with a driver, trains and/or scheduled bus.

For scheduled Hopper tours with guaranteed door-to-door transfers between towns, vehicle types will vary depending on group size. While we don’t retain a single vehicle for the duration of your trip, we do work with several local transportation and tour suppliers to ensure comfortable, hassle-free transfers and sightseeing excursions. The type of transfer may vary and is subject to change based on the total number of travelers traveling to/from the same destination on any particular date.

Airport transfers to/from the airport are provided via scheduled service shuttle buses to the city-center. Upgrades are available for door-to-door transfers with a driver.

If customizing your own Hopper we can help you set up various types of transportation between towns including a private driver, train and/or scheduled coach bus transfer. When utilizing scheduled transportation the proximity from pick-up and drop-off points to your assigned hotel may require up to a few block walk or hiring a taxi at your own expense. Maps of locations will be provided. Upgraded pricing available for all private transfers, please contact your travel specialist.

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. Please see more detailed information here in our blog!
