Brendan Vacations tailors your guided tour to your specific desires. Don’t miss a beat – or a photo – on escorted adventures into the heart of these lush countries. From breathtaking scenery, to fascinating historical sites, to vibrant and modern city experiences, don’t just glance and pass through – pause and reflect and elevate your idea of touring.
You literally choose the way you want to see the region. Whether it’s self-drive, by train, by private chauffeur, or on a guided tour, you get to decide your path.
Take full control of the wheel on self-drive explorations that will take you along the majestic coastal roads of Ireland. Drive beside the Twelve Bens mountain range, through off-the-beaten path villages, and beside Ireland’s longest river, The River Shannon. In Scotland, set cruise control as you pass by endless glens, towering mountains, ancient castles, and through the Scottish Highlands and along legendary lochs like Loch Ness. Get out and go for a hike, and try spotting Nessie. On self-drive adventures, feel free to take detours as you please.
Locally hosted rail tours bring travelers through the heart of their chosen destination, while offering up remarkable views. Sit back, relax, and take in sprawling fields of green dotted with white sheep. Pass through bustling cities. Meet great people along the route. Rail tours come equipped with a Local Host who is available in each city 24/7 to help and provide insider tips.
Brendan Vacations’ guided tours are also great ways to meet likeminded people sharing the same experience. Guided experiences include a Travel Director to make sure you’re getting the most out of the journey, providing a local’s perspective but also a historian’s eye to everything you see. Tours include the Best of Scotland and the Enchanting Emerald Isle.
For heightened luxury, private chauffeur tours are also a specialty of Brendan Vacations. And the luxury is noticeable at every turn – castle stays, first-class service, dinner reservations to some of the best restaurants in the region, plus other luxurious perks will be yours as you explore the Celtic Isles. Your chauffeur will double as an endlessly informative guide as well, with colorful stories to accompany the destinations you visit.
This is also the birthplace of golf. Brendan Vacations has handcrafted escorted golf tours to some of the best – and most historical – courses the world over. A golfer’s dream, these vacation packages will take you to golfer’s paradise via private chauffeur. Play the Castle Course at St. Andrews Links, set on a clifftop with unbelievable views over St. Andrews, and at Muirfield, a course on rotation for the Open Championship that boasts a storied history.
