Brendan Vacations serve as your local Ireland and Scotland experts. Their name comes from St. Brendan, the patron saint of navigation. They share his great passion for exploration and travel that has fueled the incredible vacation experiences they’ve created for the past 46 years.
Led by Catherine Reilly, Managing Director of 30 years, the Brendan team understand your every travel need. From all the planning to introducing travelers to their tight knit group of local friends, every aspect of your vacation is handled along the way.
Brendan has designed four different ways to experience your Celtic vacation. Each option is crafted to suit your travel preferences and itinerary in mind.
- Guided Vacations have been carefully designed to give you the utmost of a destination with Brendan’s unique insider’s view. Three trip styles are available: in-depth Ireland and Scotland trips, relaxed-paced ‘At Leisure’ excursions and the smaller group ‘Hidden Journeys’ option.
- Private Chauffeur Vacations are designed around you. A personal chauffeur starts with you at the airport and is with you every step of the way in your own luxury vehicle. You get to choose your personally-tailored accommodations and sightseeing. The destination comes to life when having a chauffeur share local expertise and personal stories for an exclusive perspective.
- Locally Hosted Vacations allow you to travel on your own, but not alone. Enjoy the independence of exploring Ireland’s popular cities with the accompaniment of a Local Host and their helpful advice. Hosts are familiar with the ins and outs of your destination and are available 24/7 to provide you with the inside scoop.
- Self-Drive Vacations are an exhilarating way to enjoy a vacation your way on the open road. With a range of Hertz rental car options to choose from and a selection of pre-organized sightseeing, all that’s left to do is start the ignition and drive. You can rely on the Brendan team to use their connections and knowledge to arrange for the best destinations, negotiate the best savings, and hand-select the best accommodations. With this fuel and freedom, you can see an endless amount of things in the culture you’ve come to discover.
