It may come as a surprise that the beloved Irish tune 'When Irish Eyes Are Smiling' was written by a trio of American songwriters. That's the moving influence of this enchanting and captivating land. So when are Irish eyes smiling? At every moment on this undiscovered tour of Ireland - as you stroll down the lively streets of Dublin, sip Guinness in a boisterous pub on the Dingle Peninsula, take a horse-drawn jaunting-car ride through the Killarney countryside, and even bake scones on a quaint Irish sheep farm in the medieval town of Galway. By way of the most dramatic coastal and pastoral scenery, this tour of Ireland leads you to the lesser-known gems of the Emerald Isle as well as the cliffs, castles, and famous crystal you've long heard of. As you hum along the winding Ring of Kerry and the rocky Aran Islands, this tour of Ireland 'will steal your heart away.'

Booking your Vacation with Air
Our volume buying power saves you money. We may be able to provide you with flight arrangements from your gateway city. Globus offers 2 air options: Flex Air and Instant Purchase Air. Early Airfare Price Guarantee locks in a price that is guaranteed not to increase. Air pricing and schedules are available approximately 330 days prior to last travel date in the itinerary. At that time the best air price will be utilized and a new invoice with the air cost and confirmed schedule will be sent. The identity of the carrier, which may include the carrier's codeshare partner, will be assigned and disclosed at this time. If the guaranteed price is the lowest, the schedule with the lowest fare per contracted classes of service will be booked. Any voluntary change to the confirmed flights negates the guaranteed price and is subject to air pricing at the time of the change.

Additional per person, non-refundable, non-transferable deposits and payments are required for your international flights and/or for intra-trip air.
