Secret Ireland Tours are committed to doing everything possible to keep our clients safe while on tour with us in Ireland. As many know we rescheduled all of our 2020 tours to 2021 and we are keeping in close contact with the health Department in Ireland. All of the venue's and hotels we use have completed a Safety Charter course which allowed them to open to the public. We will not visit any site or stay in any hotel that has not completed this course. It was created by the tourist board in Ireland. We will do everything in our power to keep everybody safe.
We believe that this tour that was rescheduled will go ahead but we will keep a close eye on the conditions and if we need to reschedule again, we will do so in consultation with you our clients.
We ask you please do NOT book flights until we give you the go-ahead to do so. It is always advised to book three or four months out for the best prices. We ask you to book your flights to come in before 9am on the morning of the first day of the tour. You will be taking an overnight flight. Please book your return flight to leave Dublin sometime after 12 noon the last day of the trip. Dublin airport is a very busy place and because you are all (or most of you) going back to America you will have to go through American customs also so for that reason it is required that you arrive at least three hours before your departure time.
If anyone wants to book their flights to arrive the day before please contact us at 859 568 4043 because we can get good accommodation at a discounted price near the airport. This is limited though so let me know as soon as possible.
The meeting place is Terminal two at Dublin airport arrivals hall 9am May 12th 2021. That is where we start our tour.
We understand that sometimes there are flight delays, we will wait at the airport as long as we can but if you are delayed a long time then we suggest you take a taxi to the hotel which is only 5 mins away from the airport. You can call me then and we can decide on a meeting place if you wish to catch up with us.
I will give addresses of hotels to everyone in an email a few weeks before the tour starts so you will have all the information you need.
