About this trip

Both Ireland and Wales is full of beautiful coastlines and rich history. Ireland and Beyond tours (which is a subsidiary with Secret Ireland Tours) has been busy crafting this  itinerary to Ireland and Wales for your enjoyment.

Our passion for connecting our travelers with other cultures is evident in the itineraries we plan for couples, solo-travelers, families and groups. With about 600 castles in Wales, not to mention all the Castles in Ireland, no wonder it is regarded as the Castle Capital of Europe, you’ll have plenty to explore while you are with us there.

Enjoy the city of Dublin with all it has to offer and the Irish countryside too! Ancient sites, beautiful landscape, history and so much more before going over to Wales to explore all the beautiful countryside for stunning beaches and castles as we make our way to Cardiff which will be our last stop before flying home.

The perfect spot for any outdoor enthusiast, photographer, artist or historian, you’re bound to be inspired by both Ireland and Wales.

We ask you to secure your booking with a NON-refundable deposit of $300 when we reach the required number of 24 participants. If we do not reach this number we return all refunds.

Thank you, Mai and Secret Ireland Tours! We had the trip of a lifetime with you touring all of Ireland’s most magical places on our “Lynch Cousins Reunion Tour of 2022.” You waited patiently for two years through the Covid crisis when our planning with you started and we finally arrived on Ireland’s shores. You promised us magic and it was indeed! I had so many favorites it is hard to list but the music in the evenings with you and at local pubs was just the best. The people of Ireland are the friendliest in the world. I would highly recommend this visit with you to everyone. Already I am looking forward to another special trip with you as our guide and Eddie, our driver.

Mai is the consummate professional guide about everything Ireland! She is proud of her homeland and lovingly introduces her guests to 'her' Ireland! She listens to her tour group to provide them with out of the way and sometimes "unplanned" visits to special places. Her flexibility and patience makes for a relaxing, fun trip. She has makes everyone feel welcome and you always leave her tours with new friends! My favorite place on this tour was the small boat trip in the North Atlantic to view the cliffs. It was the best thing I've ever experienced . . . the water, the view, the salt air, and the boat Captain (Paddy)! Also the experience of having Patti Negri with us was more than I expected. She freely shared her insights and feelings about the places we visited. Patti and Mai together are Magical!!! Can't wait to go on tour with them both again!

We enjoyed that our trip was customized for our group’s shared interest (Irish dance). We also really liked the non-touristy feel of the trip. Thanks for a great visit, Mai!
