The name Elegant Ireland is well known among international tourism cognoscenti as a leading destination specialist for Ireland and Northern Ireland. At the forefront of Irish heritage tourism since 1984, we are ranked as one of the world’s top travel specialists by the prestigious Condé Nast Traveler, a ranking we have enjoyed since 2012.
Founder and CEO, Geraldine Murtagh, was one of the first to offer privileged access to houses and gardens seldom included on Irish tours in the 1980’s. A keystone of our success is our unrivalled access to private properties, gardens and art collections and our impresive panel of distinguished and entertaining speakers, in fields including the arts, archaeology, architecture, literature, genealogy, folklore, history, horticulture and modern Ireland.
"We shall be happy to assist you with any themed tour of any duration, using our special priviliged access to take you behind the scenes and into the authentic Ireland. Luxury private tours and luxury accommodation are our specialties.
It's all about creating expriences that enrich and memories that last - for ever!"
