Pawtucket, RI (November 8, 2023) – Collette is inviting travelers to take a step off of the beaten path and explore Ireland in a different way on its Countryside of the Emerald Isle small group Explorations tour. North America’s longest-running tour operator offers an experience like no other across the Emerald Isle. With an average of 19 travelers, Explorations tours allow travelers to dive deeper into venues, accommodations, and destinations that larger groups can’t always reach.

Over the course of nine days, travelers will experience the many different sides of Ireland. Highlights include a visit to Bantry Bay to explore an hidden garden island, an after-hours private tour and reception at Christ Church Cathedral, an overnight stay on the enchanting Aran islands, and the chance to take in some of the nation’s most breathtaking coastal views. Travelers can secure their spot on the Countryside of the Emerald Isle tour on departure dates as early as March 24, 2024 with prices starting at $2,699 USD pp.

“Our many exploration tours in the guide will allow travelers to truly immerse themselves into the local cultures – Irish culture has so much to offer that it’s best experienced with a smaller group,” said Jaclyn Leibl-Cote, chief executive officer at Collette. “Our product designers work hard to make these tours special, adding extraordinary experiences that can’t be found with a larger group. Plus, this year’s Black Friday deals will offer you the chance to really take advantage of some huge savings when booking an exploration experience.”
