The economic landscape changes frequently. The cost of living crisis continues to bite and the effects are being felt all around the world.
However, with the current strength of the US dollar there are plenty of reasons why our American cousins should consider using their well-earned cash for an Irish excursion. The recent increase in comparative strength of the dollar against other currencies means that the USD is working ‘harder’ than previous years – in essence, for items prices in euros, your purchasing power has increased in recent months, i.e. more ‘bang for your buck’.
To those who are returning to our shores in 2023, there are plenty of options across all 32 counties to pique your interest. The tourist season commences in April and runs through to September. That’s not to say that there aren’t activities you can do outside this time of year, seasonality influencing the experience greatly. After all, as far as the temperamental weather is concerned, it’s not as if we have any control over the elements in this country, so you are best to take your chances whenever they come!
For those who may be travelling to Ireland for the first time, we would like to extend a céad míle fáilte – ‘one hundred thousand welcomes’ – in our native tongue.
Travellers to Ireland are often surprised at how much there is packed into our little island – every county – similar to the US states – having their own customs and quirks. One of the best ways to experience the island is by car or coach.
The Joys of Coach Travel
Come rain, hail or shine our tour-guide operated coaches are reliable and efficient giving you plenty of time to sit back, relax and enjoy the views.
Where you want to discover is entirely up to you. At Galway Tour Company, we have a range of tours which cover the length and breadth of the island. We offer multi-day tour packages that are perfect for groups who want to immerse themselves in the culture and spend time at each attraction. Your experience is enhanced by a local tour guide/driver offering plenty of anecdotes, stories and tales all from Ireland’s rich and complex history.
We recommend that if you are planning to travel in the coming months, and your party is larger than 8 people, that bookings are made in advance to avoid disappointment.
Shorter trips are also available through our half and full-day tours. These tours explore the western edge of Ireland – the Wild Atlantic Way – and depart from Galway.
Customising an itinerary around your party’s travel needs is also something we can accommodate. Our knowledgeable team can work with you to create a journey plan that covers everything you want to experience and see while visiting Ireland. You can contact a member of our team to start that conversation today.
Now is the perfect time to consider your holiday destinations in 2023 and budget accordingly. You take care of the ‘when’, but the team at Galway Tour Company can take care of the ‘where’ and ‘how’, helping you get the most out of your experience in Ireland.
