Warm Welcomes, Unique Itineraries, Local Lore


CIE Tours is the premier operator for Irish and Britain vacations, backed by 87 years of experience and an impeccable reputation. Their tours and people exemplify the best of Irish hospitality: warmth, approachability, natural storytelling, and immersion in local culture. Now, they’ve extended that same Irish DNA to brand-new destinations around the world, beginning with Iceland and Italy.


From all-inclusive guided vacations to customized private driver experiences and self-drive adventures, their tours are curated to appeal to all —honeymooners, bucket-listers, solo travelers, families and those seeking to connect with their heritage. They balance famous icons with local haunts and immersive cultural experiences. And throughout, their expert guides provide the backstories and deep intel that simply can’t be gleaned from a book. 


More than 50,000 travelers each year choose CIE Tours, and collectively give them a 95% customer satisfaction rating. Here are five reasons why:



  • Expertise. Since 1932, CIE Tours has been creating distinctive and memorable travel experiences in Ireland and beyond.

  • Breadth and depth. We have more than 50 guided vacations to choose from—from weekenders to epic journeys. You can also customize a private driver experience or self-drive adventure leveraging their expertise.

  • Authenticity. They’ll immerse you in local culture—you won’t just see their destination, you’ll live it.

  • Deep local knowledge. Their local guides and drivers are at the heart of any CIE Tours vacation. Sharing their personal knowledge of each destination, they make the trip singularly memorable and enlightening for guests

  • All-inclusive. Every aspect of a CIE Tours itinerary is included – no hidden costs and no upselling on tour
