What to Bring on an All Inclusive Tour of Ireland

There are many reasons to visit Ireland. First off, it’s a beautiful country with colorful culture and lore. Then there’s the food, music, and majesty of the ancient castles.

There is truly no place on Earth like it.

Tourism to the country has been on a steady incline, a little more than 10% bump between the years 2015 and 2016.

So if you’ve been on the fence, now’s the perfect time to travel to this undeniably gorgeous destination.

But if you’ve never been—perhaps you’ve never traveled overseas—and are concerned about navigating the area, never fear. All inclusive Ireland tours are available to help tourists get the most out of Ireland.

So now that you’ve settled on either a Celtic tour or castle tour, you’re probably wondering what to bring on your castle vacation. If so, continue reading.

A light snack

Depending on how long your tour is, there may come a time when your stomach starts to rumble. Some all inclusive Ireland tours can last hours. Bring something small and light to snack on. Of course, avoid unpacking it from your bag during an inappropriate time. Also, try to avoid snacks that produce too many crumbs, as this is inconsiderate to your guide and the people around you.

Comfortable shoes

Odds are you’re going to be doing a lot of walking. Leave the nice new pair of shoes at home, and wear some waterproof and worn down shoes for comfort and warmth in case you get caught in the rain during your tour. Closed-toe shoes only. You’ll be happy you left the flip flops and high heels back at your hotel or home once you’re an hour into the tour.

A rain jacket and an umbrella

Speaking of the rain, you want to make sure you also bring a jacket that’s going to protect you from any potential downpours while you’re exploring this lush—yet rainy—country. But a hooded jacket is not enough, so bring an umbrella as well. Be aware that the possibility of rain is an everyday occurrence.

A nice camera

Ireland is one of the most photogenic places in the world. Don’t miss out on all the stunning photo opportunities and leave your camera behind.

Wallet and cellphone

These are self-explanatory, but some would assume that being on a tour cuts your chance of getting lost. You are among other people, after all, and following the advice of your useful guide. But accidents happen, and getting lost or separated is always a real possibility. So it’s best to keep these essentials on you at all times. Either in your pockets or a small backpack.

A universal adapter

Alright, so you brought your phone with you. But what if it dies? Bring your charger and an adapter, so you can plug in whenever it’s convenient and avoid that fear of your phone dying while you’re in a foreign country altogether.

All inclusive Ireland tours: the only way to sightsee
