December 1, 2021 The Irish government has announced a return to imposition of a few travel requirements for all of our incoming international guests, including reimposing pre-arrival PCR or professionally admiistered Antigen Covid-19 testing (timing depending on type of test chosen by you). Please make careful note of the official requirements as your holiday approaches so as to ensure a seamless arrival and tour experience. Killarney Guided Tours' resumption of touring has not been impacted by the latest requirements. Our safety-conscious, fully vaccinated and appropriately masked guides are pleased to be touring and look forward to welcoming you on your own Irish holiday.
November 6, 2021 After a long hiatus, Killarney Guided Tours returned to touring with our guests from near and far this summer. Based on our most recent bookings for the new year, we are fully expecting an extremely busy 2022 and continue to encourage you to not delay in making your own reservations. Killarney Guided Tours remains dedicated to providing not only privately guided and chauffeured touring, but the safest possible experience as well. We've also decided to extend our NO RISK - NO DEPOSIT policy into the 2022 season to assist you in feeling comfortable with your travel plans in these uncertain times.
July 3, 2021 In order to provide you with the most accurate and up-to-date information during the planning phase of your anxiously awaited tours to the Emerald Isle, Killarney Guided Tours continues to closely monitor for you the progress of the anticipated reopening of international travel this summer. With our guides now fully vaccinated and the Irish National Tourism Board's "Covid-19 Safety Charter" program fully implemented by us, we are equally as excited as you to get back on the winding Irish roads. We have seen a definite uptick in late summer/early fall 2021 bookings. With the continuation of our no risk - no deposit policy for the foreseeable future, we are able to provide at least a small level of certainty in what has been a tumultuous time. Check back soon for additional re-opening details!
June 3, 2021 There's finally a light at the end of this long tunnel! Killarney Guided Tours is pleased to announce that as of July 19, 2021, we will be welcoming our fully vaccinated, international visitors back to the Emerald Isle without the need for arrival quarantine. Our privately guided tours will resume with fully vaccinated guides behind the wheel and daily sanitization procedures in place for your peace of mind. By continuing our no risk - no deposit bookings you can now plan your late summer/early fall 2021 tours with confidence! To say we are looking forward to sharing this spectacular country with you again is an understatement of massive proportions. See you soon on "Your Tour - Your Trail"™.
March 16, 2021 Your patience has continued to be tested this past year, but we are working diligently to ensure that as soon as travel and touring within Ireland is possible, Killarney Guided Tours will be ready for your arrival. Continuing our goal to keep you as safe as possible, we have taken steps to complete not only further first aide training, but have agreed to adhere to the "Covid-19 Safety Charter" program affiliated with the National Tourism Board, known as Failte Ireland. This program was designed to give comfort and reassurance that our business is ready to re-open safely. Only businesses operating in line with current Government public health advice and with safety and cleaning protocols in place are permitted to display this status. We have never cut corners before and will not be starting to do so now. Although slower than we'd hoped for, the vaccination process is underway. We hope to return to touring as soon as is possible in 2021. Killarney Guided Tours will continue our no risk, no deposit bookings so as to allow you to plan your upcoming, and well deserved, holidays with us this year!
January 13, 2021 While travel to and within Ireland remains restricted, we are no longer merely looking toward the horizon for a glimmer of hope in relation to vaccines and resumption of leisure travel. With widespread distribution underway, Killarney Guided Tours is now enthusiastically, albeit still cautiously, optimistic that touring will commence for 2021. As soon as we are both permitted and confident that tours can be delivered while maintaining our own long standing high standards, we will return to providing our privately guided, fully chauffeured tours throughout Ireland. With no risk, no deposit bookings being accepted, we encourage you to secure your touring dates as we anticipate high demand upon resuming full operations.
November 19, 2020 We continue to closely monitor the pandemic and regulations being put in place to once again allow our world-wide visitors to begin planning their 2021 tours with us. With the recent news of reliable vaccines on the horizon and continued advancements in testing, including departure and arrival testing at Irish airports, we are encouraged that we will be able to provide tours beginning in the new year, while maintaining our high standards. No better time to plan your private tours for 2021 than the present.
August 11, 2020 Our aim continues to be back on the road providing private tours. However, we realize most guests are wisely staying home at this time and we will only tour when assured we can provide you the safe and luxurious experience you deserve. Accordingly, we are currently booking our award winning, private tours to commence early 2021. Book now, with no deposit required, for 2021 with our guarantee that should you be unable to travel due to continued pandemic concerns, you will receive a full refund. No vouchers, no credits for future travel - but a full refund. With our zero-risk booking policy we hope you will feel comfortable in securing your 2021 dates and looking forward to your Irish Adventure. Until then, please stay safe and healthy.
June 23, 2020 Ireland's roadmap to reopening and welcoming visitors is well underway and progressing more quickly than was anticipated. As of June 29, 2020 we are happy to report that privately guided tours with Killarney Guided Tours may officially recommence. While we know overseas travel remains limited, we are encouraged by the progress made in Ireland and Europe and we look forward to touring with you in the near future. Our no risk booking policy will continue, so you may secure your upcoming tours without concern over whether you'll be able to receive a refund should you be unable to travel.
