Car Free Days & Activities

Reducing Our Carbon Footprint

At Brack Tours, we always have concerns regarding environment and how our tours affect destinations we visit. As such, we are always seeking new, innovative ways of reducing our carbon footprint. Similarly, when planning a self-drive tour of Ireland we always consider this factor. We therefore take into consideration which days you will not need your vehicle.

For example, we recommend that you do not have a car while in Dublin City. This will, consequently, reduce your carbon footprint. Moreover, we recommend that you take walking tours, open bus tours and that you try to use public transport while in the City. There may also be cases, in which you may not require the car. This could be, for example, a day trip along the Ring of Kerry, on board a scheduled bus tour. As oppose to your self-drive vehicle.
