Car Free Day’s & Activities

Carbon FootprintAs a tour operator in Ireland we always have concerns about the environment and how our tours affect each destination that we visit, we are always looking for new and innovative ways of reducing our carbon footprint. When planning a self-drive tour of Ireland we always consider this factor and we take into consideration which days you will not need to have your car. For example we recommend that you do not have a car while in Dublin City to reduce your carbon footprint and we recommend that you take city walking tours, open bus tours of Dublin and that you try to use the public transport while in the City. We also recommend that you do not use your car rental when you don’t need it for example if your tour included Killarney, we would recommend that you take one of the many scheduled bus tours of the Ring of Kerry, rather than drive yourself.
