Owned and operated by Annemarie Carolan, Ireland Discovery Tours, based in County Cavan, is a well-established and renowned Failte Ireland national tour guide.
Known for providing tailor made packages throughout the country with a high level of customer service and attention to detail of the utmost importance, Ireland Discovery Tours is ideally located to cater for the needs of national and international tourists seeking an itinerary through Ireland’s Hidden Heartlands.
The brand aims to bring to life the region’s rich natural assets including its many lakes, walkways and blueways. Central to the new tourism brand is the Beara Breifne Way and the River Shannon - the two central spines are major assets within Ireland’s Hidden Heartlands and are to be developed to enhance the visitor experience.
For the Beara Breifne Way, which spans the entire region, a compelling walking and cycling trail experience will be developed to international standards while a River Shannon masterplan is currently being worked upon by Waterways Ireland in partnership with Failte Ireland with the aim of driving tourism opportunities both on and off the water.
When such tourist enticing developments are completed, Ireland Discovery Tours will be to the fore catering for both national and international visitors needs as they explore the latest brand in the Failte Ireland portfolio.
Complementing the existing Failte Ireland brands - Ireland’s Ancient East & Wild Atlantic Way and Dublin - Ireland Discovery Tours, has garnered a wealth of experience in providing visitors with extensive itineraries regarding these regional destinations.
With in excess of fifteen years business experience in the tourism industry, Ireland Discovery Tours provides a Failte Ireland tour guide on each tour offering accommodation in a wealth of four star hotels with whom Annmarie and her team have been dealing since the company’s inception.
Offering one to four day tours, Ireland Discovery Tours caters for the every need of the visiting tourist to include - pick up from local airport or ferry port - tours accompanied by a Failte Ireland guide with commentary - entertainment provided an all overnight tours - admission charges to heritage sites - evening meal, morning coffee and scones on all day tours - luxury coaches with friendly and helpful staff.
Annmarie will guide the tours where possible, but when demand is high, she can rely upon on her colleagues from AATGI and Erne Heritage Guides - all Failte Ireland approved guides to carry out the task to a very high standard.
That high standard was acknowledged in 2017 when the company was successfully recognised at the Cavan Business & Tourism awards regarding the continuing excellent level of customer service provided by Ireland Discovery Tours.
