We don’t want you to have a ‘good experience’ – we will ensure you have a ‘great experience’.

Picture-postcard wild and beautiful countryside. Sleepy fishing villages with stories and magic of old. The vibrancy of a traditional Irish music session at the local pub or the historic secrets of ancient castles, unfolding before you. Ireland is always so many things in so many ways – and you can trust Scales to introduce you to our country at its absolute best.
Whatever you want to see, wherever you want to go and however you’d like to spend your time – we can curate the perfect Irish experience for you.
We will put together an itinerary that encompasses the very best of Ireland’s attractions. Experiencing the 300 million year old Cliffs of Moher will no doubt be on your list: one of Ireland’s most popular tourist attractions that offers nature, history, culture and wildlife all in one incredible, breathtaking experience.
In Northern Ireland, you can discover the ancient legends and awe-inspiring beauty of the Giant’s Causeway – jewel in the crown of the dramatic, rugged Antrim coastline. While in the North, for something different, you might want to take in the incredible Titanic Experience: a unique visitor experience that shares the story of the RMS Titanic.
Few of our visitors leave without taking in one of Ireland’s top natural beauties – the Ring of Kerry. This mighty, 179km-long, circular route offers up some of the most beautifully rugged and verdant coastal landscapes, endless mountains and green valleys intermingled with quaint, rural seaside villages. It’s an experience you will never forget.
Then there’s the ‘savage beauty’ (as Oscar Wilde described it) of Connemara – a mixture of raw landscape and intricate coastline, just waiting to be explored.
If the city beckons, the vibe and energy of cosmopolitan Dublin is something you won’t want to miss – providing everything from an up-close and personal experience of the ‘black stuff’ at the Guinness Storehouse, to the ancient beauty and wonder of the Book of Kells at Trinity College.
Meanwhile Galway is a little piece of cultural and artistic paradise – home of street art, buskers and exclusive shopping.

Walkers are in for a fabulous treat, as Ireland offers every walking experience imaginable. There’s the wild beauty of coastal walks along the Wild Atlantic Way, the dramatic wildness of discovering The Burren on foot and the rich flora and fauna to be found on one of the country’s many forest walks.
There’s fishing aplenty here on the Emerald Isle – whether it’s in one of the mighty lakes of Donegal or pike fishing in Lough Derg.
If you’re an equestrian – you’ve got the best seat in the house for enjoying Ireland’s natural beauty, while surfers will be keen to ride the waves at one of the country’s hot surfing capitals, such as Lahinch.
No Irish experience is complete without sampling the music and dance that is so much a part of our culture. From informal sessions in cosy pubs to traditional music festivals and set dancing – there are so many ways to enjoy it all.
With its rich food trails, artisan producers and local provenance food, Ireland is fast earning a reputation as a hot food destination – and with the wild flavours of the Burren, the artisanal tastes of Tralee and everything else in between – you’re in food heaven.
Perhaps you’re looking for the luxurious experience of a 5-Star hotel – or a stay at one of Ireland’s ancient castles is on your bucket list? Alternatively perhaps you’re looking for the cosy warmth of a family-run guesthouse, local farm or traditional small town hotel. Whatever your style is, and no matter your holiday budget – we can make sure your stay ticks all the accommodation blocks.
