As we begin our next 50 years, you can be sure that your story will continue to be the one we value most. Brought to life by our team in the heart of Dublin, our hand-crafted itineraries offer unequalled Celtic expertise, deep local relationships and insights, and highly personalized service.


This is your story, write it any way you like with a travel style best suited for you. From fully guided vacations that bring destinations to life with hands-on experiences and exclusive “Be My Guest” opportunities to meet and enjoy a meal with locals in their home to the absolute freedom of discovering Ireland and Scotland on your own schedule, Brendan makes it easy to travel your way. Brendan Vacations offers five vacation styles to take you personally including fully guided, customizable private chauffeur, golf, locally hosted rail and self-drive options. Select one or mix it up. The choice is yours.

Our stories bring yours to life. They say a place is only as good as the people in it and in this part of the world, we believe it’s doubly true. However you choose to travel with us, you’ll meet our storytellers, stay in our hand-selected accommodations from castles to B&Bs, explore our rugged edge of the world and get Brendan’s highly personal service as we bring you into our Celtic legacy.


Relax into the ultimate in stress-free travel. Each itinerary is carefully designed
to showcase the must-see sights as well as stir your senses with our unsurpassed
Insider Experiences, brought to life by your local Travel Director.


Designed around you, for you, these hand-crafted vacations are planned expressly by Brendan and fully customizable. This is the most intimate and personal of travel styles that begins with a professional chauffeur who remains with you throughout the length of your trip. Offering the finest accommodations, luxury transportation, and expert guidance, this travel style is for those who value flexibility as the ultimate extravagance.


Discover the home of golf and some of the most incredible courses offered in these beautiful countries. We’ll arrange all the details from tee times and transportation to accommodations and sightseeing for the perfect vacation on and off the course.


If you appreciate leaving the in-destination transportation to someone else, enjoying the chance to relax on the journey but to explore on your own, then a locally hosted rail trip is for you. With a friendly Brendan host in each city to offer expert advice and rail tickets for the next stop, you truly can have it all.


Hit the open road on any budget with carefree confidence. You can rely on our team of experts to use their connections and knowledge to arrange for the best destinations, negotiate the best savings, hand-select the best accommodations and even handle breakfast each day, giving you the freedom to enjoy the locals you meet and the culture you’ve come to discover.
