How the booking process works

1. Get in Touch with your First Ideas

The first step is to get in touch with us. Every tour we design is unique, tailored to the needs of the group. Once you have a bit of an idea of what your party might like please do get in touch to let us know and we can chat through how that might work in Ireland.

You do not have to work exclusively with us. If you already have a tour idea & have been discussing it with other companies we would love the opportunity to provide another quote for you. You might be pleasantly surprised with what we can do for your group. Please just contact usto see if we could provide a better option for your party.

2. We Plan the Perfect Itinerary

After our initial chat we will go and start putting some ideas together for the perfect itinerary for your group. Don't worry though these are not set in stone straightaway, we will keep in close contact with you and with your feedback can craft the ideal tour for your group. We can adjust everything during the planning process, from budget level to the types of farm visits to group size.

3. Confirm your Tour

Once you are happy with the itinerary then you would pay a deposit to confirm your farm tour of Ireland. From here on the details will be set. We will get all the accommodation, farm visits, attractions and everything else all booked up and in place for you.

The final balance is normally due one month before your arrival date here into Ireland.

4. Last-Minute Changes

After you have paid your deposit then everything is fixed and we can no longer promise to be able to make any adjustments. That said we have excellent relationships with many of our suppliers, and we understand that things do come up. So if for some reason adjustments need to be made please do still get in touch. We cannot promise it'll always be possible, but we can promise we will always try our very best to help.

Four things to think about in planning your farm tour

1. Selecting Your Interests

Let us know the interests of your group. We can arrange anything from a highly specialised tour just focusing on one niche agricultural sector, a broader-based agricultural tour taking in several different areas, our a general agriculture of Ireland tour where your group would see a whole variety of different agricultural produces across the full range of agricultural sectors operating here in Ireland.

Not sure what things there are to see here in Ireland? Please just give us a call any time, will be more than happy to chat through the agricultural industry and what's going on here in Ireland so you know the options available.

2. Education, Leisure, or both

We will work with you to help you make sure you take away exactly what you need from your farm visits. We can arrange educational visits for student and university groups, where they get to hear from experts in their own individual fields. Or perhaps you have a group of farmers who would like a more informal explore of similar farming operations in Ireland, with the opportunity to chat directly with the farmers in question, to share ideas and hear about the latest techniques being implemented in Ireland, there successes and the difficulties. let us know what your group would like to achieve and we'll arrange the very best agricultural visits to suit.

Some groups are interested exclusively in agricultural or horticultural visits, where some would like a mixture of the farm visits along with seeing some of Ireland's best sightseeing and cultural attractions. Whenever the balance you would like, just last know and we'd be only too happy to work with you to provide this.

Some groups are here for a sightseeing and cultural tour of Ireland, with a bit of an interest in the agricultural or horticultural sector. Less of a business interest, and more of a personal enjoyment of the countryside. We are only too happy to help the matter what your level of interest or reason for travelling to Ireland and exploring its wonderful countryside and coastal.

3. Budget and Accommodation level

The accommodation type you select is one of the major factors in the overall cost of your tour of Ireland. We can provide a full range of accommodation options, from budget friendly hotels and hostels for student and university groups, all the way through to five-star luxury and Castle stays. Just let us know which level is appropriate for your group and we can design a tour to include the perfect accommodation for you.

We do not have off-the-shelf prices, as every tour we design is unique. That said please do free to give us a call any time, if you let us know your group size, tour length and approximately the level of accommodation that would be appropriate then we can give you an indication of the ballpark figures to help get your planning going.

4. Planning your Dates

There is something going on in Irish agriculture all year round, and with Ireland having a very temperate climate then all 4 seasons offer plenty to see and investigate. Each agricultural sector will have different operations undergoing at different times a year, so do discuss with us what you're interested in seeing as the time of year will affect what operations you can experience.

More About Agri Tours Ireland

Why Pick Ireland for your Farm Tour?

Ireland's fertile soil, ample rainfall and temperate climate is perfect for growing, with Ireland's grass said to be the best in the world. Ryegrass is used as inexpensive feed primarily for beef and dairy farming. Around 80% of the land is for pasture, silage and hay, the remainder used for growing crops and rough grazing.

A modern, sustainable and profitable industry has emerged to take advantage of this, with all areas of agriculture and food development in Ireland following suit. Agricultural tours of Ireland allow you to see what makes the best beef, the best dairy products, the highest wheat yields, the fastest racehorses, and the fastest growing conifers.

Whilst you are here...

No visit to Ireland is complete without taking the opportunity to soak in the atmosphere of Irish City and Country life. With our years of experience we have honed our tours to ensure you see the best of real Ireland while you are here.

Amongst the Farms and Forests of Ireland, there are Ancient Stones and Crosses, Magnificent Castles and Monasteries; the sheep graze along mountain trails and the farmer enjoys live music and a pint in the local pub. Agri Tours are happy to provide these authentic Irish experiences while you visiting Irish Farms.

Your Tour Your Way

Just let us know the perfect balance for your tour and we will create a unique itinerary to match. Some groups would just like a few pointers for a great Irish pub to enjoy a drink at the end of the day, and other groups would like a much larger bias on the sightseeing aspects, spending a significant part of their time experiencing all of Ireland's magnificent history and culture.

As part of the Discover Ireland tours group, our knowledge extends far beyond the agricultural sectors of Ireland. So if you would also like to discover some of Ireland's history, experience its vibrant culture and get amongst its friendly people, we would be only too happy to incorporate these aspects into your Irish Tour.
