Scientific Tourism in Ireland

A WONDER SEEKERS trip will enthuse and inspire you to learn about the real Ireland: its rich literary history, dramatic coastlines, and incredible wildlife. 

Our immersive travel adventures will take you beyond the superficial for a unique, immersive experience. From ancient kings to heart-breaking famine ships and passage tombs, Ireland offers countless opportunities to spark and satisfy your curiosity. And if you’re lucky, you might even spot a peregrine falcon. 

WONDER SEEKERS experiences are founded on the principles of sustainable travel and eco-tourism. We encourage all visitors to visit Sustainable Ireland to find out more about how to travel responsibly. 

Dublin

Built around the River Liffey, and framed by mountains, Dublin is the capital of Ireland. A bustling city of streets and alleys, it’s famed for its creativity, sociable nature and craic (the local word for fun). Head just outside to Dublin Bay to explore tiny villages, bracing coastal walks and big sea views against a stunning mountain backdrop.

Ireland’s Ancient East

Bring history to life by delving into myths and legends spanning 5,000 years of history. Set by the Irish Sea, the rolling green hills and tranquil waters provide the perfect backdrop to explore a wealth of historic sites including Waterford Viking Triangle, Hook Head lighthouse and Rock Castle. The east is also home to the Irish National Stud: a thoroughbred horse breeding centre established and owned by the government.

Wild Atlantic Way

Experience wilderness and connection along the Wild Atlantic Way. This spectacular coastal route winds along the west coast taking in formidable seas, towering cliffs and mystical islands. Traditions are strong in this part of Ireland where the Irish language has been preserved. Discover stone circles, ancient graveyards, castles, lighthouses and deserted villages. This is a place of seclusion and connection with the past.
