The primary reason that our self-drive package tours are so successful is because Celtic Rider staff have meticulously put together the absolute best driving routes in Ireland with equally great Irish guesthouses and hotels. This has genuinely taken an enormous amount of time and effort over many years and is still an on-going process. Simply follow the Garmin GPS provided with our carefully selected routes and accommodation already installed.
We call our tours, ‘Push Button’ because this is how we have designed them to be for our clients. We believe in assisting our overseas clients to maximise their experiences while touring Ireland. There is no problem deviating from our suggested route, just make sure to get to your accommodation each evening. Click on links below for more details:

Safety Orientation Course – visit our safety orientation page.
As with all our Self-Drive Motorcycle & Car tours, Celtic Rider Ireland designed a safety orientation course (approximately one hour classroom session, followed by one two hours on the road) which was specifically created to introduce drivers who drive on the right side, to Irish driving culture and situations to expect as you tour our island.
