Here’s a trip that lets you tool around the Emerald Isle in style and sleep in luxury digs without mortgaging your castle.

With the “Ultimate Luxury Chauffeur Ireland” vacation, you get the use of a private chauffeur-driven vehicle for touring the countryside and transporting you from one destination to the next. You’ll stay at the Four Seasons Hotel Dublin, the G Hotel in Galway, the Killarney Park Hotel in Killarney and the Ritz-Carlton Powerscourt, County Wicklow.

Trip highlights include Dublin’s Temple Bar area and cultural sites; the imposing Cliffs of Moher on the Atlantic coast; the 15th century Bunratty Castle and 19th century Bunratty Folk Park; and Blarney Castle and its renowned stone.

Dates: Frequent departures from Oct. 3 through March 2014.

Price: From about $2,273 a person for a party of four or $2,780 a person, double occupancy; the price varies by date. It includes round-trip economy-class airfare from New York to Dublin; seven nights’ lodging; private chauffeur and vehicle; airport transfers; daily Irish breakfast except on the day of arrival; all local taxes, service charges, carrier and government taxes, fees and facility charges.

It does not include meals other than breakfast, gratuities to transfer drivers and chauffeurs or certain airline baggage and service fees. Limits on time and distance apply to guided sightseeing.

Note: The full price, due at the time of booking, is normally nonrefundable; optional trip protection, available at extra cost, provides refunds in the event of changes or cancellation.
