The recent strength of USD vs EUR means that travelers from the United States to Europe are currently finding the best value in over 20 years when booking their upcoming travel arrangements.

The Irish economy has by now recovered from the pandemic and there is full employment in the country. However, many drivers left the tourism industry during the lockdowns and there is consequently a shortage of chauffeurs.

Also, the conflict between Russia and Ukraine on Europe's Eastern border is leading to shortages and price increases throughout Europe. Although Ireland is on Europe's western edge, far from the fighting, we have not been immune to the related inflation.

European gasoline prices are increasing and hotels and B&Bs in many regional towns are already full through the first half of 2023 as the Irish government hosts tens of thousands of women and children refugees from the conflict.

With these factors in mind, we recommend placing a deposit to fix your tour price as soon as you have decided upon dates - as prices are likely to rise in the coming months.
