Ireland Insider Guide Fees

Ireland Insider Guide has a few tiers of fees and depending on the services of clients needs, we encourage you to read the FAQ.

Here’s an overview:

Ireland Insider Guide fees and prices 2013

I’d been doing Ireland trip planning for friends and family for over 5 years when I started getting more and more requests to do it for a fee so I sat down and thought about what I’d need to charge in order for it to be worth my time.

I know how many hours it takes me to execute each type of service, so you are paying for my time and my judgment.

I’ll spend time getting to know you, your family or group and make specific, high-quality suggestions based on your particular interests and travel style, without overwhelming you with choice or hitting Information Overload.


  • Coaching Services  

Plan your own trip with 7 full days of Ireland travel coaching by email from Ireland Insider Guide. Get recommendations and all details on the best hotels, B and B's, cottages, restaurants and pubs, tours, tour guides and specific activities that fit your interests and itinerary.

Guaranteed thoughtful response to every single question you ask. I’m happy to have a couple of short phone conversations but coaching must be done primarily over email.

The 7 days can be consecutive or split in half with a short break in between.

Fee: $300 / 7 days


  • Platinum Planning

For planning, booking, and a detailed written itinerary with maps, as in the sample Ireland itinerary design.

If you have no time to plan your trip, want the details organized from soup to nuts, and can’t afford to spend time problem-solving on your Ireland vacation, this option is for you.

I take charge of the project and do everything: All reservations, all planning, all double-checking, all budget management.

You sit back, make necessary decisions, and are involved as much as you have time for – and we execute, making sure your trip of a lifetime flows smoothly. Then in Ireland, you enjoy, and if you need to contact us for any reason, just pick up the phone.


  • Gold Planning

If you are a traveler who likes some things booked – hotels, a few guides, a few activities – but likes a little flexibility, this Ireland travel planning service is for you.

I  make sure the overall flow and balance of the itinerary is awesome, and work with you on recommending and booking hotels, plus an activity and a restaurant for each day.

This Ireland itinerary design works well for people traveling with small children or for anyone who wants a little structure during the day but also wants the flexibility to discover things independently, but with high-quality recommendations.

You might make bookings or reservations yourself while travelling in Ireland. This option does not include maps, or on-trip support.
