Coronavirus - Covid-19 Pandemic

Firstly and most importantly, we hope you are and your family are all safe and well and we wish you all the best over these difficult times.

In view of the well documented implications of the unprecedented worldwide Coronavirus pandemic, we want to reassure you that that the safety and well-being of all of our touring groups is very important to us and that we are closely monitoring advice from the Government, Foreign & Commonwealth Office and ABTA.

We have been dealing with the repatriation of clients stuck in Spain and are supporting our staff who are in self isolation.

Our office is now in full lockdown and we have very limited email access but those who are able to work are working around the clock to ensure that we can assist our customers with the most urgent needs and our goal is to ensure that anyone due to travel in the next seven days has been updated on their tour and given a list of options available to them, we will not however have the resources to enter into conversations over these options at this stage.

We will continue to contact tour organisers whose travel plans have been effected.

Best wishes at what is a difficult time for us all and thanks for your understanding,

The Burleigh Travel Team

Tour Destinations in Ireland

Cork is located in the South West of Ireland, and you will find plenty there to occupy your party during their stay, including the picturesque and lively Patrick Street. Cork also enjoys an abundance of nightlife with numerous bars, clubs and restaurants to keep the older members entertained while there is Ten Pin Bowling and a Laser Park nearby for the younger members.

Dublin is a city of many contrasts, a cosmopolitan European centre with impressive avenues and squares and a mixture of traditional pubs and modern nightlife. Combine this with its picturesque coastline, mountainous countryside and the warmth of the Dubliners and this should prove an enjoyable and memorable tour.

Galway in the West of Ireland, is situated on the river Corrib and boasts a wealth of sights including Medieval walls, Lynch’s Castle and the Spanish Arch.  All this combined with the vibrant nightlife and the local love of sport should make for a memorable tour.
