Cultural, Historical, & Wildlife
Tours of Ireland

Welcome to theGreenPicnic.com where we specialize in helping you discover Ireland. We offer exceptional accommodation, guided travel, and a customized itinerary.

Custom Tours
Each tour is built around your special interests, be it castles, gardens, cooking, wildlife, sports, art, ...you name it. We offer special insight into those off-the-beaten-track gems that Ireland has to offer.

Expert Guides
Dr. Timothy White, an expert in Irish history and culture, guides all of our tours and is both knowledgable and friendly. Dr. White is a professor at Xavier University and leads both student and custom tours. Dr. Herren, Dr. Bertaux, and Dr. Farnsworth, also teach courses on Irish literature, economics and ecology. In addition, we use a number of local experts whose specialties range from Irish dance and music to local ecology and history. Read more about our local guides on our About Us page.

Accommodations
Most of our trips include a stay at beautiful Bansha Castle located in County Tipperary. We also usually stay at our favorite Bed & Breakfasts along the coast depending on where your interests take us.
