Irish and European Travel

Car Rentals Worldwide

Tour Clare is a travel website for the Irish going on holiday, and for those who are visiting Ireland and the rest of Europe. We are also a resource site for Irish Weddings.

This Irish-tourism website was created in 2001 to help the B&B's of County Clare after the tragedy of 9/11.

Today we have information throughout Europe but our hearts are still in Ireland.

All eco-tourism businesses are invited to send us an email and we will be delighted to add you to our resource pages.

Tours in Europe

We have a good number of tours around the world (see listings to the left).

For your convenience, our world tours can be reserved right here, from our website, well in advance of your holiday.

CarTrawlerCar Hire Tips

Our best suggestion when travelling anywhere is to rent a car well in advance of your travel date.

If you are visiting Ireland, we feel renting a car on your holiday is the only reasonable way to visit all the castles, abbeys and other bits of antiquity you might want to explore.

Stay in a hotel with a good pub if you want to drink. This is just good common sense, of course. If you want to hear trad music in a local pub, take a taxi and ask the publican if he can provide you with one for the return to your hotel.

Check with your insurance carrier before your holiday to see what excess coverage (if any) you will need on your car hire. Many times it will be completely covered and you will know in advance so you won't be sold any insurance you don't need.

Read a little about the local laws and blood alcohol levels that constitute DUI.

European Car Rentals

Visit our European Car Rentals page to find out what to expect when travelling throughout Europe. We have driving laws and tips on most countries, and information ranging from Spanish car hire to renting a car in Portugal.

Did you know Serbia requires you to turn off the engine if you are stopped in a tunnel over one minute? I know it's creepy but we don't want a tunnel full of Serbs getting mad at us now, do we?\ Dublin Airport.

Irish hotels have not, in recent years, been the bargain they are today. Most hotels in Ireland have greatly reduced their rates and they are eager to play host to you.

Irish Tours

Dublin Tours

In Western Ireland, alone, there are over 3,000 earthen and stone forts, 130 megalithic tombs, 300 castles, 250 ancient churches, seven cathedrals, 12 monasteries, 20 stone crosses.

This is not to mention 15 round towers, delights to behold, and a panoply lesser monuments.

On a clear day, you might want to visit the Burren, one of the most beautiful and haunting geological wonders in Europe.

In any event, we hope you'll have a lovely visit to Ireland but be careful when stepping behind those rock walls. You never know where a stray leprechaun might be waiting to collect you.

Visit our Caribbean Website, Tropical Welcome
Tours and holiday information for travel to the Caribbean

The consistently warm weather makes a Caribbean holiday an even better value year round. You get to go outside more often.

Also, with the recent slow-down in travel, many resorts and cruise lines are offering extraordinary discounts. Puerto Rican Golf - If you are thinking of taking a golfing holiday in the Caribbean, this is an excellent site for golfing in Puerto Rico. This is also an all-around good site for learning golf etiquette.

San Francisco ToursIf you're going to San Francisco...

Wine Country Welcome has information on tours and activities. (Oh, yes, and be sure to wear some flowers in your hair.)

If you are planning a holiday in San Francisco or California's Wine Country to the north, our other sister site, Wine Country Welcome has all the information you might need, such as a complete list of wineries in San Luis Obispo, Napa and Sonoma Counties.
