Outside Dublin Tours
Wild Rover Tours
We are delighted to announce that GLOBETROTTERS HOSTEL has teamed up with Wild Rover Tours to offer you a unique service that will see you picked up from our doorstep and delivered safely to one of Ireland’s many cultural and historical treasures.
Just imagine stepping out of bed, enjoying a full Irish breakfast, which will set you up for the day, step out the front door and begin a journey that can take you to such mystical places as the Burren Coastal Drive, The Cliffs of Moher or the romantic cobbled streets of Galway City.
If what you want is to enjoy the richness of Irish culture and tradition, you can snap the rustic landscape carved by the rigours of time on the Wicklow Mountains, Glendalough and Kilkenny.
Wild Rover Tours can also take you in comfort to the mythological soaked shores of the Giant’s Causeway, watch as the sea washes over the hexagonal prints left by the great giants of Irish folklore. Journey to the Titanic Quarter in Belfast and browse over the now romantic story of the great ship Titanic etched in the chronicles of time by the great movie classic so beautifully acted out by Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet.
Our doorstop pick-up can also transport you to a less romantic time in Irish history, one that is still too often played out on the streets of the north of Ireland, the Belfast City Political Walking Tour. This tour takes visitors around areas that will be known mainly from news reports over the past 40 years. For those who wish to keep up to date with political and current affairs this political tour is a must, however, each visitor must make their own interpretation about what did or did not happen in the north of Ireland, so often, history has its own way of re-writing itself.
Whatever trip you take be that a coastal trip, and historical tour or a combination of both, you can be certain of safety, security and luxury as you get picked up on our doorstep and delivered to your place in time and history.
Even if you are not staying with us, but wish to wait for the doorstep pick-up, everyone is welcome to step into our premises and enjoy a value for money breakfast.
