Travel Department is Ireland’s leading escorted tour operator, with multiple departure airports across the UK.  In Scotland these depart from Aberdeen, Edinburgh and Glasgow. In Northern Ireland they fly from Belfast (plus Dublin and Cork) and for passengers from the South they depart from Bristol and a range of London airports. They have over 23 years’ experience of crafting beautifully curated, inspirational itineraries to worldwide destinations, all accompanied by expert local guides. With many Irish nationals travelling on their tours, the mood is upbeat, friendly and light-hearted, with conversations, storytelling, and sometimes even a little singing and dancing extending late into the evening. It makes for a fun, inclusive group where everyone feels welcome.
