Celtic Charm Caravan
For more than 20 years, we’ve seen large groups of travelers tour Europe in buses. But we noticed that there’s a sector of travelers who want to tour more independently and there were no agencies that offered this service. Our CLASSIC and SOFT Caravans include a CaravanConcierge (tour leader) from arrival to departure, a daily preprogramed GPS and a prepaid cell phone to reach the CaravanConcierge at any time. We tour with a minimum of eight and a maximum of twenty travelers.
So, we’ve moved away from the traditional bus tours by giving everyone their own car to use while exploring the country. Prior to departure, travelers receive a Road Book with all the applicable information of your destination, including maps, GPS coordinates of each and every place you visit, service vouchers, and driving details for the destination.
But don’t worry, we still provide our travelers with all the necessary safety features like pre-paid cell phones, a programmed GPS and even some travel books.
At Lark Tours your Ireland Convertible Caravan, gives you the flexibility to see, smell, touch, hear and taste the sights in Europe for yourself will create a more memorable and luxurious experience.
There is a totally different experience of Ireland that awaits. A guided, but flexible to your personal itinerary, group car caravan. Ireland is just over twice the size of Maryland, and an enchanting destination for romantic souls with a love of history and genealogy, culture, dramatic scenery and amazing food and drink, and those just wanting to relax in its unspoiled scenery and beauty.
Ireland is a land that is symbolic of shamrocks, legends and leprechauns, all in a Gaelic language of its own.

Ireland is as charismatic and as it is mythical.
History can be found under just about very stone from prehistoric Stone Age ruins to medieval monastic marvels to the colorful political murals of Belfast and Derry.
Rainbows are as prolific as sheep, and lyrical expressions float in the air and on every street corner. The weather can be unpredictable, but their hospitality and humor are guaranteed to make you smile.
It’s pint sized capital Dublin, has a wealth of charm and wit along with ions of history and heritage all poured into a medieval castle, century old pubs and glamorous Georgian architecture. Foodies are flocking to the city radiating with exciting new culinary experiences.
