Why consider
travelling to Ireland

Ireland is a perfect destination for team building and travellers. Loaded with historic sites, breathtaking scenery and delicious dining, Ireland is the ideal place for rewards, incentives and all travellers. From the spectacular views of the Cliffs of Moher to quaint villages tucked against hillsides and thriving cultural cities there is always something to do and see in Ireland.

The capital, Dublin, is full of historic buildings, great dining and exciting activities like visiting the many fascinating landmarks and fine restaurants. Galway, on the West coast, is a cultural hub where guests can explore the cobbled streets and drink a pint of Guinness in one of Ireland’s traditional pubs and hear Irish folk music.

Great Accommodation and Dining
Ireland has a wide variety of accommodations ranging from luxurious hotels set amidst lakes and mountains to boutique hotels in small villages.

From fine dining, at top Michelin-starred restaurants to afternoon tea at the Clarence Hotel, there are great options for every budget.

Cashel Travel is an incoming tour operator and DMC with its head office in Edinburgh, with offices in London, Manchester, and representation in Ireland. We handle over 20,000 clients a year from all over the world. We look after incentive groups, conferences, group tours, and individuals.

We pride ourselves on our expertise in organising customised tour packages that offer much more than those you can get ‘off the shelf. We are more than happy to help with any request – the more unusual or challenging the better. We are one of the most respected companies in the business with a staff of multi-lingual travel experts who, between them, have many years of experience working in the UK and Irish tourism.


The company was founded in 2000 in Ireland by James Aitken.

James has 30 years of experience in the travel industry. He previously owned and sold Balmoral Travel and Mackenzie River Travel. The company was created as an independent family-run business and this is how it remains today. Being a Scotsman, he eventually chose to move back to Scotland and relocated the company headquarters to Edinburgh in 2007. After a few moves and staff additions, the company is now headquartered in a historic landmark near Edinburgh’s shore.

James was a consultant for Clansman Monarch and MacItalia. Currently, he is President of the Scottish chapter of SITE, the Society of Incentives and Travel Executives. He is a member of the travel trade and business tourism steering group at VisitScotland. He is also Treasurer and a member of the board of UK-inbound.

Marta Kucharczyk joined Cashel Travel in 2003. Previously, she worked as a lecturer in Poland in Polish literature. She oversees the operations department and is the joint owner. Currently, she has been developing new markets in Mexico and China.


We work exclusively in Britain, Scotland, Ireland and Wales. This exclusive focus means we have up-to-date information and first-hand experience that offers a real benefit to our clients.

We work 24/7 for every client. If a coach breaks down at 2am our clients know that there is someone at the end of the phone who can help resolve any issue.

We can offer a broad range of services. We have a team skilled at organising large events for individual leisure travel. From conferences to incentives, group tours, luxury leisure travel and event management, we have it covered so that you can relax.

We believe in being available. Clients typically liaise with a focused team of operational staff but the option to contact senior management is always available.

We don’t believe in surprises and we know our clients feel the same. We ensure that clients have a clear picture of their developing event at all times and are consulted on every appropriate occasion.
