Matthews’ range of tours open up the north-east and the border region to a vast range of visitors who experience the undiscovered jewel of Irish tours, and they don’t stop there. From Equestrian and Whiskey Trails to 'Castles and Craic', you’ll find a whole new way of looking at the whole of Ireland on www.matthews.ie. Contact them for details of the Pub Tour of Ireland, the Northern Ireland Adventure, the Celtic Fling Tour and many more ways to experience the country in a way that you never thought possible.
They have an extensive range of short breaks and day tours. Their luxury short breaks are generally four days in duration and with an ever-expanding year-round programme covering destinations such as Donegal, West Cork and Bantry Bay, Historic Wexford and race meetings at Aintree and Cheltenham.
They offer a full programme of guided day tours within Ireland, which makes them extremely popular with groups who get to see the country’s beauty spots and return to base on the same day.

Matthews also operate the first regular tour from Dublin’s hotels to the Titanic Experience in Belfast, which includes a tour of Belfast. Matthews Coach Hire is constantly active in promoting the north-east as a destination to potential tourists in both the United States and Europe.
“Because of the Troubles, both sides of the border were seen as somewhat off the tourism trail until recent times,” said Colm Murphy, Travel Coordinator with Matthews Coach Hire. “There are few trips to compare to the likes of Slieve Gullion, the Mourne Mountains, the heritage sites of the Boyne Valley, or the medieval town of Carlingford.”
