And now for something different!
Transylvania immediately brings thought of Dracula to mind, but it is so much more than that. Beautiful medieval towns, amazing castles, stunning landscapes around the Carpathian mountains and loads of fun-filled activities.
It’s an historical melting-pot of nations and civilisations, were modern-day Romania meets with Germanic and Turkish pasts.
For Irish schools, our Transylvania tours represent something quite different. In partnership with our colleagues in Bucharest, we offer schools 4* accommodation and an English-speaking guide to accompany you every step of the way. It’s a journey away from the usual – scenery, food and culture. You won’t be disappointed!

Bram Stoker was born in Clontarf in 1847. Today, he’s best known as the author of Dracula, but he never actually saw Bran Castle! All references to Dracula’s Castle in the novel are based on accounts and sketches.
Transylvania is a region of Romania – Romania’s capital Bucharest is actually located in Wallachia but is used as our base for flights to and from Dublin.
Romania uses the Leu as its currency and you’re going to have to convert in advance of travelling. Romania is an E.U. country but the Euro isn’t used here.
Flight options change from time to time, but currently Ryanair flies directly from Dublin to Bucharest.
