About Us

We are based in the South West of Ireland and organizing successfully tours and self-drive holidays for the German speaking market since 2010 and have a track record of excellence.

Our example short break packages give you already a small glimpse what you can expect from our Guides/Ebook and holiday planners. We mainly mention service providers which we have used ourselves. We travel the country continuously and are testing restaurants, cafés, bars and accommodation providers. 

Whether you are interested in activity or adrenaline based travel or simply relaxing outdoors, we offer in our holiday planner information for everything from kayaking to coasteering, hiking to mountain climbing, whale-watching to horse-riding and even foraging!

Dear S.R. Travel,

I would like to thank you very much for the great week throughout the area of Killarney. Our group, of 7 were so enthusiastic about each of the daily itineraries. Klaus, who can only participate in outdoor programs to a limited extent, was especially grateful that you could always offer him a great alternative.

We had informed you in advance of our wishes and you created a program out of it, which far exceeded our expectations. The beautiful landscape in the Killarney area also helped of course and helped make very versatile outdoor events possible.

Thank you again and ……we’ll be back.

I felt taken seriously at all times and my wishes were always taken into account and respected. At no time did I have the feeling that I was taking part in a mass-produced trip or with an agency that is only interested in money instead of customer service. In fact, the opposite was true. The service was provided was unparalleled: I have never before felt so well advised by any travel agency and that my inclinations and interests were taken into account so much. I can only recommend the travel agency with a good conscience to everybody. Thank you very much for everything!
