Experience matters

MOST

Gather is a small but vastly experienced team, united by a shared passion for design, culture, sustainable travel, and innovation.

We are selective, and unapologetically so.

It’s not about numbers for us – its about the experience we can deliver.

We’re happy to remain small because that means we can personally create each luxury leisure trip to Ireland and each bespoke Irish corporate and incentive trip with confidence and pride.
