Our trips to Ireland are limited to 22 guests plus our exemplary guide and driver. We visit three counties per tour. Counties Cork, Kerry, and Clare define our southwest tour, counties Mayo, Galway and Clare our western tour and in 2018 we will visit counties Donegal, Sligo and Clare for our northwestern itinerary. These counties are home to some of the most spectacular places on this earth, and as we travel we’ll be soaking in all that Ireland has to offer, an experience you will never forget. These extraordinary places feature rugged coastlines with crashing waves, calm beaches, roadways lined with glorious, flowering hedgerows, and much, much more. I promise you will never take the color of green for granted again!
By day we may visit castles or abbey ruins, stone circles and fascinating archeological sites, making stops along the way for lunch or shopping in a fishing village or a mountain pass cottage, all the while taking in the breathtaking Irish scenery. And at night… we’ll be wining, dining and listening to some of the finest live Irish traditional music you’ll ever hear.
We’ll fly to Shannon and meet up there, and our group will travel in a small luxury coach/bus. We’ll stay in small hotels and the occasional B&B—3 nights in Skibbereen (County Cork), 3 nights in Dingle (County Kerry), and 3 nights in Doolin (County Clare). We’ll ride to nearby Shannon airport the following morning so you can catch your flight home… or travel to your next destination. (If you wish to come early or extend your stay, we’ll be happy to suggest travel and sightseeing within the country. Bus and train transportation in Ireland is excellent and affordable.)
This is no ordinary tour where you rush from town to town so quickly you forget where you are. This is a small, personal tour that is centered on the arts and culture of Ireland, especially the amazing music. We’ll be stopping in local pubs and venues for back–room sessions where virtuoso Irish players will charm us with their whistles, fiddles, guitars, and bodhrans (Irish drum). These tours are one of a kind, and you will get a taste of Irish life at an Irish pace.
One of the advantages of touring with a small group like ours is the flexibility it offers, and that flexibility is one of the reasons our tours are very special. While we will follow a schedule for our daily plans, it’s always possible that weather or other circumstance won’t permit an activity. If that’s the case, there will always be an equally excellent option at hand.
Cost is $2350 per person based on double occupancy (two to a room). $2800 for single room rate (single room availability is limited). Cost covers nine nights lodging, the luxury coach, all breakfasts, three group dinners, music, island ferries, and heritage centers. Guests pay for their flight, lunches, six dinners, drinks and tips. All tours begin at Shannon Airport, SNN, 30 miles north of Limerick in west Ireland.
A $800 deposit is required to hold slots after confirmation from us. Balance is due in two payments, 6 months and 3 months prior to the tour dates. Ireland does require a passport. For questions or to confirm your spot please contact us: firstname.lastname@example.org
