Detailed Description

Music and dance vary from country to country and even city to city. In Ireland, the sounds and movement of traditions can vary between counties. Your 10-day Ireland tour highlights the captivating music steeped in ancient heritage and shaped by the land, cultures, and elements of the Emerald Isles. Your musical journey begins with your arrival at Dublin International Airport. The private transfer escorts you to a luxury hotel in the heart of the capital city.

Explore the fascinating depths of the aristocratic grounds and bask in your first live performance of traditional tunes inside a classic pub in the Cultural Quarter. The culture of Ireland has long encouraged and supported the melodic qualities through the generations, preserved in the captivating defenses of Kilkenny Castle and the festive traditions of Dungarvan, a town renowned for its traditional Irish music. Relish the chance to meet local musicians, visit ancient monasteries, and sing with locals happy to welcome a friendly face to the historic pubs.

You can sing a verse dedicated to the myths of the Blarney Stone when you visit Blarney Castle before learning the ways a modern poet sings the ballads of his town Inchigeelagh. Find pleasure in the marvelous beauty of Gougane Barra National Park, an area that has inspired verse, song, and dance throughout Irish history. Visit Killarney and the surrounding historical sites before basking in the beauty of seaside Dingle, which includes a fascinating concert shining a spotlight on the heritage of Irish music.

Traverse the Dingle Peninsula where legend, poetry, and music are interchangeable. Bring history to life at Bunratty Castle and Folk Park before speaking to a local musician about the gathering inspiration from the past. The Cliffs of Moher captivate you, the landscape of the Burren move you to awe, and the Irish Traditional Music Center in Milltown Malbay offers the perfect place to wind down your exploratory Ireland tour with an eclectic montage of the music of Clare County.
