Listen carefully, and you can hear it: a tin whistle over the roar of the sea at the base of soaring cliffs. A gentle lilt of a Dubliner following the soft whoosh of a handloom. The clopping of horses’ hooves in the morning and the eclectic sounds of a Killarney pub as the sun goes down. These are the sounds of Ireland, a country with a rich history and a soul that reaches down into the depths of Ireland’s culture. After one day on the Emerald Isle, and you’ll wonder why anyone would ever leave....

Detailed Description

This is the country of rolling hills of green and lilting songs of the love of the land, where the smells of a hearty Irish stew mix with the glittering of light on the waves of the Atlantic, and where the charm of the people more than matches the heroic sweep of the land beyond. For ten days during this custom tour to Ireland, you will experience the Republic of Ireland in all its romantic splendor, in all its poetic glory, and in all its ebullient charm.

Designed for 2020, explore the city on the banks of the River Liffey as you walk the famous thoroughfares of Dublin, a cosmopolitan capital with a rich literary tradition and a pub scene that is sure to keep you enraptured. Cross into the rugged west to the ancient kingdom of Connacht, where the Aran Islands linger in the swell of the Atlantic and the Cliffs of Moher soar over surf and turf alike. Drive the inimitable Ring of Kerry and kiss the Blarney Stone in a true excursion to Counties Cork and Kerry. From the Irish Sea to the Atlantic Ocean, from the far reaches of Munster to the borderlands of Ulster, this is a true Irish adventure, one that is sure to captivate your senses and capture your heart.
