Tours for 2018
For 2018 we have organized three special tours for June: celebrations in Sligo and Dublin around Ireland’s two great literary giants, W.B. Yeats and James Joyce, a "voyage out" to the Aran Islands, visiting all three of the island and a tour along Ireland’s Wild Atlantic Way, and a "best of" tour celebrating what we know best: Ireland’s magnificent northwest.

Additional tours can be arranged for your family or small group. Tell us when you want to go, for how long, and the kinds of things you would like to see and do. We will do the rest, and deign a unique experience in Ireland you will never forget.

We also offer short- or longer-term chauffered tours for one to four people. Again, you tell us where and what you would like to do in Ireland, and we will take it from there.

Yeats Day in Sligo & Bloomsday in Dublin 2018 Tour
We will combine the two greatest literary celebrations in Ireland--Yeats’s birthday festivities in Sligo and the Bloomsday celebrations in Dublin--into a truly memorable eight-day tour.
Aran Islands and Along the Wild Atlantic Way

Ireland Looking West and East

In this special tour we will voyage out to the Aran Islands for a close encounter with one of the most unique places on earth. We will first get our bearings in lively Galway City before exploring the Burren and sailing to our homebase for four nights, Inisheer, the smallest of the three Aran Ireland. We will travel to Inishmaan, the middle island, where Irish playwright John Millington Synge was advised by Yeats to go "to express a life that has never found expression." We will also sail to Inishmore with its magnificent stone fortress Dun Aonghasa, erected around 1100 B.C. Back on the mainland, or as Aran Islanders call it, "Ireland," we will travel up through Connemara along the breathtaking famine trail to Westport in County Mayo for a two night stay that will include a visit to Achiiles Island, one of the most picturesque spots along the Wild Atlantic Way.
The tour will explore the history, culture, and literature of the west of Ireland. To paraphrase Gabriel Conroy in James Joyce’s "The Dead": "The time has come for you to set out on this journey westward."

The Best of the West (Along the Wild Atlantic Way)
For this special tour we have organized the best of what we do, focussing on the West coast of Ireland, along the Wild Atlantic Way. Based in Sligo and Galway, we will explore the heart of Yeats Country, along the famine trail in Mayo and Connemara, to Galway City, our homebase for excursions to the Aran Islands, the Cliffs of Moher, the Burren, and the monastic site of Clonmacnoise. The tour will feature amazing scenery, Irish literature and music, and encounters that you will be hard pressed to duplicate on your own. Join us for this special small-group experience.
