Tours for 2017
For 2017 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 tour on modern Irish history and literature that will take us from Dublin, Belfast to Derry, and Donegal, and a "greatest hits" of the West of Ireland, based in Sligo and Galway.  

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 2017Tour
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.
In Search of Modern Ireland

The History and Literature of the Irish Nation--1920s-2000s

In this special tour we will concentrate on the consequences of Irish nationhood from the 1920s to the Good Friday Agreement and beyond. We will begin in Dublin, taking advantage of one of the greatest of all literary holidays--Bloomsday, a city-wide celebration of Joyce’s great novel in the places that inspired it. After touring sites associated with the Irish War of Independence and Civil War we will head north to Belfast and Derry for a first-hand look at the Troubles. On the way, we will visit the Patrick Kavanagh Centre in Monaghan and the newly-opened Seamus Heaney Poetry Centre in Bellaghy, County Derry. In Donegal we will travel through Brian Friel country before returning to Dublin.
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.
