      About this trip

      IMPORTANT INFORMATION - please read through to the end.

      Enjoy our amazing Celtic journey as it is perfect for anyone, but especially a quilt enthusiast as we've planned this visit to enjoy Ireland from a quilter's perspective. Our comprehensive tour features the best of Emerald Isle scenery and with our relaxed touring schedule we will have ample time for quilt and  fabric browsing as we enjoy the sights along our way. We've even expanded the tour this year to include an additional day to enjoy the Ring of Kerry and an opportunity to take a celtic theme quilt class with one of Ireland's most beloved quilting instructors.  Our special journey together will highlight the beauty of the Irish countryside, diversity of the Irish culture and allow us to meet and enjoy the company of Irish quilters.

      When booking, unless you are paying for everyone on your booking's fees, we strongly suggest each person book separately (as individuals).  Otherwise please note that communications are only sent to the booking person on the account, including invoices.  We cannot separate booking accounts once they are booked.   No one but the person making the booking will be able to make changes to the booking.  Booking separately also allows us to communicate easily with each person on the booking.   Once again, if you are booking and not planning to pay on your cabin partner's behalf, please book individually.

      So you will be in the same cabin as your travel partner, there is a place to note roommates on the booking form.

      Quilters Journey of Ireland Highlights


      One must be 21 years of age or older to participate on this tour.

      Our circle Ireland tour begins and ends in Dublin and takes us north to Belfast, then west to the beautiful Irish coast, then south giving you a first hand glimpse into all that makes this beautiful island so magical.  In Dingle, you will have an option to enjoy a quilt class with one of Ireland's most beloved quilting instructors.  The tour is an Emerald Isle dream you won't want to miss.

      In addition to multiple quilt and fabric shop stops, some of the other stops on our tour include (but are not limited to):


      Dublin: Enjoy the vibrant pubs, eclectic markets, and numerous cultural attractions that make Dublin one of the most interesting small cities in the world. Founded as a Viking settlement at the mouth of the River Liffey, Ireland’s capital city is rich with history and filled with storytellers. Major landmarks include: Christ Church Cathedral (the oldest building in Ireland), the Dublin Castle (which has stood since the 12th Century), the Spire of Dublin, the statue of Molly Malone, Trinity College, and the Guinness brewery. Here  you’ll find cobbled streets, lit with the ruddiness of pubs ringing with Irish folk tunes.  

      Belfast: Compact and easy to explore on foot, Belfast is known for its pubs and an attitude that values having a good time. There are hundreds of pubs in Northern Ireland’s capital, but The Crown is something special and a must for any visitor, located just across the street from the Grand Opera House. Belfast has something to offer everyone, from an international selection of restaurants, bars, and cafes, to a rugged natural splendor that surrounds the city. Also, the birthplace of the Titanic!

      Ulster Folk Art Museum: Step back in time and uncover a way of life from 100 years ago. Discover cottages, farms, schools, and shops as you wander through the beautiful parkland of the Folk Museum chatting to costumed visitor guides demonstrating traditional crafts. Climb on and off majestic steam locomotives or experience the sensation of flight in the Transport Museum bursting with horse drawn carriages, electric trams, motorbikes, fire-engines, and vintage cars. 

       County Kerry: A county in the South-West Region of Ireland, Kerry is one of the most mountainous regions of Ireland. It faces the Atlantic Ocean and features many peninsulas, inlets, and islands, resulting in a breathtakingly picturesque landscape. Kerry is as close as one can get to the mythical Ireland: A Celtic kingdom of misty mountains promised by glossy brochures and Hollywood films. **

      Dingle Peninsula: Located in County Kerry and comprising Europe’s westernmost point, the Dingle Peninsula features stunning views, natural wonder, and extensive archaeological monuments dating back 6,000 years. This is the sort of fairytale place that one might imagine when reading Celtic folklore and mythology. Many Hollywood movies have been filmed here.

      Slea Head Drive: A circular route, beginning and ending in Dingle, which takes in a large number of attractions and stunning views on the western end of the Dingle Peninsula. Slea Head is a well-known and recognized landmark and very scenic viewpoint, with a dramatic view of the Blasket Islands.

       Ring of Kerry:  Rolling green hills and sparkling lakes. Sheep and cows grazing in patchwork fields. Unspoiled golden beaches giving way to jaw-dropping cliffs. You will find each turn brings a new treat, from lakes, rivers, waterfalls and castles. This treasure on southwest coast of Ireland really has it all.   

       Sheepdog Trials: Enjoy up close and personal viewing of sheepdogs and the sheep they guard.  See how they work, obey commands and take care of their flocks.  This is a rare treat that has been well received by our guests. 

      Blarney Castle: A medieval stronghold in Blarney, near Cork, Ireland. At the top of the Castle lies the Stone of Eloquence, better known as the Blarney Stone, which legend tells us is a magical stone upon which Irish kings were crowned. 

      Waterford Factory:  A manufacturer of crystal, the factory is named after the city of Waterford, Ireland. The origin of crystal production in Waterford dates back to 1783, when George and William Penrose started producing extremely fine flint glass that became world-renowned. Today, skilled craftsmen are on display demonstrating their trade of making the Waterford Crystal. Experience the meticulous process of molding, blowing, cutting, sculpting, and engraving that goes into producing this fine crystal. 


      Before booking this tour, please review and understand the terms and conditions found at our website.  Please note, the final payment deadline is February 1, 2024.  Should someone register after this date, full payment is due at time of registration and space/prices are subject to availability.  Please register early as spaces cannot be guaranteed.   

      If you are registering as a single person, wanting a private room, this is very simple, just enter the information requested.

      If you are registering and want to share a room with a friend, be certain you include your friend's name on the registration form.  If it is left blank there are no guarantees we will figure out who it is you want to room with.  It is BEST IF FRIENDS BOOK SEPARATELY as wetravel.com only sends one invoice, the total cannot be separated.

      If you are registering and need a roommate in order to go, please indicate this in the space provided.

      It's also quite easy to book with your roommate - but again unless you are paying for both people in your room, we suggest you each fill out a form.

       Please do not make air arrangements to Dublin until you the tour has been confirmed as a go.
