About this trip

Join us on this trip of a lifetime to Ireland and discover a land of epic historical and cultural proportions, beauty, folklore, and modern progress. We'll spend several days in the iconic capital city of Dublin, absorbing its sights and sounds, learning about the magnetic artists, writers, politicians, and business people that have formed it and shaped it from the time of the Vikings into one of today's most important European capitals for technology and international business. 

Your guide is a native Dubliner who will share fun facts and help you reconnect to your own personal heritage, as desired.  We'll also visit Galway City, European City of Culture 2020, and enjoy time on the Wild Atlantic Way, exploring monasteries, castles, the coastline of Connemara, wildlife, and more all along the way!
