The North West of Ireland is a spectacular part of the country with its mountains, lakes and stunning coastline. We call these our Home tours because this part of the country is where we come from. it is one of the most cultural parts of the country and we look forward to intreducing you to that culture. The itinerary is full of beautiful scenery, we take a boat ride on a lake, we visit castles, abbeys, a Forest Park, cities and the highest Cliffs in Europe. We take in a holy Shrine and the famous Foxford Woolen mills too!
Ireland is a mystical, magical place and we want you to relax and enjoy your stay while there. We stay in a small, rural, family run hotel in Sligo for the majority of the tour where we are central to all the amazing places we visit. We get to meet the locals and we also bring in some local musicians to entertain you on a couple of nights while you are there. We don't have to stand in long lines waiting to get into venue's and we have no climbing to do or long walks either. So we just take our time and spend plenty of time in each place we visit so you can take it all in!
