      Itinerary

      Day 1
      Arrive at Dublin Airport and meet your driver/guide

      Transfer to Westport Co. Mayo via the Midlands.

      Visit to Strokestown Park & Famine Museum. Cost of Admission is included in your tour price.
      Strokestown Park was built by Thomas Mahon MP (1701-1782) on lands which had been granted to his grandfather, Nicholas, in the latter half of the 17th century for his support in the British colonial campaign. It was the family home of the Mahon family until 1979. 


      The house provides a fascinating glimpse into the Anglo-Irish ascendancy. Many rooms are on show including a schoolroom and a child’s bedroom, complete with 19th century toys and mirrors. 


      The Famine Museum is located in the original Stable Yards of Strokestown Park House. It was designed to commemorate the history of The Great Irish Famine of the 1840's and in some way to balance the history of the 'Big House'. Whereas the landlord class had the resources to leave an indelible mark on the landscape, the Irish tenants lived in poverty and nothing of a physical nature has survived to commemorate their lives.


      Continue to Westport & Enjoy and evening of Music in Matt Molloy’s pub in Westport

      Overnight, bed & breakfast at your hotel in Westport.

      Excellent trip. Accommodations were outstanding. The hotel was great about opening the kitchen early for days we had early tee times scheduled. Our driver, James, was a key contributor to the overall enjoyment of the trip. He knew the best pubs and the history of the places we visited. His knowledge and sense of humor made him an integral part of our adventure. Having all the arrangements coordinated and scheduled was a huge convenience. Wouldn't do a trip like this any other way going forward.
