Featuring the Wild Atlantic Way

Western Gems of the Emerald Isle

per person

Come along on a grand adventure through western Ireland brimming with spectacular beauty, cherished traditions and warm hospitality! On this first-class journey, enjoy six nights in the charming market town of Ennis and two nights at a family-owned, country-house hotel on a 400-acre estate in Mallow. Take in the breathtaking coastal splendor of the Wild Atlantic Way as you see the majestic Cliffs of Moher, the Burren’s fossil-laden terrain and the stunning Loop Head Peninsula.

Discover historic monuments while exploring the unspoiled Aran Island of Inishmore and the atmospheric Rock of Cashel. Plus, embrace Ireland’s creative spirit as you listen to traditional songs in a musician’s cozy home, visit the beautiful settings that inspired poet William Butler Yeats and learn about renowned literary legends. You’ll also savor delectably fresh Irish cuisine, including an exceptional, farm-to-fork dinner on the estate and an artisanal lunch at a stately manor.

This small-group experience features educational insights from expert guides and lecturers, a Travel Director and wine with all dinners.
