Sitting on a curve of the River Shannon, Clonmacnoise is known for its incredible High Crosses. After lunch nearby, we will continue our journey west toward Galway and our first resort, the wonderful ‘Twelve hotel’ in the village of Barna, just outside Galway City. The Twelve Hotel is joint winner of Irish hotel of the year in 2018, and the food here is just amazing. It’s also right on Galway Bay so you can easily stroll to the beach, or enjoy some traditional music in the pub right across the street from the hotel, should you feel the need.

Day 2

This morning after breakfast we will drive the short distance to the Aran Island Ferry, bound for a day of adventure on Inis Mor, the largest of the Aran Islands off the west coast of Ireland.

These spectacular islands have stunning scenery and a unique Gaelic culture almost completely intact, which is fascinating to see. On Inis Mor we will visit the incredible Dun Aonghasa stone age fort, a world heritage site, and explore the many sites and sounds of the island with our local guides, returning back to the Twelve Hotel in Barna later in the day to relax and enjoy dinner together swapping stories of our unique Aran Island experience!

Day 3

Today we will spend the day exploring the vibrant city of Galway, just a short drive from our hotel. Galway is a fabulous city for shopping, music and Irish culture.

Famous for its street  musicians (buskers) and pub sessions, we will enjoy lots of time to explore, shop and visit with Judith and Lillie as our guides. Later in the evening, we will continue our cultural experience with dinner at the incredible Dungaire Castle Banquet where we will enjoy music, poetry and drama in the surroundings of this impressive medieval Castle.

Day 4

This morning we say goodbye to Galway and travel south to County Clare where we’ll visit the iconic Cliffs of Moher, an incredible coastline of sea cliffs towering 900ft above the Atlantic Ocean.

After lunch at Moher, we then continue south to County Kerry, crossing the Shannon estuary on the Tarbet ferry, on our way to the pretty Irish town of Listowel, Lillie’s Irish ‘hometown’. In Listowel, we will stay the evening in the charming Listowel Arms, a quaint hotel situated right on the town square and overlookingThe Feale River. Once there we can enjoy the sights and sounds of this Irish heritage town. Enjoy coffee at Lynch’s Bakery, visit the Seanchai Literary center, or join in on a session at B. Keane’s Pub and more!

From Dromoland, we then continue north to the county town of Ennis where we’ll stay at the wonderful Temple Gate Hotel, an old convent that’s been turned into a hotel. Ennis in Clare is another great Irish town for music and culture, and Lillie has several personal musician friends who play regularly so I’m sure we’ll take in some sessions in the quaint pubs as we explore through Ennis.
