We’re all a little bit Irish come March 17th, but if you’re in the market for something more meaningful than a pint of green beer, hop aboard this delightful 9-day adventure to the Emerald Isle. Even if Ireland isn't the Old Country for you, this trip will make you feel as though you’re back home.
This region of Ireland is steeped in history, with thousands of years of endurance and evolution recorded in the very landscape.
Connemara and the west coast is Ireland at its most beautiful, remote, mythical best. Out here, the mountains dip down and level out into the lunar landscape of the bog and the diversity of nature, coupled with the constantly changing weather, breeds a character all its own.
One of our newest tours, this Ireland trip explores Connemara, the broad peninsula of unspoiled beauty in the west of the island. The rocky peaks of the Twelve Bens mountain range will dominate the skyline as we cycle through the Connemara National Park.
This tour is one of our Self-Guided Biking tours, rated easy to moderate, with an average of 11-22 miles per day, with options on some days, spending between 2 to 4 hours per day on the bike. The terrain is fairly gentle with a few hills, but no steep sections.
Ireland is a country built on the bedrock of family. Your own clan will feel welcome here whether you're returning to your historic roots or just seeking a faraway but easy-tomanage destination.
Escape to the Ireland of your imagination – windswept isles, charming villages, and endless hiking options.
The Ring of Kerry. Dingle. The Killarney Lakes. You may have heard of them. But that's just where Classic Journeys begins.
Walks are on wide paths along coastal cliffs and a fjord, rocky trails, and through peat lands, pastures, farmland, and bogs. Walking sticks are highly recommended. The terrain is often uneven and can be slippery when wet.
What draws us to Ireland? Crashing seascapes, emerald valleys below striking mountains, the twining music of the fiddle, the rhythm of the language, and a people who offer one of the warmest welcomes in the world.
This journey of discovery begins in picturesque Dingle, where seafaring traditions pervade a vibrantly painted townscape, artisan shops, and tempting eateries. Spend evenings in the Malton, a 150-year-old architectural jewel with acres of manicured gardens.
The southwest of Ireland, washed by the Gulf Stream, has a mild climate -- indeed natives call it "sub-tropical." This is reflected in the rich vegetation, particularly the wild flowers and hedgerows, which contrasts with the rugged, craggy coastline and inland mountains and lakes.
On our Ireland walking tour on the wild Irish coast, we learn what it means to be Irish: friendly conversation, good Guinness, and lots of laughter.
