New "Between Two Worlds Tours" 2008

Our “Around Bhride’s Garden” tour is very popular with strong advance bookings for 2008.


This is an all Ireland tour custom built for group requests. Accommodation is generally 4 star hotels and transport is comfortable luxury coach. We still visit several ancient sites not touched by most other tours and provide workshops in ancient traditions. The main benefit is being able to visit several parts of Ireland in one tour.


However, largely due to the falling US dollar, I have also had requests for “budget” Irish tours but without cutting the spirit of places we visit and not lowering to hostel level accommodation.


Here is what we can now offer with our new “Between Two World” tours.
