As a special treat, the tour includes a weekend in Cork, where you can immerse yourself in the Cork Folk Festival or go off on your own. We'll also visit Doolin Music House, chat with a bodhrán maker, take in a concert at the Killarney School of Music, and try Irish dancing. You are welcome to bring your instrument.

Traveling around the southern part of Ireland, we'll experience the breathtaking beauty of Connemara and the Dingle Peninsula, as well as the spectacular Cliffs of Moher, and we'll spend two days in the city of Dublin. Several historic sites and heritage centers are on the itinerary, along with opportunities to explore on your own, dine in local pubs, taste Irish Coffee, watch working sheepdogs in action... oh, and did we mention music?
