Come to Ireland with me for ten days of incredible sights and sounds!
This is something not to be missed!
The group is limited to a maximum of 23 guests. We'll travel in a 33 seat luxury coach, and we'll stay in lovely hotels. Check out some of the testimonials from folks who've been on my previous tours. You can also see photos of some of the places we might be visiting.
Every person who has been on one of my tours has raved about their experience. Many say they never thought they would enjoy a group tour but loved mine. And others who have been on group tours say it is by far the best organized tour they were ever on. It will be unlike any other tour you’ve experienced. In fact, we call this the group tour for people who hate the very idea of group tours!
We'll make day trips to ancient stone circles, castles, fishing villages, bogs, beaches, museums, interpretive centers, possibly even to an island.
Every night we'll hear some great music, whether it be traditional Irish tunes or one of Ireland's top singer-songwriters. And on at least one evening I'll be performing for you. There will also be opportunities for you to offer up a song, a story, a poem, or a joke should you feel like participating.
The cost for the tour is $2650 per person based on double occupancy. For a single room it's $3150.
(We're limited to 1 single per tour)
The tour price covers everything (all ground transportation, lodging, full breakfasts each morning, 3 evening group meals, entry fees at historical sites, and all of the music) except for your lunches and 7 of your dinners.
A deposit of $800 per person (double occupancy) is required to hold slots after confirmation from me. (See our refund policy below)
The 2nd payment of $925 each will be due 6 months prior to the tour, and the final payment of $925 each will be due 3 months before the tour.
For a single, a deposit of $1000 will hold your place, with a 2nd payment of $1075 due 6 months before the tour, and the final payment of $1075 due 3 months before the tour. (See our refund policy below)
*Please note that the tour price does not include the cost of your B & B for the night when you first arrive. The tour will officially begin when our bus picks us up the following morning, and all lodging once we begin the tour will be covered by the tour price.

We always urge our guests to purchase trip insurance. I recommend www.travelguard.com.
Tour members will fly to and from Shannon International Airport. If you're interested in visiting Dublin or other parts of Ireland, either before or after the tour, I can pass along some helpful info on how to make bus or train connections between there and the village of Bunratty, County Clare, which is where we will all meet up to start the tour.
You'll be booked (by us) into a B&B in Bunratty for our first night, and we will provide the contact info for a local taxi company that works with us. You'll send him your arriving flight info and he'll meet you in the arrivals lounge at Shannon with a sign. That first night we'll all meet and have dinner together in Bunratty. Then, after a good night's sleep to get over any jetlag, our bus will pick us all up at the B&B the next morning and we'll head off on an incredible journey.
Ireland does require a passport. If you need to apply for one, I highly suggest you do it ASAP. It can take up to 10 weeks for your passport to arrive, although typically it takes less time.
If you have any other questions, feel free to email me at email@example.com.
I hope you will join me sometime!
