Spring 2017 Ireland Tour with Erin Hart

Wouldn't this be fun? IRELAND WITH ERIN HART!

Erin Hart & Celtic Journeys:

May 25-June 4, 2017


Erin Hart is working again this year with Jean Wynne of Celtic Journeys, who set up last spring's fabulous itinerary!

Erin (and her husband, accordion maestro Paddy O'Brien) will lead a small band of a dozen or so on a wonderful trip called "On Haunted Ground." They'll focus on history, mystery, archaeology & folklore—traveling to fascinating ancient tombs, stone circles and monastic sites, bogs (naturally!) plus informal chats and guided tours with archaeologists, folklorists, naturalists, storytellers and traditional musicians.

Dates are May 25 (departing the US) to June 4. To have a look at our full itinerary, and to find out how to make your reservation—just click on the links below.

This is a unique trip through Ireland, visiting many of the places that have inspired her writing, from the archaeology of ancient sites, the peat bog and its hidden treasures, and all along the way exploring the folklore and folkways of Ireland, past and present.

Tour will spend three nights in Dublin, exploring the city and taking in the the bog men and the Faddan More Psalter at the National Museum, along with the Book of Kells at Trinity College, traditional music sessions, and a day trip to Lough Crew megalithic cemetery.

From Dublin they'll head to the ancient monastery at Glendalough, and take in Ireland's oldest city of Waterford where they''ll go into the Mayor's Wine Vault, under the city from medieval times. Then westward to Dingle Peninsula, taking in its rugged beauty (not to mention its music and fresh seafood) before traveling up the coast and into West Galway, Connemara and the Aran Islands. Finally, they'll head east across the bogs toward Dublin again and have a last night in the Dunboyne Castle Hotel, a magical way to end your journey through Ireland!

Options available for extending your stay in Ireland before or after the tour.

Full details, itinerary and reservation form are also on Erin's website, and at Celtic Journeys website.
