South of Ireland Tour May 8-18 2022

The tour to The North and West of Ireland beginning on May 22, 2022, is now open only to a waiting list, but I've added a second tour, South of Ireland, from May 8 to May 18, 2022. It should be a mighty jaunt and warn the neighbors!

South of Ireland tour highlights include:

• The breathtakingly beautiful Dingle Peninsula on the very edge of Ireland
• The Great Blasket Island Heritage Center
• Scores of sites associated with early Celtic monasticism
• A host of antiquities hidden away off the average tourist trail
• The picturesque towns of Limerick, Rathkeale and Abbeyfeale
• The extraordinary Flying Boat Museum, the only one of its kind in the world
• Limerick City with its magnificent Norman cathedral and castle
• Ennis, in the heart of Clare, the most famous place in Ireland for traditional music
• Doolin, a delightfully scenic fishing village
• The dramatic windswept Cliffs of Moher
• The Burren with its amazing landscape featuring some of the most remarkable antiquities in Ireland
• Tipperary and Wexford and Kilkenny in all their splendor
• Walking tour with an acclaimed and entertaining cultural geographer Jack Burtchaell in South Kilkenny
• Cork, the colorful port town known as The Beautiful City
• Musical history and songs with Jimmy Crowley, the Bard of Cork,
• History of Irish emigration in the Queenstown Heritage Center in Cobh, the Titanic's last port of call
• Kinsale, the colorful town famed in Irish story and song
• An exclusive talk and reading given by renowned writer and broadcaster Catherine Foley
• Private concerts every evening with Mick, fiddler Liz Hanley, and some of the best musicians and singers in Ireland including the wonderful
Mulcahy Family who between them play almost every instrument in the Irish musical tradition
• Full Irish breakfast every morning and seven gourmet dinners in gorgeous hotel dining rooms
• Stay at the elegant Old Ground Hotel in Ennis, The River Lee in Cork, and The Granville in Waterford

The cost of the tour is $3495 per person based on double occupancy with a single supplement of $700 and does not include air fare. The price covers all internal travel, accommodations in fine hotels, open bar reception the first and last evening, admissions to museums and heritage centers, concerts and all gratuities. A detailed daily itinerary will be sent to you upon request.

A deposit of $700 (refundable up to eight weeks before the tour's start date) will guarantee your reservation. Your check, payable to Irish Folklore Tours, should be sent to:
