Join us for our unique music and cultural tour — an opportunity to enjoy an authentic and educational experience in Ireland. The 10-day trip spans two Irish cultural festivals and a host of cultural activities in between!

What could be better than escaping the January Blues by flying over to Ireland and enjoying not one, but two Irish music festivals - one on the stunning, scenic Wild Atlantic Way, and then TradFest in Dublin City. This is an Irish experience that truly has the best of both worlds. There are options to do history, culture and guided trips with us, but there are also plenty 'me-time' options. You're with the locals, we show you the best places, the best restaurants, the secret spots, and then bring you the absolute best of Irish musicians. Weather in January, you say? We say it's probably very much milder than where you live now, it's always beautiful, and shelter is by a roaring fire, with a pint and a live gig. It would be mad not to do this if you can!

Four Nights in County Donegal Ireland’s most scenic and beautiful county.
