June 6 to 13, 2014: A week in Ireland with Cathie Ryan - Galway, Kerry, Clare, Offaly, and Limerick. Space is limited so book early!
Come and enjoy the beauty and magic of Ireland with Cathie Ryan and Saoirse Tours! Cathie has decided to begin doing guided tours of Ireland again after a long hiatus. For fourteen years she shared her sojourns in Ireland with fellow travelers and lovers of Irish folklore, music, and story. Many of her best songs were inspired by those deep immersions into the myth and landscape of Ireland. It is time to return! Beginning in Shannon early on June 6 and meandering through Clare, Galway, Kerry and Limerick, the tour will come full circle back to Shannon on June 13.
Cathie has chosen a different approach for this first tour. Instead of 45 people on a large coach, she will take a group of approximately fourteen to twenty on a smaller coach for a more intimately shared experience. She has chosen Fran Ryan of Saoirse Tours Dingle to plan the itinerary and lodging for a week that is sure to enchant. Fran has guided hundreds of American travelers throughout Ireland in the past five years. She has expert knowledge of both her native Clare and her adopted home of Dingle in Kerry, as well as the rest of the thirty-two counties. She is a lover and self-taught scholar of Irish history and will share her knowledge and perspective with us each day as we travel. We will enjoy lots of planned events both musical and cultural, spontaneous gatherings, concerts, sing alongs, pub visits, the beautiful Irish countryside, and the inspiration of it all!
Cathie will share her songs, stories, and tales of myth and folklore on the bus – at the sites – anywhere it seems fitting! She is looking forward to sharing this time in the landscape and music of Ireland with you.
