Emerald Isle Elegance 

Introducing Connemara & Mayo

This is all about location, location, location and the coastline of Connemara and Mayo boasts a wealth of undiscovered secrets, far from the maddening crowds.  We have designed a multi activity tour to indulge your sensibilities into west of Ireland culture.  

 

You will spend your days exploring ancient landscapes and sacred sites and your evenings nestled into unique Irish accommodation, listening to the dulcet tones of our traditional seanchaí (storyteller) or enjoying a starlight tour of Ireland’s celestial skies in Mayo’s gold tier international dark sky park *. 

 

We’ll introduce you to Ireland’s cuisine with the freshest of local ingredients from Ireland's finest restaurants and country houses, prepared with gourmet expertise.  

 

This week-long experience features guided walks and cycle tours, visits to historic houses and heritage sites and even a traditional sea-weed bath for complete relaxation of mind and body. 

*weather permitting
