It's a great day to experience some of Europe's wildest natural beauty and most ancient Christian sights.

"Too numerous to choose just one: Slea Head Drive and the Blasket Islands, Cliffs of Moher, The Giant's Causeway and the Antrim coast, the Aran Islands with Dun Aengus, the political murals in Belfast." Ireland is great and the tour was even better! The cliffs of Moher to the Sleay head loop - the towering cliff with the sea crashing is just spectacular!

The grounds were stunning, the weather was perfect and our activity of falconry was very unique and special. the country, the history, the people, the stories, the food, and the music!
