This journey takes you through the archaeology, history, and landscapes of Ireland’s “Wild Atlantic Way,” from south to north along the west coast of Ireland. Explore the breathtaking landscape of the Dingle Peninsula, County Kerry, visiting numerous off-the-beaten-track monuments from all periods of Irish history. Heading northwards into the incredible karst limestone region of the Burren, County Clare, you will enjoy stunning cliff-top views out to the Atlantic and visit intriguing sites set in a unique geological and ecological landscape. Travel onwards to Clare Island, off the coast of County Mayo, the most surveyed island in the world in terms of geology, ecology, and archaeology. From here we head to County Sligo and Yeats’s country, where you will explore the lives and monuments of the first farmers in Ireland and walk in the footsteps of ancient pilgrims, who in turn respected the traditions of even more ancient peoples. The final leg of your journey will be in Northern Ireland, learning about the region’s turbulent modern history, and venturing into the wonderfully remote and stunningly beautiful County of Donegal. Travel in a small group of no more than 12 travelers and enjoy the personal attention and service of a highly respected Irish academic lecturer/host and a charming tour manager, plus a host of specialist guest guides.
