11 Days | 10 Nights
Love to learn in a small-group setting? This collection of programs has at most 10-24 participants.
See our Small Group programs.
EasyFor people looking to exercise their minds more than their bodies. There’s minimal walking and not too many stairs.
ModerateThese programs get you on your feet and include activities such as walking up to a mile in a day through a city and standing in a museum for a few hours.
ActiveFor people who enjoy walking as much as two miles a day, perhaps to explore historic neighborhoods or a nature trail.
Moderately ChallengingFor hardy explorers who enjoy a good physical challenge, spending most of their days on the go.
ChallengingGet ready to keep up with our highest-energy group. These demanding — and rewarding — programs are for seasoned outdoor enthusiasts.
If you’re looking for a more flexible schedule with ample independent time and several meals on your own, then our FLEX learning adventures are made for you.

Looking to connect up with people going on the June 27 - July 7 trip. Penny Barrows
Lynette Nelson May 31, 2014 at 10:54 PM

My husband, Ron, and I are going. We will in Phoenix. First time to Ireland. Can't wait! We are leaving a few days early to meet some long lost relatives in Dungarven. Then we'll meet up with the tour in Shannon. Look forward to meeting you. Lynette Nelson
Sedona Sister Jun 01, 2014 at 02:26 PM

Lynette, I will be traveling with my sister, sister-in-law and a friend (husbands are staying home). We look forward to meeting you and Ron soon.

Everyone heading to Dublin - be sure and go to beforehand and tell your friends to look for you at this camera in Temple Bar district - you can send a 'live' postcard as it even has SOUND!! Super fun! Paula from 'Best of Ireland trip, April 2013'

Connie Willoughby Apr 06, 2014 at 01:19 PM

I'm thinking about going to the Kilmainham Gaol on the 17th. Still checking the bus details to see if feasible. Anyone interested?
Jackie Switzer Apr 11, 2014 at 04:54 PM

I would like more details
Connie Willoughby Apr 11, 2014 at 11:51 PM

I think it may be more time-consuming than I want to spend.
Jackie Switzer Apr 11, 2014 at 11:52 PM

This sounds interesting. Appears to be available by public transport.

Connie Willoughby Apr 06, 2014 at 01:16 PM

Anyone want to go on a Literary Pub Crawl in Dublin on August 15th?
Jackie Switzer Apr 11, 2014 at 04:54 PM

I would like more details
Jackie Switzer Apr 11, 2014 at 11:50 PM

Jackie Switzer Mar 31, 2014 at 12:37 PM

Caroline Bernard May 01, 2014 at 11:01 AM

I'm on the Ireland part of your trip - where are you leaving from?
Jackie Switzer May 02, 2014 at 11:22 PM

Austin, TX. Where are you?
Caroline Bernard Jun 18, 2014 at 12:30 PM

Jackie Switzer Jun 18, 2014 at 02:39 PM

Has anyone traveled Ireland in October? Wondering about the weather.
Kathryn H Mar 31, 2014 at 09:29 PM

I am hoping to book this trip for those dates--waiting for an aunt's decision on coming along. I am considering making the trip on my own.
Bettie Corey Jul 19, 2014 at 09:08 AM

I am going on the Oct 3-13 program and am also curious about the weather. General information says 40s to 60s but I would be happy to hear from someone who has been there in October.
