IRELAND WITH ERIN HART
April 8-18, 2016
10 days/9 nights in Ireland focusing on history, mystery, archaeology & folklore
I'm excited this year to be working with Jean Wynne of Celtic Journeys. I will be leading a small band of a dozen or so on a wonderful trip called "Ireland with Erin Hart" focusing on history, mystery, archaeology & folklore—full of fascinating historic sites, informal chats with archaeologists, folklorists, storytellers and musicians.
Dates are April 8 (departing the US) to April 18. Have a look at our full itinerary, and find out how to make your reservation—just click on the links below.
The booking deadline is February 8, 2016, so please get in touch with Jean Wynne right away if you're interested!
Join me for this unique trip through Ireland, visiting many of the places that have inspired my writing, from the archaeology of ancient sites, the peat bog and its hidden treasures, and all along the way exploring the folklore and folkways of Ireland, past and present.
We'll spend three nights in Dublin, exploring the city and taking in the the bog men and the Faddan More Psalter at the National Museum, along with the Book of Kells at Trinity College, traditional music sessions, and a day trip to Lough Crew megalithic cemetery.
From Dublin we'll head to the ancient monastery at Glendalough, and take in Ireland's oldest city of Waterford where we'll go into the Mayor's Wine Vault, under the city from medieval times.
Then westward to Dingle Peninsula, taking in its rugged beauty (not to mention its music and fresh seafood) before traveling up the coast and into West Galway, Connemara and the Aran Islands. Along the way, we'll visit with renowned storytellers, musicians, archaeologists, and folklorists. Finally, we'll head east across the bogs toward Dublin again and have a last night in a Barberstown Castle, a magical way to end your journey through Ireland!
