Embark on an epic adventure to the picturesque country of Ireland and discover the magic that the Emerald Isle has to offer. We will take you on a journey through western Ireland, the Wild Atlantic Way, stopping at all the must-see destinations and hidden gems along the way. Immerse yourself in the authentic Irish culture with visits to local pubs, traditional music events, and local markets. We are basing ourselves out of two main locations: Galway in the northwest and Killarney in the southwest. Each offers an unique perspective on the Irish experience.
The Northwest: Galway is a thriving small city full of young people who come for the university and the exciting culture that has emerge over the last decade. Galway is the ideal place from which to explore the history and natural beauty of Connemara, the Aran Islands and the Cliffs of Moher.
The Southwest: Killarney has long been the gateway to scenic County Kerry. This quaint town is surrounded by serene lakes and a spectacular national park. Killarney provides easy access to some of Ireland's most famous destinations including the Ring of Kerry and the Dingle Peninsula.
For a first time visitor, Ireland is truly a pleasant surprise for its lively culture, amazing history, natural beauty, and mostly its friendly and welcoming residents.

How To Book Your Room
All Rooms are allocated on a first pay - first serve basis. A $700.00 non-refundable deposit is required for every trip participant. Deposits from both room occupants must be received before a room is allocated. These deposits guarantee your room reservation until the Final Balance Payment Deadline. An email invoice is sent at your request, and it allows you to pay by credit / debit card via our PayPal account.
Payment Options – Final Payment Deadline: March 1st, 2024
All trip packages must be paid in full by March 1st, 2024. Retreat participants have the option of paying the entire balance at the time of deposit to receive a $100.00 discount. Alternatively, participants can sign up for an installment plan at the time of deposit by using a credit / debit card. This plan automatically pays the balance due with monthly automated installments that are completed on or before March 1st, 2024. Beyond this deadline, the reservation may be cancelled, the deposit(s) forfeited, and the room may be allocated to the wait list and/or put back on sale.
In the event you must cancel your trip, your entire payment will be refunded less the $700.00 deposit, if your cancellation is made before March 1st, 2024. Should you need to cancel after this date, for whatever reason, we will not be able to provide a refund or credit. No partial refunds or credits will be given for participants who arrive late or depart early on the trip. For this reason we recommend that all retreat participants purchase travel insurance that allows for trip cancellations.
Travel Insurance: Strongly Recommended
We strongly recommend the purchase of travel insurance in the case of any unexpected events or changes to your plans before or during your trip. Please review all policies carefully to ensure you get the coverage you want, including: trip cancellation or delay, personal property loss, medical treatment and emergency medical evacuation. The policies that offer "Cancel for Any Reason" benefits often require that you purchase this insurance within two weeks of your trip's first expense, i.e. the deposit.
