Come explore the Western coast of Ireland with Gloria Frank, an Irish expert and Hibernophile (like a Francophile for Ireland), who’s made exploring Ireland her long-time passion. Gloria has an Irish soul and when she plans a trip it’s a labor of love.
Ireland, appropriately known as the Emerald Isle, is a country steeped in history and rugged vistas. We'll encounter these vistas first hand as we hike to high cliffs, remote islands, coastal areas, and the lunar landscape fo the Burren. We'll learn about Ireland's turbulent past, including the Great Famine, and the centuries of conflict between the British and Irish.
The Emerald Isle is known for its varied and delightful hiking and on this trip we aim to sample the best. We'll experience the diverse geography of the island as we hike parts of the Wicklow, Kerry, and Burren Ways, visit Killarney National Park and the Cliffs of Moher, and hike in mountains and along cliff tops. We'll also listen to Irish music and sample Irish cuisine, learn about Irish history, and experience the hospitality for which Ireland is known.
