LEARN MORE ABOUT OUR SPRING 2013 TOURS:
APRIL 8 - 19, 2013
NEW TOUR! “The Monastic Tradition Sites in the West of Ireland” designed and led by Masterful Irish Guide, Dave Hogan and Author, Anthony Previte. Please note in 2013 the Monastic Tradition Tour will replace The Pilgrimage to the Otherworld Tour which we have offered in the past.
APRIL 22 - MAY 3, 2013
“Landscape & Lore, Music & Myth” designed and led by Masterful Irish Guide, Dave Hogan. This extraordinary tour throughout Connemara (northwest of Galway City) has been described as �a sensory extravaganza� by previous enthusiastic travelers. Based in part in charming Clifden city, on the Atlantic coast, travelers enjoy day trips to sites throughout Counties Clare, Galway, and Mayo. This is a spectacularly wild and mostly still untamed region with stone fenced patchwork fields, bogs, mountains, valleys, lakes and streams.
�A tour with Irish Byways is a special experience. This company puts together the very best people to give the visitor to Ireland a real sense of the land and its history, culture, and present energy. Time is a magical commodity, respected and relaxed, without any feeling either of �hurry hurry� or of pointlessness. The guides know the land and its lore, and they know how to share these openly and comfortably with others.� --Anna H., University Study Tour traveller

Irish Music on our Tours
Ireland is steeped in traditional music; it feels as if it comes from the very rocks and mists of the land.

A unique and essential element of the Pilgrimage to the Otherworld Tour revolves around music. At the core of the tour lies "The Fire Eye Music Suite", composed by Garry Jones, Tour Guide.
