It has been a strange time during Covid and we have not been able to travel to Ireland since 2019. We hope that travel will soon open up and allow us to bring you to all the amazing places on that beautiful Emerald Isle. But seen as we cannot at this time bring people to Ireland we thought that it might be a nice idea to bring a little of Ireland to the People, so with that in mind we created a program called "Chatting Up the Irish". We have a 30 min chat with a very interesting person from Ireland, many of whom we have met on our travels and know personally to tell us about their area of the country and their interests and skills.

We speak with artists, musicians, wood carvers, historians, tour guides to name but a few. Below you can view the programs. We hope you enjoy them and if you decide to come to Ireland with us when it opens up you might even meet and have a chat with some of these great people.

We have organized music in the  local pubs for our tour groups. These sessions are very welcoming to anyone who would like to sing a song, or dance, or indeed, join with an instrument. 

You will hear, for free, some of the finest musicians in the country.  These musicians have travelled the world with their music, but there's nothing like playing in the local pub with their friends.

We will bring you to all the stunning areas only the locals know.

You will see lakes, mountains, sea shores, forests, holy places, and much more. You will meet the locals who might just tell you some stories about where you are.

Relax and take in the fresh air. Go for a walk, take pictures and soak it all up.

On our travels we will see 11th and 12th century ruins of Castles, Abbeys, underground passage tombs, outdoor altars and famine grave sites.

You will go back in time listening to the history of these places. 

We will also be bringing you to restored castles and modern gravesites. "Oh but why are they bringing me to a gravesite" I can hear you say. Just wait and come with us, you will be amazed at what you see.
