Forge a path through County Mayo in the remote, northwest corner of Ireland. From your base in Westport, a winsome Georgian town, embark on a special journey steeped in Ireland’s rural traditions, literary legacy and musical heritage. Admire the rugged, striking landscapes of Achill Island and Croagh Patrick, and feel the energy pulsating through vibrant Galway, known for its lively musical scene. Visit picture-perfect Kylemore Abbey, nestled along a lakeshore in the Connemara mountains.

Cruise stunning Killary Fjord as you lunch onboard, and step back into the Stone Age at Carrowmore Megalithic Cemetery. Best of all, enjoy time in Westport, as you stroll along the Quay, browse through local shops, savor freshly caught local seafood and observe daily life in a traditional Irish town. This seven-night journey includes first-class accommodations, engaging educational presentations and ample meals with wine at dinner. For solo travelers, the single supplement is waived.
