From remote Achill Island to the lively city of Galway, feast your eyes on the untamed beauty of Ireland’s western coast, the Wild Atlantic Way. Nestled along rugged terrain are inviting villages, historic sites and ancient monuments. While staying for seven nights in Westport near the holy mountain Croagh Patrick, spend your days learning about rural folklife, a 16th-century pirate queen, a countess who was a hero of the 1916 Rising, and Irish literature and art. Take a scenic drive on the coastal road around Achill Island, admire Connemara’s stark beauty, stroll through the picture-perfect village of Cong and feel Galway’s lively vibe. Visit Carrowmore Megalithic Cemetery, where dozens of large stone tombs give you a glimpse of neolithic Ireland. Lectures by local experts add another dimension to your experience. Enjoy first-class accommodations and an extensive meal plan, including wine at dinner. There is no supplement for solo travelers.
