Every corner of Ireland has a story to tell; all you have to do is listen. Oral tradition has been a part of the culture here for as long as there’s been a culture, and in the hands of a gifted storyteller, the lines that separate Ireland’s ancient past and its recent history blur and shift. Immerse yourself in Irish culture, discovering the Celtic roots, landscapes, history and tales that make Ireland a place of legendary status. Embark on an in-depth journey of the country with a private driver-guide, stopping along the way to meet up with local experts in a multitude of fields, all helping to unearth the rich intricacies behind the Emerald Isle.

This exclusive Explorers Club Collection journey through Ireland begins, appropriately enough, in Dublin, where you’ll have the chance to test your abilities at a Gaelic Games experience, before spending a day in the company of author and historian Lorcan Collins, who will regale you with tales, retracing the historic 1916 Easter Rising in Dublin. Later, hike the startlingly picturesque UNESCO-protected Howth Peninsula – described by author H.G. Wells as “the most beautiful view in the world” – and take a private tour of Howth Castle. In the countryside, the story of Ireland is brought to life by skilled local experts. You’ll explore the Waterford Camino trail with PHD spiritualist Phil Brennan, tour Cobh (last port-of-call for the RMS Titanic) with historian Michael Martin, and take to the skies over Skellig Michael and the fabled Ring of Kerry via helicopter with archaeologist Isabel Bennet. You’ll also witness the captivating intersection of nature and human history at Beara Cork, discover the archaeological treasures and unique birdlife of the Dingle Peninsula, and so much more, returning home most nights to a fascinating array of accommodations ranging from restored castles to converted lightkeeper houses. With a wide range of unique accommodations, there is no doubt you’ll be overcome by the Celtic spirit. Raise your glass to this once in a lifetime expedition through Ireland.
