Irish Byways has provided five different tour subjects since 2004. We have planned tours for groups including University Student Tours for academic credit and are prepared for tours with University Alumni.
In 2020, we are offering two tours: “Landscape & Lore, Music & Myth” plus “Footsteps in an Ancient Landscape”. Singles, couples and groups of friends come to us from all over the USA!
If you wish to bring your own group of travelers (minimum 20 travelers) you may choose your own dates and are awarded a free seat on the tour.  You may also choose from our five tour titles OR request your own tour subject to be developed for you.   Irish Byways arranges the details of the tours including transportation and accommodations as well as the pre-tour communications with and all arrangements for your travelers. An Irish Byways Tour Manager travels with your group throughout the tour.
