A Custom Group Tour of Ireland

We recently put together a custom tour for a small group from Brazil.  We worked closely with Freeway Viagens to create a very special itinerary bursting with unique experiences for this group.  This group had a special interest, painting.   Artist and Art Teacher Mary Porto and Claudio Crow who is an expert on all things celtic accompanied this small group to Ireland.

During this 12 day tour they enjoyed many memorable and uniquely Irish experiences.

Unique Experiences in Ireland

Unusual picnic locations

Indoor picnic at Glenstal Abbey

There were many scenic locations for the group’s picnics but the most memorable and unique was an indoor picnic at Glenstal Abbey!  At lunchtime it started to rain and the group were kindly offered a private living room in Glenstal Abbey as a location for their picnic.

Tree Hugging at Muckross Park

As they say a picture is worth a thousand words

Meditating on the Burren

Connecting with the Spirituality of Glendalough

Interesting & different locations for art class each day.  

Each day the group participated in an art class with Mary Porto.  These classes took place in a variety of different locations including Trinity College, Glendalough,  Glenstal Abbey, Muckross House and the Gothic Church at Kylemore Abbey. Every day the group had a different place to paint.

Ceol agus Craic (Music and Fun)

From dancing on stage in the Merry Ploughman Pub to performing with local traditional Irish musicians in Ennis, the group experienced plenty of Ceol agus Craic !

Dramatic Irish Landscape

There is a reason why the Cliffs of Moher have been used as a film location  - sheer drama.  The cliffs have featured in Harry Potter and also the Princess Bride as the Cliffs of Insanity.  The cliffs are also a wonderful place to paint!
