Our Wild West Irish Tour was magnificent and mystical.
Our local tour guides were knowledgeable, fascinating people, who were always flexible with the needs of our small group. Our guides gave us wonderful connections to the community and provided information and insight that I did not get on my previous trip to Ireland years ago. The options for activities seemed boundless from climbing Knocknarea to visit Queen Maeve, galloping my horse on the beach and learning about megalithic sites, to joining local dancers for a lesson and sets at the pub and the opportunity to dance some steps to top notch Irish musicians in a session. Every day was a wonderful adventure, like the surreal experience of looking out the car window at seaweed as we drove out at low tide to Coney Island, then getting to see a hunting falcon on the island. There is always a surprise, like visiting the Fairy Glen, and a gentleman comes walking up out of the glen and recites a bit of poetry Yeats wrote about the glen.
Our B&B hosts, were exemplary. They were warm, open, welcoming and always helpful and accommodating. We had wonderful discussions at breakfast to start our day, and our last night was very special as we shared spirituality, song, music, dance and poetry. If you want to go to Ireland GO WILD WEST! The experience was beyond anything I had imagined.
