Ireland Sept 2020
September 1st -9th
I think you’d all agree it’s about time to get the show back on the road. With a few changes… This itinerary is designed to give us much more time to enjoy the destinations and we slow it down a little. We’re talking later departures, more two night stays, and a much deeper immersion into the country. We’re also taking in a wider variety of towns and villages, and plan on mixing the accommodation up a little too.
As many of you know, Mr. Cyril Kenny has been through the wringer. But that lust for life remains strong and with the help of Evan McElligott and Mr. Seamus O’Shea, we plan of taking you to places that are perfect for those of you that still up for having the Craic.

I know you’ll be keen to get the party started early, but if you can get a little rest, the day of arrival will be a whole lot kinder to ya!.
Upon arrival we explore the Loop Head area of Clare, this region is all too often passed by. The buses head straight to see the cliffs. We know areas that are absolutely stunning and without the crowds! We continue North a get a guided walking tour of the Burren (whiskey included) by one of the best. You’ll learn just why this land tells a story far greater than you’d ever have imagined. Then it’s on up to Doolin ( the epicenter of Trad music) where we fight off any ounce of Jet lag with a mighty session and wrap it all up with a
In my biased opinion, Tralee is one of the greatest towns in the country, and I intend showing you why. I’ll personally lead a pub crawl where we dip and dive into some of my favorite pubs – starting with my Uncles bar. We might even be able to get a few together for a bit of a sing-song. In true Cyril style, we will only be singing the first verse of all songs.
We head back into Tralee to take in Celtics steps. one of the newest shows to hit Tralee and a tour de force with some of the finest musicians and world title winner dancers.
Active Track? I’ll have a few surprises in store for those that want to balance out their excesses with a more active option. More to follow, but I know a place where you can paddle into the darkness, under the stars above under a newly waning moon.
This part of the trip is set up to let you carve out our own experiences, it’s impossible to keep everyone together and keep the experience authentic. The good part is at least we’ll all be able to share our stories later in the evening. But not too late, we have another full food/ Bev / music and day of Craic lined up tomorrow!😉
Here’s a look at the Website to give you an idea. The program is from last year, but feel free to check it out HERE. Just don’t get too fond of any particular session/topic. It’s likely to be very different.
Active Track – (It’s likely we might add an optional 1/2 tour to local attractions for those looking to be a little more active)
For those that wish to continue their journey and explore for a few days longer, I’ll be happy to make suggestions or arrangement additional plans.
