January 20 - 30, 2022
'The Calling' is a unique music and cultural tour of Ireland, incorporating not just one, but two music & culture festivals! This trip takes place in two locations- first, in beautiful remote County Donegal, on Ireland's famous 'Wild Atlantic Way', where you will be introduced to the history, culture and music of Ireland by the local historians, artists and musicians.
The second part of the trip is in Dublin, for the largest and best Festival of Irish Music- Tradfest. Tradfest takes place over four days, in various different venues around the city. Many of the venues are places of historical and cultural significance, and they provide a very evocative atmosphere for the performances. Tradfest brings the very best of contemporary and legendary Irish musicians and bands together in one place.
An Unfortgettable Trip!
- 4 Nights in Donegal (including a trip to the city of Derry)
- 5 Nights in Dublin (including TradFest)
What's Included in the Trip
Many people who visit Ireland don't want to do the 'tour' thing, but would like some guidance and local interaction. So when you arrive, Niamh and John will introduce you to all you need to know, fill you in on the history and culture, and take you to some wonderful places. When we get to Dublin for Tradfest, you'll decide what gigs and events to go to, who to go with, at your own pace and time. You'll be in a city center hotel, and you can take everything at your own pace. It's perfect. Your fees include all your accommodation & breakfasts, all the musical performances, guided trips and talks, and your transfers from Dublin-Donegal.
