Celtic Villages & Islands

The traditions of Celtic culture run deep. Spanning from mythological fairies and banshees to ceremonies, festivals and rituals – passing through the villages of Scotland and Ireland will leave you with a lingering sense of magic. To visit these lands is to travel back in time to a world you perhaps never knew existed.

Your Trip

What's Included

Non-included Meals

Some meals are included on your trip (except for North America trips - please refer to your day-to-day itinerary). However, sometimes we think you'll benefit from getting out and discovering the local cuisine. So when a meal is not included, it's a great opportunity to try something new. For group trips, ask your leader for tips on where to get the best meal, or you might decide to dine out as a group and experience the fun together.

Not Included
