In 2000, Wonder Voyage chose Ireland as its first international destination. Twenty years later, the misty Emerald Isle is now our most extensively explored location and one of which we never tire.
Ireland has a way of feeling like home, especially since so many of us have roots that that lead back to her shores. The stone walls that line the roads span not only miles but also centuries. Every footstep you take will touch thousands of years of history. Although Ireland has a past of famine, war, and bloodshed, she is home to storytellers, dreamers, and generous people who seek great change for their beloved homeland. Come to Ireland and you’ll be greeted with a genuine smile, a warm cup of tea, and a “Cead Mile Failte.”
Traveling to Ireland with Wonder Voyage will give you the rare privilege to live like a local. You might stay in a monastery and feel the spiritual rhythm of a “thin place.” You might wander paths leading to castles and natural wonders that are unknown to the tourists. You might experience the beauty of the island from atop a windswept mountain and from the gentle shores of a quiet village. From castles to crags to peat fires in pubs, Ireland will not disappoint. Answer the call to come to the wild shores of Eire and immerse yourself into her story. View our Ireland Wonder Voyage.
