Hosted by Milwaukee Irish Fest and Institute of Study Abroad Ireland

Milwaukee Irish Fest and the Institute of Study Abroad Ireland developed a tour package, The Calling: Music and Cultural Tour of Ireland, that will take you on a unique music and cultural tour of Ireland, with four nights in County Donegal and five nights in Dublin, from January 16 to 26, 2020.

This tour, now in its second year, offers the opportunity to enjoy an authentic and educational experience that dives into the rich culture, history and scenery of Ireland, with of course, plenty of musical stops along the way. Kicking off in Donegal, you will be introduced to the ancient history of Ireland by local historians and will be able to enjoy live music sessions, nightly. This part of the trip also includes guided excursions to places such as the Ancient Tombs of the Boyne Valley and of Derry City (including the Bogside Murals), coastal walks, plus visits to Donegal craft breweries and distilleries.

The second leg of the trip will take you to the vibrant city of Dublin. Here you will have the opportunity to attend concerts at the renowned Irish trad and folk music festival, TradFest Temple Bar. The package includes admission to three lunchtime concerts, two evening concerts, one major headline concert, and the official TradFest and Milwaukee Irish Fest reception. TradFest concerts take place in some of Dublin’s most historic places, offering a unique and intimate setting. From City Hall to Kilmainham Gaol, these concerts will make for memorable and unforgettable experiences.

The Calling: Music and Cultural Tour of Ireland is $1,995 per person and includes: accommodation in a Dublin 4-star city center hotel and Donegal self-catering apartments with on-site pub and music venue; Dublin meal plan, which includes full Irish breakfast; Donegal meal plan, which includes large continental breakfast buffet and evening meal; tickets to TradFest concerts; cultural classes; live music sessions; and guided tours.

Airfare to Ireland and travel insurance is not included.
