DAY TOUR TO WICKLOW IN THE GARDEN OF IRELAND

DAY TOUR TO WICKLOW “THE GARDEN OF IRELAND”

Saturday 18th April

This is a day trip to beautiful Co Wicklow known as “The Garden of Ireland”

Wicklow boasts some of the finest scenery in Ireland with its Mountains, Lakes and some stately houses from our distant past. The first verse of the Song “My Lovely Wicklow” penned by John Candy of Candy Tours perhaps sums up the story of Wicklow.

“There are thirty two counties in Ireland each with its own claim to fame

But there’s one that stands out from all of the rest, if you listen I’ll tell you its name

It’s the beautiful County of Wicklow with its Lakes and its Valley’s so grand

So I’m sure you’ll agree there’s no place to compare to the garden of all Ireland”.

Our first stop today will be Arboretum Garden Centre in Kilquade Co Wicklow.

Various refreshments may be had in Rachel’s Garden Café after which time will be      allowed to browse this wonderful Centre. After leaving Arboretum we will travel to Wicklow Town to visit and explore Wicklow’s famous Gaol formerly a prison and now a museum. There will be a guided tour of the gaol offering us a glimpse of life in Irish prisons of the past, a most exciting tour. After leaving Wicklow we will return to Carlow for Dinner in The Talbot Hotel and return to our original pickup points.

SEAN KEANE CARRAGH COTTAGE TOUR

SEAN KEANE CARRAGH COTTAGE TOUR

Tuesday 3rd & Wednesday 4th March

This tour takes us to the rural heartland of North Galway to a thatched Cottage of significant renown. This is the home where three generations of the famous Keane family lived and played their music and sang their songs that have now become famous all over the world. Back in a time when there was just one Radio Station in Ireland, broadcasters like Ciaran MacMathuna recorded the music and songs from Carragh Cottage, it gave the world a glimpse of the talent of the third generation of the Keane family. The treasure that is Carragh Cottage is indeed a unique attraction, a part of our history and a real cultural experience with a musician and singer who threads the stages all over the world.

Here we have the opportunity to savour this where it all started in Caherlistrane and rest assured that John Candy and Candy Tours will leave no stone unturned to make this a visit that will live long in the memory.

We will arrive in Carragh at 1.30pm on Tuesday 3rd for Lunch with the Keane family and afterword’s a session with Sean Keane. We will say goodbye to the Keane family in the late evening and travel to Flannery’s Hotel in Galway for Dinner and our own session in the Hotel.
