The spiritual riches of Ireland await you in what many call “the best time of year in the Irish countryside.” After the tourists have gone and the Irish people settle into their fall routines, the inner riches of this remarkable landscape open up to the thoughtful visitor. We begin our pilgrimage in Co. Meath in the historic Boyne Valley, travel to the western seaside town of Sligo, down the west coast to set sail for the Aran Islands, following the Wild Atlantic Way to the Dingle peninsula, and then winding our way through the center of Ireland to Glendalough, the valley of the two lakes. This will be our 25th time to lead a group on pilgrimage to Ireland. We’ve learned much, and have developed life-long friendships along the way. This pilgrimage usually fills a year in advance.
