IRELAND: Archaeology of the Aran Islands and Dingle Peninsula August 8-15

Join Irish Archaeologist Michael Gibbons exploring the ancient sites of Inis Mór and the Dingle Peninsula
Discover the archaeology and rugged natural beauty of the Aran Islands and the Dingle Peninsula with archaeologist Michael Gibbons as your guide. Explore fascinating prehistoric and early Christian archaeological sites steeped in myth and lore. Trace Ireland’s transition from paganism to Christianity, and traditions rooted in ancient times that continue still today. Most of our touring with Michael will be on foot, which in many cases is the only way to reach the sites we’ll be visiting. You’ll not only learn about Ireland’s archaeology, but you’ll also discover Ireland’s gourmet nouvelle cuisine, learn about some of Ireland’s literary figures, and of course there will be time for visiting pubs and enjoying traditional music. This is an active trip involving walking and is limited to 12 participants. Click here for tour details
