What makes traveling down an Irish road with Switchback the ultimate
way to visit Ireland? Perhaps it’s the care we put into a tour that combines
relaxation and exploration, music and history, pubs and castles, great
food and drink, meeting the locals and enjoying their culture. Most of all it
is time spent with fellow Switchback fans who become your friends.

This year we return to one of our favorite places, Westport, Co.Mayo.
We will have options to cruise along the coast, shop, run up to Sligo
to visit Yeat’s country, a sightseeing tour of breathtaking Achill Island, a
night at Chieftain’s own Matt Malloy’s Pub, two nights in Dublin as well,
with a grand dinner with traditional step dancing and all with the music
of Switchback!

*Tour based on 40 travelers. Cost is pp. Single room fares can be
arranged. Optionals are a la carte and extra. Air from other cities
