Overview Supplier
On this faith-based tour through Ireland, visit some of the historic sites important in the life of St. Patrick, Ireland's patron saint. You'll overnight in Dublin, Belfast, Claremorris, Galway, and Limerick. Along the way, you'll visit some of Ireland's most scenic sites and historic treasures, all while accompanied by fellow believers desiring an inspirational vacation.

Reaffirm your faith when you visit St. Patrick's Cathedral in Dublin, founded in 1191 and serving as Ireland's national cathedral since 1870. Learn more about St. Patrick and the introduction of Christianity in Ireland at the Saint Patrick Centre in Downpatrick. Stop in Armagh, Ireland's Ecclesiastical capital, where it is said that St. Patrick established his primary church. Visit Knock, a major pilgrimage site since 1879 when 15 townspeople saw apparitions that included the Virgin Mary. Here, visit Knock Shrine and the Church of the Apparition and Basilica. In 441 AD, St. Patrick fasted on the summit of Croagh Patrick—the holiest mountain in Ireland—for 40 days. You'll visit the Croagh Patrick Visitor Centre at the foot of this scenic mountain.

On this faith-based, Ireland tour, you'll also visit some of Ireland's most dramatic scenery. Gaze out at the breathtaking Cliffs of Moher, rising 668 feet above the Atlantic Ocean. Also visit Giant's Causeway, a UNESCO World Heritage Site with columns of basalt caused by a volcanic eruption 60 million years ago. Take a ferry to Inishmore, the largest of the Aran Islands, with their steep rugged cliffs. Here, visit Dun Aengus, one of Europe's most dramatic prehistoric stone forts. Finally, visit Glendalough, a glacial valley with two lakes that is known for its medieval monastic settlement.

These are just some of the many highlights of this Ireland tour featuring the legacy of St. Patrick. It's an inspirational vacation you can believe in!
