Epicurean, Equestrian, and Garden Journey
September 12-21, 2017
Tourism Ireland is pleased to announce a very special travel opportunity. Experience the incredible richness that Ireland has to offer this September with a beautiful small-group tour. Enthusiasts will enjoy the bounty of town and country, exploring Wicklow, Carlow, Waterford, Cork, Birr, and Dublin. Irish-born-and-raised garden designer and horse breeder John Lyons, who specializes in edible gardens, will be an engaging, expert guide on this one-of-a-kind vacation.
Destinations Ireland has worked with John to create a “carefully-crafted, eclectic tour,” with exquisite accommodations, including stays at a castle and a boutique 5-star hotel, and unique options throughout in three main areas of interest. John is pleased to return home to lead the trip and share some of his favorite places. He says, “there will be something for everyone: opportunities for local, artisanal foods, horse riding in stunning settings at one’s own comfort level, and chances to leave the tourist crowds and enjoy the beauty of many award-winning garden scapes.
If some in the group opt out of riding, there will be other exciting choices.” Having spent several years in New York City and currently living in Los Angeles, John is no stranger to the urbane, and he looks forward to seeking out some sophisticated fun with his group of travelers, as well. The pace is designed to be relaxing yet entertaining, with stunning excursions daily and two nights in each fabulous location. On this journey, participants will experience a deep connection to the land and culture of Ireland, with the help of John’s expertise, and they will depart with memories which will not soon be forgotten.
