Celtic Invasion of Dingle 2019

I launched Celtic Invasion Vacations in 2009. Our second invasion took us to Dingle, Ireland. A small group of five invaders had a wonderful time in Dingle. Enough that we want to go back.

So for the 10th anniversary of Celtic Invasion Vacations, we're gonna take it up a notch. We will have a slightly larger group this year, up to 16 guests. We are already half-booked. So check out the early itinerary and let me know if you'd like to join us on this incredible adventure.

Also don't forget to check out our Celtic Invasion Vacations facebook group.

Friday. The trip doesn't officially start til Saturday, but I recommend that you arrive on Friday like I will. We'll get a good night's sleep in Cork, Ireland before driving to Dingle on Saturday. If you can't make it on Friday, please arrive before 9 am on Saturday.

Saturday. We will leave Cork around 10 am. Our first stop is Gougane Barra. There's a beautiful chapel in a relaxing valley. We'll have lunch and breathe Ireland in a little deeper. Then it's off to our cottage in Dingle. We'll stop to get some groceries on the way. I'll make my world famous pasta dinner. I will play a few songs . Then I will invite you can break out your own instruments for a wee bit o' music.

Sunday. In the morning we'll walk around and explore Dingle town. In the afternoon, I hope to get a local Irish musician to come in and teach us some tunes that we might bring to the local pub.


Tuesday. We'll visit Healy Pass and see some ruins.

Wednesday. It's time for the Celtic Invasion of Star Wars as we visit the island of Skellig Michael. A monastery was founded on this island sometime during the 6th to 8th century. Now it's a UNESCO World Heritage Island. We will drive to Portmagee to take a boat to Skellig Michael.

Thursday. We're gonna explore something a little different.

Friday. We're back in

Saturday. The Celtic Invasion comes to an end. Time to head home! We will drive back to Cork and depart. If you plan to leave Ireland on Saturday, please plan your Cork departure after 1 PM.
