AICF Pre-Conference Tour

October 17-24
8 Days, 7 Nights
Clare | Mayo | Donegal | Galway
 

Join us for an 8 day-spectacular tour of the Wild Atlantic Way, visiting unique cultural and historical sites and breathtaking landscapes. We endeavored to find experiences that are beyond the usual. That includes some off the typical path, some on the path, and some more unique. We have filled the days with cultural and historical experiences amid beautiful surroundings. Music will be a key part of the tour, whether visiting recognized musical venues or having local groups perform.

Please note that spaces are limited, so we are asking that at least one person per room be a participant in the AICF Conference. Because of the nature of the tour, it is aimed at adults.
