Tours & Retreats for Women

Handcrafted tours and experiences designed by our Celtic Experts

In our Celtic world when we say Céad Míle Fáilte, every one of those one hundred thousand
welcomes means something. To me, they mean you have come home, both spiritually and physically to this special place to feel that intense sense of belonging in the warmth of our people.

For women seeking not only to explore the ancient beauty of our Celtic heritage but also to forge connections and share in the richness of our culture, these lands hold a special promise. It’s an invitation to feel an intense sense of belonging and to become part of a narrative woven by our storytellers.

Our storytellers are here ready to ensure your experiences are constantly enriched by the connections to this place. It’s a promise to take you personally, putting your sense of wonder and wellbeing at the heart of everything that my gifted team and I do.

With more than 40 years’ experience creating deep friendships within our travel community, I’ve hand-selected the finest accommodations and best experiences for women to savor during their visit.

No one knows Ireland and Scotland quite like us. I truly believe there comes a time when a trip to these magical lands – where tears are met with laughter, faeries with faith and dreams with hope simply cannot be put off another day.
