Pilgrimage Tours in Europe and Worldwide

We have been proudly organising pilgrimages for over 50 years to an extensive choice of religious destinations, including the world’s most famous Marian Shrines of Lourdes, Fatima and Medjugorje, the Holy Land, where in the 4th Century early pilgrims made the first sacred journeys to visit sites associated to the life of Jesus, and Rome, the centre of the Catholic faith. In addition to the most popular destinations, our comprehensive programme also gives devout pilgrims the opportunity to follow in the steps of the Apostles in Greece, Turkey, Cyprus and Malta, walk the route to the tomb of St. James in Santiago de Compostela or visit the most beautiful and spiritually charged Shrines of France, Italy and Central Europe in Poland, Germany and the Czech Republic.

As you make your journey led by a Spiritual Director, you understand the historical, cultural and religious context in which events occurred and learn about the charisma and spirituality of the saints, Christian martyrs and founders of our religious orders, making each one of our pilgrimages an experience of a lifetime.

We strongly believe that personal input is a vital component of a successful pilgrimage and as a family run, 100% Irish company, we remain committed to traditional customer service principles and continually strive to provide the best possible care of our clients. Our experienced pilgrimage consultants are available to discuss your needs and any specific travel requirements you may have.
