Escorted Journey in the Footsteps of Irish Saints & Scholars | Joe Walsh Tours

Escorted Journey in the Footsteps of Irish Saints & Scholars

As Christianity spread across Ireland, many monasteries were built throughout the country. The buildings became centres of learning and skills of arts and crafts developed. This Golden Age of the “Island of Saints and Scholars” has left traces all over Ireland which can be seen in the many historic locations that we will visit on this tour.

While walking in the footsteps of Saint Patrick, exploring abbeys and monasteries and visiting important medieval sites, you will get to experience an authentic Ireland and see the fascinating aspects of Irish culture and heritage that have been so carefully preserved. Embrace this combination of a pilgrimage and leisure tour and get inspired by the ancient heritage of early Irish Christianity.
