The Arm Chair Travel Group will visit Ireland the night before St. Patrick’s Day.

Teaming up with his longtime Irish guiding sidekick, Stephen McPhilemy, Rick Steves is taking a virtual tour of the west and the north of the Emerald Isle — and you’re invited! For Ireland in the extreme, it’s gotta be the Gaelic-speaking regions of the west: Dingle, with its love of music and mysterious monastic enclaves; Galway, the Republic’s ruddy second city; and the windswept and remote Aran Islands.

Then, Stephen will share insights into the corner of Ireland where he grew up, Ulster, taking us into the north for an exploration of the newly vibrant city of Belfast and the always entertaining Antrim Coast. The more you understand Ireland, that enchanting island where strangers are just friends who’ve yet to meet, the more you’ll enjoy it. And with a delightful mug of Guinness, Rick and Stephen will make Ireland a friend, as well. Pour your own frothy stout and come along for the ride!
