Humorist Garrison Keillor once observed that people don’t travel to America to see freeways, air terminals, and skyscraper jungles. Astute cultural travelers visit to see everyday people engaged in everyday activities in everyday settings.
The goal at Rising Road Tours is to provide our guests the opportunity to experience a glimpse into everyday Irish and Scottish life.
Our accommodations include stays with farm families, in some instances up to five days, which affords us the flexibility to take field trips to local sites of interest, museums, historical monuments, traditional craft shops, and geographic wonders on our daily outings. We create a balance between walking in town, hiking the bogs, and visiting sites, or if you’d rather stay behind at the B&B and read or rest, that is an option too. Evenings are spent experiencing traditional music in local pubs.
Rising Road Tours goal is to make your visit a great cultural experience with flexibility to spend some of your trip time your way without all the hustle and bustle of minute-by-minute guided tours.
At Rising Road Tours, we specialize in creating escorted tours to meet your idea of a great vacation that includes places you’d like to visit, things you’d like to see, places you’d like to stay – a castle, a great house, a hotel or a B&B.
