Arrival and Start of Knitting Retreat Tour

Start your tour at Shannon Airport with a group bus transfer to your hotel in Killarney. Along the way we will travel through quaint Irish villages and towns, including Adare and Newcastle West. Upon arrival and check-in at the hotel, enjoy a restful day exploring the hotel grounds or relaxing at the pool. At the end of the day, enjoy a welcome reception with wine and light fare. During the remaining days of the retreat we will have plenty of time to spend together in our private fiber arts lounge in The Europe.

Testimonial: “I can’t think of a better way to see the wonderful sights of Killarney and County Kerry. The pace of the tour provided a very comfortable balance between well coordinated sightseeing tours and leisure time to explore the area on my own. The accommodations were truly 5 Star. I would recommend this trip to anyone.” Dave H., Tour Participant

There will also be several excursions to —

The Dingle Peninsula – great views of the Irish Sea as we drive around the Dingle Slea Head, and shopping in Dingle town The lovely and interesting town of Kenmare, home of the Kenmare Lace Museum, is a short bus ride from our hotel. The unique beauty and charm of the town has remained unchanged from its founding in 1670. It has received the Ireland Tidy Town Award for 2013 and has the title of Kerry’s first Heritage Town Award.

Testimonial: “I thought the Ireland experience was magical – everything about it. We had not been on an overseas trip in ten years. It felt nice to be really pampered. Taking that horse cart through what one of my Irish friends called “the mystical Gap of Dunloe” was in the “once in a lifetime” category. … Seeing the Ring of Kerry and the spectacular Dingle Peninsula gave me a glimpse into a lovely country that has even more to offer.” Jan S., Tour Participant

Kissane Sheep Farm – a real working sheep farm with sheep shearing and sheep dog herding demonstrations.
