Join us for a one week knitting retreat in Ireland!
May brooks and trees and singing hills
Join in the chorus, too.
And every gentle wind that blows
Send happiness to you.
From quiet restoration at a five-star spa resort to boisterous laughter over dinner with new friends, our “Ireland as Inspiration” Knitting Retreat Tour awakes your true spirit. Whether you’re embarking on this adventure on your own or with a few of your closest friends, we strive to make your journey in Ireland one you’ll never forget.
For those who want to revitalize their mind and spirit, you’ll find solace and energy. For those who want to connect with other women who create and appreciate the fiber arts, you’ll find new friends.
Commune with nature, experience a culture steeped in tradition and mystique, immerse yourself in the beauty that Ireland has to offer. Surround yourself with like-minded women, inspiring you to live a more empowered life.
Imagine waking up each morning to breathtaking scenery outside your window at the award-winning Dunloe, a stunning 5-star resort hotel . A light mist saunters across the lawn, beckoning you to explore the landscape it veils.
But first the delicious smells of an Irish breakfast entice you to the breakfast room; eggs, bangers, fish, fruit, and pastries await. A most enjoyable way to fortify yourself for a day of exploring Ireland’s Wild Atlantic Way.
You board the tour bus with new-found friends, greeting each other with warm smiles and cheerful hellos. Your handwork project at your side, awaiting attention as you day trip to your destination, be it a quaint Irish town, the studio of a fiber artist, or an ancient ruin.
From rolling green pastures to water-etched stone cliffs, Ireland’s landscape is breathtaking. The sky of the Emerald Isle enchants one with its dramatic display of color and movement. For those inspired by nature, you won’t be disappointed.
You’ll greet the other side of the Atlantic Ocean and walk paths created centuries ago. You’ll breathe in deeply the clean cool air and ground yourself to an ancient earth.
From the sun rising on sparkling waters to night gently tiptoeing across the wee hours, Ireland beckons. She taunts you to succumb to her leisurely and relaxed ways, shedding your burdens. For those looking to unwind and relax, you’ll find solace.
You’ll witness amazing sunrises, where the sun bursts forth from the crest of a distant hill, welcoming a new day. You’ll lavish the spectacular sunsets, where the sun lingers on the horizon much later than you’d expect, unwilling to leave Ireland enveloped in light.
On days that are overcast or rainy, you’ll see Ireland from a different perspective; it will bring new light to things you may have missed and will help you fully experience this beautiful island.
From monolithic stones placed in the Bronze Age to quaint villages embracing modern comforts, Ireland merges the old with the new. Her juxtaposition of the ancient and the modern begs one to reconsider time. For those who desire going back in time, you’ll be transported.
Knitters and crocheters will be enthralled by Celtic knots and symbols of long ago.
You’ll wander around ancient stone circles, perplexed by their meaning and construction. You’ll revel in the superlative amenities of award-winning The Dunloe hotel.
From the storefronts along cobblestoned streets to many shades of green pastures, Ireland blazes with color. Her quaint towns strive for unprecedented palettes to contrast her natural emerald shades. For those afraid too many colors are unsettling, you’ll be pleasantly surprised at the beauty it offers.
Yarn and fabric dyers will be inspired at the natural and man-made palettes that abound. Anyone who appreciates beauty will be touched deeply in her soul by the magic and wonder that is Ireland.
You’ll walk cobblestoned streets of old villages alive with color, music, and friendly Irish folk. You’ll savor amazing foods rich with flavors from the land and sea.
Join us for a relaxing week as we explore the culture and beauty of Ireland. We greet you at Shannon Airport, and then transport you to our award-winning host hotel, the Dunloe. During the week we’ll take short day trips to local villages, ancient ruins, and to see the awe-inspiring coastlines of Ireland’s southwest shores. You’ll have one day to yourself, where you can partake of the spa amenities of the hotel, arrange an adventure of your own, or simply relax and drink in the majesty of this enchanted isle. We like to keep our tour group to a manageable size where everyone has a chance to get to know the others.
