No. Though many travelers are.
No, though what we’re going to see might make more sense if you have been formed as a Catholic.
Basically, it’s an insider’s tour. In addition to seeing the beauties of Ireland, you will meet and hang out with Irish people who take their Faith seriously. You will assist at Latin Masses in parishes and Orders. And you will travel with other people your age, who also take their Faith seriously.

Yes, weather permitting, we will climb this large hill outside Westport, where St Patrick is reputed to have spent 40 days and nights preparing for his mission to the Irish. If you choose not to, you can warm yourself by the peat fire at the bottom of the hill and have tea and scones.
You have a choice of sharing a room or not. Obviously, if you share with a friend, we can accommodate you both. If you don’t have a friend to accompany you, let us know and we will assign someone of the same sex to share with you, if we can. Single rooms are available, too.
A shared room package will cost US$2100. A single room package will cost US$2900. Neither includes airfare.
Transportation around Ireland, overnight accommodations, breakfast and dinner, entrance fees and charitable contributions to Catholic Orders. Basically everything except lunch, drinking and spending money.
