An Irish Sojourn: Lakes & Legends
Sept. 11-20, 2013
Join us for a convivial jaunt through the heart of Ireland, beginning at Athlone, where we will explore the lakes and legends of the Shannon region. The stunning scenery, rich history, and nightly traditional Irish music sessions will warm your heart and soul.
We’ll stay at comfortable, family-run hotels enjoying bountiful Irish breakfasts and delicious dinners of locally grown fare. In between, we’ll immerse ourselves in Ireland’s natural beauty — its mountains, waterfalls, and lakes. Every mile along the way, 89.7 WGBH’s A Celtic Sojourn host Brian O’Donovan and legendary singer/songwriter Robbie O’Connell will share their knowledge of the finest sights, sounds, and tastes of their native land. Best of all, we’ll be steeped in the traditional music of Ireland. Robbie and Brian will discuss Celtic music, its instruments and its players, and introduce us to their favorite tunes.
