North and Western Ireland is the destination for ASGCLA’s 2019 literary tour. Planned for May 11-18, 2019, the seven night themed tour of North & Western Ireland focuses on some of the greatest writers to come from the region. These writers include W.B Yeats, Seamus Heaney, C. S Lewis and hundreds of others that are part of the collective culture of the Irish literary world. This fascinating tour will take you to the writer’s birthplaces, schools, writing rooms and final homes. History and epic scenery will be taken in each day to delight and wonder the visitor to this ancient and wildly beautiful country.
This trip replaces the previously announced trip to England. The destination changed because of pricing fluctuations due to spring 2019 Brexit. The North and Western Ireland tour includes different cities, literary figures and scenic views than the 2018 Ireland trip.
