Far Reaches of Europe & Father Ted

Lying off the west coast of Ireland is a group of three Islands, known as the Aran Islands, made famous in the UK by the hit comedy series Father Ted, in which a questionable parish priest sets up to serve the island community. We explore some of the film locations on a humorous guided tour around County Clare on the mainland, with selfie opportunity at the Parochial House and refreshments - you cannot refuse a cup of tea, of course! Seek out the ‘caves’ in The Burren Global Geopark and a particular highlight of the tour is a remote two-night island stay. Experience out-of-this-world limestone landscapes, a cliff edge UNESCO stone fort and the true island hospitality at a shindig in the local pub, which just happens to have Father Ted’s caravan out the back!
