Dublin & Ireland:
For many Americans with Irish ancestry, a trip to Ireland is like a trip to their homeland. For others, visiting the dynamic sites of Ireland and learning about the dramatic history and rich culture of the island peaks their interests. Among Ireland’s lush, green hills are ancient castles, hearty meals, and some of the friendliest locals. Ireland has a memorable variety of castles because of the country's history with England. When England came to forcibly settle Ireland, they built castles to protect the British citizens from Irish natives. As a result, many of the castles in Ireland were built by England. In retaliation, the Irishmen constructed their own castles to better fight against the British invaders, thus bringing more castles to their country. An adventure of Ireland will bring you closer to this fascinating Irish history and famous sites such as St. Patrick’s Cathedral, the Cliffs of Moher, the Belfast Castle, and the Blarney Stone at Blarney Caste. Experience the haunting, beautiful landscapes, the inspiring history, and the lively capital of Ireland, Dublin, on a cultural tour of Ireland.

The highlands are some of the most beautiful areas of Scotland with an abundance of National Parks rich with untouched wilderness. The British Isle's highest summit, Ben Nevis, is located deep in the Scottish highlands. Scotland has many castles that hearken back to the rich history of the nation including the Edinburgh Castle, the Eilean Donan Castle, the Stirling Castle, and more.
