Adventure Canada Returns to Emerald Isle in 2019

After 7 years of waiting, from June 9 – June 20, 2019 guests can visit Tory Island, the Cliffs of Moher, Belfast, and plenty other destinations in between with the return of the Ireland Circumnavigation.

Adventure Canada’s globe-trotting guests have learned the only way to truly experience an island nation is to circumnavigate it by small cruise ship. Past and future Adventure Canada explorers are celebrating the recent announcement of the return of the Ireland Circumnavigation for the first time since 2012.

The 31-year old family-owned expedition cruise line specializes in small ship expeditions to the Arctic, Greenland, Canada’s east coast, and select European destinations. Their return to the Emerald Isle will combine everything that sets Adventure Canada apart, including its celebration of the characters, cultures and unique experiences found in the destinations they visit.

The Ireland Circumnavigation begins in Dublin on June 9, 2019, where guests will board Adventure Canada’s 198 passenger ship, Ocean Endeavour. They will sail around Ireland and experience its friendly folk, rolling countryside, charming villages, and rugged seascapes. Expedition highlights include sailing past the picturesque Skellig Islands (featured in the Star Wars film, The Last Jedi), exploring the beautiful Dingle Peninsula, visiting the mysterious and unique Giant’s Causeway and the huge Rock of Cashel – an extensive historic site featuring Celtic art and medieval architecture.

The expedition will also include the beautiful Ring of Kerry, as well as castles, cathedrals, national parks, Irish pubs, vibrant cities and villages, and the dramatic Cliffs of Moher – which are up to 200 metres tall and featured in the classic film, The Princess Bride. Guests will get to visit Tory Island – a personal favourite for Adventure Canada's CEO, Cedar Swan – a remote island inhabited by a small Gaelic community made up of fewer than 200 people with their own king.

From June 9 – 20, 2019, the 12-day Ireland Circumnavigation starts at $5,995 USD per person. The expedition begins and ends in Dublin, Ireland.
