Whether you are a fan of Star Wars, or just the isle of Ireland in general, this is the small es**rted group tour for you! Each year, the beautiful village of Portmagee in County Kerry hosts a May the 4th Be With You Festival celebrating the global phenomenon of the film franchise that has engaged fans since 1977. Why Kerry? Because this is where the last few movies were made along the breathtaking Skellig Coast on the Wild Atlantic Way. In addition to attending the fun film activities at the May the 4th festival, our tour will also feature the best Ireland has to offer in terms of unsurpassed hospitality in 5-Star luxury accommodations, jaw-dropping scenery along the coast, gourmet cuisine, and live traditional music better than any cantina band this side of Tatooine.
Singer-songwriter and author Tara O’Grady will be your guide on this galactic journey of the south of Ireland. As a former teacher of film studies, she has curated an exciting adventure for all you cinephiles and historians alike. Expect a true balance of art, nature, culture and cuisine as you explore Ireland with one of her talented and inspiring native daughters.
• Private es**rt on a small coach bus where you’ll be “lifted and landed, wined and dined.” Not once will you have to carry your luggage from the moment we arrive at the airport.
• Full Irish Breakfast included daily, including five sumptuous dinners.
• Backstage tour of the Siamsa Tire National Folk Theatre in Tralee where we will meet local artists and experience a private traditional Irish music performance in a ring fort.
• Explore the Di**le peninsula with local filmmaker Maurice Galway who will show us the exact locations where the recent Star Wars films were made, including access to the famous Beehive huts where the Jedi Luke Skywalker was hiding.
• Access to the Sci-Fi Film Festival and the many scheduled events during the May the 4th Be With You Fest, including the unveiling of a new Luke Skywalker statue (organizers say we should expect a surprise guest to attend…)
• Castle accommodations – We begin the tour at the luxurious Ballyseede Castle in Tralee, and end the tour at the 5-star Dromolond Castle in Clare where we will experience hunting with hawks at their School of Falconry. If you’ve never had a bird of prey land on your forearm, this will be a thrilling activity to add to your bucket list!
• Seaside Resorts – During the festival, we are staying in Waterville at the Butler Arms Hotel, a seaside resort where Charlie Chaplin stayed every summer for ten years of his life. The actor said it was his favorite place in the world, that’s why they have a statue of him on the property, and the resort hosts a film fest of his movies each August. On the Di**le peninsula, we also stay at a seaside resort - Di**le Skellig. So be prepared to have your breath taken away as you wake each morning.
• Free time to sleep late, wander through castle gardens, schedule a spa treatment, play a round of golf, take long walks on the beach, lunch in quaint towns, shop for Irish wool sweaters, visit local pubs, drink Guinness, listen to live music, and meet the locals, including a Jedi or two.

You'll be charged to visit Europe from 2023
It's finally here: the end of fee-free travel to the European Union.
The EU has announced the launch of its long-awaited visa waiver scheme, ETIAS, to debut in May 2023.
While ETIAS is not the same as a visa -- it is quicker, done online, and requires no biometric information -- there is still a procedure and a cost to acquiring it, rather like the United States' scheme, ESTA.
You'll be charged to visit Europe from 2023 The EU will introduce the ETIAS visa waiver authorization program in May 2023. The authorization, which is not a visa, will cost €7 and will be valid for three years.
