Come and witness a Peter’s Way Tour to Ireland! We will meet with local musicians and clergy while we enjoy sightseeing and fellowship with our colleagues. For those bringing their choir or parish to Ireland, this program is invaluable in planning your tour. You will inspect various liturgical and performance venues, hotels, and our detailed services throughout the Emerald Isle.
The land-only package is complimentary for qualifying music directors and clergy leaders. The price of your airfare will be fully refunded to you when you return overseas with your choir or parish using Peter’s Way Tours. If you are unable to travel over these dates, we are happy to arrange for potential group leaders to join a Peter’s Way group traveling to the same destination(s), subject to availability.
