The Normandy of Ireland Tour.
This tour is themed around the 800 year long history of the English conquest and colonisation of Ireland. With most Irish people speaking English today and the majority having at least some English ancestry mixed with their Gaelic ancestry this tour aims to help you to understand how it is possible to be both proud Irish and proud of the English elements of your heritage.
Traveling south of Dublin we travel though the area that were most strongly colonised by Norman Knights in the 12th century. We visit the ancient medieval city of Kilkenny Ireland’s best preserved medieval city with its great palace / fortress of Kilkenny Castle.
Learn about the evolution of the English language in Ireland and the long history of the English influence in Ireland.
