Women-only Small Group Tour to the Wild West of Ireland: In Search of the Celtic Queen Granuaile with special guest author Anne Chambers. This epic journey to Ireland is based on the life of Grace O’Malley (Granuaile), a 16th century Irish pirate queen. This extraordinary Celtic woman commanded a fleet of 200 fighting men, and won castles by war and love. The trip is not a history tour per se, but history and local lore are woven into the tour itinerary providing a focus for our journey.
