FULL ITINERARY/REGISTRATION

Whether you are a fan of Star Wars, or just the isle of Ireland in general, this is the small escorted 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.

 

HIGHLIGHTS:

  • Private escort 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, plus 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 Dingle 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. 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 Dingle peninsula, we also stay at a seaside resort – Dingle Skellig Hotel. 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, listen to live music, and meet the locals.

Tara is taking a small group to Austria with fellow artist, educator and DreamTender Victoria Rabinowe. As members of the International Association for the Study of Dreams, Victoria and Tara will guide you through the symbolic territory that dreams represent. Both women know Vienna like the back of their hand, and are inspired by Austrian architect Hundertwasser, whose buildings are like dreamscapes in themselves. You will be exploring the world of dreams while you sleep at the Rogner Bad Blumau Spa (designed by the architect). We will also explore art in both Graz and Vienna as we discover more about our inner mindscape in the country where Freud himself was born.
