A brief background…
Con Moriarty’s Hidden Ireland Tours began back in 1986 when Marion “Binky” Oswalt from the US and Con Moriarty from Ireland founded a travel company aimed at providing a limited number of travellers each year with an opportunity to experience the incredible environment in which Con grew up and to which he shared a powerful connection. The simple origin of the concept arose out of Binky’s own experience in Ireland, something she wished to share with others.
From its outset that experience was found to be a great deal of fun for those who came to know a hidden Ireland that seemed to leave an indelible glow in the heart of the open souls who came to share this special land in the company of those with a deep love and connection to this space. Guests played and laughed and learned before returning home as friends, with many returning again and again and whispering of this hidden Ireland to others.
Enduring friendships have been a special blessing throughout this time that has seen the company grow just a little, guided by its founding vision and limited by the simple fact that the hidden, authentic aspects of Ireland are a gift never to be developed beyond their capacity.

2021; cautiously optimistic and dreaming again…
As we prepare to bid farewell to 2020 and look forward with optimism to a new year, we do so against the backdrop of wonderful news that a number of virus vaccines are coming on-stream soon; the result of an extraordinary global effort that is bringing light to the end of this dark tunnel. Across the world, scientists are excited – and so are we, as we dream again of a post-Covid time – and of travel again!
Hidden Ireland Tours is made up of a team of eclectic individuals bound together by a shared passion for sharing their Ireland with special guests, something we are once again allowing ourselves to dream of after a year or enforced stoppage. Raring to go, the year ahead will be our 35th in business, We wish it to be one full of magical experiences, of celebration and gratitude.
If you and your family or friends have ever considered visiting this incredible land and 2021 or even 2022 beckons you in this direction, reach out to us! For now however, thank you and stay safe

By Seamus Heaney


And some time make the time to drive out west
Into County Clare, along the Flaggy Shore,
In September or October, when the wind
And the light are working off each other
So that the ocean on one side is wild
With foam and glitter, and inland among stones
The surface of a slate-grey lake is lit
By the earthed lightning of a flock of swans,
Their feathers roughed and ruffling, white on white,
Their fully grown headstrong-looking heads
Tucked or cresting or busy underwater.
Useless to think you’ll park and capture it
More thoroughly.
You are neither here nor there,
A hurry through which known and strange things pass
As big soft buffetings come at the car sideways
And catch the heart off guard and blow it open.
