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 others to know.
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.
