Registration is open for the April 2016 Brian Boru Trail Tour to Ireland sponsored by the O’Brien Clan Foundation.

Brian Boru was the founder of the O’Brien Dynasty and the High King of Ireland from 1002 to 1014. The O’Brien Dynasty was a noble house that ruled the kingdoms of Munster and Thomond for centuries. Today, the O’Brien Clan is led by Chief Conor O’Brien, a direct descendant of Boru. All those who attend the pilgrimage will be able to meet Chief O’Brien as part of the Brian Boru Trail Tour.

The event-filled 10-day pilgrimage to Ireland has been organized by the O’Brien Clan. The Brian Boru Trail Tour guests will explore the many picturesque, history-soaked areas of Ireland while staying in a selection of top-quality hotels.

The tour will include sightseeing in places of historical and cultural significance to the O’Briens, including the Cliffs of Moher, Kylemore Abbey, the Aran Islands, the O’Brien Tower and the Rock of Cashel where Brian Boru was crowned King of Munster in 978. Ample time has also been set aside for independent sightseeing, shopping and relaxation during the trip.

At the conclusion of each day’s activities, tour guests will be able to relax and unwind in one of three hand-picked four-star hotels; the Park House in Galway; the Inn at Dromoland in Clare; or the Clontarf Castle Hotel in Dublin.
The O’Brien Clan Foundation was formed to focus on advancing the history of the O’Briens. In addition to organizing this annual tour, the Clan’s mission raises funds to provide scholarships for Irish students to Trinity College. The scholarships provide tuition and room and board financial support to those students in need.

The April 9-17, 2016 Brian Boru Trail Tour pricing includes all transfers, eight night’s accommodation, daily breakfast, and many of the fees associated with the tour’s planned excursions and meals.
