Family Gathering -Ireland

Wild Atlantic Way

A six day Family Gathering

4 to 9 of August, 2024

We chose Ireland as the destination for the fifth and final month of our QC Caravan in 2024, and it’s easy to understand why. There’s nowhere we’ve been where the people carry this sense of curiosity, adventure, and just plain quirkyness. We’ve spent a lot of time in Ireland, much of it in the sea, much of it next to the fire and all of it smiling. The Irish are really like no-one else, and it’s impossible to separate them from the rich wildness of the landscape and of the stories and traditions that are under every stone and behind every moss-covered tree.

We’re returning this August to the Wild Atlantic Way for a selection of our favourite experiences and characters. There’s a sense of magic that runs along this rugged coastline, over the stone fences and in the blood of the people. There’s a cup of tea and a story around every corner, and we’ll spend six days soaking it all in.

Our trips are lightly scheduled. Plenty of freedom for you to explore, making your own way through these remarkable places and returning to the warmth of dinner and good wine with friends. Together, like family.


We’ll spend six days together, joined by a cast of local characters and experts. Some moments may include:

A session with a legendary storyteller, one of the last traditional seanchais in Ireland.

Natural plant-dying experience with one of Ireland’s most celebrated dyers.

We’ll dance to trad music and lift a pint or two.

A soak in a local seaweed bath.

A visit to the Aran islands.

Surf sessions with the local crew.

Special meals with folks growing and preparing the most beautiful food.

This trip is designed for a small group of families with children of any age.
