small is beautiful

Large group travel with a fixed itinerary suits many people; but not free and independent travellers. Increasingly, people are looking for personalised holidays in lesser known places, ‘far from the madding crowd’.

If you like to be free and independent as you travel you will want to organise your day around the things that interest you.  What interests you in the morning may change over lunch as you reflect on what you have just experienced.  A flexible approach that allows for spontaneity, as well as changes in the weather, is offered by Heaven & Connacht.

Heaven & Connacht organises personalised experiences for the short-term visitor.  We focus on individuals and couples but small groups can be catered for.  Tours relating to the historical, cultural, social and natural heritage of Roscommon, Sligo and Leitrim, as well as the wider Connacht and West of Ireland areas, are provided.  Experts in archaelogy and photography can also be available.  You can arrive by train, plane or car and you can use your own car or join your host in his car for a personalised tour which you have had an opportunity to discuss and decide on.  Lake boats, electric bikes, canoes and inland surfing can also be organised.

Heaven & Connacht activities are coordinated by Mervyn Taylor;  a qualified Fáilte Ireland ‘Approved Tour Guide of Ireland’ who lived for many years near Loch Cé at Boyle in Co. Roscommon; where Ireland’s Hidden Heartlands meet the Wild Atlantic Way.
