Martin Randall Travel

Imagine touring Ireland accompanied by an Irish archaeologist! Imagine visiting prehistoric and historical sites, early christian sites, museums and historical houses; traversing the unspoilt landscape of the west coast and coming to an understanding of the history of this unique country and how it came to be the nation it is today. Educational tour operator Martin Randall Travel takes enquiring travellers to the heart of Ireland to learn of the first hunter-gatherers, of the arrival of the Vikings in 795 and the advent of Christianity; to learn of the shattering famine and the history of the Gaelic world. Don't learn from a book at home, get site specific and up close and personal with Martin Randall Travel and the history of Ireland.
