The curated experience?

Welcome to Folk Ways Tours, your gateway for unique and unforgettable small group tours of Ireland and the UK. Here at Folk Ways we believe in travel at relaxed pace with time to “breathe in” a culture. That's why we lead our groups personally and keep our groups small (no more than 12!). Let us show you everything from famous "bucket-list" destinations to our favorite hidden gems. We complement our tours with a celebration of the arts, plotting routes that allow us to soak up the unique art, music, theater, and literature of our destinations. Most of all we promise we will never rush you away from a magnificent vista in a national park or a magnificent meal at the pub. We believe one shouldn't have to recover from their travels! Our goal is for our guests to return home buoyed by new experiences to remember for a life time.
