Welcome to Carpe Diem Tours
Carpe Diem Tours is a unique tour company specialising in cultural tours and pilgrimages since 2007. We cater for the tourist who wants to get behind the scenes when they visit a destination, meet local people, and experience the local culture. Some of our local tours visit Irish speaking or Gaeltacht areas. Beidh seans agat Gaeilge a chlos is a labhairt más mian leat.
'Tell me what is it you plan to do with your one wild and precious life?'

Booking is now open for our trip of a lifetime to the Holy Land which will take place 29th August to 8th September, 2023. See our pilgrimage page for details.
It was not possible to organise a satisfactory tour to the Balkans this year. Instead we are heading to the southern Mediterranean and two islands near the Toe of Italy, MALTA and SICILY. This tour takes place 12 - 22 October 2023, and booking is now open.
We also look forward to returning to our annual pilgrimage to Skelling Michael, Co. Kerry in late May 2023, weather and the OPW, who oversee this UNESCO Heritage site, permitting.
Our weekend tour to the majestic Dingle Peninsula including a trip to visit An Blascaod Mór will also take place in July 2023. We hope to announce the scheduled tour dates as soon as possible to this magnificent Irish-speaking part of Ireland.
We at Carpe Diem Tours look forward to the months ahead, when we can once again gather and enjoy diverse cultural experiences together; laughing, praying, singing and reflecting on the strange and unprecedented times we have all experienced over the past few years.
