Carpe Diem Tours wishes to announce that our annual trip to the Holy Land has been postponed due to the Covid-19 pandemic. We will offer clarity on the rescheduled dates in due course.
We wish to advise that any decisions regarding our tours will be taken in accordance with official government guidelines as the safety of our pilgrims and cultural tourists is paramount.
Our annual pilgrimage to Skellig Michael, Co. Kerry can no longer take place during the summer. As we are currently living in uncertain times, we cannot yet confirm any dates. We remain hopeful that Carpe Diem Tours can visit this historical site at a later date in 2020.
Our weekend tour to the majestic Dingle Peninsula including a trip to visit An Blascaod Mór has also been postponed. We hope to announce the rescheduled tour dates as soon as possible.
We are delighted to announce that we remain hopeful that our 'Bring on the Balkans' tour will take place on the scheduled dates from the 19th - 29th October. We will continue to closely monitor the situation and provide updates regarding this tour.
'Ar scáth a chéile a mhaireann na daoine' is an old Irish saying meaning 'In the shadow of each other, people live'. In essence, we rely on one another for shelter; people need one another. We sometimes lose sight of this with the hustle and bustle of modern day life. In these times, this saying is eerily prescient as we witness great kindness and community spirit in our battle against Covid-19.
We at Carpe Diem Tours hope everyone is keeping safe and well in these very uncertain times. We look forward to brighter days when we can once again gather and enjoy diverse cultural experiences together; laughing, praying, singing and reflecting on these strange and difficult times.
