Tours from the US Mid West to Ireland

We are delighted to have twinned with the County Clare Irish Inn & Pub in Milwaukee, Wisconsin through their Harp & Eagle Tours to Ireland division. Flights are from O'Hare Airport Chicago direct to Ireland and the Old Ground Hotel is located only 20 mins from Shannon Airport. United Airlines are running flights from Chicago to Shannon and US Airways are running flights from Philadelphia to Shannon.

This is a highly recommended tour for anyone in the US Mid-West, especially from Wisconsin and Illinois. Harp and Eagle Tours operate a popular tour every month to County Clare, Ireland and there is great value available for off season dates.

No lifetime of travel is complete without a sojourn to Ireland. Join us for this all-encompassing experience at an extraordinary value away from the crowds in the traditional music capital of Ireland.


The Old Ground Hotel in the heart of Ennis is a  Manor House which dates back to the 18th century. Its magnificent ivy clad exterior retains the splendor of a by-gone era with all the conveniences of a modern hotel inside.
