Ireland Tours

It is with a heavy heart that FFC Historical Tours has decided to cancel its summer 2021 international tours.   Because of the continuing issues with Covid and international travel, it has become apparent that the prudent decision would be to push off our Ireland and France tours to 2022.  We still are offering all of our day tours in Maryland (Monocacy, Antietam and Ellicott City walking tours) all of which are outdoors, practice social distancing, have contactless payment, and require masks.  We look forward to providing local tours this year and hope to deliver quality experiences for customers abroad in 2022.

Explore the Emerald Isle and take in the sights, from ancient to modern. Our home base will be the town Athlone, located in the heart of the island. From there we will then venture to every corner of Ireland, including the Cliffs of Moher, Limerick, Dublin and Galway.

One of the best experiences in my life was my trip to Ireland led by Fred Campbell. I cannot speak highly enough of the experience that I had. All the locations we went to were great and Fred Campbell was extremely knowledgeable about everything, history, food, and best places to go. It made me appreciate Ireland far more than if I had gone on my own, and it gave me a greater respect for their culture and history.” -Lauren C.
