“We’re getting’ the band back together!”

With this quote from the legendary Blues Brothers, Irish radio superstars Jim “Skinny” Sheahan and Mike “Houli” Houlihan have announced their return to Ireland this October.

Hosts to many trips to Eire from 2013-2022, which involved hilarious hijinks (Skinny caught swiping a pillow from the Europa Hotel in Belfast which almost caused an international incident), and many epiphanies (Houli witnessing a miracle at Our Lady of Knock Shrine), the lads have agreed to go back one more time “before we croak.”

This could be the last opportunity to join Skinny & Houli in the Emerald Isle for your journey of a lifetime.

“We’re reaching out to all the folks who have gone with us in the past and can testify to the tomfoolery and camaraderie of these gentle excursions to the land of our ancestors. And we’re welcoming all newbies to the unforgettable experience of Ireland with us,” Houli said.

The tour is once again being handled by their friend Derry Cronin of Specialized Travel. The schedule is mighty, with four glorious days and nights in Killarney that are bookended by first and last nights in Dublin.

The group arrives on Sunday morning, Oct,. 20  in Dublin and spends the evening on the town.

The next day the tour heads to the Kingdom of County Kerry, where Killarney is the jewel in its crown. If you’ve ever wanted to explore the Ring of Kerry, this is THE place to begin. This lively County Kerry town has been a home to traditional Irish music and craic for centuries.

The Skinny & Houli tour includes four nights and days in Killarney, with day trips to the Ring of Kerry, Muckross House, Killarney National Park, the Dingle Peninsula and all the beauty along the Wild Atlantic Way.

You can enjoy this trip at your own pace and relax in the beauty of our ancestral home.

Then it’s back to Dublin for your final night blowout before returning home.

Houli sez, “We’re all getting older fer feck’s sake. So grab your ‘preview of heaven’ this October in case you ain’t going there after you croak!”
