Celtic Horizon Tours

Celtic Horizon Tours is family-run business located in Maynooth Co Kildare.

Established in 1998 Celtic Horizon Tours specialises in group tours to Ireland from North America, Canada, Mexico and Europe.

With over 16 years experience in bringing groups of all sizes to Ireland from marching bands and choirs to special interest tours from Universities and schools. 

A niche market that Celtic Horizon Tours successful cater to is Motorcycle Tours of Ireland.

What better way to tour the highways and bye-ways of Ireland than on a motor bike.

Celtic Horizon Tours ensure that every client coming to Ireland has time on their itinerary to meet and greet with the locals be it an event with a local band a school Irish Dancing Group or choir.

We find our customers who form this bond with Ireland and its people return on tour time and again.

The Millicent Singers

The Millicent Singers are fast becoming one of the best known & most highly respected choirs in Ireland. The past two years have seen the choir achieve five first-place finishes & two second-place finished in National & International Choral Festivals. There are few choirs in Ireland that can match the success that The Millicent Singers have enjoyed of late, all of which is under the direction of their musical director Alan Kelly, voice-coach Tony Norton, & drama facilitator Emma Coogan.

Kildare County Council's Arts Office have also provided key funding to the choir over the past two years, which has allowed the choir to work with leading professionals in developing technique. An invitation to perform with Celine Byrne on RTE TV last June & an invitation to perform in the National Concert Hall in August have also come the way of the choir in recent months.

The choir comprises 38 members at present who come from Clane, Prosperous, Naas & surrounding areas.
