Barton & Barton Travel Consultants

Experienced and well-traveled we offer travel opportunities especially in Italy and Ireland through our connections with established companies and owners.

Our knowledge of the joys of travel began many years ago but since 1994 we have been able to give that joy to others through our connections to INVITATION TO TUSCANY and WESTCOVE LETTINGS. Each year we have visited Italy and Ireland gaining knowledge and experience that we share with our clients, who we value beyond words.

Invitation to Tuscany Ltd

We keep adding wonderful properties ...take a look and call me

Delighted that Casetta, one of our recent additions, is in the "i"'s round-up:

23. Umbrian hideaway Nothing quite sums up summer like the rolling countryside of central Italy. But Umbria is less crowded than Tuscany at this time of year. Invitation to Tuscany has recently introduced Casetta, an adorable, wisteria-draped cottage sleeping two in a restored hamlet not far from the historic town of Perugia. Set in tranquil, wooded landscape a short drive from Umbertide, it overlooks a pool shared with other properties on the estate and is available for seven nights’ self-catering from 22 June for £1,036.

Hidden away in the southwest corner of Ireland, the Ring of Kerry is a true treasure trove.


Wild Atlantic Way

More from the skelligs

It’s 3 weeks until the release of Star Wars: The Last Jedi, and excitement is building over seeing our own Wild Atlantic Way light up the screen once again. To celebrate, Lego have just released an “Ahch-To Island" Training Set, featuring Skellig Michael’s monastic beehive huts and character figures. May the bricks be with you! Be inspired by the real Skellig Island here:

Tonights Western Sky @ Wild Derrynane
One of the few clear nights we've had over the past number of months. I went out tonight to begin the process of putting names on constellations and visible stars.

For anyone interested in observing our Kerry International Dark sky why not take a mini holiday here in Caherdaniel. Derrynane is one of the darkest areas in the entire reserve. We'll be delighted to guide you and show you some of the amazing constellations and visible stars and you'll even see the light on Skellig Michael. Enquire here
