Once upon a time, far away across the ocean, two young mothers had a dream to introduce children to wonderful stories from all over the world.
Inspired by their personal travels, and with a passion to make a difference, they began a little home-based business creating beautiful books to delight and inspire the children in their lives. And so Barefoot Books was born.
Now, 25 years on, we’re taking the trip of a lifetime — back to Europe, back to music and dance and folklore — back to where it all began. This fall, we’re traveling to Dublin, Ireland, to immerse ourselves in the magic and wonder of Celtic culture. And we want YOU to join us!
Whether you’ve never been to Europe or your passport’s pages are full, the Barefoot Books 25th-anniversary Escape to the Emerald Isle trip will be a once-in-a-lifetime experience you do not want to miss!
What's in store for you when you Escape to the Emerald Isle with Barefoot Books? An adventure like none other!
You’ll steep yourself in:
The very best of Dublin’s iconic literary and historic sights, including the city’s 800-year-old limestone castle; the Moore Street market’s charming vendors and terraced houses; Trinity College’s soaring Gothic spires; the swanky Temple Bar neighborhood; the luxurious Georgian neighborhoods’ delicious red-brick architecture; and more!
The authentic Irish cultural experience, complete with gourmet meals and hearty pub food, Guinness beer, live foot-tappin’ music and unforgettable oral storytelling
The unique Barefoot legacy of sharing rich folktales from around the world — perhaps with special guest appearances by Barefoot artists and storytellers!
It's easier than you think! Just share our diverse, inspiring books with the kids in your community and beyond. Become a Barefoot Ambassador, and you'll discover how simple it is to follow your dreams — and make a difference every day!
