Discover Ireland with Leland Conway

From history-filled Dublin to the rolling green hills and dramatic coast, immerse yourself in Ireland’s charms on a journey through the Emerald Isle.

Kiss the Blarney Stone at historic Blarney Castle, explore Killarney from an Irish jaunting car, and marvel at the world-famous beauty of the Ring of Kerry. Stand in awe at the top of the stunning 700-foot Cliffs of Moher and experience the luxury of an overnight stay on the grounds of a castle.

A vibrant blend of captivating culture and stunning nature, this is the Ireland you’ve always imagined.

Leland Conway was born in Kentucky and raised in Arizona; he is the son of missionary parents on the Tohono O’odham Indian Nation where his dad still serves today. Conway, who is currently host of Conway and Larson on News Radio 600 KOGO in San Diego, began working in sports radio but quickly gravitated to talk radio where he powered Lexington’s 630 WLAP to a market competitor with his unique brand of libertarian talk and leadership. Leland then went to Richmond, Virginia’s heritage talker 1140WRVA where he hosted an afternoon drive before going to Louisville, Kentucky’s powerhouse 840WHAS. He’s also done stints in other markets like Atlanta, GA (WGST) as well as regular fill-in appearances on KOA and KHOW in Denver, CO, and KFYI in Phoenix, AZ. Leland has also appeared as a guest multiple times on FOX News.
