The Luminaire is a community of curious minds dedicated to reimagining travel for a new generation. We strive to create journeys around the world of depth and enlightenment, each individually crafted to cultivate the interests of our guests.
SEEKING A DIVERSITY OF KNOWLEDGE
We believe in the power of travel to nurture personal growth. Our goal is to identify and build upon the interests of our guests, while igniting newfound passions along the way. Through visceral learning, our journeys endeavour to cultivate a deeper, more profound connection with the world, and spark a desire to protect it.
TRAVELLING IN GOOD COMPANY
Each journey we embark upon is enhanced by the knowledge and experience of extraordinary people. The Luminaire’s Guild of experts represent some of the world’s foremost thinkers across many disciplines, from world-leading archaeologists to record-breaking polar explorers. Travelling in their esteemed company, our guests discover the planet’s most intriguing stories, revealed by those who tell them best.
STRIVING FOR A SUSTAINABLE FUTURE
We believe that a deeper connection to the world fosters a natural desire to protect it. Our guests depart as enthusiasts and return as ambassadors, inspired to harness the power of their experiences for the greater good. To this end, we have established The Luminaire Foundation. Through founding pillars of natural conservation, cultural preservation and education, we aim to help safeguard the sustainable future of the places, people and cultures we explore.
'The Luminaire were perfect partners to coordinate our first return to Ireland for many years. A beautiful, characterful hotel and visits that truly got under the surface of the historic places we visited – and the people who look after them – were hallmarks of a wonderful trip.’
