Ireland Here I COME!!!!
I'm so excited. . .next month I get to return to Ireland for a new tour and introduction of a product line by Sceptre Tours. Can hardly wait to get the itinerary in hand and start doing my research.
The last time I was there, we were in the southern part of Ireland, but due to flooding at the time, we could not visit several sites and even stay at the hotel in Cork that was on the original schedule. But no matter, whatever route we take, I will love being back in the "old country".
Sceptre Tours sends more people to Ireland than any of their competitors. They are very good at what they do and really take care of business.
Right now, I am working on a Spring Break trip to Ireland during Texas State's Spring Break. . . March 10-17. It would run one week and get you back home before classes resume on Monday. It includes round trip airfare from Austin to Dublin (from Chicago to Dublin and return) on the wonderful Airline, Aer Lingus, a four day tour of the south including the Ring of Kerry. It also includes a 2 night extension in Dublin.
Dublin is really a young city, the median age is 30. So it is where everyone should be to celebrate St. Patrick's Day in style. No matter that we have to come back on the "official" day, there are still celebrations all week long honoring the patron saint of Ireland.
I love that this tour would be a combination learning and then exploration tour with lots of free time to enjoy the sites of Dublin. The town was originally settled by Viking raiders. Today there are still Viking ruins and influences in the city. So it would be a painless history lesson.
To get you in the moooood to party, the pictures above are an exterior and an interior of the Red Fox Inn. I had the best Irish Coffee of my life while visiting here.
Please contact me asap. It takes at least 10 people for a group and more can lower the price for all. You can reach me at my office number 1-800-340-8050.
