June 17, 2012 – June 27, 2012 11 days—10 nights
We’re now taking reservations for this great tour that you’ve been asking about for years.
We’ll start our tour by traveling to Chicago in preparation for our flight to Dublin, Ireland. We will fly from
Chicago for several reasons; (1) We can get a direct flight from Chicago to Dublin, (2) The flight time is
shorter than if we flew from Nashville and we don’t have to change planes, and (3) the cost of the tickets are
less from Chicago, saving you money on your tour cost. We’ll travel on a luxury motorcoach throughout our
tour with comfortable seats and large picture windows. Our hotels will always be first class since we stay only
at Three & Four Star rated properties. And, you can book your reservation in confidence, because with our
optional Travel Protection Coverage, should you have to cancel for a covered illness or other covered family
emergency, you can get a full refund with no deductibles. More about this later.
