2013 marks The Year of The Gathering — a yearlong celebration of all things Irish – its people, its unique culture, heritage and rich history! It’s a year during which the people of Ireland are throwing open their arms and inviting anyone who feels a connection to Ireland to come and visit. And, it presents a unique opportunity for our travel agent partners to promote group travel to Ireland.
Our group specialists and RSM’s are ready, willing and eager to assist in creating and promoting your “Gathering Group” to Ireland. Group ideas include: Family reunions/Geneology searches, Groups with a shared love of music, sports (think golf!), literature; affinity, alumni, college and high school groups, Irish-American Heritage Groups, Girlfriend Getaways, and so many more.
Many of our scheduled 2013 Ireland tours include a unique Gathering component, from lunch in a private home with a local expert on W.B. Yeats in Sligo as part of the Castle & Manors tour to a Bodhran (Irish Drum) lesson for every member of the tour in one of Ireland’s oldest pubs on the Enchanting Emerald Isle tour. Of course, we also offer the Make it Your Own option. Just provide us with the specifications your group clients desire and our experts will create a unique vacation fully customized for your clients!
