Ireland Trip Presentation at Athens State

March 19, 2013

Athens, ALA. – Athens State University’s Alumni Association is hosting a trip presentation on the upcoming trip to Ireland. The presentation will be on Monday, April 8, 2013 at 6:00 p.m. in the Learning Commons of the Library. Jack Brinson with Collette Vacations will be on hand to show highlights of the trip and answer questions for our travel to Ireland’s Coastal Treasures- November 7-15, 2013. If you are traveling with us or thinking about traveling, please join us for the presentation. Refreshments will be served.

The travel program, open to anyone – not just Athens State alumni, introduces you to another side of the Emerald Isle. Visit rollicking Dublin, historical Limerick, charming Kinsale, and Galway, “the City of Tribes.” Tour the Old Midleton Distillery and learn how Irish whiskey is made. Discover Ireland’s ‘wild west’ region of Connemara. Cruise Killary Harbour, the only natural fjord in Ireland. Visit the Irish National Stud to see majestic thoroughbreds. Learn about daily life with a visit to an Irish farm. Step aboard the Jeanie Johnston, a recreated “famine ship.” Travel to Kylemore Abbey, home to Ireland’s oldest community of Benedictine nuns. Explore Ireland’s history at the ancient monastic site of Clonmacnoise and at the Cobh Heritage Centre. Toast it all with a drink in Europe’s official ‘oldest pub!’

Included in the price of the trip are airfare from Huntsville, hotel, hotel transfers and 11 meals (7 breakfasts and 4 dinners). Rates range from $2,919 for triple occupancy accommodations to $3,249 per person for single occupancy.
