The Emerald Isle - Ireland 2015

Join us as we experience the history, culture and landscape of the Emerald Isle on this 10-day tour.  

Ireland - the name conjures a land shrouded in myth and legend, steeped in tradition, and surrounded by beautiful scenery. But as connected as the island is to its past, it has contributed so much to the modern world through literature, art, and music. A visit to Ireland is a visit to the past, and a new view of the present. Ireland is the one place on earth that heaven has kissed with melody, mirth, meadow and mist.
