The Danville Sister Cities Commission has announced that it will sponsor a 10-day tour of Ireland this coming summer from July 19-29.
The trip will begin in rustic Western Ireland, move to Dublin and end in the seaside town of Carrickfergus, Northern Ireland, Danville’ s Sister City.
The $1,540 land cost of the trip will include accommodations at three-star hotels, full Irish breakfasts each day, six dinners, all excursions and entry fees as stated on the itinerary, hotel porterage, service charges, and government taxes.
Travel Leaders/Thomas Travel will offer an air package from Lexington, or participants can book air travel on their own.
Melinda Patton of Travel Leaders said that the dollar’ s strength against European currencies makes this trip a particularly good value. The trip will accommodate 25-40 persons on a first-come, first-served basis. Milton and Sandy Reigelman, who have led several tours to Ireland and Europe, will be the group leaders.
