Athens State Alumni Offering Trip - Irelands Coastal Treasures

May 3, 2013

Athens, ALA. - The Athens State University Alumni Association is sponsoring a trip to Ireland through Collette Vacations and SooHoo & Associates on November 7-15, 2013.

Join the first family of Athens State, Dr. and Mrs. Glenn, on this trip that is open to anyone – not just Athens State alumni. It will introduce 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!’

“Our 2012 trip was stateside to Savannah, Georgia, and we thought it was time for an overseas excursion. I’m very excited about this vacation package and can’t wait to see who joins us. ” states Alumni Director Trish DiLullo.

Trips booked before May 7, 2013 save $250 per person and included in the price of the 9 day trip are round trip airfare from Huntsville, 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.
