Don't you want to go?  As Tom Wolfe says, "Are you on the bus or off the bus?"  I'm so pleased that enough people signed up before the deadline that we can definitely do the tour BUT we still have five empty seats that I would love to fill. C'mon now - you'll not regret it.  If you would like to spend 10 glorious days in Ireland with me and a small but lively group of very cool people, drop a line to 

 Your $2250 will cover 9 nights in great hotels, all ground transportation from July 29th through  August 6th, all breakfasts, three sumptuous dinners, admission to all heritage sites -  It's a fabulous value.  I love taking friends to Ireland.  I have been going to the Emerald Isle regularly since I was 26 years old, and I'm a fun and fairly knowledgeable guide. There is lots more information at   Any questions? Reply to this newsletter, or check out the many articles I have posted on my blog, the Fellow Travelers' Advisory, or send me your phone number and a good time to call.  You'll be welcome indeed!

Our luxury coach safely navigates even the wee byways, so we don't miss out on anything!
