There is no better time to come than in 2013 - the year of The Gathering. It’s the year when Ireland invites the world to come and celebrate our food, sports, culture, fun
and lots more. The year-long, country-wide party promises an Irish welcome like no other.

In Dublin, you'll take an insider's tour of Dublin Castle, St. Stephen's Green, St. Patrick's Cathedral and Trinity College, home to the legendary Book of Kells. With a 24-hour transit ticket, you can also hoist a delicious pint at the Guinness Storehouse and make a toast to Ireland. Or, if you are looking for something a bit stronger, enjoy a tour of the Jameson Whisky Distillery. Take a tour of the Waterford Crystal Factory and discover the amazing craftsmanship that goes into making the finest crystal in Europe. Of course, no tour of Ireland can be considered complete without a visit to Blarney Castle. It's the seat of the Blarney Stone, which if kissed, bestows the gift of gab - something for which the Irish are noted.

Tour the scenic Killarney National Park and pass by the bucolic villages of Sneem and Cahirsiveen, which are dotted with colorful houses. Discover the world-famous "Ring of Kerry," the winding coastal road that showcases the southwestern region of the country in all its glorious grandeur. Explore the Galway City Museum, which reveals the importance of Galway as a seafaring town since the Middle Ages. The Lynch Stone and Galway Cathedral are also must-sees. Charming Quay Street is lined with bohemian restaurants and lively, authentic pubs that make for a great place to converse with the local residents.

Plus, there’s ample time in your itinerary to explore independently and indulge in optional excursions. Airfare, airline taxes and fuel surcharges included from New York. Departures from other gateway cities in the US are available at an additional cost. So c’mon, jump into Ireland!
