Tailored package tours to Ireland

7th February 1997 at 00:00
Acompany dedicated to providing tailor-made packages for school tours, including all the above and visits and lectures and classes, has begun taking bookings. Educational Tours To Ireland is based in Wiltshire. The company offers a choice of five locations: Dublin, Doolin, Killarney, Waterford and Carlingford. Tours can be self-catering or include meals.

Holidays can focus on history, natural history, arts or sports or a mix of any of these. A five-day historical tour might take in a trip to the early Christian site of Glendalough with its Celtic crosses, chapels and Round Tower set in the Wicklow Mountains; Dublinia, an exhibition of the story of Dublin from its Viking beginnings to the present day; a visit to the early Irish burial mound at Newgrange and a tour of the Hill of Tara, home of the ancient Irish Kings. It would cost about Pounds 119 per head, including entrance fees, tours, meals, four nights' accommodation and coach and high-speed ferry.

Arts tours take in museums and festivals and Irish dance, language and music. Natural history tours can focus on geology, ecology, flora and fauna and agriculture. The company will also arrange sporting contacts with clubs and schools in Ireland for sports including rugby, sailing, hurling and Gaelic football and is open to other ideas if schools want to suggest them.
