If you’ve always wanted to visit Ireland, this fall would be a great time to go. Frommer’s has the scoop on a deal from Sceptre Tours that lets you see four cities in six nights for one low price: $749. The package includes airfare from New York City, Boston, Chicago or Orlando, lodging in designated hotel for six nights and a rental car so you can tool around in the Irish countryside.
On this tour, you’ll visit Kilkenny, home of Kilkenny castle; scenic Killarney; Galway, known as “Ireland’s Cultural Heart,” and of course, Dublin. Purchased separately, airfare alone would run you over $600, so it’s hard to argue with the price. The hotels included in the package all have four stars, and breakfast is included.
The price is valid for departures from November 24 to February 12, so you could take a fall break or even spend Christmas in Ireland. That gives you plenty of time to plan ahead and get a passport, which you’ll need to do before you can leave. Want to stay longer? Extra nights are available for $75 to $99 per person. For more details, check out the Sceptre Tours website.
It’s fine to go ahead and book the trip, but don’t leave it until the last minute to apply for your travel documents. It does take about six weeks to get your passport back in the mail after you apply. If you pay the $60 expedite fee, you’ll get it sooner, but you should still allow at least three weeks for it to arrive.
For faster service, consider using a private expediting company like RushMyPassport to submit your application.
