As the new year begins, my mind turns toward travel. After all, vacation time is just a few short months away! This year you don’t need to stress about where to go or how to get there. Just join us on a trip to Ireland to learn about the land of our Scots-Irish ancestors while enjoying beautiful scenery, charming accommodations and wonderful meals as you travel from place to place in relaxing comfort!
The Spartanburg County Historical Association is pleased to team with Explore Up Close, the Spartanburg travel company created by our very own Chumley Cope, to offer a trip to Ireland and Northern Ireland in May 2013. As you may know, the Spartanburg area’s earliest settlers were Scots-Irish and this is a great opportunity to see their old stomping grounds. The trip is designed for no more than 18 travelers and will focus on beautiful and historic places incorporating knowledgeable, local guides. A portion of the cost supports the Historical Association as well! For just $3875 (double occupancy and before air fare), you can spend 10 wonderful days from May 10-19, 2013, soaking in the beauty and history of Ireland without worrying about a single logistical thing. A $750 deposit will hold your reservation and the balance is due February 26. See more details and photos on the attached document. Feel free to send me any questions you may have, but don’t miss this wonderful tour!
I look forward to hearing from you! Becky
