Celebrate St. Patrick’s Day in Ireland with CFCC! March 10-18, 2013

Travel with CFCC, Cape Fear Community College’s premier leisure travel program, has announced a spring 2013 excursion to Ireland. The trip is open to all students, staff faculty, alumni and friends of the college. This unique experience will allow travelers to engage in a variety of activities from touring Dublin and Belfast to exploring a “Titanic” walking tour of Cobh and a visit to the newly opened Titanic museum.

Along with spending seven nights in superior and first class hotels, travelers will have the luxury of indulging in full breakfasts and dinners, including a traditional Irish dinner and show at Abbey Tavern. A welcome get together toast will also be scheduled.

Tour participants will also be engaged in several fully-escorted excursions including walking tours of Waterford and Derry with local guides, and visits to the Glendalough Visitor Center, the Dunbrody Famine Ship, the House of Waterford Crystal, Blarney Woolen Mills, the Skellig Experience, the Foynes Flying Boat Museum, the Cliffs of Moher, Knock Shrine and W.B Yeats’ Grave.

Travelers will also experience Ireland’s Giant’s Causeway, ranked as the fourth greatest natural wonder of the United Kingdom. The Causeway is a picturesque area of about 40,000 interlocking columns of rock, resulting of an ancient volcanic eruption on the coast of the County Antrim. Travelers will also visit the Ring of Kerry. This beautiful circular tourist trail covers about 179 kilometers of road and includes many scenic views and historical attractions. All visits and admissions will be included.

Total cost is $2,890 per person based on double occupancy, land and air from Wilmington. More information is available at www.cfcc.edu/travel or by calling Karen Pittman at AAA vacations at 910.763.8446, ext. 17513.
