and be sure to tell us you're on board for Ireland!
We'll be in touch as the final arrangements are made.
Bags and guitars - because of the storage limitations of the motor coaches, each person will only be allowed one bag, so please do not plan on bringing your guitar. This trip is our chance to hear the music of Ireland right in Ireland, a chance that might not come again. So enjoy the music we so rarely get a chance to hear and we'll play guitar when we get home.
Tour without flights - You can certainly join the tour if you don't fly over from the U.S. The cost of the tour alone would be $3339 per person.
Hotel rooms - Single rooms are very limited and depend on availability at the individual hotels. If they are available, there will be a surcharge depending on the individual hotel. So please plan on sharing a room if at all possible.
