Ever wanted to hunt for four-leaf clovers, visit a real Irish pub or kiss the Blarney Stone?

If so, then the City of Andalusia’s Department of Leisure Services’ Adult Activity Center’s upcoming trip to Ireland is the thing for you.

AAC director Dianne Jones said the eight-day Irish spirit tour will depart Sept. 3. Price is $2,475 and includes airfare from the U.S., six nights in a hotel room, 11 meals and a host of activities.

“We’ll arrive in Dublin, travel to Kilamey and Galway before heading back to Dublin,” Jones said. “It’s going to be such great fun.”

High-lights of the trip include a traditional dinner and show at Abbey Tavern and trips to visit Trinity College, the Ring of Kerry, the Cliffs of Moher and Rathbaun Farm, as well as a catamaran cruise.

“And of course, we’ll kiss the Blarney Stone,” she said.

There are only 31 available seats remaining on the tour.

“We’ve already sold 25, so if you want to go, you need to jump on it,” she said.

The tour is being conducted by C.I.E. Tours International, one of the leading tour groups in Ireland, Jones said.
