Shades of Ireland featuring Northern Ireland

Dates: August 29–September 10, 2024
Registration: Open (How to Book Your Trip)

As part of the United Kingdom, Ireland offers a different experience than its namesake. From the stunning lakes of Fermanagh to an overnight stay in a regal manor, Ireland will feel otherworldly. Take in the lively city of Derry, venturing within the towering stone walls that encircle centuries of history. Experience Belfast, Northern Ireland’s capital. The city is filled to the brim with local history – known to be the site where the infamous Titanic was built – and bustling with modern energy. Marvel at a land of rolling hills and verdant green valleys at the Glens of Antrim, where the horizon stretches for nine valleys. Stand in awe at Giant’s Causeway, where 40,000 interlocking rocks form hexagonal footstones fit for a giant. The hardened-lava structures reach a height of 39 feet in some places, providing an ethereal quality to the out-of-place landscape.
