The Friends Travel Club: Irish Splendor

November 1 – 8, 2022

Savor a true taste of Irish splendor when you spend the night in a stately castle. Relax by a roaring peat fire. Stand in awe on the Cliffs of Moher. Tour rollicking Dublin. Sip on the “Water of Life” at a whiskey distillery. Visit Christ Church Cathedral, one of Ireland’s most historic buildings and delight in cocktails and canapes in its crypt. The Friends Travel Club’s Irish Splendor trip will explore all this and more.
