Dirt Road Radio wants to take you on a dream vacation to Ireland

Spectacular in their own right, the Cliffs by the Cliffs of Moher.

Ireland is known as the “Emerald Isle,” and it’s easy to see why. Like Emerald City in “The Wizard of Oz,” when you go to Ireland, it’s like going from black and white to a world of color.

Dirt Road Radio knows this, and they want to take you on the trip of a lifetime this September.

Dirt Road Radio is partnering with the Crook County Extension Office to offer a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to embark on a “Great Ireland Adventure.”

“The Emerald Isle is famous for its breathtaking scenery, epic history, and charming small-town pubs,” the event website states. “This excursion includes airfare from Denver International Airport, all ground transportation, lodging, and two meals each day.”

As part of the 2023 Farms and Castles Tour, this trip will include private visits to real production agriculture farms and famous castles. Additionally, it will include tours of both the Jameson Distillery and the Guinness Factory. There’s also an opportunity for a golf outing and so much more.

The tour takes place from Sept. 17 through Sept. 25, 2023, and it promises to be a week full of adventure and magic.

Tourists will depart from the Denver International Airport and arrive in Dublin, the capital city of Ireland. They will then leave for Galway, stopping by the Clonmacnoise — an “inspiring monastic ruin that played a vital role in Ireland’s history.”

The following day, tourists will continue on to Galway, which is known as the “City of Tribes.” Galway is home to almost 70,000 students, artists and writers of all different backgrounds. For the romantics, this is your chance to meet and fall in love with a genuine “Galway girl,” with her hair of black and eyes of blue.

Adventure seekers will explore the town, taking in the shops, the restaurants and, yes, even the bars. Thirsty tourists will have the opportunity to have an “afternoon nip” at Sean’s Bar, which is officially recognized as the oldest pub in Ireland.

Day three will include a visit to a pony farm and the Kylemore Abbey, which is widely regarded as one of Ireland’s most romantic buildings (perhaps you could bring your Galway girl or guy with you?). After that, tourists will visit the Connemara Abalone Aquaculture Farm, which specializes in growing the premium Japanese species known as Ezo. Then, visitors will return to Galway for their final night in the city.

Day four brings tourists to a Diversified Farm Operation. Ireland is known for its potatoes almost as much as its known for its clovers, and this is the chance to see how a traditional Irish family farm grows, stores, weighs, grades and packages potatoes for local supermarkets. After that, visitors will travel to the Cliffs of Moher, which include a vast array of gorgeous views. Travelers will then take a ferry crossing at Tarbert, on the way to Killarney, where they will stay for two nights.

The rest of the trip includes visits to Cork (the “foodie capital of Ireland”), the Blarney Castle (yes, the place where the Blarney Stone lives), Trinity College, the Christ Church Cathedral, and more.

The full itinerary can be found on the Dirt Road Radio website.

The cost for this once-in-a-lifetime trip is $4,299 per person, and it includes airfare, ground transportation in Ireland, lodging, two meals per day and a professional Irish guide.

Additional costs to consider include transportation to and from Denver International Airport, passport and application fees, public transportation, personal items, meal beverages and gratuity.
