Irish Heritage Trip: June 18-June 30, 2010
Beyond the patchwork pastures and bucolic landscapes, Ireland bears a rich and complex history. In Dublin, witness the legacy of saints, writers and the revolutionaries of the Irish War of Independence. See the legendary Book of Kells at Trinity College and take a walking tour focused on the historic 1916 Rebellion. On the extension, cross into Northern Ireland to reach Belfast, once the epicenter of religious strife in Ireland and now a city of rebirth.
