November 26, 2003 -- B'gosh and begorrah, you'll barely have to touch your pot of gold with this doozy of a deal from Ireland.com. If you book by December 23, you can get a six-day/four-night package that starts from a low $399 per person based on double occupancy.
That base-price covers roundtrip airfare out of NYC, Newark and Boston, four nights in Ireland's extensive consortium of farmhouse B&B's -- including traditional hearty Irish breakfast each morning -- and a standard manual rental car. Add $11.80 per person for an automatic transmission. You can choose to fly into either Shannon on Ireland's west coast or Dublin in the east for travel from January 9 through March 31. Departures out of other US gateways are available at varying additional costs. Taxes totally about $100 per person will be added to your final tally as well.
We suggest acting quickly on this offer if you have even the slightest interest. Travel Zoo announced this package as one of its top ten travel offers a day earlier than expected. Once a deal appears in that weekly mailing, it tends to vanish, so hurry up and head to www.ireland.com/travel.
