See the castles. Experience the culture. Meet the locals. And behold those famous shades of green that stretch as far as the eye can see. In 2016, the University of Central Arkansas Alumni Association will host a nine-day retreat to the “Emerald Isle.”
“We are very excited to re-introduce the Alumni Travel program,” said Aaron Knight, assistant director of membership and marketing.
“We feel like this is a great opportunity for alums to deepen their connection to the University and other alumni, as well as to the culture of Ireland during this trip,” Knight continued.
Planned for Sept. 1-9, 2016, alumni will begin their getaway with an overnight flight to Dublin where guests have the chance to explore the country’s capital city and attend a nighttime event packed with traditional Irish entertainment. During the next day, guests have the option to take tours of St. Patrick’s Cathedral, Grafton Street and Phoenix Park, among other attractions, or they can choose to take a walking tour of Dublin’s center square.
There are several options available for reservations, depending on the size of the interested party. The pricing, discounted by $100 if booked soon, includes a round-trip ticket from the Clinton National Airport in Little Rock, hotel transfers, 12 meals, flight taxes and other related fees.
A special informational presentation will take place Jan. 14, 2016 at 6:30 p.m. at Buffalo Alumni Hall for those interested in learning more.
