For 11 days, a group from Unity National Bank’s Freedom Years travel program discovered the highlights of Ireland. Stops included Mallow, Dublin, the Ring of Kerry, the Lakes of Killarney and other picturesque towns across the country.
“We enjoyed some small-group activities, such as lunch at Longueville House in Mallow, a day trip to the Dingle Peninsula and pony cart rides through the Gap of Dunloe. We also loved the 5,000-year-old tombs of Newgrange in the Boyne Valley.”
