I just signed up for the May 2 - May 19, 2016 trip. Just got back from the Galapagos trip and it was amazing. I've never been to Ireland and am looking forward to this next adventure!
Patricia Sebestyen Nov 21, 2015 at 04:31 PM

Hi, Georgette. I am also doing this trip-same dates. I will be flying out of ATL, and this will be my 13th trip w/RS.
Georgette M. Nov 21, 2015 at 08:56 PM

That's great! I look forward to meeting you. What other programs have you done?
Patricia Sebestyen Nov 21, 2015 at 09:42 PM

Hawaii+Yellowstone (summer & winter)+Death Valley+4 corners+Puerto Rico+Austria/Germany/France+2 in GA+SpaceCoast FL+Wash DC, etc. What trips have you done besides the Galapagos?

Marty and I are leaving from Chicago on Sept. 28 for the Ireland trip. Anyone else flying from Chicago?

Gayle Vyskocil Aug 18, 2015 at 06:58 PM

Is anyone else coming from Western Washington State besides me for the Sep 28-Oct 15th tour?
Barbara Stilson Sep 17, 2015 at 10:30 PM

Barbara Stilson (Seattle), Hazel Thomas (Seattle) and Marge Hampton (Edmonds) are going on the 9/28 Ireland trip.
Gayle Vyskocil Sep 18, 2015 at 12:06 AM

Hi Barbara, Hazel, and Marge -- I look forward to meeting you. I'm coming from Anacortes and leaving a day early to catch up on the jet lag a bit. I'll be returning to the Dublin airport early on the 29th to join the group from the start.
Hazel Thomas Sep 19, 2015 at 10:41 PM

We're planning to do the same. Maybe we'll see you before then.

Barbara Hoganson Aug 18, 2015 at 05:50 PM

We will be joining the Sept 28-Oct 15 group, leaving early from our home in northern Virginia for a few days beforehand in England.

We are also leaving Boston on Sept. 14. It will be a great trip.
J Marnane Aug 06, 2015 at 05:32 PM

Thanks, do you know haw many are in our group?
Ruth Barr Aug 06, 2015 at 09:12 PM

I don't know the size of our group.
Carol Horlacher Aug 25, 2015 at 01:54 PM

I just asked Roadscholar and they said our program is full at 30 people. See you all at the airport in Dublin!!!
J Marnane Aug 25, 2015 at 02:05 PM

Thanks, I called Road Scholar yesterday and received the same reply.
Ruth Barr Aug 27, 2015 at 10:32 AM

We are on an Aer Lingus flight leaving Boston at 9pm. How about you?
J Marnane Aug 28, 2015 at 06:32 AM

We are on the same flight, see you in terminal E.
Ruth Barr Aug 28, 2015 at 10:56 AM

We will look forward to meeting you.

Ireland's Coasts from North to South, 9/28-10/15/2015
This will be my first trip with Road Scholar, so naturally, I'm excited about everything to do with it. I'm flying to Ireland a day early (Sep 27th), to get some sleep and a head start on overcoming the jet lag. I'll be staying in a hotel near the airport and shuttling back the next morning to meet up with the group from the very beginning. Are any others on this tour doing the same thing? If so, perhaps we could connect and spend part of the arrival day (arriving Sep 28th, after 10:40 AM)together. Hotel check-in times seem to be between 2-3PM; mine is 2PM. Looking forward to meeting all of you, on whatever day that is.
Marjorie Hampton Sep 19, 2015 at 12:48 AM

Marjorie Hampton Sep 19, 2015 at 12:50 AM

Are you flying BA? The three of us mentioned before
Marjorie Hampton Sep 19, 2015 at 12:51 AM

will be leaving Sunday the 27th at 2 p.m. BA to Heathrow
Gayle Vyskocil Sep 19, 2015 at 01:15 AM

Hi Marge, I'm flying Air Canada, departing Sep 27 at 11:20 AM, non-stop to Toronto, change planes, then non-stop to Dublin, arriving Sep 28 at 10:40 AM. I'm staying at the Holiday Inn Express; they have the best shuttle service (according to comments/comparisons) and included amenities. What time on the 28th do you arrive?
Gayle Vyskocil Sep 19, 2015 at 01:16 AM

Also, where are you staying?

William Walker Jul 13, 2015 at 05:32 PM

My wife, Teri, and I will be on the October 5-22 trip - our first visit to Ireland. Anybody else planning to be on that trip? This is the same note I posted back in May but wonder if someone might have signed up recently and not seen my earlier message. Patti, did you have a good trip? Bill
Carole Kiachif Sep 07, 2015 at 10:43 AM

Teri and Bill, I will be on the Oct. 5 trip. I'm leaving from Newark Liberty on the 5th. It will also be my first trip to Ireland.I live in SW Connecticut, not too far from NYC.Looking forward to trip and meeting you.
Carole Kiachif Sep 07, 2015 at 10:44 AM

Carole, Because of family complications we have had to reschedule our trip for next April. Sorry we'll not get to meet you. Hope you have a great time. Bill
