The Gathering Ireland 2013 will be a spectacular, year-long celebration of Ireland and all things Irish. And Trafalgar invites travellers to join their exclusive Gathering of Trafalgarians which will be taking place in April 2013.

Ireland may be a small country, but the Irish have put down roots all over the world. Over 70 million people worldwide now claim Irish ancestry many of whom live in South Africa. This is quite something, considering the total Irish population of today is just 5.6 million.

Maybe you have an Irish name? An Irish Grandma? An Irish hobby? Have you studied or worked in Ireland? Do you love Irish food, music or literature? Or do you just have a life-long desire to explore Ireland from top to bottom? 2013 is the perfect year to come back to Ireland, to explore old connections and discover new ones. And the best time to come and experience for yourself, in a unique and special way, the céad míle fáilte (one hundred thousand welcomes) that the Irish are famous for.

Throughout 2013, the Irish will throw open their arms, inviting friends and family from around the world to visit for what promises to be an incredible year. So join the Gathering of Trafalgarians for this exclusive Irish Wonder trip on 14 April 2013. Come and be a part of this iconic and memorable year!

Join their 8-day Gathering of Trafalgarians priced from R15 999 per person sharing including flights and enjoy fantastic accommodation with breakfast daily, three 3-course dinners, Dublin airport transfers, the services of a professional Travel Director and travel by luxury air-conditioned coach.
