BLUE RAVEN ARTIST MANAGEMENT

We'll be hitting the road to Ireland once again in October 2015, and we'd love to have you come along with us. Our trip this year sold out in a matter of days so in 2015 we are doing 2 trips, one covering the North of the Country and one covering the South. Seats are filling up for both of them, especially for the Southern tour which will include 2 nights in Dingle, Kenmare, Kinsale and Dublin, with stops at Killarney, Kilkenny, Blarney, Sessions/Gigs every night with us and some of the finest musicians around the country..including sessions in the Micheltown Caves in Co. Cork and the Crypt at Christchurch Cathedral in Dublin! $200 holds your seat and is refundable if you can't make it...

The Northern Trip will see us staying in Belfast, Donegal Town, Westport and Dublin, with stops in Derry, the Giant's Causway, Oideas Gael (an Irish Speaking area of Donegal), and Galway....Both trips will conclude with a big show in Dublin along with the reception and Session in Christ Church...
We will go all out to make this one of the best experiences you have ever had.
Just call Janice at 1-800-945-0368 ext. 61516. to get the ball rolling.
INTERESTED??

Below are the Flyers for the Northern and Southern Trips (click on the images to open the full page flyer)... We'll be going full steam ahead promoting the tour, and these will also be published this month in AAA's Travel Magazine.
The itinerary listed is the basic itinerary; we are adding fantastic shows and experiences all the time. Including a very special gig in Belfast, a trip to Oideas Geal, an Irish Speaking area of Donegal where we'll hang out, sing a few tunes and maybe pick up a few words of Gaelic (I will send everyone the packet of Gaelic/Irish Lessons that I wrote while working for Berlitz a few years ago), a Session/Reception in the Crypt of Christchurch Cathedral....and so much more. Just like our 2014 trip, we will be finding some amazing pubs and corners of the country to play for you, and finding some fantastic local musicians to complete you experience of Ireland. During the day you'll visit and tour some of the most beautiful sights around the country, and at night we take over! We won't leave a stone unturned looking for cool places to play, stay, visit, eat and drink. By keeping the groups small we can do so much more than the regular tour stuff. So many tours of Ireland visit the same spots over and over; we want to make absolutely sure that there will be memories made that you'll never forget. There are about 40 spots available for each week, with a significant discount (and an extra night...somewhere between Dublin and Dingle) if you choose to join us for both weeks. About 30 of the 80 total spots have been snapped up by folks who came this year which is fantastic.

Without flight included, we have a price of $1825 per person. With AAA's buying power, we can get a great deal on the flights, we will update the price once we get the group travel rates from the airlines. We decided to do the trip in Early October, most "band" trips are taking place in November when it is a little cheaper. However, I felt that the slight extra cost of doing the trip in October will really pay off in terms of the weather and especially in the length of the days. In November it can get pretty miserable and the days are extremely short. The clocks don't go back in Ireland until the third week in October, giving us that extra hour of sunshine and daylight...I think it'll make a huge difference. Once again, the band will be travelling right there on the bus with you...Join Maura Dwyer, Andrew Jay Keenan, Rob Shaffer and Me ...John Byrne, for a fantastic and unforgettable Tour of Ireland!
Once again, If you have any questions at all, email us at johnbyrneirelandtour@gmail.com or call Janice at 1-800-945-0368 ext. 61516
