Sign Up Now!

In addition to signing up, please go to the Travel Insurance site where you will be able to choose from 4 different levels of coverage.  https://tourcentral.acfea.com/insurance.aspx

Funds are non-refundable. When you sign up you will be asked to pay the deposit for each person traveling in your group.  Participants have the option to pull out if there is another person to take their place. However, any total withdrawal of any participant will increase the total cost for all other participants. Therefore, each participant is encouraged to buy individual Travel Insurance so that they can be reimbursed in the event of cancellation.

The last payment (May 6) will include any re-calculations necessary based on # of participants, exchange rates, etc.

This is going to be a marvelous opportunity to see Ireland, the greenest land on earth, and to sing in some of the most beautiful locations in the world. (Our actual venues have cannot be finalized until our first deposit is received.)

Sarah’s goal is to take a balanced choir, but spouses/traveling companions will be welcome. If we fill one bus (50 people), we will forge on into a second bus! Also, the price is based on double occupancy. If you wish to have a room to yourself, there is a €552 single room supplement.
