KVLU 91.3 announces Ireland trip

As part of its mission to educate and entertain the community of Southeast Texas, 91.3 KVLU public radio has a long tradition of hosting travel trips and will host a trip to Ireland in 2018.

Cliffs of Moher“Next summer, we will trade the sweltering temperatures of southeast Texas for the charm of the Emerald Isle,” said Shannon Harris of KVLU, “a destination requested by many of our listeners.” Shades of Ireland is a 10-day trip, July 18-28, 2018, exploring all of Ireland’s charm including history-filled Dublin, Waterford, Killarney, the stunning Cliffs of Moher on the Atlantic coast, the Ring of Kerry, Blarney Castle and much more.

The group will travel from Beaumont to Ireland courtesy of Collette (, a world premier travel tour company in business since 1918.

“With a focus on service and quality, Collette will ensure that our trip to Ireland will include a wonderful mix of history and natural beauty with iconic, must-see and cultural inclusions that deliver a deeper experience,” Harris said. “And what’s more, Collette will seamlessly handle each element of the trip from start to finish so that guests can focus on what’s most important – having FUN!”

The early registration deadline is January 19 and includes a $200 discount. Travelers can hold seats now with a $500 per person refundable deposit. A day-by-day itinerary of our trip including information about excursions, meals and lodging is available at:
