UMaine Resumes Annual Alumni Travel Program with Trip to Ireland

A ten-day trip to Ireland in October launched the resumption of the Alumni Association’s annual alumni travel program. Partnering with Collette Travel, a national leader in alumni travel programming, 13 Black Bear alumni and friends visited many of Ireland’s most historic and stunning locales, including the breathtaking Cliffs of Moher, Ring of Kerry National Park, the 259-year-old Guinness Brewery, musical performances, museums, and the cuisine and nightlife of Dublin and other cities. They also visited several centuries-old castles, including Blarney Castle near Cork (pictured left).

Next year the Alumni Association’s travel program will journey to Italy December 5-14th, 2019. It will feature a focus on Tuscany with highlights on Florence, Pisa, Siena, and more! Alumni will experience wine tours, cooking classes, historic excursions, and more throughout Italy’s Tuscan region. Check back next month for registration information.
