Second Year Tour 2025

Dear Parent/Guardian,

I am writing to you in relation to the planning of our Second Year Optional European Trip in April 2025. The Teach Mhéibhe Tour in 2025 will be a trip to Lake Garda in Italy.

Sample Itinerary

Your price includes:

  • Dublin/Milan, Venice or Verona return on scheduled airline services.
  • One small item of hand luggage (40x20x25cm).
  • One item of luggage per person (10kg).
  • 3 nights B&B hotel accommodation in Lake Garda.
  • 3 evening meals served at the hotel.
  • Exclusive use of coach for the duration of your tour (within EU drivers' regulations).
  • Return Vaporetto water taxi to Venice.
  • Guided sightseeing tour of Venice.
  • Entrance to Murano Glass Factory.
  • Entrance to Juliet's House.
  • Entrance to the Roman Arena in Verona.
  • Sightseeing boat trip on Lake Garda.
  • Entrance to Gardaland theme park.
  • Evening game of bowling.
  • Fully comprehensive insurance cover.

We are starting the process much earlier compared to other years as flights and accommodation are much harder to get with the large group of students that typically travel in our school. We will be collecting deposits in April 2024 to insure this.

We are planning to run this trip during the first week of the Easter holidays of 2025 (most likely departing on 12th , 13th or 14th of April) for 3 nights. The cost is expected to be approximately €759.

Dates and prices cannot be confirmed as they are dependent on availability at the time of booking.

There may also be an additional cost for a tour hoodie and a bus transfer to and from the airport. This will be a separate payment usually around 30/40 euro paid on VS Ware.

I would appreciate if you could discuss this trip with your son/daughter and indicate whether they would like to be considered for this trip by completing the Jot Form below. Include an up-to-date parental email address on this form. This form is for us to gauge the level of interest in this tour. It is not a guarantee of a place.

Further information will be provided by the School Tour Company in the coming weeks.

I look forward to an exciting year ahead for our Teach Mhéibhe Year students.

Yours sincerely,

Alan Mynes
