IRELAND: Breaking the Script
March 15, 2019
How does Ireland break the script?
Clipping along in a horse-drawn buggy through four-leaf-clover-green Irish hills, over ancient stone bridges, and past pure blue lochs. Now THAT breaks the palm-trees-and-beach incentive travel script! You know, the trips that leave you wondering years later as you flip through pictures if you were in Hawaii, the Caribbean, or Mexico? But Ireland…breathtaking, surprising, unforgettable. For those who visit, it’s akin to finding the pot of gold at the end of a rainbow. Magic.
The script has a tropical-theme hotel, the convention-style ballroom with psychedelic carpet the location for your farewell night. Nothing about that scenario creates memories that motivate. Time to break that script!
How about reserving all three floors of the Guinness Storehouse in Dublin where your guests can pull their own pints while eating delicious Irish pub grub and listening to an incredible U2 cover band? Imagine staying where the constitution of Ireland was written—the 5-star, landmark Shelbourne Hotel in Ireland’s capital city, your room overlooking St. Stephen’s Green. What could be more Irish and out-of-the-box than drinking in the views of Loch Leane and the Macgillycuddy’s Reeks Mountains from the sleek, modern balcony of the Europe Hotel and Resort in Killarney, roast lamb in hand? Now see yourself in a sumptuous hall where kings and queens have supped in the magnificent, vine-covered Luttrellstown Castle built in the 1400’s, being entertained by fantastic Irish performers like the Key Notes and the lovely Lisa Lambe. Extraordinary locations like these break the script and transport each guest to another time and place.
