DELRAY BEACH, Fla., Oct. 9, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Brendan Vacations, the Ireland Specialist, is excited to announce the launch of their 2013 Ireland and Scotland brochure, highlighting The Gathering, a year-long celebration of all things Irish. Communities throughout Ireland will showcase and share the very best of Irish culture, tradition, business, sport, fighting spirit and the uniquely Irish sense of fun. On all of Brendan's 2013 Ireland tours, guests will get an opportunity to celebrate The Gathering. Each tour has a unique Gathering experience, from a personally invited lunch in a private home with local expert on W.B. Yeats in Sligo on the Castle & Manors Boutique Journey to a Bodhrán (Irish Drum) lesson for everyone in one of Ireland's oldest pubs on the Enchanting Emerald Isle itinerary. If Ireland is on your bucket list, 2013 is the year to go, and Brendan Vacations will make sure it's your best trip ever.

According to Nico Zenner, President of Brendan Vacations, "We are very excited to be offering so many opportunities for our guests to participate in The Gathering next year, and because we have our own office and staff in Ireland, we are able to take care of our guests in the best personal way. All our Travel Directors are exclusively employed by Brendan, and because they are Irish, they know Ireland like no one else. Brendan's Travel Directors make 'taking you personally' more than just a motto, and I'm confident that travelers will find their Ireland vacation truly unique, personal and exceptional."

Brendan's 2013 brochure offers four different travel styles in Ireland to choose from, ensuring that your trip is exactly as you want it to be:

Brendan's Guided Vacations are carefully planned to make the most of your time and handle all the details for you. Your expert driver will see that your trip is relaxing and worry-free. "You're Personally Invited" dining, hidden delights, and other treats also await you. And you'll have the services of a Friendly Irish Travel Director whose knowledge, advice, and attention to detail is unsurpassed. Brendan's Castles & Manors Boutique Journey is a more intimate experience in Ireland, with a maximum of 24 guests. Save up to $650 per couple on eligible Ireland Guided Vacations booked by December 27, 2012.

If you prefer to travel on your own, Brendan offers Independent and Customized vacations. On an Independent Vacation accommodations have been booked, train tickets reserved, and you have a Local Host to assist you in the cities you visit, plus private airport transfers and a sightseeing tour in each city are included, and you don't have to rent a car. With Independent Vacations, you travel on your own, but never alone!

A Customized Vacation offers the most flexibility of all—plan your own itinerary, sightseeing, rental car and overnight stays in castles, manor homes, unique hotels, and traditional B &Bs. If you'd rather have someone else do the driving, Brendan has Private Chauffeur Vacations, the ultimate personalized travel adventure. With the ability to select from a range of premium 4- and 5-star hotel, castle or manor accommodations, as well as charming bed and breakfasts along with the way, guests are whisked about in private cars by a private driver guide who can sometimes prove to be your vacations' greatest treasure.
