September 24 Small Group Tour - Anyone Going?

Good Morning
My husband and I are on this tour. We chose it because first of all - we wanted to come back to Ireland and second. we did a Tauck Small Group last year to National Parks and loved traveling with only 24. On National Parks, people were very casual at dinners. Since many of are stops will be at Castles, I was wondering what dress code for dinners would be at these stops. Look forward to hearing from other travelers. We are from Plano, TX and have been on many Tauck River and Land tours.

  • The dress code is not overly formal. The diningroom at the Merchant Hotel in Belfast is elegant, as is the George V restaurant at Ashford Castle. Men have to wear jackets at the George V, but the hotel provides jackets for the men who don't have them. (There are 2 other restaurants at Ashford Castle -- the Dungeon and Cullen's at the Cottage. Unfortunately, we had only 2 nights there so I couldn't sample all 3. I enjoyed my meal at the Dungeon more than in George V, but I wanted the experience.) Men did not have to wear jackets at the Merchant -- or anywhere else. Women will fit in with slacks and a nice top anywhere. (And don't be shy about wearing the same clothes multiple times. No one cares!)

  • Thanks for the info! Janet
