Dear Parent/Guardian,

We are currently organising an optional school tour for TY students 2019-2020 (we are also opening the tour up to students who will have gone from 3rd year straight into 5th year. The tour will be completing the last 100km of the Camino de Santiago, in Spain. If we get sufficient numbers, the trip will take place on the Easter break 2020 (exact dates will be confirmed as soon as flights are up and we have numbers).

The cost of this trip will be approximately €650 to 700* per student (we will not have exact price until flights come out). *Students would also need a small amount of spending money as lunch and snacks are not included.

Price Quoted Includes:

  • Dublin/Santiago return flights (Aer Lingus)
  • One item hand luggage per person (10kg)
  • 5 nights accommodation
  • Breakfast at accommodation 5 mornings
  • Five evening meals (served at accommodation or local restaurants)
  • Bag transfer each day (1 bag per person)
  • Return coach transfer form Arklow CBS to Dublin Airport
