Firefighters, first responders, military members, nurses, police officers, and teachers of all heritages can now travel to Ireland for less.

May is a month full of celebration for those who positively impact the world around them. From Nurses Appreciation Week (May 6-12) to National Military Appreciation month and Teacher Appreciation Day (May 7), those who serve are especially acknowledged for their contributions to society this month.  

From the first Irish immigrants to heed the call, the connection between Ireland and the American service community runs deep. CIE Tours International, Ireland’s premier tour operator since 1932, recognizes this deep connection between Ireland and America and wants to say thank you for their continued hard work throughout the country.

The tour operator is offering $200 air credit per couple as well as up to 15% off select tours in Ireland, Scotland and Italy to all the firefighters, first responders, military members, nurses, police officers, and teachers of all heritages who make our world a better and safer place to live and travel.
