When it comes to vacations, there's no reason to leave anything to chance—unless, of course, fortune is on your side. Let some of Éire's legendary luck rub off on you with this week's Escape: an eight-day trip to Ireland for one guest*, courtesy of Sceptre Tours ($899 to $1,349 depending on departure date and airport).**

You'll visit four cities and receive round-trip airfare, including departure taxes, and a standard rental car for the duration of your trip. Depart from New York's JFK airport, Boston's Logan airport, or Chicago's O'Hare airport to arrive in Dublin. Six nights in luxurious, four- and five-star accommodations await you no matter when you visit, but you can avoid crowds by traveling in November.

Your first stop is County Laois in the Emerald Isle's Midlands Region. An overnight stay at The Heritage Golf & Spa Resort—one of the area's premier properties—will get your trip off to an auspicious start. Hit the links at the on-site par-72, championship-caliber golf course. Then take an included tour of the nearby House of Waterford Crystal.

The next day, head for southwestern Ireland, where fortune will smile on you with two nights at the International Hotel in Killarney. Ride a horse-drawn carriage through town, or breathe in the cool air from the world-famous Lakes of Killarney, which cover nearly a quarter of the park's area.

Keep your lucky streak going in Mayo with a two-night stay at the luxurious five-star Ashford Castle where you can pursue kingly sports like falconry, archery, or horseback riding. Take a cruise around the island of St. Patrick or pin down a game of golf on the meticulously manicured course. While here, you'll delight in an included visit to the Cliffs of Moher. Located about an hour northwest of Limerick, the cliffs rise out of the Atlantic Ocean nearly 400 feet.

The last leg of your serendipitous journey brings you to Dublin City, where you'll spend a night at the Academy Plaza Hotel. This centrally located spot places you smack dab in the heart of the city centre, putting you within easy reach of must-see sites such as Trinity College, Christ Church Cathedral, and Grafton Street. Grab 10 percent off Ireland's beer of choice at the world-famous Guinness Storehouse or engage in a little retail therapy at Kildare Village where you'll have a 10-percent discount. The next day, rise and shine to catch a flight back to the US.

It doesn't take a special charm to fall for enchanting Éire. Leave the wishing wells behind and make your own luck in Ireland.

  • "Though Galway is Ireland's third largest city, it is more of a village than a megalopolis. Despite its size (population about 70,000) Galway is rich in cuisine and culture, and fabulously wealthy when it comes to good cheer and traditional Irish music."
