Danskammer Welcomes Touring Irish Delegation


On Saturday and Sunday, December 9-10,  Danskammer House innkeepers Linda and Ken Cool hosted a delegation of tour operators from Ireland and their I Love New York escorts as part of a three-day introduction of European travel agents to the rich touristic resources of the Hudson Valley.  After an overnight stay at Danskammer House and at annex accommodations in the innkeepers’ own residence, the Irish delegation awoke the next morning to a multi-course breakfast of locally sourced produce served in the inn’s garden breakfast room and formal dining room.   The Irish delegation then ventured into the broader region over several days to explore wineries, micro-breweries, cideries, restaurants, other bed and breakfast inns, cultural venues, and historical places.  The international trip highlighted new, low-fare, non-stop international route services on Norwegian Air between nearby Stewart International Airport (SWF) and several gateway cities in Ireland, the United Kingdom, and Norway.
