Los Angeles Times Staff Writer

Deals to Europe are rare in summer, but here's an airfare, car rental and hotel package to Ireland that just might fit the bill.

The deal: Los Angeles travelers receive round-trip airfare to Dublin or Shannon, one night's stay at a hotel, five nights at Irish farmhouse bed-and-breakfasts (there are 450 to choose from) and a rental car with unlimited mileage. The package is $1,099 in May, June, September and October and $1,199 in July and August. All rates are per person and based on double occupancy.

What's included? The Emerald Package includes a full Irish breakfast daily and offers a complimentary tour of the Waterford Crystal factory in Waterford.
