Earth-Lovers Forest Retreat

Being green is often associated with being Irish, so The Irish Inn is celebrating Planet Earth the whole month of April.  Book a deluxe Earth-Lovers Romantic Escape any day this month mid-week.  This special includes our famous full Irish breakfast, hand-made chocolates, an all-organic dinner, and a bottle of locally produced wine provided by a vineyard on the Southern Illinois Wine Trail for $199++.  Arrive in a Smart Car, Mini Cooper, or hybrid of any make, and receive $20 for fuel costs and for being environmentally conscious.  Even though the official international Earth Day celebration will be only on April 22, 2011, we are celebrating Mother Earth every day at The Irish Inn in April.  Enjoy the beauty of the Shawnee National Forest, wine trail, Ohio River, ride horses, or bike on the Tunnel Hill State Trail.  More discounts available to environmentally-conscious visitors who can stay longer than one day!
