Last-minute travel can have its pitfalls -- and its perks. Here's a tour of Ireland that rewards procrastinators with a $200 discount on two departures in April.

The deal: The five-day, escorted Irish Jaunt tour stops in Dublin, Blarney, Killarney and Limerick, with visits to the Ring of Kerry and Cliffs of Moher as well. The price, which doesn't include airfare, is $599, including tax, per person based on double occupancy. It includes airport transfers, four nights in hotels, four breakfasts, one dinner, motor coach tours and other sightseeing extras. Use the code BRIJ11 when making a reservation.

When: The discount is good only for the April 9 and April 30 departures.

Tested: Brendan Vacations' website offers a detailed itinerary and overview of the trip, but you have to call to make a reservation. I called Tuesday morning and found spaces available for both April dates at the discount rate. The total cost was $599 per person, with a one-time $10 document fee per booking; travel insurance and airfare are extra.
