  • Christina was great. While deciding on whether to go to a place of interest and it was raining very heavy, I remember her saying, do not let the rain stop you. She was so right! We went to Loop Head anyways and the sun came out. We also saw our first Irish sunset - we would have missed it if Christina did not give us that advice. I have already recommended AI to some friends and acquaintances we met on our trip. Everything was provided in a great way. Directions, sites to see - etc. We really did not get lost at all during the trip.
    - Theresa McDonald, California

  • We enjoyed it all. Everything was beautiful. My experience was very enjoyable - it was more than I expected. I would definitely like to return for another visit. I found that our travel advisor Sarah knew exactly what she was doing and made our trip very enjoyable. She set up the itinerary perfectly. I would definitely consult with Sarah at Authentic Ireland Travel on my next trip to Ireland.
    - Susan Carberry, Brooklyn NY

  • The itinerary was outstanding. We appreciated how you coordinated the itinerary to be able to use the major motorways as much as possible. Using the M6/M7 really reduced our travel time and stress. It was an amazing vacation from beginning to end. We can't wait to return!!!
