  • We had a wonderful, wonderful time. You guys did a splendid job of taking care of reservations and vouchers for us, and it worked like a dream. And speaking of 'dreams,' it was a dream vacation for both my wife and me. Every single venue you chose for us was absolutely first rate. All the arrangements went as smoothly as butter. If we do something like this again, you've earned yourselves a loyal customer. Many thanks to all who've had a hand in arranging this wonderful trip for us!

  • I had heard of the kindness that Irish people have towards visitors. Some went out of their way hugely to help us. While we couldn't do it "all" ... what we did do certainly did exceed my expectations! I have wonderful things to say of Ireland. Thanks for all of your help, Aisling (and colleagues) in setting up this travel adventure. Many people are waiting to hear "how it went", and I have a good report to share! I hope others are encouraged to visit Ireland!
    - Karin Boehler, Saskatoon, Canada

  • I really loved my trip to Ireland. I thought the country was beautiful, the sightseeing exciting and the people very friendly. My trip to Ireland did indeed exceed my expectations and I regretted having to leave. It was a wonderful vacation and I look forward to returning one day. Thanks for all your help in making it so enjoyable.

Hidden Castles

Explore hidden castles, ancient sites & spectacular scenery in secret areas of Ireland on our Hidden Castles tour! Irish Castles have a rich history that envelops you as you meander down magnificent hallways, explore mysterious nooks, and indulge in lush gardens. You’ll spend 4-nights sleeping in castles with richly designed bedrooms and gorgeous grounds that exude genuine Irish character.

You are close enough to the hum and flair, but just far enough away from the bustle to allow your imagination to sink into the distant past. Your last retreat is a four-star hotel in close proximity to the castle where Braveheart was filmed - just imagine the ambience there!
