  • This was an excellent experience. I would definitely recommend Authentic Ireland. Along with our itinerary came suggested sightseeing, which was very helpful. The people of Ireland were wonderful, the landscape of Ireland is beautiful and the food was delicious. Having a planned trip with flexibility built into it was really good. All of Ireland was special. All in its own way.
    - Wendy Day, USA

  • Overall our trip was a great experience and we are very satisfied with it. I will be recommending Authentic Ireland Travel to my friends. We really felt like we received great value. You made it very easy for us to enjoy the Ireland experience of our dreams. Thank You!
    - Sean O’Connor, Milan MI

  • 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!
