  • Nora, the CIE tour you helped Elizabeth plan was THE BEST TOUR ON WHICH WE HAVE EVER BEEN!! Thank you for putting us on this tour, for all your help before we left home and for caring so much for people you most likely will never meet. You may not be everyone's ONE IN A MILLION because they have not had the opportunity to work with you, but you certainly are ours!
    - Vernon Brannen, Charlestown SC

  • Nora was excellent. I can't think of any ways she could improve. She's helped us with trips to both Ireland and Scotland, and both trips were excellent.

  • Our consultant Aisling planned a wonderful two week trip that included Dublin, Wicklow Mountains, Kilkenny, Killarney, Dingle, Doolin, and Galway. Some of our group travelled on to Scotland, which was also an excellent experience. The beauty of this trip was that all the travel details, vouchers for hotels and transportation were organized through Authentic Ireland. Aisling was very prompt and helpful with phone calls and emails. Every night the group was thrilled with accommodations. The breakfasts were top-notch. Authentic Ireland is a travel company that deserves a 5 stars rating.
    - Judy Wilson, Vonore TN 

  • I spoke to several of your staff and ALWAYS came away saying what a pleasant experience it was. However, Aisling was our main planner and she is OUTSTANDING. Aisling made recommendations throughout the planning stages. Her friendly personality came through at all times even when were changing plans and adding on a trip to Scotland. If you are reading this Aisling, THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU, you made our trip just perfect. Not only would I recommend Authentic Ireland to friends, but I will be insisting on it!
    - David Lichtenfeld, Vonore TN

  • Kirsty was excellent!!! Really kept me and the group informed and got back to me promptly with answers to my questions. Glad to see you also do trips to Scotland, as that is the next adventure. I'll be calling you all again soon!
