  • Aisling was great, and answered all of our questions. Even when I called while in Ireland, the staff answering the phone were great. We just had a great time - the experience of a lifetime, and I don't think I will see anywhere as beautiful. The itinerary perfect - what more can I say?
    - Margaret Ray, London OH

  • I would absolutely recommend! We always wanted to go to Ireland but never knew where to start or what areas we should stay or see. This was a wonderful way to get us out there with the help of people who know what areas to recommend. We are looking forward to going out to Ireland again!
