“Everything went smoothly”

Jul 18, 2017 by Christine Crain. Your Hometown: Fredericton NB, Canada

Lonna took great care of us. I had never booked an overseas vacation before so was a bit apprehensive but it was a wonderful experience. I am recommending Lonna and Authentic Ireland Vacations to anyone who dreams of seeing Ireland. The car, rooms, excursions and advice were great. Each time I was pleased to see no hitches in the plan and lots of attention to small details to make our stay very special. We had 8 days so time was precious and none was wasted. The places Lonna picked for us were so helpful and friendly. They wen out of their way to make sure we had everything to make our trip smooth and lots of fun. The breakfasts included each morning were fabulous and we were so well fed on scrumptious food we never wanted to stop for lunch. Thanks again Lonna. Very successful adventure in Ireland!!

“Great Trip”

Jul 18, 2017 by Bernie O'Connor. Your Hometown: Brigantine, NJ

What a great trip we had. Our 11 days in Ireland was incredible, AuthenticIreland did a great job with setting our trip. We had one minor issue with a castle that was chosen, but, other than that, we had an amazing time.

“Great Travel Service!”

Jul 18, 2017 by Mike Ochs. Your Hometown: Lowell Massachusettes

I have to say that my experience with Authentic Ireland was first class! Our agent, Maggie Lunde did a great job and made adjustments to all the (many) changes we made as we were in the planning stages of our trip.
Once we arrived at each destination, there wasn't one hiccup or issue with rentals and accommodations. Everything was setup in advance and there weren't any problems.

I definitely recommend Authentic Ireland to anyone considering using them!

Jul 13, 2017 by Sara and Darren. Your Hometown: Emeryville, Ca

Thank you, Authentic Ireland! We had the most wonderful 8-night vacation, without a hiccup, thanks in no small part to the thoughtful, timely, flexible, and attentive support of our travel advisor, Edna Gudino, When we requested a couple of changes to our itinerary before the trip, she had a updated itinerary to us within 24 hours. Every accommodation we went to was beautiful and unique. Highly, highly recommend this company, and Edna in particular, should you find yourself planning to go to Ireland!

“6 Nights in Ireland”

Jul 13, 2017 by Alan. Your Hometown: Westchester County

I started "planning" my vacation with only the loosest of goals: to fly into Dublin, have a scenic drive, and spend a little time on the Western coast. Kati, from Authentic Vacations, helped fill in the blanks with helpful suggestions. She quickly understood the spirit that we had, and was able to offer a great travel plan. We enjoyed two nights in Dublin, one night in Kilkenny, two nights in Galway, and our final night in Bonratty. Authentic Vacations made all of the arrangements--hotel, car rental, and tickets for the hop-on/hop-off bus. The accommodations were fantastic. A very satisfying vacation.
