“Really Special!!”

Jan 24, 2018 by Phyllis + Norman Tunnell. Your Hometown: Pound Ridge

We have recently returned from a wonderful excursion of 2 weeks planned by Emma Tancred.She was responsive, understood our objectives, and made great suggestions to customize our itinerary. . Emma arranged the car, the insurance, accommodations from B+B's to lovely hotels, a car and driver to Newgrange. Our self drive tour began after spending 3 days in Dublin; then on to the Wicklow Mountains, Kilkenny, Kinsale, Kenmare, Doolin, and Galway.. We have experienced Ireland in all its magic and wonder. Thank you, Emma. You have our highest recommendation.

“Scotland in November”

Jan 24, 2018 by Meredith and Brian McArthur. Your Hometown: Winnipeg, MB, Canada

Having just returned from our ten day tour of Scotland, I have had a few days to reflect on a wonderful journey. We were so impressed with the accommodations .con booked for us. Every one was exceptional. Our only suggestion for future travelers is not to stay in downtown Glasgow if you are driving a rental vehicle. We were given poor directions by the hotel staff and ended up driving around for about twenty minutes trying to find the parkade for which the hotel validated. We parked finally in one that apparently was the wrong one, and after a ten minute walk back to the hotel, were told they couldn’t reimburse us. It was 22£ that we needn’t have spent had the hotel clerk been clearer in her directions. To be fair, our information from the travel company did give directions to the appropriate car park, but a strange city can be confusing. It was a minor disruption in a fabulous trip. We had a great vehicle, and enjoyed the people, the food and the fabulous scenery along the way. Thanks Con for your sightseeing suggestions. We learned a lot of Scottish history. Some of the sites were closed for the winter, but we never ran out of things to see and do. The guest house owners were particularly friendly and helpful. We will return!

“2 day whirlwind tour of Dublin”

Jan 24, 2018 by John. Your Hometown: Long Beach, CA

I recently had a short, whirlwind trip to Dublin, Ireland, on my way to Cardiff, Wales where I was traveling to take a 3 day course. Dublin was wonderful! My first visit! Loved it!! No problems!! Can't wait to return.

Interestingly, traveling over on Aer Lingus, the day after Thanksgiving, the flight was almost empty, for whatever reason. Only about 50 of us onboard. That made for excellent inflight service!

Weather was ok, nice sunny days, and a bit on the chilly side (low to mid 30's) but was not a problem. while I currently live in southern California and have adapted to the Mediterranean climate, I am from the Great Lakes and cold weather generally doesn't bother me. I adapted!

Maggie arranged for me to ride the "Hop on" bus which worked out very nicely! You can 'hop on' and 'hop off'' as you please, for 1 fare. Took the tour of Dublin the morning of my first full day there! Saw it all. Then, after returning to my hotel, the Davenport, which is quite charming, I bravely set out on foot to see what I could see. They speak English, and I can read a map, and I had a wonderful time exploring. :) I might add that I had ongoing problems trying to connect to any networks while there. The hotel network was down. Fortunately, I am able to function without the iPhone :) ...so I adapted and it all worked out. I stepped into a souvenir store and got on their network to send emails and photos home. Saw many places...Grafton St, the Cathedral, the Guinness Tour, Trinity College, the Book of Kell's tour, the Whiskey Tour, the National Gallery...I fit a lot into 2 days...

Yes, I will have to return when I have more time, because there is SO much to see! But I have learned to take advantage of the opportunities that life presents...so I jumped at this chance to see a little bit of Ireland!

it was pointed out to me before leaving that Ireland is on the Euro, and the rest of the UK is on the Pound...so I needed Euros for Dublin then got UK currency in pounds when arriving in Cardiff.

Can't wait to return... :)

“Must use Authentic Ireland”

Jan 24, 2018 by John Davis. Your Hometown: Kerrville Texas

Lauren our vacation planner made all of or Ireland Dreams come completely true. We could not have asked for a better planned vacation anywhere. Our self drive tour took us through the most beautiful places in the world. We will use Lauren and Authentic Ireland again for our next trip without doubt!

“Excellent Vacation”

Oct 4, 2017 by Victor & Linda White. Your Hometown: Fishers, Indiana

Our Ireland vacation was a most enjoyable one. The self driven tour was everything we expected and more. Every B&B provided excellent service and the accommodations were top notch. Jordan was able accommodate our request to include a trip to Inishturk island. My wife was able to make contact with relatives she met for the first time. We are so thankful to Jordan for planning everything and making the adjustments we needed. Excellent service! We will definitely recommend Authentic Ireland to our friends.
