  • 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

  • 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!
