  • We LOVED Ireland and also Authentic Ireland Travel. You guys did such a wonderful job of setting everything up for us, which took the stress off of us. Everyone we spoke to along the way was traveling with Authentic Ireland, and all having a wonderful time. We laughed the entire trip! The people of Ireland were all super nice and friendly! We will return to visit someday.

  • I had heard of the kindness that Irish people have towards visitors. Some went out of their way hugely to help us. While we couldn't do it "all" ... what we did do certainly did exceed my expectations! I have wonderful things to say of Ireland. Thanks for all of your help, Aisling (and colleagues) in setting up this travel adventure. Many people are waiting to hear "how it went", and I have a good report to share! I hope others are encouraged to visit Ireland!
