  • We had a wonderful, wonderful time. You guys did a splendid job of taking care of reservations and vouchers for us, and it worked like a dream. And speaking of 'dreams,' it was a dream vacation for both my wife and me. Every single venue you chose for us was absolutely first rate. All the arrangements went as smoothly as butter. If we do something like this again, you've earned yourselves a loyal customer. Many thanks to all who've had a hand in arranging this wonderful trip for us!

  • We were provided with all of our vouchers in a very timely manner. All the vouchers and reservations worked without a hitch. All the hotels were ready for us and everything worked just as we were told by Authentic Ireland. They way travel should work! Thanks. It was all very easy! We had a great experience. All of our accommodations were terrific! We felt like you had selected hotels that had character, charm and style. Thanks again for a great experience.

  • 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!
