  • 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.

    - Cheryl Penov, USA

  • We had a wonderful time and plan to use your services on our next trip to Ireland. We have already recommended your company to family and friends.
    - Rosemary Krupp, USA

  • I would absolutely recommend! We always wanted to go to Ireland but never knew where to start or what areas we should stay or see. This was a wonderful way to get us out there with the help of people who know what areas to recommend. We are looking forward to going out to Ireland again!
    - Michaela Schanz, USA

  • I am so glad I found Authentic Ireland. Our stay was made carefree by the knowledgeable help I received from Sarah, Kirsty and Nora. Without their helpful advice and suggestions, I know our trip would not have been as well organized and interesting as it turned out to be.
