  • 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!

  • I really loved my trip to Ireland. I thought the country was beautiful, the sightseeing exciting and the people very friendly. My trip to Ireland did indeed exceed my expectations and I regretted having to leave. It was a wonderful vacation and I look forward to returning one day. Thanks for all your help in making it so enjoyable.

  • 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.
