What our clients say.

On behalf of my family, I wanted to write to thank you for the wonderful arrangements and trip planning you made for our recent visit to Ireland. I couldn’t imagine how it could have been better except for the fact we wanted to stay much longer. The accommodations were wonderful, the trip pace was just right and I can’t say enough good things about our driver/guide. What a lovely man, full of knowledge of the country and people and so easy to get along with. He felt a part of the family. Ireland is truly a wonderful and magical place, with beauty everywhere one looks, and a warm and wonderful people that tops it all off.

Thanks again for all your help and we all want to come back again soon.

Nina and I would like to thank you for all you and Grace-Ann did to arrange our incredible Ireland trip. Everything went as scheduled, even the weather! I do echo what good Irish friends said after reviewing our itinerary - that this was the best planned Ireland journey they had ever seen. We thoroughly enjoyed each place we stayed and the professional and detailed care you gave in arranging everything. We love your wonderful country and everything about it from its many shades of green to the most friendly and helpful people we have ever met. Our only regret is that we would love to still be your guests. We have travelled extensively and worked with wonderful folks in the travel business but I don’t think we have experienced a journey more professionally prepared and executed. Our thanks to you and Grace-Ann for all you did.

Dave and I wanted to wanted to send you a quick note to tell you how much we enjoyed our trip to Ireland. The accommodations your chose were fantastic. They were were well appointed and excelled in customer service. The itinerary was great and ensured we didnt miss any of the highlights. We both agreed that one of the best parts of our trip was our driver/guide. He had a very comfortable/clean vehicle, was a safe driver, had an in depth knowledge of Ireland and was very flexible. After hearing we were Game of Thrones fans, he went out of his way to take us to sites where the series was filmed and to the Ulster Museum where a 77meter tapestry of the show was on display. It was fantastic. After travelling with us for a few days he became aware of what we were interested in and he took us to a few places off the beaten track…..and they were amazing! Dave and I will definitely be recommending you to our friends who are planning to visit Ireland. Thanks and best regards. (Slainte) Teresa & Dave Clark

We made it home safe and sound and wanted to take a moment to express our gratitude to you. This was truly one of our most memorable vacations! From the stunning five-star hotels, to Gerard who is witty and charming and added so much to our journey, to the gorgeous scenery on the itinerary that you planned for us. It was beyond our expectations and we are so appreciative. We will recommend you to everyone we know!

Kim & Lori, USA

We just want to thank you SO MUCH for planning our trip… Everything was wonderful… all the places we stayed were perfect.. We had great weather, our driver/guide Tony was awesome (made the trip even better) – every day was better than the next… thank you, thank you.

S & K Lucey, USA

We wanted to send you a note of thanks for a beautifully planned trip to Ireland. Our family had the time of our lives! The accommodations were wonderful and greatly exceeded our expectations. You even arranged a week of spectacular weather. Without a doubt what truly made our trip special was our driver and guide, David. He was a delight and gem of a guy. His local knowledge and hospitality made the trip feel easy, comfortable and warm. He was so accommodating to any whim we had, yet guided our trip so that we were able to enjoy so much more than we ever could of on our own. Thanks again for a professionally planned and executed trip. It will remain a treasured experience for us forever.

The Adams Family, USA

Just a short note to thank you for your excellent service in helping us put together what was a wonderful four days of golf on spectacular golf courses in southwest Ireland. Our hotel accommodations, tee times and flight schedules worked out beautifully. This was truly a most enjoyable trip. We look forward to working with you on our next golf trip to Ireland.

M D'Appolonia, USA

Thanks again for your assistance in creating a beautiful vacation for this special family! Erin was raving and thanked me profusely for all the help and told me she is going to tell all her friends about me. Thank you, Paula, for making me shine. I couldn’t have done it without you! I’m so glad Andrea connected us, and you will definitely be my go to for Ireland bookings in the future!

A Schoenhard, USA

I wanted to pass along that we had a wonderful trip. Everything about it was fantastic. Every day seemed like a new highlight for us. Number 31 and the Perryville House were beautiful but the view from the newly renovated Pax House was INCREDIBLE. Our driver was a gentleman named David and he was most accommodating. We had the vacation of a lifetime and want to thank you for your efforts in making it happen.

D Walsh, USA

Our company recently worked with an affinity organization in Boston, one in which President John F. Kennedy was a member. The trip to Ireland for members of this organization was to commemorate 50 years since JFK was elected to the White House with a visit to New Ross and County Wexford. Prior to our arrival, Paula took a great interest in the purpose of the visit and helped facilitate many introductions which ultimately contributed to the tremendous success of the visit. The travel arrangements were executed beautifully, and the staff (guides and drivers) were superb. The end result of our trip was that most of the participants who had never been to Ireland want to go back, and virtually every person gave rave reviews to Paula and her team. Thank you, Paula! It was a Pleasure working with you.

K Kearney, USA

We have been back a week and are still trying to “come back down to Earth” after our wonderful trip. Everyone loved the spectacular sights and kind people in Ireland in particular; thanks for the great itinerary you and Paula were able to put together for us. The kids especially loved the surfinglesson in Lahinch, biking in the Aran Islands, and the Kerry sheepdog demonstration, but I can’t thinkof a single thing that we all didn’t enjoy. We hope we are able to make a return visit sometime.

A Clarke, USA

Thank you so very much for making our trip to Ireland so memorable and so positive. The visit to Ireland was, as you promised, a wonderful experience. The sites you selected for us to visit were appropriate. The guides arranged for us were excellent, and the knowledge we gained of Ireland’s tortured history is meaningful and important to our understanding of the current state of Ireland, the development of Irish culture, and of the place of the Irish people in the modern world.

K Rushing, USA

Really, things could not have gone better… was as close to a perfect trip as one could hope for. I would have to say that Judy and Thomas “made the trip” the success it was…..they were exceptional throughout and we really bonded very well. And then there was the weather, or lack of weather! It was so perfect I was embarrassed that I had told the group to prepare for rain and windy conditions before we left……. How lucky could we get?

E Siegel, USA

Inna and I are extremely appreciative of all your time and effort, your patience and understanding, your itineraries, maps, welcome package in Dingle, phone calls, etc. We both loved Ireland and would love to return with our husbands, both of whom play golf. Inna and I were captivated by the stunning pastoral countryside, the sheer seaside cliffs, the warm and friendly people, the interestinghistory and architecture, and the exquisite cuisine - not to mention the spectacular accommodations! “Pub crawling” in Dingle and the Ballymaloe cooking demonstration were two of the many highlights.

D Kaminsky, USA

We appreciate the time & effort you & Paula spent on our trip. It was one of the best family vacations we have had & we hope to return to Ireland in the future. By far one of the most beautiful places we have seen & like everyone told us one of the friendliest people in the world! Please send our thanks & gratitude to Paula, she truly knows the best places to stay in Ireland! Thanks again forall your help, we are grateful to have had the perfect vacation! Hopefully, we will contact you soonerthan later for our next adventure!

McGetrick Familly, USA

My family and I had a wonderful time in Ireland and you made our trip so comfortable and enjoyable. I have so many things to thank you for: Pauline our Dublin Tour Guide was just what we needed to keep us going on the day of our arrival, Gerard is the ideal companion to chauffeur us around and help us enjoy all that Ireland has to offer and more (great sense of humor and wonderful judge of character), The Culloden Hotel was perfect and our suites where just what we wanted. The Cliff House is located in a wonderful village and it was so close to Youghal, where Gerard helped us find ‘relatives”.

C Stack, USA

You designed and through Gerard executed a flawless tour of southern Ireland for the Dyers and the Sheahans. We laughed and "awed" the entire week: therefore, I think we would all say that today Ireland was our favorite European country. Gerard was the perfect host and guide! Ireland is certainly an Emerald Isle, but more than that we loved the people, sheep herding, visit to Valentia, the horse farm, the many pastures of cows and sheep, the people we met along the way, the wonderful places we stayed, the food we ate, the awe landscapes, and more.
