Traveling in Ireland Tours

Have you been searching for an Ireland tour unlike any other?

  • A tour that shows you some of Ireland's most famous places while taking you off the tourist trail for experiences that most visitors to these verdant shores have never heard of?
  • A tour that moves at a relaxed pace and has the flexibility to make changes based on guest input?
  • A tour that is small enough to feel private – but large enough to be affordable?

I'd Definitely Go Again!

I so enjoyed everyone that was on our trip and I particularly liked having a small group. Having been on tours before with large busses full of people, I’ll only go with small groups from now on. Much, much better! Every place we visited was delightful. In thinking on all of it, my very favorites were the distillery tour/tasting, and the herding dog demonstration. I’d definitely do the entire trip again, but especially those two things.

First trip to Ireland

Anne and I can not thank Jody enough for making our first trip to Ireland so interesting, fun and memorable. If you want a relaxing, carefree, interesting, informative and fun time I couldn’t think of anyone better than Jody.

Thank you for the incredible tour! We truly enjoyed the experience! When we visit Ireland again (notice I say “when” not “if”), I will most certainly choose one of your tours.
