We enjoyed our trip very much. The accommodation and tour guide were both excellent. Thank you for your great service. I couldn’t have done as well on my own.

We got home last night after an amazing trip. Our five nights in Ireland were fabulous! The Perryville House was very nice and the food in Kinsale was better than we could have imagined.  The Sheen Falls in Kenmare was over the top and I wished we could have enjoyed the amenities more, but then we would have missed some of the beauty of your Emerald Isle.

Our driver/guide, Billy, was terrific. We learned so much about Ireland from his stories and descriptions of the places we visited. Billy was professional, friendly and easy to be with each and every day. I will highly recommend Small Escorted Tours and Billy to anyone considering a holiday in Ireland.

We greatly enjoyed our tour. Our driver, James, was excellent and we would highly recommend him and your services. The hotels were very good; we specially enjoyed the Killarney Park Hotel. We learned so much about Ireland from James and the places we visited and would love to return again some day.

I cannot say enough wonderful things about Ireland, the people and our trip! Thank you all for making this a wonderful trip. It was beyond my expectations!!! Of course Maurice was a huge part of the wonderful experience we had. His knowledge, passion and love for Ireland made the trip very special. He went out of his way to make sure we experience everything we wanted to. I certainly would recommend him and you to anyone going to Ireland.

Thank you for everything.

We had a wonderful time while touring in Ireland. We were very fortunate to have excellent weather during our trip. Our guide was very personable and extremely knowledgeable. We would highly recommend your service to anyone considering a visit to Ireland. Thanks to everyone on your staff, including Paul, who helped us with our itinerary.

Sadly our trip to Ireland is over. My wife and I both agree that it was the best holiday we ever had. Maurice is an unbelievable guide and source of Irish history, culture etc. He filled our days with so many side trips to places we would never find if we were on our own. We can’t wait to get back to Ireland (hopefully for a longer period of time) so that we can uncover more hidden gems.

Thanks to all your team for making our trip such a special occasion for us.

We had a wonderful time with Paul. He is a genuine Irishman who knows how to tell a good story. Thanks to you all – Anne, Helen and Paul – for the entire experience.

Our Sincerest Thanks to you (Helen) and Margaret for developing and managing our fabulous tour of your beautiful country! We were thrilled to have Jim Daly for our driver/guide and we’re quite sure there isn’t a better driver/ guide than Jim in all of Ireland!! Actually, we can’t say enough good things about him; however, Brean O’connor also did a very good job explaining and touring us through Northern Ireland.

Overall, your commitment at Small Escorted Tours of Ireland, to provide a quality travel experience was not only met but exceeded on our trip. We will definitely recommend your company to all of our friends and acquaintances who are planning (or thinking about) a trip to Ireland. We are confident they won’t be able to have a better experience with any other company!

We returned from a week long private castle hotel tour of southern Ireland and can’t say enough positive about this small company. Margaret makes scheduling your trip an awesome experience – her attention to detail and responsiveness are unsurpassed. No request too small to get her immediate help prior to your trip and the follow through making sure everything we set up actually happened was perfect.

On our trip, our guide/driver Noel Johnson regaled us with lore of Irish culture and daily life stories – his good Irish humor was brought to bear throughout the trip and his stories and running commentary were the most memorable and irreplaceable part of our journey.

Just wanted to let you know that everything was fabulous! We all enjoyed our trip very much. Jim is an excellent driver, always patient and provided excellent suggestions. His knowledge of the geography and history of Ireland is outstanding, and his recommendations for pubs/restaurants were always great.

All of the accommodations were great, especially the Merchant and Dromoland Castle. Both of those were experiences our group thoroughly enjoyed, didn’t want to leave.

The kayaking was an amazing experience and would recommend Patrick to anyone.

Biking the Greenway was great, with some shelter and several points to stop if needed. Would recommend Clew Bay also.

Thank you so much for all of your attention to detail, will be sure to recommend you on Trip Advisor.

Thank you so much for a trip of a lifetime!
