We had a fantastic time in Ireland


We had a fantastic time in Ireland. The country is beautiful, the people are more than friendly and the weather was great (hardly any rain during the daytime). We can hardly wait to return and see more of your country.

Overall, the experience was great. It was super not having to deal with, or worry about the accommodations and car rental. The hotels were good and the rooms were comfortable....

It was a pleasure working with you and I will definitely recommend you to anyone that is planning a trip to Ireland.

Thank you,

We had a FABULOUS time!

Hi Gillian

Just wanted to say thanks again for your help organizing our tour. We had a FABULOUS time! I would highly recommend CIE tours and in particular our tour guide Pat, who saw to every detail and treated us like family.

Every aspect of the tour worked out perfectly.

Vivienne put together a wonderful trip for us.

Vivienne put together a wonderful trip for us. We drove nearly 1000 miles and were able to see all the things we requested, and found some real gems along the way on our own. Highly recommend near St. Patrick's Cathedral in Dublin! We picked up two as one beautiful clock was not enough!

The time and care tourireland offers is unsurpassed and I have such gratitude for all the patience, support and Irish Charm we received while planning our trip, and certainly while visiting such a marvellous country.

The Irish very friendly and welcoming.....

Hi Vivienne:

We had a great time in Ireland. Accommodations were good - we found the Irish very friendly and welcoming. Great stay in Killarney, we loved the Dingle Peninsula. Our favorite area was Doolin and Lahinch looked like a good place to stay. We rented bikes on Inishmore and it was the only day that rain got in our way - we got soaked! Thanks for your help. We were in Derry for the Fleadh - lots of music and crowds!

Two weeks ago our three couples returned from a magically, amazing 10 days in Ireland. Prior to our departure we often contacted Allison with questions about itinerary, insurance, etc. Allison always responded promptly and with insight. With her assistance we collectively built an itinerary. Bright and early one morning in Dublin, our driver, Mike, appeared in his shiny 'bus' for the six of us. To say that our 'ride' was immaculate and constantly drew stares, would be an understatement.

Mike then led us, befriended us, on a beautiful tour of southern island.

All of our desired sites we had set up with Allison were visited. Along the way anecdotal stories about the countryside were revealed. On some occasions Mike sang to us. At lunch time Mike would always make a suggestion about where to go, often joining us. Likewise, at dinner, Mike always made suggestions about places to eat, even making reservations for us! Of course we visited all of our desired sites we had set up through Allison. Yet there were others that did not appear on the itinerary but 'were in the neighborhood' that left lasting memories, perhaps sprinkled with some laughter.


None of our group had ever been on a chaffered tour. All six of us would heartily endorse the experiences and the company that led us to enjoy them. To Allison and Mike, thank-you and we wish you all the best.
