There are no strangers in Ireland, only friends you’ve yet to meet!
The Emerald Isle – a phrase that truly captures Ireland’s charm. Yes, Ireland really does have forty shades of green, and an extremely hospitable people who speak a melodically poetic version of English (and Gaelic).
Whether traveling on your own in the Republic of Ireland, with a few friends or family in Northern Ireland, or in a group visiting both parts of the country, the scenery is sure to take your breath away. Majestic cliffs tower over the dramatic Atlantic coast dotted with enchanting multi-colored villages. Tranquil, sheep-dotted countryside gives a feeling of time standing still.
Both Ireland and Northern Ireland are lands of myths, legends and the gift of loquaciousness. Native storytellers entertain both locals and visitors alike with tales that are usually a blend of truth, folklore and pure, unashamed embellishment, a tradition which dates back hundreds of years. Go on… enjoy a bit of the blarney as you relax in a pub with a glass of “the black stuff” and experience the famous hospitality.
Traditional music, Celtic crosses, and proud patriots are a grand part of what makes Ireland unique. On your luxury Irish vacation you can enjoy a mixture of bustling cities like historic Dublin or rejuvenated Belfast, as well as towns and villages filled with charm and warmth and hospitality beyond compare.
Whether the north, south, or everything in between… Ireland’s magic will capture your heart and soul.

The Best Decision I Made...
They totally nailed the Literary tour of the UK and Ireland that I sought, even making recommendations of things I hadn’t thought of doing or seeing, which made the whole trip great! Working with them was the number one best decision I made when I thought about putting this trip together.
