Supplier: M11342

We are one of Ireland's best known activity companies, founded in 1994. We are a dedicated Irish based tour company offering a very wide range of tours, holidays and vacations in Ireland. We specialize in walking, hiking, cycling, golf, equestrian, fishing, self catering, self drive, Celtic and custom tours within Ireland. Our aim is to give a true insight into our native land - its Celtic traditions, myths, music, dance, and most of all its people.

There are many hidden untouched spots on this beautiful and vastly unspoiled westerly island on the periphery of Europe. Our tours and vacations are for the discerning traveler, who isn't satisfied to merely view our wild Atlantic coast from a bus. Rather he wishes to eat a gourmet picnic lunch perched on an expansive vantage point where he can smell the fresh sea spray.

Our group tours are small and our experienced local guides ensure that you get a chance to make the most of your time in Ireland. These guides are well versed on the Ireland of yesterday and today - its politics, history, flora, fauna and archeology. Our choice of accommodation reflects the nature of our groups - small family run inns and guest houses or hotels, some located in some of the most beautiful and tranquil spots in the world.

I can't say enough good things about M11342. You will have the vacation of a lifetime. Accommodations will be very nice. Most likely you will be in the same B&Bs I was in. If not, they must be of a certain quality or M11342 will not use them. Frank was my guide for this tour. He’s a history and ... view more geography teacher full time and does the tours during the summer. He’s very knowledgeable and fascinating to listen to. I had broken my wrist exactly 2 weeks before my vacation last year. I’d surgery exactly 1 week before the trip. M11342 made certain that on the 2 days that could have been a little more difficult for me with the broken wrist, that Frank had another guide to help him. Frank stayed by my side those 2 days to make certain I was safe. The itinerary was great. The Celtic Kerry Footsteps is actually an easier walking tour than the other ones I was previously on, but I had a wonderful experience. The sights were amazing! I have photos and memories that have made many of my friends envious. So much so, that they are coming with me this year. I will be vacationing with M11342 until I am too old or too ill to do it anymore. I can't imagine spending my vacation any other way. After I have gone on all their walking tours, I will simply repeat them. The value cannot be beaten. The walks, food, accommodations, entertainment, and the friendships developed are worth any price. But, actually compared to many other vacations, you will get so much more for your money by vacationing this way. Your expectations will not only be met, they will be exceeded beyond your imagination. I would love to hear from you, when you return from your vacation. I am certain you will be as happy as I always am with M11342. Also, when you call or email Jean or Kay in the office for anything at all, you will be greeted with warmth, hospitality and friendship. Everyone is so very nice. Take care and Slainte! K Madigan, USA

General Comments:
We had a great ... view more time, were never bored, and had a true cultural experience of Ireland. We wanted to really grasp Ireland, the land and the people and with your help, we were able to do that. Ireland is truly a gem and Kerry is a real adventurous place to experience that. The walking was just right for us (length, difficulty, terrain) and the guiding was fantastic. We really appreciated being off the ‘tourist’ locations and experiencing the real Ireland.

· Dan Aherne was fantastic. He knew his stuff, knew the country, has extensive hiking/climbing experience, shared Irish history and stories with us. He was kind, easy going, great sense of humour - once he got to know us, and patient. I give him highest praise for his efforts and performance – top marks. Thanks for making our trip truly top notch and memorable.
· The country, the walks, the people. The best part of our trip was walking old trails and roads, not seeing any tourists anywhere, and really experiencing an incredible variety of landscapes from ocean to rain forest. It was incredible and actually breath taking. When we talked to other visitors to Ireland (over a few pints in the pubs), we felt quite fortunate that we had seen the real Ireland, away from all the tourist traps
· I would like to commend Jean for arranging and organizing this trip for us. Everything fell into place, all accommodations were top notch, and I was able to trust that our arrangements would meet or exceed our expectations. Thanks for making sure we were taken care of and had no worries at all.
Thanks for everything. We had a great time and know we chose the best tour company. I will recommend you to others if the opportunity presents itself.
