The only group I would travel to Ireland with.
Oct 2019
We wanted to do more than just a 7 day tour, so Colleen at Irish Group Travel planned a few days in Northern Ireland (with a driver) prior to the rest of the group tour. This company is so accommodating, and every single person on staff is super friendly, knowledgeable, and just happy to help. I could not recommend them more highly. If you are thinking of going to Ireland, call this group ASAP.

Dream Vacation That Catered to Everyone's Needs
Oct 2019
I had the most wonderful experience traveling with Irish Group Travel. About two weeks before my trip I had a terrible fall and broke my right arm and had a severe sprain in my left wrist. Colleen Rush took it upon herself to make sure that I did not need to cancel my trip and made sure that I had someone to assist me at all points of the trip, even at the airport to help me load and get my luggage. The hotels that we were set up in were beautiful and clean. I have dreamed of this trip for many years and with Irish Group Travel it was made to be the most wonderful experience. I plan to return and organize a family trip with them in the near future. I would never consider using any other tour group to travel with. I traveled alone, but came home with a new set of family and friends.

We had a wonderful experience touring Ireland with Irish Travel Grouo. Our driver / tour guide, Peter, was incredible. His knowledge of every place we visited was amazing. His ability to quickly establish rapport with our group made our trip so much fun. We started the trip as a bunch of people from Delaware, Ohio and ended as a bonded group. My daughter said the best part of the trip was getting to know Peter. She missed a souvenir she wanted and it wasn’t to be found any where else we stopped. I sent Peter a text after arrived home and he got the souvenir and mailed it to us. The best part was it arrived on her birthday. Amazing service by amazing people!!!

Highly Recommend THIS Company
Oct 2019
We just got back from my dream trip to Ireland, and it was amazing - because Ireland is so beautiful, but also because we picked the hands-down-best company to tour with. Colleen is American, and understands the unique cultural needs of her American clients. William is Irish. He and his team know all the best places to go, how to get their safely, and they are all so approachable and informative. We toured in a very comfortable vehicle (with WIFI!), the hotels were top notch, and having Colleen, William, and our driver Peter there to guide us around the country just made the trip. I would 100% recommend this group, just like I would 100% travel with them again.

Exceeded all Expectations!
Jul 2019 • Friends
I toured Ireland with Irish Group Travel from 7/16 to 7/26 2019. My experience with this company exceeded all expectations. What an amazing experience. Communication with the company was seemless. Any questions I had were answered promptly. My flight was so delayed arriving in Dublin that I was a day late and they made sure to come and pick my up at the airport!! I was able to see and experience so much of the Irish culture. We saw cities, towns, countryside and seaside villages. Shopping, dining, and just meeting local people was amazing. My tour included Jameson or Guinness tours. We visited Kilkenny and had time for shopping and visiting great restaurants and pubs. Several nights with great shopping and dining were spent in Kilarney which included visiting Blarney Castle and Gardens, and shopping at Blarney Woolen Mills. We saw Irish Dancing at the Celtic Steps show, took a Jaunting Car ride through Kilarney National Park and a boat ride to tour the lake. We visited Muckross House and Gardens, Ross tower Castle and Torc Waterfalls. The scenery was simply majestic. We were able to visit the Cliffs of Moher and The Burren. Again, marvelous scenery that will take your breath away. We spent time in Galway. This town is fantastic. Shopping, pubs and music at every turn! We also spent time in Clifden and Westport. I cannot express fully how wonderful this trip and experience was with Irish Group Travel. We stayed in fantastic hotels in the heart of the city so we could walk right out of our hotel and explore. Our Tour guides and driver were simply amazing. Let me tell you that when I say that the roads in the country side of Ireland are narrow, that that description barely covers it. Our amazing driver William Barrett drove a tour bus of 40 rowdy Americans with ease and always had a great story or joke to go with the drive. I made new friends and fully plan to book with them again. If you are looking to see Ireland with ease and have a grand time doing it, please book your vacation with Irish Group Travel!! Colleen and William will take care of the rest. I plan on returning to Ireland with them asap!!
