"We had an outstanding time on our tour of the West of Ireland and appreciated the generous personal attention, the unique out of the way places we visited, and the beauty and serenity of the West of  Ireland.  Our tour offered us an in-depth and broad range of perspectives on Irish life and we enjoyed learning about the music, culture, and history of the Irish people."

"Thanks for a wonderful three day tour. Our only mistake was that we did not book you for six or eight days. Ireland was certainly the highlight of our European vacation.  Great scenery and friendly people. We all had such a marvellous time and saw so much in a short  few days  Each one of us is determined to return again to sample the delights of your lovely country. All the gang send their best wishes."

"I just wanted to thank you again for a great week in Ireland. It reached all our expectations. We were certainly masters of our own destiny and you brought us to so many remote locations. We were truly amazed that such beautiful places could be practically deserted during peak season. The pubs, the people and the food were all truly wonderful. We thoroughly enjoyed your stories and knowledge of Ireland. The tour was both entertaining and educational, and the scenery absolutely breathtaking. Thanks Gerry for a truly wonderful vacation."

"Thanks  for a great time in Ireland. Not having to drive and manoeuvre those narrow roads made all the difference. The tour was so relaxing and laid back with no deadlines. Everything was a joy from Hennighan’s Heritage Farm to the remote beach bar along the Atlantic coast. Were it not for you we wouldn’t have known that such wonderful places existed. I have told all my friends that your tour is a ‘must’."
David Saville, California
"We made it home safely! Thank you again for a wonderful trip to Ireland. You really made our vacation memorable and we enjoyed your company immensely. Thank you again and please keep in touch."

"Hello Gerry, Just a few lines to once again say thanks for the wonderful tour we had in Ireland. You were a great host and raconteur. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. We are still recovering from the late nights of traditional Irish music. But it was worth it all.  Kate and Susan send their regards."

Dave & Kate
"Thanks for taking us to all of those out of the way  gems that we never knew about. Every thing was perfect. And as for Tom Hennighan’s Hertiage farm, that was more than just history and heritage  – it was pure theatre."
Dave & Kate, Chicago
Brendan & Vicki Moffat
"Being the fellow who you are, we met people on every side who would stop and chat. We heard about the poor price of lamb from the farmer on his way to evening Mass, the farmer driving his cattle down the road stopped to tell us a bit about his farm, and the tobacconist in Ballina took a great deal of time with us, showing off his particular art. Finally, the craic and music in the local pub were as enjoyable as I had imagined. It could have been 1927 and the hopes that I had wrapped up in this vacation were fulfilled.

I have hundreds of snap shots and hours of video, but these moments were the highlights of our vacation. I can not thank you enough for making my dream of visiting the Ireland of my parents come true. What I can and will do is send family, friends, acquaintances and passers-by to you. And as the governor of California says, “I’ll be Back”.

Thank you for a smile that will never fade."

"Thanks to Ireland West Private Tours, we had an absolutely splendid holiday in Ireland. My sister and I have been to Ireland a number of times, and we were traveling with a friend who was on her first visit. We all three agree it was one of the best trips we’ve ever taken. You took us places off the beaten path, and regaled us with his deep and wide knowledge of Ireland’s history, arts, topography, music, politics and economics — and with many hilarious anecdotes! So, whether for a repeat or first-time visit to Ireland, we recommend Ireland West Private Tours without reservation!!"
