“Dream come true”
Alice planned a wonderful trip for 2 Grandmoms who wanted a quiet trip to Ireland. Our goal was to experience the beauty and culture of Ireland. We did that and more. Ger, our driver and guide, was incredible. His knowledge of history, ancient back roads, and the love of his country added to the whole experience. We certainly hope to come back again and Alice will be who we call.
Bucket list trip to Ireland
I had a wonderful trip! Thank you Alice and Maurice for everything! Alice organized my trip including all hotels and Maurice was my tour guide and driver. Alice organized my trip to fit my short time and by myself perfectly. This trip was our bucket list but with circumstance I have to made the trip alone…Alice helped me with itinerary, booked hotel rooms and ensure all my concern.
Maurice picked me up at Dublin airport and from there my special tour begin… I spent my nights in Galway, Killarney, Dublin. I saw everything I want and many things in between! Maurice was extremely knowledgeable and knew how to get everywhere! but with my limited time I have to skip some…Thanks again for everything! I will be back .
“Top notch touring experience!”
I cannot say enough about how wonderful our trip was thanks to Experience Ireland. We had a group of 11 and I was concerned about how we were going to get everyone around to see the sites during our stay in Kerry. Alice was great to deal with and super helpful in planning our tour. Our driver (Charles) was professional, knowledgeable and an over-all great guy. He was always on-time (early, in fact!) and gave us great options regarding what to do and where to eat each day, plus knew all of the history of each place we visited.
The bus was very comfortable, too! I’m sure I will edit this review as I think of more great things to say but I wanted to post something as soon as possible after our trip. If you’re planning a trip to Ireland, this is the company you want to use. Thank you for a terrific experience!
Superb golf tournament in the Kingdom of Kerry
We have played in the Social Media Open, run by EIGT, for the last couple of years. It’s a brilliant week – fantastic golf courses, Ballybunion, Tralee and Dooks, superb friendly organization by Tom and Alice and great craic. We are fairly seasoned amateur golf tournament players and this is now our favorite week of the year. Roll on April for another crack at the dunes and winds of some of the best Links courses in Ireland.
My sister organized this trip with Alice, so I was not involved in a lot of the planning. This trip was my twin and I, along with our spouses. We have all traveled quite a bit around the world, but this was mine and my husband’s first time with a guided tour. My sister had booked another Ireland trip with this group a couple of years ago and was really happy with them. They asked questions about what we wanted to do and set up a mutually agreed upon itinerary.
Our guide was Ger (Gerard) Murphy. He was amazing. I really cannot do him justice in an on-line review. He picked us up at the airport with our individual packets (with chocolate!), was our guide for the week, and dropped us off a week later. He was able to adjust the itinerary as needed for weather, or requests. He has a degree in history and a great love of his country. He taught us so much (the difference between a castle and a tower house) about Irish history and all the sites were were seeing. He was quite simply, perfect.
We flew into Shannon and stayed in Killarney, Spanish Point, and Galway. We saw so much at all of these places. Ger had great recommendations for restaurants and places to see. We rode around in a comfortable van and soaked in the amazing views and culture while listening to Ger.
The entire trip was perfect. The planning was easy, the guide was amazing, and the country is a must-see.
“Great Irish golf experience”
Tom organizes a number of golf events in Ireland. Some are customized golf trips for any number of visitors while other are larger scale golf tournaments. His premier event, the Social Media Open is my favorite. I have participated in 4, including 3 in Ireland and one in Scotland.
The SMO is a 4 day event on 4 different Irish courses: Ballybunion Old and Cashen, Tralee and Dooks. Typically there are around 144 participants from all over the world, but mostly UKI. It is a team event playing best ball of the twosome but counting both balls on 9 & 18; a nice twist. Check out his website for details.
All events have been well organized, good value and great fun. The participants take the competition seriously but not too much where it spoils the fun. Tom will organize accommodation for those that want it, or you can do that on your own.
This event has become one of my golf highlights of the year and I always book for the next year the day it opens. I would not want to miss an event!
I am looking forward to a one week buddies trip in September to 7 courses in 7 days with everything arranged by Tom, including hotels, transportation and golf. I am sure it will be his usual high standard and unforgettable.
“Fabulous two week tour of Ireland
Our driver Pat picked us up at Dublin and our fabulous trip started. We spent an amazing two weeks touring Ireland. Pat was very knowledgeable and helped us appreciate the local customs and scenery. Every day was a new adventure. Pat was very patient with us and answered all of our questions. He was also extremely flexible about last minute changes to our scheduled stops. I would highly recommend Experience Ireland Golf & Travel to anyone who wants a customized, relaxed tour of Ireland.
