“A genuine Irish experience can be yours.”
Who better to plan your trip to Ireland than an insider with an Irish heritage? While visiting the Emerald Isle to meet relatives and study my lineage, I had the opportunity to see it through the eyes of the locals. This is why I'm so confident I can create the perfect trip for you: from a stout tasting at the Guinness Storehouse, to a hike around the lake at Kylemore Abbey followed by lunch of soup and Irish soda bread. With me as your guide, you'll see the most awe-inspiring scenery; like Torc Waterfall or the otherworldly Burrens. My 35 years of industry expertise mean I can create any itinerary: from luxury travel and escorted tours, to trips for young folks on a budget or adventure lovers seeking "the road less traveled." My recommendations will find you visiting the birthplace of Irish coffee, or enjoying the local lore as told by a friendly jarvey, as he navigates your Jaunty Car around picturesque Killarney. A genuine Irish experience can be yours if you only contact me today.

“While in Ireland, visit Newgrage to experience an archaeological site that is older then pyramids in Giza.”
Two decades of traveling, for both professional and personal reasons, have taken me to some of the most spectacular sights on earth. It's hard to pick a favorite, but I'd say Ireland takes the cake. From the Lakes of Killarney to hiking the Gap of Dunloe, I can show you major sightseeing highlights, wow-inducing landscapes and out-of-the-way places. From hotels to dining, sightseeing and more, we'll tailor-design an Ireland trip for the ages. Buzz me today and let's get started.

“Don't miss Dingle. Take time to walk the town and watch the fishing boats. Look for Fungie the Dolphin that escorts the fishing boats.”
Word on the street is there are forty-two shades of green to be found in Ireland, I recommend you see it for yourself! Let me help craft a trip that highlights all the beauty Ireland has to offer. From the spectacular landscape to the people and rich culture, the unique music and ancient treasures. Visiting Ireland is like stepping back in time. I can help you plan the ideal trip for you. How about a jaunty cart ride through the magnificent Killarney National Park or a visit to Trinity College and seeing the Book of Kells. And, of course, there's Dublin with its mixture of the historical and the modern. Next? Zip over to the west coast to Galway with its cobblestone streets, rugged terrain, and colorful shops. The smaller towns of Ireland are not to be missed, each unique in their own way. Dingle is a fishing harbor town of 1500 that has 52 pubs! Adare Castle and the town of Adare has its thatched roof cottages, and the Connemara Region is known for its marble mine and Gaelic language. Whether you want to stay in a castle, or a hotel or bed and breakfast, the choice is all yours. I've been certified by the Irish Tourist Board (a Shamrock Club Certificate!) as an Irish expert - so call me today and I'll help you plan just the right vacation for you.

“Getting lost may be the best thing that ever happens to you.”
Ireland…It's the one place in the world where getting lost may be the best thing that ever happens to you. I have travelled there many times and have had many wonderful experiences. Everything from playing golf (I can even recommend a caddie at Lahinch!), horseback riding in the Killarney National Forest, being "adopted" by a couple of ladies that took my husband and I to a cattle auction. Another family "adopted" us for the afternoon at the Rock of Cashel. Every trip brings something new and exciting… With bizarre lunar landscapes, the mighty Atlantic Ocean, labyrinthine caves and crystal clear waterways, Ireland's diverse landscapes will take your breath away. And the Irish people are a literary lot with a real passion for music, dance and, of course, conversation. If there's more than two people in a room, then there's more than enough to have a good time! Ahh.. Ireland, let me make it special for you with my Shamrock Club knowledge of all the ins and outs, the best cities and sing-along pubs to visit as well as the best sights and you'll be speaking no blarney when you return home! And, yes, D'Arcy is Irish!
