Random Fact About Me: I hold a BA degree in History

Both of my parents are from Ireland, as is my wife. That means a lot of family in Ireland! Entering my 16th year with Crystal Travel and Tours,  I still believe traveling is such an important thing to do.

By going out and exploring the world, we get to see and experience all the wonderful variety around the world. Being able to experience new places and cultures makes travel so rewarding and enjoyable, and it also can be quite educational.

My favorite part of Ireland is Galway City, as it has a great mix of all that Ireland has to offer. Galway City is situated in close proximity to the countryside as well as the seaside. Galway exudes a strong pride in traditions such as Irish music and the Irish language, yet also displays a very modern and trendy side as well. It is great mix of old and new, and a place where the Irish language and traditional music have a very strong presence.

Outside of Ireland, my favorite place is Sevilla in Spain. As a student of history, I found Sevilla to offer so much of historical interest packed into a small city. As well the people of the city are warm and friendly to visitors, and the city itself has a great energy to it.

Hi Sean, The vacation was just awesome!!! Loved the CIE tour guide Liam Murray - he was so knowledgeable & kind. We had the best week, the weather was wonderfully mild & sunny with a few showers, except for the one day we were in Dublin. The hotels were all top shelf, the beds so comfortable. Enjoyed the scenery - this was a very active trip, we saw so much. Buses were comfy also. All in all we would definitely book another trip with Crystal Travel & CIE Tours. Seems we planned this ages ago & now in a blink of an eye its over. Ireland is a gorgeous country. We do plan to go back. I thank you for all you did for us to have an enjoyable trip.

Hi Sean, We returned from our wonderful trip to Ireland yesterday afternoon. I wanted to write to thank you for your care in planning such a great trip for us. I feel as if we made the most of our eight days there - seeing various key parts of the “Wild Atlantic Way”. The accommodations you arranged were also top notch and very comfortable. We loved the varied experience of the Delphi Lodge and communal dining. I sat with people from Germany, Zimbabwe and South Africa! We also met some very nice Americans. The driving was another interesting experience – I felt as if I was riding down my driveway at 60 mph! Agh! I had the map covering my face the entire first day there . . . but we managed to end our vacation without a scratch. Your Ireland is beautiful, Sean, and we so enjoyed our time there. We will be in touch to ask for your help again in planning our next great adventure.
