Although I emigrated when I was only 15, I still have a great love of Ireland and have not lost my accent. I spent 25 years with Eastern Airlines before going on to open Crystal Travel with my husband and we are already over 30 years here.
I still travel home to Galway regularly and love Ireland, particularly my home county and Knock, Mayo.
I enjoy making pilgrimages to Medjugorje frequently. It is a great place to reaffirm one's faith and to slow down the pace of life in a stunning location.
As a teenager I got in to the travel industry initially as I saw it as an opportunity to travel home more often. This is something that has continued to this day as I still return to Ireland at least once a year, the country I will always call home.
We really enjoyed our trip across Ireland and had a fantastic time!Staying in a variety of B&B's in different cities gave us a lot of choices for activities. The first B&B you recommend in Doolin was perfectly located and the host was great. We didn't get to spend as much time in Dublin or Belfast as we liked- but schedule cuts are a normal part of traveling. The GPS that came with the car was a lifesaver! The weather was very nice through our whole trip. We got a mix of everything, but it was mostly sunny the last few days we were there. Thanks very much for the assistance!

Thank you so much for planning and booking our family vacation in Ireland in June 2014. The itinerary you suggested, including Dublin, Killarney and Galway, provided the perfect mix of sightseeing and relaxation. The lodging accommodations were impeccable. The transportation limousine bus you arranged provided a comfortable, personalized experience for our first trip to the "Emerald Isle. "Thank you for making this a wonderful, affordable and memorable vacation.
