What clients said
“Thank you very much for a most memorable day, which transported us so vividly back in time and captured the essence of this ancient land. The lives of the Irish monks of long ago were opened to us, and we shared the bread and fruit which they would have eaten.
We rated the experience as excellent and we would recommend the tour to others
