"Wonderful Ireland, Golf, Site Seeing, Relaxation"

Debbie

Texas

We had a wonderful experience visiting Ireland for the first time. All of the scheduled accommodations, sites and activities, golf courses and suggested restaurant were excellent. The people we met were very helpful and welcoming.

"Ireland Business/Vacation"

Harold

Cape Cod

Our agent, Jennifer, did an outstanding job organizing our trip. We had originally planned for 4 days, but hiring a driver was too expensive, and there were no rental cars available. She planned a train trip from Dublin to Kilkenny (absolutely great town- highly recommend a visit there) and then back to Dublin to stay in the Clontarf Castle. Everything went very smoothly and her recommendations were perfect. The Irish were/are the friendliest people we've ever met, and we can't wait to return. When we do, we will use Authentic Vacations again!

"Ireland Birthday Celebration"

Candace

MN

I cannot say enough great things about Authentic Vacations! My husband and I had an amazing time in Ireland. They set up everything for us, from staying in 4-star hotels to amazing castles. They had sites to see included in our package and suggestions for other places to go. From the day we landed in Dublin, to getting our rental car and navigating the southern coast of Ireland, it went smoothly. It was a trip of a lifetime! We are already talking about our next adventure and we will definitely go through Authentic Vacations!

"Scotland our New Second Home"

JoAnne

Texas

What began four years ago, this trip had several stops and starts. But when we finally boarded the plane it was a perfect vacation.

Rosslyn Chapel, Glamis Games, Cauloudian and the Amazing William Wallace Monument, Loch Ness, and the Jacobite Train did not disappoint. Finding more information about my family topped the list.

We had a couple of issues with lodging but was worked out. We are already looking forward to going back.

Liz, at Atholl House, in Inverness. is my new best friend

Scotland is my new second home!

Thank you, Lonna, and the whole team at Authentic Vacations for taking this journey with us.

"Game of Thrones Family Vacation"

Laura R.

Ireland

We had a great time on our 6-day Game of Thrones sightseeing tour. We appreciated that they took care of setting us up with 4 different hotels and a rental car, plus a couple of site-seeing reservations and suggestions on other things to do. 

"Wonderful Ireland Vacation"

Authentic Vacations gave my agency and me exceptional service, support, and knowledge base from all team members!  

"Brothers trip to Ireland for ancestry search and golf"

Sharon L.

NV

Adina did an excellent job of making our dream trip come true after 2 years of rescheduling. All of the accommodations, especially Harvey's Point, the most beautiful, were convenient and offered wonderful breakfasts. We were greeted at the airport in Dublin by a driver even though our flight was very late getting in. Our 11-day tour had very professional drivers, especially Patsy who was with us for 8 days. 3 days of golf were booked for us, afternoon tea at Ashford castle, and entrance to Kylemore abbey. We loved Bushmills Inn in Northern Ireland and the Giant's Causeway. There were little hiccups along the way but Authentic always came through. This is the 2nd trip I have booked with Authentic Vacations and I am getting ready to plan a 3rd! I would definitely recommend this company!
