Ireland is pure enchantment. Imagine a country with 30,000 castles. Some stand majestically and welcome you inside. A few are haunted. Others lean into lush grass while sheep graze on the walls. From Dingle Town to Dublin, music is the heartbeat of the nation. Let go and enjoy! Watch sheep dogs go through their rounds, take a countryside jaunting carriage, and savor a divine dinner show with traditional dance, song, and storytelling.  

The Cliffs of Moher are a chance to feel Nature’s raw power at her finest, while lovingly tended gardens beckon you. Taste the finest brews and whiskey in the world. Surrender to medieval Kilkenny’s spell. Your local guide is with you all the way, spinning Ireland’s secret tales. You have a driver—no stress on the roads. Your excellent lodgings are set; no worries about hidden costs. Relax! It’s time to experience the Ireland of your dreams.

"Italy Bucket List"



We recently completed our trip to Italy after walking the Camiño de Santiago. The trip included Tuscany, Sicily, and Rome with a cruise to the Holy Land between Sicily and Rome. We worked with Naomi on the original planning and Joleen on the execution. Both were exceptional to work with and both are true professionals. Every facet of the trip, from transportation to billeting to excursions, was flawlessly planned and executed. We worked with Authentic Vacations for three trips this summer, Ireland, Scotland, and Italy we could not be more pleased with the service they provided us. Thank you!

"Girl's Dream Trip Of a Lifetime"



We three Girls wanted a Dream trip of a Lifetime. We stayed for 12 Days and had our own Driver/Tour guide, who will forever be "Family" to us now. We stayed in three Castle Hotels and three other beautiful hotels. All accommodations were so different and unique in their own way. We ate our way through the Beautiful Irish countryside in mostly Pubs, suggested by our driver, Seamus. We were Never disappointed! We had the most wonderful stay we could have imagined, from larger cities to quaint towns we were treated so kindly and had a Blast! We shopped til we dropped, saw more than we could have ever guessed possible, and will have this vacation to remember and Cherish for the rest of our lives.  Thank you, Joleen, Thank you Authentic Vacations!

"Wales Vacation"



We couldn’t have asked for a better trip! Our small group had a small luxury coach, and excellent accommodations, and Ian was an outstanding guide in every way! Graham was a wonderful driver who navigated the narrow country roads with great skill! Authentic Vacations gets our 5-star rating! Brian & Esther, MA.  Thank you, Jennifer, my agency will be using Authentic Vacations, again!

"Dream Trip to Emerald Isle"



Michaela and Authentic Vacations, sharing a very positive review from my clients.   Thanks for always making me look so good. - Judy your travel advisor partner.

Hi Judy,

I think I speak for all of us when I say THANK YOU for the most wonderful Ireland trip we could have ever imagined! Each hotel and activity that Authentic Vacations selected for our stay was perfect and beyond our expectations. Our accommodations were well located, extremely comfortable, and even had great food in their restaurants! The breakfasts included were much larger than we remember typical Continental European breakfasts being. The Hawk Walk was a highlight of ours!  Our only added wish is that we would have had a full 2 weeks to fully enjoy what Ireland had to offer, and we were blown away by how nice and helpful ALL the Irish people we met were. Thank you again!!

"Anniversary Trip in Ireland"



Because of the pandemic, we waited 2 1/2 years to finally begin our dream vacation. During that time Michaela reassured me over and over again and kept me up to date on all the Covid regulations. Our trip turned out to be a once-in-a-lifetime trip thanks to Michaela's attention to detail. I can't compliment her enough. I highly recommend this agency...Thank you so much!

"Renewal of Vows in Scotland"


Alberta Canada

Our trip was amazing. It was more than I hoped for!!!! We booked our Scotland trip pre-pandemic and were so excited to finally go in September 2022. Lonna made sure everything was perfect! From booking the cutest bed and breakfasts in Stonehaven, Skye, Fort William, and Inverness, to a castle stay in Airth. The experiences included in the trip were amazing.

She answered my numerous questions with patience, suggestions, and guidance. Thank you Lonna!!! I would absolutely book through Authentic Vacations again!

"Scotland Family Vacation"



Wow does not even begin to describe our trip to Scotland! Josi was the best planner and walked us through every little bit. When the queen died and it looks like we might miss one of our tours, she was on top of it and was able to reschedule it. Her extra suggestions were what made our trip over the top! With her expertise, we were able to see everything we asked for and then some. I will certainly use her and Authentic Vacations again. We are already thinking of where our next trip will be!

"Cousins Getaway to Ireland & Scotland"



What a wonderful trip! We started planning our trip in 2019 for June 2020, but something happened to shut down the world!😅. Our original travel planner left the company, but Adina stepped in and took over and did a fantastic job. We experienced everything from quaint B &B’s to 5-star Castle hotels, the country, the city, and everything in between. It was well planned and our 15 days in Ireland and Scotland went without a hitch! Thank you, Adina, and Authentic Vacations. We will definitely use your company again when we go back!
