October 2023  •  6 Day Iconic Scenes

Four of us booked a 6 day Iconic Tour of Ireland. First time travelers with this tour group. I can say we thoroughly enjoyed our time with Don as our driver and Irish 'expert'. He was lively, informative and extremely helpful as we went through the tour. He kept us up-to-date on the daily events and prepared us for the next day. We would definitely book again with My Ireland Tours. I'd also like to mention the office help we received from Shannon was great. Thank you all for making our trip special and memorable!

October 2023  •  6 Day Iconic Scenes

We did the 6 day Iconic Ireland tour coming from United States for the first time and John was our guide. John is such a wonderful person and so knowledgeable we could have never seen the amazing scenes without his experience and AMAZING driving skills. He adjusted our schedule a few days to give us the chance to see even more amazing things in Ireland. The bus was very clean and all the people on the bus were so much fun. The hotels were clean and safe. We were so happy with the entire experience and will definitely use the tour company again. Thank you so much again. Eileen and Rich.

October 2023  •  6 Day Iconic Scenes

My group of 6 had a wonderful time on our 5 night Iconic Scenes of Ireland tour. Damian our guide was a treasure trove of information and a delight with a great sense of humor. A tropical storm didn't keep him from showing us around the Ring of Kerry. We were able to see many highlights of the country including the Cliffs of Moher, Glendalough, Blarney Castle, and Galway. My Ireland tour made everything so easy from airport transfers, to accommodations, to general communication. Greatly recommend

October 2023  •  6 Day Iconic Scenes

Our family traveled to Ireland and took the 6-day Iconic Ireland tour and it was everything beyond our expectations. Our tour guide was helpful, friendly and extremely entertaining. Johnny made the tour enjoyable for even my children. I strongly recommend using the company for your tour.

October 2023  •  6 Day Iconic Scenes

6 day Iconic tour. Could not have asked for a better time or service. WONDERFUL

September 2023  •  6 Day Iconic Scenes

Colum was our guide and he has the gift of gab! We learned Irish history, heard hilarious tales and music. The tour is comprehensive while being relaxed. No rush, just fun and education. The accommodations were wonderful, the meals excellent and often enough that a snack was all we needed between. Our group was bonded by rhe end. Colum is a very competent driver and was also calm and respectful of other drivers. I felt safe and cared for at all times. I would go anywhere with My Ireland Tour.

September 2023  •  6 Day Iconic Scenes

Thank you for an amazing tour! Our family really enjoyed the 6-Day Iconic Scenes of Ireland Tour. Our tour guide/driver, George, was excellent!! He was so knowledgeable, thoughtful, and entertaining, sharing his knowledge of both historical events and modern Ireland. The days were very long, but because of this, we were able to see so much in just five days!! The coach bus was modern and not overcrowded, so everyone had an ample amount of space. Glendalough, Galway, The Cliffs of Moher, The Ring of Kerry, Killarney and Blarney Castle.....all stunningly beautiful!! It's hard to pick a favorite! We can't wait to visit again someday. Thank you for exceeding our expectations and being a part of life long memories made.

September 2023  •  6 Day Iconic Scenes

We recently returned from the 6 Day Iconic Ireland tour. My wife, myself and 2 of our grown sons (both in their 20s) took the tour. Our driver and guide, Sean was extremely knowledgeable and provided us with a vast amount of Irish history along the way. Sean was thoughtful, kind, and patient. He was also an excellent driver despite the narrow, curvy roads. The tour included a variety of sites in the 6 days, giving us a taste of many different things. We all enjoyed it immensely and I would highly recommend this tour to anyone wanting to see Ireland.

September 2023  •  6 Day Iconic Scenes

I can't recommend My Ireland Tour highly enough! We just returned from the 6-Day Iconic Scenes of Ireland tour, and it was more amazing than I could have hoped. Our guide, Sean, was so kind and knowledgable. He made our experience truly special. We went with my mom for her 80th birthday and it was a bucket list dream come true for her. We would not hesitate to use My Ireland Tour again.

August 2023  •  6 Day Iconic Scenes

We just returned from our 6 Day Iconic Scenes of Ireland Tour. This was our first time traveling with a tour group. We thoroughly enjoyed it! Everyone was friendly and prompt. Our Driver-Guide was Austin McArdle. He took great care of us. He shared his personal stories and had great knowledge of the culture. This was a terrific tour with lots to see. We had planned visits and time on our own to explore. I highly recommend My Ireland Tour Company. Cheers!

July 2023  •  6 Day Iconic Scenes

I recently returned from the 6-day Iconic Scenes of Ireland tour. I was traveling with my husband and our 14 year-old son. We all enjoyed the tour so much. We felt that it was very well paced - we were able to see a lot of the different regions of Ireland and hit the highlights, but it never felt overwhelming or exhausting. There was always time to relax with a drink in a pub or enjoy a leisurely meal or do some exploring on our own. We also liked that, while a couple of the attractions we visited had guided tours, we weren't herded around as a group the entire time. Many times, we were dropped off at a location and told what time to meet back on the bus, but then we could decide what we wanted to do/see at that particular place (whether it was a town/city or someplace like the Blarney Castle or Cliffs of Moher). I appreciated the balance between a structured itinerary and some freedom within that framework. Our driver/guide, Brian, was friendly, helpful, always in good spirits, and he was an excellent driver, navigating the winding cliffs and corkscrew turns on narrow roads with ease! He was very knowledgeable about Ireland and shared helpful tidbits of history, local culture and language, and Irish music along the way. The coach bus was spacious and very comfortable with large windows, air conditioning, footrests, and plush seats. We had 23 people on the tour and the bus could have fit twice as many, so plenty of room to spread out and relax. The time on the coach was a great time to catch a catnap or take in the gorgeous scenery. The hotels we stayed at were modern and comfortable, and most importantly, they were centrally located near restaurants and other attractions. In Dublin, we were able to walk to St. Stephen's Green, Trinity College, Grafton Street, which was so convenient. The hub-and-spoke format of the tour itinerary was great because we only had to move hotels one time, but still got to see a lot of the country. Everything was generally well organized and ran smoothly, which made for a stress-free trip! I wouldn't hesitate to go on another My Ireland Tour trip, and I will certainly recommend them to others.

July 2023  •  6 Day Iconic Scenes

Thank you for a wonderful experience! Every aspect of the 6-Day Iconic Scenes Tour exceeded our expectations. Our tour guide and driver, Garey Goddard, was fantastic. He provided a wealth of interesting information, and ran our tour precisely and perfectly. The pre-trip communications with Keith O'Driscoll were perfect as well. My husband and I recommend this tour very highly, and hope to take another My Ireland Tour in our future travels.

July 2023  •  6 Day Iconic Scenes

What a great tour! This trip was everything I hoped it would be. We packed a lot into 6 days but I also felt that we had plenty of free time. Our driver, Cathal, was very knowledgeable and answered our questions. The hotels were nice and and the food was fantastic. If you have never been to the island before (like me), I would highly recommend My Ireland Tour. I cannot wait to return to Ireland! What wonderful memories.

June 2023  •  6 Day Iconic Scenes

I took the 6 Day Iconic Scenes Tour, and it was perfect in every way! The hotels were wonderful and well located for individual sightseeing time, and the itinerary gave a beautiful overview of this lovely country. Liam was an exceptional tour guide. His broad sweep and depth of knowledge of seemingly every aspect of Irish history and culture assured that we came away with new understandings and appreciation of Ireland and its people. My father's people are all from County Cork, so traveling to Ireland was a lifelong dream of mine. I am so grateful for such an outstanding experience! Thanks Tony!

June 2023  •  6 Day Iconic Scenes

I did the 6 day Highlights of Ireland Tour and had a great time. Liam our tour guide was awesome and very knowledgeable. He was also quite funny. The only reason I gave them 4 stars instead of 5 is because there were a few small things I would have done differently or added. For example I have been on tours where they provided a bottle of water each day just as an added touch. Also, the first day there was a little confusion and we didn't get very clear instructions on following Liam to some of the sites we visited, but when day two kicked things were a bit more organized. I will definitely use this company again when I return to Ireland. I also want to mention that Liam went out of his way to drop those of us who were returning to Dublin at various locations on the last day of the tour. He could have easily just dropped us in a central location but he tried to get us as close to where we needed to be as possible.

June 2023  •  6 Day Iconic Scenes

this trip was my dream trip, a birthday present from my daughter. We did the 6 day Iconic tour with guide/driver Liam Finnigan and I can't say enough about the wonderful experience he gave us with his excellent knowledge of the history, culture and stories, we were even entertained one day by him singing a couple of Irish ballads, a very talented man. the hotels where top notch with wonderful staff and facilities, my favorite time was travelling the Ring of Kerry, oh the views, superb to say the least, loved Limerick, Killarney, Blarney, etc. I left my heart in Ireland, will never forget this memorable trip, the people, so kind and friendly, and most of all the landscape, breathtaking. I would whole-heartedly recommend 'My Ireland Tours' , already have. thank you so much, Sincerely, Pamela Newton

May 2023  •  6 Day Iconic Scenes

My family and I had a wonderful time on the 6 day Iconic Scenes of Ireland tour. Our guide and driver was Ben Sullivan and he made it spectacular! He was so generous, kind, and of course entertaining! We had beautiful weather and saw SO much in 6 days! We would have liked to spend less time on the bus and more at some of the sites, but that is to be expected with a short tour and lots of stops. Overall we were very pleased and would do it again!

April 2023  •  6 Day Iconic Scenes

My wife and I booked the '6-Day Iconic Scenes of Ireland' tour for our much delayed honeymoon (we got married during COVID), and it was absolutely fantastic. From the first moment we landed in Dublin airport to leaving Shannon airport, 'My Ireland Tour' took care of us and not once did we ever feel lost or unsafe. BIG shout out to Tom Lavin as our driver/tour guide. He was very knowledgeable, engaging, friendly, and a terrific driver. The trip honestly was great BECAUSE of him. When you are with 24 other people for 6 days, and lots of moving parts, its great to have a calm and collected guide like Tom. His humor had my wife and I in stiches at times. The hotels we went to (Clayton Hotel) did its job. They were clean, the staff was welcoming, and the food was OK. Nothing to right home about, so I would recommend trying out the local restaurants nearby. Even though it was technically 5 days worth of a trip (the 6th day is transporting back to the airport), there were lots of sites we went to. Highlights were: Guinness, EPIC Irish Migration Museum, Cliff Of Moher, Ring of Kerry, and kissing the Blarney Stone. We were lucky in that the weather was fantastic and it never rained and had sunny skies. Even so, I would be prepared to bring waterproof pants/boots and rain jacket. It is quite windy in Cliff Of Moher, so I would definitely layer up on that day. The coach that we were on were also comfortable. Although we spent many hours in the coach, it didn't feel too bad since Tom gave us plenty of stops along the way to stretch our legs and buy some food to eat. Finally, it was quite bitter sweet leaving Ireland. The people, food, history, and landscape, were all beautiful and my wife and I are already planning for more trips there. Thank you 'My Ireland Tour' for making this possible!

March 2023  •  6 Day Iconic Scenes

Excellent 6 day tour. Pat was our guide and he was knowledgeable, friendly, and helpful. Only thing I'd change is to add an extra hour at the Emigration museum location. Thanks for a great time!

October 2022  •  6 Day Iconic Scenes

We took the 6 day iconic Scenes of Ireland tour. It was great, Raymond our driver was wonderful, the tour sites were perfect and the whole trip was organized and executed very well. The only reason I am not giving 5 stars( I would give it 4.5) is I am not really sure why we spent three of the nights in Limerick City. There is not much night life at all so we spent most nights in the hotel(as did most of the other folks on our tour) Obviously I don't know a lot about the logistics of orchestrating a tour but Limerick does not seem to be the best 'base camp' for the locations we visited from there as they were quite far from the hotel. Since we were such a small group I feel like there could have been better lodging options location wise. Other than that it was a wonderful taste of Ireland, we will definitely return and will use My Ireland tour again.

October 2022  •  6 Day Iconic Scenes

I recently returned from the 6 day Iconic Scenes of Ireland tour. Having never been to Ireland before, this was a great introduction and allowed us to see many sites and attractions. Our tour guide, John Dennany was excellent and allowed flexibility with the itinerary. He went out of his way to make sure everyone was happy and taken care of. The hotel accommodations at Hotel Clayton in Dublin and Limerick exceeded expectations. I will definitely be coming back and checking out another My Ireland Tour!

September 2022  •  6 Day Iconic Scenes

I took the six day iconic tour of Ireland with Brian as our driver & guide. Brian was an excellent driver on the narrow roads along the Ring of Kerry. He added history & local knowledge to the tour to ensure we learnt about Ireland and its people on the journey. Some days were long but always enjoyable and we were blessed with sunny weather for the whole tour. I would highly recommend this company for travelling in Ireland.

September 2022  •  6 Day Iconic Scenes

My father has always wanted to see Ireland (me too), so we booked the 6-Day Iconic Scenes of Ireland tour and had an absolutely wonderful time. Our driver was Brian Rawlings and was the star of the tour. This man was hilarious, an excellent driver (those roads are narrow!), and extremely passionate about Ireland's history and people. If I entered an Irish trivia competition I would decimate everyone with the knowledge that Brian bestowed upon me. I was debating renting a car and touring the island on our own, but I'm glad I went with the bus tour. Everything was handled for us and it allowed us to lean back and truly enjoy the experience. Hotels were perfect, food was amazing. Be prepared for a bit of walking if you're not used to that. It's good for ye. I can't recommend My Ireland Tour enough. If you're on the fence, buy the tickets and you won't be disappointed.

September 2022  •  6 Day Iconic Scenes

We took the six day tour of southern Ireland with George as our driver / guide. This tour was very well organised and George was excellent in providing history, local knowledge and he went the extra mile in making sure we all had a good time. I would highly recommend this company for travelling in Ireland and we hope to return in the near future to see more of this beautiful country!

August 2022  •  6 Day Iconic Scenes

We were on the 6 Day Iconic tour in early July, and it was fantastic! We knew from the start that it was going to be a short introduction to Ireland and what in introduction! We have already begun to plan our next trip with My Ireland Tour! Our guide/driver was Garey Goddard, he did a fantastic job! Garey was knowledgeable and funny! Our bus was very nice, and we loved that the group size meant that it wasn't packed. We had room to spread out and relax. Overall, a wonderful trip! Thanks, My Ireland Tour!!

July 2022  •  6 Day Iconic Scenes

We enjoyed our 6-day Iconic Scenes of Ireland Tour immensely. The tour packs a lot of sightseeing into less than a week. The pace is quick, but with plenty of stops to get out and explore. Our guide David is both knowledgable and funny, sprinkling his geographic, historical and social insights with no small amount of humor. I highly recommend the experience.

June 2022  •  6 Day Iconic Scenes

I can't really add much to the great reviews of MyIreland Tours that I have seen! We did the 6 day tour recently and had a wonderful time, so well organized, comfortable bus, great sights, great communication with the company before we left. Special mention of our driver David- he was organized, funny, helpful, a great driver, so informative about Irish history and landmarks, and there was not a question that he couldn't answer!

June 2022  •  6 Day Iconic Scenes

This was an outstanding tour from start to finish! Shannon kept us informed and helped with questions before we left. Once on the trip Pat P., our driver, was excellent. He was a wealth of information and kept the tour running smooth. It also helped that he was absolutely hilarious! We plan on traveling to Ireland again and will definitely use this company!

June 2022  •  6 Day Iconic Scenes

We did the 6 day Iconic tour with David as our driver and had a great time. The weather was perfect for the week and the tour was well organized. The Clayton Hotels we stayed at were also very pleasant.

June 2022  •  6 Day Iconic Scenes

My husband and I recently returned from the six-day Iconic Ireland Tour, which we had signed up for to celebrate our fortieth wedding anniversary. It did not disappoint! Neither of us had been to Ireland before, and found it very interesting, engaging, and beautiful. Our driver/guide, Kieran, was knowledgeable, flexible, and very fun. I felt that it was a nice mix of 'tour and visit' time plus adequate 'on-your-own' time. It was also an excellent mix of participants--different ages, different backgrounds. I really appreciated that. In addition, I was impressed by how quickly the tour company got back to me whenever I had questions. All in all, for many reasons, it was a great trip! Thanks so much for a wonderful and memorable experience, 'My Ireland Tours.'

We had a fantastic trip with Liam and Adrian. This was our first trip to Ireland, and they gave us a memorable introduction to this magical island. We were on the 6 day tour, and learned so much! The tour coach was very comfortable and spacious, hotels were super as well. Liam and Adrian went above and beyond to make everyone's experience personal. We can't thank you enough for sharing your home with us!

May 2022  •  6 Day Iconic Scenes

We recently did the 6 Day Iconic Scenes of Ireland 2022. It was excellent. Ben was a fantastic guide and driver. They were really accommodating, even dropped us in Dublin after a trip so we did not need to get an Uber. The Clayton Hotel was great, their breakfast was amazing. We loved every stop and every scenic view on this our. Ben was entertaining and a very good singer. He can tell you everything about his country and his home town. I would highly recommend this to anyone looking to get their first glimpse of Ireland. We packed it in. The Jameson tour was awesome and I don't even care about Whiskey. Now I am drinking Jameson and Ginger with a splash of lime. The drive is so relaxing I was able to catch up on my sleep and felt so comfortable. I cannot say enough positive things. We are usually cruisers this was our first tour and we will be back to take another one with them! Just do it!!!!!

September 2019  •  6 Day Iconic Scenes

We just returned from the Six Day Iconic Scenes of Ireland Tour. As we were considering this tour and after booking it, Martina Hegarty answered several questions promptly and graciously. Brian Treanor, our driver/guide, happily took us from the airport to our splendid hotel, introducing us to Ireland and answering questions. During each and every day of our excursion, it was clear that Brian's goal was to make everyone's trip comfortable and memorable. His narrations were so interesting that I took notes, which I will share with family. Additionally, we were impressed with his superb driving skills. This six-day tour skillfully highlights the most popular attractions in Ireland. Our accommodations were terrific. We confidently recommend My Ireland Tours.

July 2019  •  6 Day Iconic Scenes

We traveled as a couple in late June 2019. Touring is a great way to see the country. Ben, our Tour Guide and driver, was a passionate Irishman whose love for all things Irish, helped bring the Tour alive. From geology to history to agriculture and music, Ben gave us more than a drive through the country. He was a cultural guide who shared his love of his country. The countryside, towns and villages and the folk we met along the way made the journey one to remember. We were blessed with a beautiful bunch of people on the Tour which made for some lively happy times on and off the bus. This was our first Tour ever and it was a very good experience. You must be ready for the up-and-go nature of Touring; there's not much time to spend anywhere, but there are restful times to be had on the bus and the hotel accommodation was good - terrific in Dublin and good in Limerick. We would recommend the Tour to anyone wanting to see a big swathe of the country and if you're lucky enough to get Ben, that's a bonus! Thanks to all involved.

July 2019  •  6 Day Iconic Scenes

10 of us ,2 couples and 6 adult children in their 20's, took the 6 day iconic tour. Ben was a very charming guide. We loved his singing and his stories. Wish we had more time at a few spots but loved this trip. Glad our flight was delayed a day so we spent more time in Dublin.

June 2019  •  6 Day Iconic Scenes

We had an absolutely incredible time during our 6-Day Iconic Tour of Ireland during June 2019. We began planning the trip more than 6 months in advance and Martina was very helpful during the process to include assisting us in reserving hotel rooms for additional nights. Our tour guide/driver - Kieran was amazing. Not only was he a very impressive driver as he maneuvered the charter bus around the country but his knowledge of Ireland ranged from agriculture, to industry, to economic to an amazing knowledge of Irish history to include Viking history of which I knew nothing. We were lucky to have a great group to travel with - I don't recall anyone complaining about a single thing for the entire trip which is rare when you have 22 adults together. I don't think we can give Kieran credit for the weather but we were very fortunate to have perfect weather each day so as to be comfortable and to be able to enjoy viewing the Cliffs of Moher and the Ring of Kerry as well as Blarney Caste. We didn't know anything about the monastery at Glendalough before going and I actually thought a monastery would be boring - BUT - we were blown away by this place, the history, the beauty, the spiritual feeling you couldn't help but get there. We loved it, it was worth the cost and worth the planning.

June 2019  •  6 Day Iconic Scenes

I just returned with my family from the 6 Day Iconic Scenes tour and we had an amazing time! There were 8 of us in total and no one had any complaints... if you knew my family you'd realize how earth shattering this is! When looking for a tour company I looked for every review possible on MIT and was slightly skeptical at the lack of low reviews ,this was my first time taking an actual tour with a guide and schedule), but in reading almost every review I took a chance on MIT and do not regret it. Our tour guide/driver was Liam Finnegan and he gets a 15/10. His passion, charisma, and knowledge are off the charts! I would select another tour of his any day of the week. Thank you MIT for a phenomenal family trip, you have 8 new fans and promoters!

October 2018  •  6 Day Iconic Scenes

Recently returned from a wonderful 6 day tour. Our driver/guide, Kieran, was outstanding in every way. I learned so much about Ireland and its history. The group was really fun together - it somehow blended seamlessly. Martina arranged everything perfectly, including our stay after the tour in Dublin. Thanks so much for a truly exhilarating time. I hope to return!

October 2018  •  6 Day Iconic Scenes

My Ireland's hub and spoke tour was the perfect fit for my husband, myself and my over 80 year old mother in law who had never traveled out of country before. The fact that you only move hotels once during your 6 days makes for a more restful trip overall. Yet, you do not feel short changed in what you see; you still see Dublin, parts of the Wicklow Mountains, Galway, etc. You still hit all the high lights. It really was just perfect for us. Our guide and driver, Garry Horan, could not have been more pleasant. He made us feel very safe and comfortable with his driving skills, and with the comfort and cleanliness of the bus. He was a font of knowledge of Irish history . His humor and outgoing personality helped create a camaraderie among all the passengers on the bus, which in turn added to the wonderful experience. He made each and every passenger feel taken care of. I highly recommend this tour to one and all.

July 2017  •  6 Day Iconic Scenes

My husband and I took the 6 Day Iconic Tour and had a wonderful time. The tour itself covered everything we wanted to see and for us, it was the perfect length. My Ireland Tours was all-out professional from the start. Our driver was waiting for us at the airport, the bus was comfortable, extra bonus that all the other people on our tour were friendly and fun. And a huge shout out to our driver, Enda who was not only knowledgeable but extremely personable.
