Hi, I just wanted to let you know that we went on this tour for our honeymoon, and we loved every minute of it!!!! Ireland is a beautiful place and it was nice to feel some connection to our grandparents who had left Ireland so long ago. The main reason for my writing is that I wanted to recognize Tom McCoy, our guide, and Pat Hanrahan, our driver. Tom was exceptionally professional, humorous, exuberant and knowledgeable about Ireland and we learned so much from him. Pat was equally as knowledgeable as well as his exceptional driving skills. These two gentlemen made us feel right at home and that there was nothing they wouldn't do to accommodate us. God Bless them!!
