We love showing off the Ireland we know best and hearing how others experience it is pure joy. Here’s what others have to say.
Ireland is more wonderful beyond any dreams I had had. It is GREEN GREEN GREEN – there are so many shades of green.
[Elisa W, Portland Oregon]
History, food, fun and song – it was all given to us in full measure. We became Irish men. What a beautiful place. [Pat and Jean L. Bryanton, Maryland]
Having always travelled independently, I wasn’t sure how a group tour would suit me, but the confluence of vibrant, interesting, kind people Dezy and Clare brought together was an experience in itself. The “wiggle” room built into the itinerary allowed for the kind of spontaneity that I would have allotted myself, but having local guides gave those flexible moments an element of value added I’ve never achieved in my self-guided journeys. [Danielle B. McMinnville, Oregon]
Touring through Ireland with Dezy and Clare, made every day seem like we lived there all our lives. We felt at home, not just wandering tourists. The itinerary was wonderfully thought out and planned. We are ready to go again. [Linda R. Madison, Wisconsin]
It was a really “wow” trip for me and a wonderful introduction to a place I have long wanted to go. You and Dezy were great hosts – good companions and wonderful music. [Sylvia A. Madison, Wisconson]
Ha! This is the stuff myths and legends are born from! … It was a great trip. [Kevin M. Frederick, Maryland]
Dezy. I think Anne and I would be up for a sept visit about the same length 7 to 9 days. Keep us posted. We had a fabulous time. Tues night with the play and Keanes bar, Michael O’brien and Sean O’conner along with the wonderful group of people you and Clare put together will be great memories that we will always remember. [Ron and Anne E. Estero, Forida]
My tour adventure with Dezy and Clare was wonderful. Our accommodations were lovely. I enjoyed becoming good friends with our house mates, as well as the wonderful group of people that were attracted by Clare and Dezy’s warmth and hospitality. We traveled to destinations with beautiful landscape, and lovely views of wild ocean beaches. The venues for joyful Irish music, carefully selected by Dezy’s keen ear, made for delightful evenings. We experienced the warmth of Irish people, and dined in many lovely restaurants along the way. We had time for options and choices to do as we pleased. In all, it was an amazing tour, to an amazing place, with amazing people. [Nancy S. Portland, Oregon]
Tom and I had a great time in Ireland with Dezy and Clare in 2009 and 2013 – and we couldn’t recommend a better way to see Ireland. Here’s a unique opportunity to travel with Dezy – an Irish born, singer, songwriter, & entertainer.
[Tom and Barrie Z. Waldorf, Maryland]
Hello, Dezy and Clare! I hope you are continuing to have a great time in Ireland! I enjoyed myself so much… little vignettes of our trip just pop into my head and I start giggling! Wonderful! Thank you both for being such great hosts! [Elaine M. Milford, Pennsylvania]
The trip was great. The part Linda and I liked the most was the music on the west coast. I hope that Clare was not overly distressed about strong opinion after all there are songs about that. [Paco & Linda B. Indian Head, Maryland]
Ireland is green
Ireland is authentic
Ireland is peaceful
Ireland is singing
Ireland is beautiful
Dezy is Ireland
There is no better way to discover Ireland than through the eyes of Dezy. We did in 2013… and fell in love with Ireland!
[Peter and Bettina K. Germany]
This adventure began with a chance meeting in Maryland – of all things looking at a Subaru and the story began. After several days in this beautiful country I can be assured that the Lord has His hand in this journey – “yeah, yeah, yeah”!! Celebrating Pat & Jean’s 40th Anniversary in a quaint Irish Catholic church with a wonderful priest topped off by an Irish blessing was a gift from God. Summarizing what Ireland revealed to me and will be cast in my heart memory for life are:
Green – like an emerald the island is gorgeous
Sheep – various breeds dot the hillsides
Narrow windy roads – breathtaking journeys
Pubs – colorful on the outside friendly on the inside
Excellent food – a variety of fresh fish, lamb and bread (potatoes)
Rings – Kerry was a highlight with magnificent views
Kenmare – our home was charming from all aspects
Music – Irish music warms the heart and with a brew everyone joins in (Dezy was tops), Michael O’Brien and Sean – excellent!
Adventure – for the outdoorsman heart our trip was very memorable with golf and fishing
Castles and churches – a photographer’s dream “brilliant”
We learned to always look for loos – Thanks so much Dezy and Clare for an adventure of a lifetime – May the Lord continue to bless you in your journey.
