Our last group in summer of 2010 – our 32nd tour since 1992 – in Killarney National Park with our driver/guide, Tom Keane of CIE Tours International (Tom is in the front row, kneeling on the right)
A BIT OF BACKGROUND: To put her "travel
tips" into practice for the benefit of many travelers, "Ireland
Expert" Patricia Preston organizes
and accompanies group tours of Ireland.
Since 1992, Pat
has led a summer tour with Galway-born Msgr. Charlie
Coen, Ireland's "musical priest." In addition, Pat (along with her beloved late husband John Preston)
has also led shorter off-season group tours to Ireland in the Springtime
and the Fall. In all, almost 1,700 people have traveled with Pat on 32 different group tours.
All of our tours follow a leisurely and relaxed pace, with mostly two- or three-night
stays at each of our hotels. No packing and unpacking and no moving from
one place to another every day. Our tours are custom-designed as vacations
to savor and enjoy - splendid scenery, legendary attractions, top class
hotels, marvelous meals, and fun-filled activities. A great way to experience
the best of the Emerald Isle - the "real Ireland."
Our tours have been recommended as a "Real Deal" by the Boston Globe, Boston Herald, Charlotte Observer, Chicago Tribune, New York Newsday, Chicago Tribune, and many other papers as well as Ireland of the Welcomes magazine.
