Niall was an entertaining extremely well-informed tour director & Dennis was a fantastic driver.

By Michael H on Sep 13, 2019

CIE was very professional and helpful. My only complaint would be CIE does not have tour directors meet you at the airport - most other companies we have traveled with do provide that courtesy. The trip was as described. Our tour director was one of the best I have ever traveled with.

By Yeelah S on May 06, 2012

This has been the best travel experience from beginning to end! The tour of Ireland was fantastic...guide had unbelievable knowledge and also knew when to give us infromation overload breaks. I have already recommended Affordable Tours. Hope to be traveling again, soon, using both Affordable Tours and CIE. Thanks for the great experience!

By Frances S on May 13, 2011

Great trip. Our guide was the best, so knowledgeable. The one thing I would like to change is that you stay 2 nights in the Cabra Castle. Great people to travel with, lots of laughs. This was truly the jewel of Ireland.
