    This was my fourth trip to Ireland and by far the BEST with Celtic Tours!!!! The tour locations were wonderful and our tour guide, Sean was awesome!!! Sean was very educated on the country and we learned so much from him. He was very accommodating and allowed extra time where we would like to stop. I would HIGHLY recommend Celtic Tours and Sean as your guide.
