Insight Focus on Ireland was a great trip. The tour director, Katie, was fantastic and very knowledgeable. I would definitely book another tour with Insight.

very nice tour to get a taste of Ireland food, scenery, and culture; also the food was excellent.

We really enjoyed our tour Director and our driver. Both friendly and knowledgeable

We enjoyed our tour. The insight guide was good, but not quite to the level of the globus guides we have had.

This trip was advertised as a "relaxed start". We had a wake-up call each morning at 6:45 or earlier. To us, that is not a relaxed start. Plus, the hotel in Dublin did not have air conditioning. They brought us a fan but it was very hot and humid in the room( we were in Ireland during a 7 week drought and heat wave) so hard to get a full nights sleep
