“Thanks for planning a magical tour of southwest Ireland. You packed our 8 days with so many varied and wonderful ways to experience that amazing, little country. Each night we wondered if you could top that day and you always did! For our first venture across the sea to celebrate 50 years of marriage, the whole excursion could not have been better!!! The tour group was made up of wonderful, kind, smart people with senses of humor that really enhanced our experience. All our guides were cheerful, outgoing people with deep knowledge of all aspects of the Irish culture. Dan was a superb driver/guide with ideas for more ways to enrich our entire trip…like the visit to Mackens of Ireland for free Irish coffee and the regular exposures to authentic music and dance. Dan always goes the extra mile to make tours special, a reflection of his good heart and desire to make others happy. You are wise to keep him on your team. We are trying to acclamate to views that do not include wooly sheep, ancient castles, lush or craggy mountains, complete and repeating rainbows, fifty shades of green, small-to-boulder-sized rocks, oceanside cliffs, unique cloud formations, left-hand round-a-bouts and “shopping opportunities” literally EVERWHERE!” – Linda L., Berlin, MD
“I just wanted to say I had a tremendously wonderful time on the Ireland tour. I thoroughly enjoyed all the excursions and did not feel rushed or hurried at any point during the trip. I thought the itinerary was well planned out with enough time in between to rest a little. Our Coach Driver Dan was exceptional at his job along with being an accomplished musician. I am looking forward to his CD release in the coming months. The Tour guides Karen and Frances were both knowledgable, informative,fun, and lighthearted and made the areas we explored everlasting memories. I would not hesitate to recommend Ireland RnR Tours to anyone. Thank you for providing such a well thought out trip to Emerald Isle.” – Dan McN., Berlin, MD
“I just wanted to let you know that my Ireland trip with Mike Healy was one of the best I have ever been on. It was well organized and informative, but most of all it was fun! I will definitely go again if it is offered. Mike was the perfect host and was very knowledgeable about the country of Ireland. He also had some very good connections while in Ireland that made sure we had the best time possible. My only regret was that the trip didn’t last longer! You can just sign me up now if there is another trip offered by Mike Healy!” – Kathy H., Berlin, MD
“A really great trip. We appreciated the chance to wander in some of the lovely small and picturesque towns and not have to always hit one of the tourist spots. Nice blend of leisure and structure….and Malena remembered how much she enjoyed Guinness as we all did at Curran’s Pub in Dingle.” – Jock and Malena M., Palm Beach, FL
” I have to admit that I did not know what to expect from this trip. I had been to Ireland before and couldn’t imagine how anything could top that. Needless to say, I was pleased beyond expectations! I loved every minute and everything about it!!!!! I was afforded the chance to see and do very different things than I had experienced on my first trip there. So, it was like seeing Ireland again for the first time, only through different eyes. I would do it again in a heartbeat . I felt that we got far more than our money’s worth and then some. WOW!!!” – Beverly M., Spring Valley, OH.
“Marie and I thoroughly enjoyed the Ireland tour. The Dunloe hotel was excellent, the itinerary just right with not too much on any one day and sufficient time to shop and rest a little during the trip. The bus driver, Maurice, was excellent as well as funny and informative. I enjoyed getting to the sites as much as actually visiting them. The evening entertainments that you arranged or suggested were also interesting, informative, and enjoyable. I used my day off by renting a bicycle from the hotels’ recommended vendor in Killarney and rode about 40 miles in the surrounding countryside. The roads were a little narrow in places, but most motorists were tolerant and kind. I made it without mishap and thoroughly enjoyed the day. Thanks for an enjoyable week in Ireland. Definitely worth the money and the time.” – Mike and Marie A., Little Silver, NJ.
“The Ireland tour with Mike was a terrific experience at a very reasonable cost. Mike’s knowledge of Ireland allowed him to put together a tour for us that was truly enjoyable and, at the same time, educational. The accommodations were of five star quality. We could not have been more pleased with the overall quality of the tour experience. Teresa and I have traveled fairly extensively in Europe and elsewhere and this was the best trip we have ever taken thanks to Mike’s meticulous planning and execution.” – Dick S., Lexington, KY.
“Mike and Victoria provided a first rate tour experience at reasonable cost, and they could not have been better hosts. I booked this trip to celebrate my wife’s 60th birthday and our 40th anniversary, and it was the perfect get away for us. The package they put together was a wonderful balance of rest and recuperation, coupled with a “just right” combination of exploring the highlights and beauty of the Killarney region, while allowing ample time for individual sightseeing and, of course, shopping. We covered a lot of ground and learned a great deal about the country and the area, but never felt hurried or stressed by the schedule. Their knowledge and experience of the area showed through in many ways, and their thorough preparation was obvious at every turn. We will treasure this experience the rest of our lives.” – Greg and Kathy S., The Plains, VA.
“I can’t think of a better way to see the wonderful sights of Killarney and County Kerry. The pace of the tour provided a very comfortable balance between well-coordinated sightseeing tours and leisure time to explore the area on my own. The accommodations were truly 5 Star. I would recommend this trip to anyone.” – Dave H., Alexandria, VA.
“I thought the Ireland experience was magical – everything about it. We had not been on an overseas trip in ten years. It felt nice to be really pampered. Taking that horse cart through what one of my Irish friends called “the mystical Gap of Dunloe” was in the “once in a lifetime” category. I loved it. Seeing the Ring of Kerry and the spectacular Dingle Peninsula gave me a glimpse into a lovely country that has even more to offer. After the tour, we went on to visit to other parts of the West. I would not have missed the Burren, the Cliffs of Moher, the largest of the Aran Isles (and a very rocky sea journey to get out to it, which was well worth it even in the rain and fog), and the mountains of Connemara. All the ancient stone walls… those alone were something special to see. Just makes me hope to go back and see more someday! Thank you for an outstanding trip and a chance to meet some like-minded fellow guests. Thank you for introducing us to your cousin Seamus, whose fascinating research made me remember some things I learned in graduate school studying “history from the ground up.” (Fernand Braudel). This is my kind of vacation. And it included shopping and fabulous food. What could be better!!” – Jan S., Oakton, VA
“We had a great time on the trip and want to thank you for organizing it and being such informed and friendly tour hosts. I think the itinerary and Dunloe were very well done.” – Mike S., Oakton, VA.
“A great opportunity to see Ireland close up from a terrific location. Exceptionally well run by Mike and Victoria Healy with great accommodations, great food, great touring and great fun. Go as soon as you can.” – Chuck M., Raleigh, NC.
“Our County Kerry Ireland tour was truly an unforgettable experience thanks to great planning and smooth execution of a thoroughly enjoyable schedule and venue in a gorgeous part of the Emerald Isle. Highly recommend to others!” – Harry D., Fairfax, VA.
“A true success. Absolutely the best! Thanks to all for making our Ireland trip an unforgettable experience. From meeting us at Shannon Airport, arranging transportation, to the History of Ireland presentation, the traditional Irish dancers and singers to the local pub band made everyone truly feel part of Ireland. Staying at a centrally located hotel for the week is a great idea. We have done bus tours in the past and it can become quite hectic. This way we could relax as well as partake in the desired excursions. We just loved it! A perfect trip!” – Jim B., Hunt Valley, MD.
