What Our Customers Say
This truly was a trip of a lifetime for us. I find myself looking at it and sighing, wishing we could be back there! We couldn’t have asked for a better trip and we’re already planning our return for 2015. The level of personal attention you devoted to every little detail will never be forgotten – we raised many pints of Guinness to Irish Essence Tours and to you Deborah on our trip!
─ Martha & Jim Foster and Bitsy & Bob Morales, Texas
Working with you, Deborah, to create our journey was a pleasure. From the start, you were knowledgeable and returned inquiries in a timely manner. Your insight of Ireland travel also directed us extremely well with our sightseeing choices. It was important to me to be able to speak with a live person. Otherwise, I would not have had the opportunity to meet such a wonderful person, an outstanding representative of your company.
─ Franny Kreisberg, New York
I had to write to you on this, our last day of our trip as I want to express how happy we are with everything you prepared for us. Irish Essence Tours has blown away all of our expectations for our trip to Ireland.
─ Cadence & Nicholas Sanders, Georgia, U.S.A.
Dear Deborah, We are sending this message to you, hoping that you can post it on your website so that other travellers may know what a terrific job you did for us in planning our recent trip to Ireland. In every respect, we loved the tour you planned for us. We loved where it took us; we loved what we saw, the beauty, the tranquillity, and the history of your magical country. We loved the accommodations, the B&Bs, which you thoughtfully arranged for us. We enjoyed the restaurants and pubs, many of which you recommended. Lastly, we loved the people we met. In all our travels, we have never visited a country full of warmer, more polite, welcoming people. And, you Deborah, represent Ireland, and its' people, at its' finest. Our dealings with you, your willingness & patience to listen to what we wanted, and your prompt responses, could not have been better. It was a real pleasure doing business with you. Thank you so much Deborah for the trip of a lifetime. Allen & Marilyn Herman Cincinnati, Ohio, USA September 2014

I have never thought I could see so much from just a week. Thanks to Irish Essence that was made possible. Not only did we see so many exciting and beautiful places, it was also affordable. This company is extremely professional, helpful, and also and friendly. three characteristics one would certainly look for when booking for a holiday. Most importantly, it is a reliable company. thanks and kind regards, Natalino Malta, Spain
