We were delighted with Ireland. Peter, our guide, helped us all to learn lots and lots of the country, including Northern Ireland. This is not only a beautiful country, its history is everywhere a person visits-from the Mounds of pre-history to the murals of Belfast to the breathtaking Cliffs of Moher. The UNESCO sites visited are truly breathtaking. The Irish people are so friendly and accommodating. This was a wonderful trip--lots of bang for the buck. Also, a person meets the nicest people on a smarTours trip!!

Our Magical Ireland Tour, was just that; magical! When we stepped into the airport our guide, Billy Murray was right there to greet us and get us moved on to the hotel. The driver we had was absolutely the best, he managed to make me relax and feel perfectly safe the whole time, even on those narrow Irish Country roads. The sites we visited were a perfect selection to get the feel of Ireland overall. The icing on the cake was the colorful and historic stories passed on by our guide. He really knows his information and was a great communicator, with an abundance of firsthand knowledge to share, as well as, answering all of our questions. One of my favorite parts of the tour was visiting the shipyard/museum in Belfast where the Titanic was built and launched, breathtaking displays! I was a little sad that we were not able to see a few small things due to rain, but that's Ireland. I say, bring an umbrella, pack a light rain jacket and join the next tour!

Smartours is an excellent company to travel with. I cannot express how much fun we had. The tour director Peter Murphy was exceptional as well as our driver Pat. The accommodations were extremely nice. This is our second tour with them and I would highly recommend them to everyone.

Karissa S

The trip of a lifetime. Never waited in a line. Exceptional hotels. Enough free time to explore on our own. Outstanding organized tours, too. I would not change a thing.

Location, location, location!!! This tour hits all the best sites in Ireland. Our tour guide and driver, Peter Murphy and Patrick Curran made this tour one I will never forget!

I just returned from Magical Ireland, 13 days starting in Dublin. This is the most enjoyable vacation I have ever taken. Ireland is the kindest country I have ever had the pleasure of visiting. The scenery was lush and green at every turn. However, the true magic of this holiday was not this gorgeous island country. The true magic was our Tour Guide/Driver, Peter Murphy. Peter Murphy is a host that made us all feel welcome, and like good friends at the Pub, we all knew by the end of our time with Peter that we are a part of the Irish family. He organized us all with a kind structure to keep us on schedule, and make sure we did not miss anything. He gave us valuable tips to maximize our enjoyment (Oh My God!!!! The Bailey’s hot chocolate). His suggestion of the horse and carriage rides in Killarney, and the Irish dancer evening option truly added to the richness of our experience. I will travel again to Ireland. And I hope everyone that chooses Magical Ireland has their vacation graced by the likes of the best Irish Ambassador Tour Guide / Driver, Peter Murphy. Thank you Smart Tours, and thank you Mr. Murphy!
