The tour was very well organized
We just returned from the Heart of Ireland Tour. The tour was very well organized and we saw a lot of Ireland. But what made the tour really special was our tour guide Mickie. His knowledge of the area and his great personality really put it over the top. He was so friendly and always kept us laughing. This was by far the best vacation we've had in a long time.

Had a wonderful time
Just finished the Seven Day Heart of Ireland Tour. We had a wonderful time and we had the best Tour Guide in the business Dave Spillane. His knowledge and love of his country was evident. I loved the daily lessons ranging from Irish Traditions, Customs, Sayings to the History of Ireland from ancient times to present day. Dave kept us on track and never failed to entertain us with his stories, jokes and sayings! It was a memorable experience with fabulous sights and amazing fun filled days. Dave was an expert driver in the country and in the city. Both have their challenges but we always felt safe with Dave at the wheel. My next tour will be with Celtic because of Dave and when I come back to Ireland for another tour I will look to see which ones Dave will take the lead on. — with Dave Spillane and Dan Cooney.

One of the best vacations we've ever had!!
Just returned from Ireland (7/28/2018). We had a great time. Our tour guide Micky Nolan always entertained, informed, and did whatever it took to give us one of the best vacations we've ever had. Great food and hotels was helpful, but Micky made it special. So glad we chose Celtic tours.
