Donna with authentic vacations did an amazing job, she was incredibly customer oriented and worked very hard to help me figure out what to do in ireland and how I would do it. She took my goals and found the best ways to tackle them. I’d recommend her to anybody traveling anywhere. Amazing job Donna thank you so much!

We recently returned from a 12-day journey in Ireland. It was fabulous from start to finish…outstanding hotels, delicious food, fascinating stories from local guides…..all arranged by Lonna at Authentic Ireland (in coordination with Tauck Tours, Inc.). I would highly recommend taking a holiday in Ireland, and Lonna is the perfect person to help you arrange all of the details

We started planning our 25th anniversary trip to Ireland early in 2018. We knew we would need some assistance in pulling it all together since we had never traveled to Ireland before, so we contacted Authentic Vacations explaining our needs and they placed us in the care of Jocoya Fox-Jones. We told her what things we wanted to see, and she put together a complete package for us including all reservations for hotels and B & Bs, as well as the rental car and a one-day bus tour to Northern Ireland so we could walk across the Carrick-A-Rede rope bridge (our #1). She arranged reservations for our first night’s dinner and found us some very nice and comfortable places to stay over the 10 days we were there. Prior to booking the trip, we had a few questions which she promptly answered for us. We returned on October 19, 2018 from our 10-day trip and had an amazing trip. Everything went smoothly and there were absolutely no “glitches”. We would highly recommend her to anyone who is planning a trip to Ireland. We hope to plan to Ireland and will contact Jocoya for help.

We worked with Lonna at Authentic Ireland and she was wonderful. We adjusted our plans many times and she was patient and very helpful. She recommended hotels and a private driver - they were exceptional.

I was very happy with the whole experience. The hotels booked, recommended destinations and sights to see and the rental car all exceeded expectations. It was very easy to book the trip with this company. The consultant I worked with was very friendly and professional. I highly recommend this company.

We highly recommend Authentic Vacations. Heather was our consultant and she was fantastic. From the minute we stepped off the plane and got into a taxi and went to our first hotel to the 7th hotel and everything in between was absolutely perfect. We did not have one problem, concern or hiccup! Heather took care of every detail. She gave us so many tips and suggestions that truly helped us throughout our 11 day trip to Ireland. If anyone is thinking about going to Ireland, make sure you contact Authentic Vacations. Just perfect!!!!!

Awesome trip. Well planned out. We saw and did many exciting things. Looking forward to our next trip....
Review by JosephJ Vizgirdas1 year ago
Our Ireland trip was absolutely fantastically wonderful. We enjoyed every last minute and everything went as planned. Our accommodations were very, very nice. We have only the kindest and fondest words for all of our hosts, and of course, some places were a little fancier than others. However, that was part of the plan. Our favorites were the two farm houses which were were quite different from each other, but both memorable experiences. It is so good to visit a country where US citizens are welcomed and treated so nicely. We very highly recommend Authentic Ireland for assisting us with our arrangements, as we are most pleased with our experience. Thank you!

We had a fantastic trip to Ireland. Maggie treated us great and was always there when we needed her. I would recommend Authentic Ireland to anyone.
Review by Kamahl1 year ago
Most wonderful vacation ever! The people on the tour (to a one) and the people of Ireland were easy going, fun, and open to each other. We saw extremely beautiful places, heard about the history of the places we saw through a very knowledgeable and humorous Tour Director and Driver. The hotels and meals were the best! Would go back and stay longer at the drop of a hat. Our booking agent, Jocoya, was great to deal with and she took care of every detail of our booking and answered any questions or responded to concerns in a timely fashion prior to and throughout our trip. Authentic Ireland met all of our needs and we will hopefully get to work with them again. Gerry S. and Pam B. (US, MN)

This will be our second trip that we have booked with them and we are very excited. Will definitely recommend this travel agency to everyone wanting to travel! Jocoya has been our travel agency for 2 times now, and I absolutely love working with her.

Authentic Ireland planned the best trip for our Family to tour Ireland. We were celebrating our 45th wedding anniversary and believe me this is to remember in all aspects. Our accommodations were excellent the staff at the hotels were very friendly and helpful wanting to make sure we had everything we needed. The tours they suggested and planned were awesome. We would definitely recommend them if you are planning a trip to Ireland!!

Authentic Ireland Vacations simply delivered the dream vacation. Our travel agent, Alaina, was very knowledgeable of Ireland and tailored our trip to perfection. I will be using them again in the future
Review by Jameshenryeades Mumovic1 year ago
Megan did an outstanding job of creating a custom 3-week vacation based on the information I provided to her. We basically toured the entire island in a clock-wise direction. All of the accommodations were outstanding! Although this was a self-drive trip (which certainly is a trip, driving in Ireland!) but Megan provided numerous points of interest for each of our 11 destinations. I felt the tour was reasonably priced and it went off without a hitch. Megan's attention to detail was fantastic. I would highly recommend Authentic Vacations and I would definitely use them again for any future trips to Ireland or the UK!

The Irish reputation of sympathy and friendliness is entirely deserved.
The Authentic Ireland personalized service was fully to our satisfaction. We couldn't expect better, everything went fine and we shall be back for sure.

Second time using Authentic Ireland and Lauren. Will continue to do so! Easy to pay off the vacation of your dreams. Everything we hoped it would be and more with beautiful accommodations and great sight seeing recommendations! Best part is, when you get there everything is paid for but your food and gas! Oh, and souveniers of course:)

Amazing!! My now wife and I were looking for a honeymoon spot and came across Authenic Ireland by chance and saw the opportunity to be able to stay in castles and/or manors. We contacted them and then got it all planned within a few emails with Maggie. It was easy to setup, once it got close, she emailed us travel documents and the whole 9 day honeymoon went without an issue. We got a rental car with insurance included in the package deal, beautiful rooms throughout our trip, everything that was promised is what we received and more! She made sure to include with the reservations that it was our honeymoon and most of the places gave us some special perks during our stay with them.
