Ireland small group tour, 2017

Hi Sandy,

Our trip to Ireland was all we could hope for. The attention to detail, the accommodations and the itinerary choices were all exceptional - even our weather cooperated. We especially loved listening to our bus driver Joe's informative commentary. His exceptional knowledge of all things Irish and sense of humour were most enjoyable. Many thanks Sandy.

Life’s greatest memorable moments...

Ireland small group tour, 2017 

I found travelling to Ireland with Further Afield provided some of life's greatest memorable moments.  When you decide on a vacation your aspirations are always to see more than what is offered at home.  On many occasions, the plans went "beyond their duties".  They offered a fun time, with knowledge and hassle free travel experience.  



Expectations exceeded

Ireland, Small Group Tour - 2017

It was with great pleasure that we joined Further Afield Travel in September on their tour of Ireland. After reading the itinerary our expectations were high but our expectations were more than exceeded thanks in part to the personalized attention to every detail by co-owner of Further Afield Travel who accompanied us on the tour and made sure every day ran smoothly for us all.  Our bus driver/guide was incredible with an encyclopedic knowledge of all aspects of Ireland so that by the time we left we had a deep insight into Irish culture.  Five star accommodation, wonderful meals, great times.  I would not hesitate to recommend Further Afield Travel to anyone and I am sure we will be accompanying Further Afield on another adventure in the future.



A wonderful journey

Ireland Small Group Tour - 2017

I wanted to thank you for a wonderful two-week trip to Ireland. Jeff and I feel that we saw a lot in two weeks and especially liked that it wasn't all museums and castles. I think the Murphy's Pub experience, Bushmills whiskey tasting, the jaunting car ride and Merry Ploughboy's show set it apart from other itineraries. We especially enjoyed our evening at the pub in Dublin. Hopefully we can travel with you again someday.

Joe was fantastic!!

Ireland Small Group Tour - 2017

Hi Sandy,

We wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed the tour of Ireland. The small group/coach format was perfect for enjoying all the beauty of Ireland! The tour itinerary was great, we covered a lot of territory but did not feel rushed at all. The hotel accommodations were first class and the events were entertaining and lots of fun! I still don't know how Wayne won the Guinness pint pulling contest! And, of course, the bus travel is an important part of the trip. Joe was fantastic! His knowledge of Irish history, fantastic wit and lovely singing voice was a definite highlight! Thanks again, Sandy, it was a fantastic trip.

We did and saw so much!
