I would like to say that initially I was overwhelmed with planning a ten day trip to Ireland. Figuring out where to stay and what to see is a difficult task. One made even harder by the fact the country I was visiting I had not been to before and was across the ocean.
After visiting with Connie about the time frame, budget and what my interest were she came up with three different itineraries for me to review. Each one had notes to what might interest me in each town or geographic area I would be visiting. Along with that information there was the great insider tips included, great places to eat, local bars and why they are famous as a few example. I really appreciated the prompt responses to my questions and the firm’s openness to combine a couple of the itineraries together so that I could get the most out of my trip. The best thing about these notes was they were tailored to my individual tastes and helped me to maximize my enjoyment.
During the trip Connie was in constant contact with me to see how my trip was going and making herself available to me for questions or advice. As someone who works in the sales and service industry I cannot say how much I appreciated this level of professional service.
All the lodging was located in the areas I wanted to be in. Each location was expecting us when we arrived I did not have one reservation issues in ten days or in the nine separate cities I visited.

When the time finally approached for me to leave for my trip I was totally at ease all the planning had been done and the tinier was customized to exactly what I wanted to do. I did not have to worry about anything. This was the best trip I have ever been on and I believe Emerald Isle Tour had a big part in that.
If you are considering a trip to Ireland take a moment and speak to Connie at Emerald Isle Tour and let them handle all your reservations so you can enjoy your trip as much as I did. They truly will give you a completely customized experience while visiting Ireland.

Hi Brian, Many thanks for all the kind words! :) Planning / organizing your custom self drive tour was a pure pleasure and so glad to see that you were at ease with every aspect prior to and during your tour as that’s what we strive for! We’re also equally as glad that you enjoyed your stay without stress and that your overall experience met your expectations although … I do recall one phone call in the midst of your visit saying to me that I should have warned you that the entire island is like a postcard :) .. my apologizes! lol You’re welcome back ‘home’ anytime! “May the Irish hills caress you, May her lakes and rivers bless you. May the luck of the Irish enfold you and May the blessings of Saint Patrick behold you.” All the best, Connie

There are so many positive things that I could say about Connie and Emerald Isle Private Tour but I will try to make it brief and to the point.
Connie and I emailed back and forth for months. This was my fifth trip to Ireland and I told her what I really loved about Ireland, what I had never gotten the chance to see, what I wanted to see again and my love for shopping in Ireland. Together we planned the perfect trip. She even helped me with suggestions of hotels for days when I wasn't even with her.
I was able to see so much of the countryside, stop whenever I wanted, tons of once in a lifetime picture taking ( double rainbow ), see things only the locals knew about. This was so much better than being stuck on a bus all day where you are limited about stopping and always worrying about time and getting back to the bus in time.
The tour was very comfortable, it was like seeing Ireland with one of your really good friends.
Connie really knows her stuff and she truly wants to make your trip as memorable as possible and she will go above and beyond to make sure that happens.
I plan on booking with Connie for my next trip to Ireland and every trip after.

"Enchanting" doesn't do justice to Connie and her service. This is a superb value for a well-conceived, culture-rich, low-key and completely customizable tour.

Connie spent days planning the trip with me even before I made my way to Ireland, and even then she surprised me with sites and vistas off the beaten path. It's clear she's done her fair deal of adventuring; she's a trove of travel ideas both tourist-known and otherwise.

Despite some difficulties that arose the day of the trip (a flat-tire caused a delay for pickup in the morning), Connie was insistent that I get the "full value" of the tour. She took me out for a lovely night of pubbing at the end of the day and the next day brought me along for a masterful sightseeing trip coupled with a ride to my next location free of charge.

This is a tour for people who want a guide who can engage rather than just inform. She weaves tales and history into conversation that will keep you entertained for the duration of your trip. And more important, you will learn what interests you instead of passively absorbing tourist dogma.

This is a highly recommended service for the open-minded traveler. The adventure will not be one you'll soon forget.

Thank-you so much for the wonderful and well written review! 'Engaging' and 'entertaining' is exactly what the entire tour was. ;-). I live by the motto 'treat others as you'd expect to be treated' therefore after learning your interests - suggestions and customizing was easy and the time spent was a pure pleasure! Anyone can come to Ireland as a 'tourist' but it is always my hope to have them return home with unique stories to tell and new friendships made - after your tour...we both have them and agreeably, not soon forgotten! ;-) Ireland, as well as myself will aways welcome your return!

Emerald Isle Tour Review:

This review is based upon my experience and is broken into the following categories; planner, driver, guide,(services provided) summary, and recommendation.

Planner:
PROS: Will do your holiday planning based upon your input of sights and activities you desire to do. Planning in done geographically allowing for reasonable daily routes. Flexibility provided with individual planning and customized tours.

CONS: Inability to accurately determine opening times and schedules. Often was told that the website listed different opening times (when arriving at a sight early) or different opening dates (when a sight was all together closed). After hearing this a few times, a cursory 30 second Google search led me to clearly published official information matching those encountered at the sights themselves. This lack of planning caused for unnecessary travel or missed opportunities to visit sights (ones that clearly said they would be opened with prior coordination on official websites). Was told that Emerald Isle Tours only booked in 3 star and above establishments. The majority of establishments were very good, yet on one stop Google clearly shows that the hotel class was 2 stars.

Driver:
PROS: Ability to drive stick shift (reminder that it’s a left handed shift, and the steering wheel is on the right side of the vehicle)

CONS: U-turned multiple times a day, due to inability to read signage or follow direction clearly given on the GPS being used. Often would come to complete stop in the middle of the road during periods of indecision. Irish drivers, on at least a daily occurrence, would be frustrated with having to deal with our vehicle on the road. Often would start planning the route to the next location (ie Google the route) while driving, which often added difficulties (in-lieu of planning ahead)

Guide:
PROS: Is familiar with Irish culture

CONS: Lacks detailed knowledge and lacks the ability to clearly articulate typical guide ‘knowledge’; to the point where it detracts from the overall experience. An extreme example was told that the Jameson Distillery is now located in Dublin, and the Cork location was simply a museum; the exact opposite is true, the Dublin location used to be the original distillery and is now a museum. This led to us visiting the wrong sight.

Summary:
I enjoyed and would recommend Ireland. However, the overall experience with Emerald Isle Tour was less than pleasurable.

Recommendation:
If you are absolutely unwilling to do basic planning and drive on the opposite side of the road, they may fill your need. Otherwise do the basic work yourself and have a more enjoyable experience.

Hi SapperTraveler, however glad I am to see the pros in your review, I’m equally disappointed in seeing the cons as we strive to make everyone’s visit to Ireland a special one with custom itineraries (including accommodations) reviewed and approved prior to our booking each suggestion as well as all attractions / activities possible prior to your arrival so that you experience a stress free holiday and … we’re always glad to modify as often as needed to suit. :) In saying that, we were also delighted to receive the following message from another member of your group … ‘Connie: Thanks for checking in and for providing the Shutterfly link to the pictures of our September adventure with you. The pictures opened up fine for me. I’ll pass on the link to the remainder of the gang. We still swap stories about the fabulous time we had in Ireland – thanks for making it so memorable for us!' … Ireland is a very laid back country accepting of everyone’s actions with the kettle on and fresh scones ready to welcome every visitor to our small but mighty land and please know that you’ll always be welcome back :) “Friends and relatives, so fond and dear, 'tis our greatest pleasure to have you here. When many years this day has passed, fondest memories will always last. So we drink a cup of Irish mead and ask God's blessing that it fill your every need." All the best, Connie

On my trip to Ireland I learnt a lot about America. The van was really uncomfortable with poor visability. Two venues visited were closed. My father in law's birthday was honoured when two candles were placed is his dessert (his dessert that he ordered and paid for). He was rarely called by his correct name.

Connie was very patient with a ember fo our group with poor mobility. The hotels were fine.

I would have pulled out of a tour that cost 300 Euro per person per day but I was part of a group and we were not quoted until we were already overseas.

Hello Anne, First I must say that I enjoyed your family group and the laughs we had during the week. :)) Many thanks for the compliment regarding my patience.. it's always nice to be appreciated although that's just my nature and always more than happy to ensure the comfort and safety of all of our guests… as well as answer the questions presented along the way. Although our expertise is in Ireland, we'll answer questions regarding America too :) I'm also glad to hear that your accommodations were fine given that your family group coordinator had reviewed / approved each 4 star hotel during the planning process of designing your custom itinerary .. I'm sure he'd be happy to hear this as well. Regarding your father in law, Barrie, and his birthday.. A cake was pre-ordered well in advance and unfortunately, the omission was an oversight on behalf of the hotel staff. In saying that, also discussed as a group, it was my intent on treating all of you to dinner as a show of appreciation to your choosing Emerald Isle Tour when I was firmly out voted followed by your family ordering individually with Barrie, your father in law choosing the menu option which included dessert (which also may have contributed to the oversight). Upon this happening, I personally contacted the kitchen staff and asked them to make your father in law's 'dessert' special in recognition of his birthday which resulted in the candles for him. So .. while it's unfortunate he did not receive his cake as planned, he enjoyed his birthday in the end which was the ultimate goal. ;). We have built our reputation on being forthcoming and honest with regard to our quotes and inclusions from the onset as well as the flexibility of our custom tours regarding interests, pace and budget. We communicated both at length with your groups coordinator with the initial quote / inclusions as well as terms being given on the 17th Jan. It was on 13th Feb when your group coordinator approved stating “It looks like going ahead. What is the next step?”. On 17th Feb., our required deposit (as per terms) was received and our custom planning process began. After several modifications, the final itinerary was reviewed and approved (including accommodations) on 6th Aug. On 25th Sept., flight schedule changes were discussed as well as final balance due less deposit invoiced. While we were communicating with your coordinator on a regular basis and he with the group, it’s curious to me that you weren’t informed as the others were. As we feel that communication is paramount for our tours to meet (often exceed) our guests expectations, we do so in great detail with the coordinator and often group emails however, we have little to no control over how each group, or individuals communicate among themselves. Again, thank you for the compliments and choosing Emerald Isle Tour. We enjoyed your family group and the many laughs along the way including the difference between Heron & Herring ... "wings and gills" ;) lol. Please know that you’ll be ‘welcome back home’ anytime! All the best, Connie

It is hard to know where to start with this review for Emerald Isle Tour and Connie, our guide, but I think for now thank you will have to do. My girlfriend and I recently scheduled a three-day stay in Donegal after touring Dublin. We wanted to tour County Antrim, as well as parts of Donegal, and required a ride to and from Donegal County Airport. Emerald Isle Tour, was reasonably priced and more than accommodating.

After landing on the evening flight from Dublin, Connie met us at the airport in her spacious van, and drove us the scenic, yet distant drive to our hotel accommodation at Harvey’s Point (also a must if you are staying in the Donegal Town area.) Our original intention for staying in this region was to reconnect with my girlfriend’s family; however, that proved to be very difficult. Despite our previous hardship, Connie tried her best to work her (many) area connections to locate my girlfriend's family in the hope that we might be able to visit the next day. Connie certainly went well beyond what was expected of any guide, and this was only a marker of what was to come.

The next day Connie met us promptly at our hotel to take us north to Dunluce Castle, Carrick-a-Rede Rope Bridge, and Giants Causeway. My girlfriend and I also explained that we also hoped to see Slieve League Cliffs in Donegal with the aim of making it back to the hotel in time for dinner and a reasonable time to turn in for our early flight to Glasgow, Scotland—not the most reasonable request. Connie explained that it would be a difficult task to complete, but she was certainly up to making our wishes happen.

Connie is truly a guide’s, guide. She knows the tricks and shortcuts to keeping those on her tour in the know and happy. She knows how to save you a Euro or Pound, all while keeping the mood lively and informative. Connie is also full of surprises. For example: At no point during our tour was I looking for internet access, but when the conversation required I look something up, Connie produced a card which allowed me to have wireless access while in her car. Not that you would want to take a moment to look away from the beautiful scenery, but that perk allowed me to update my family and friends with pictures of our very adventurous day. One would have to look at a map to truly appreciate the amount of driving and travel we did in one day. The non-stop, high-energy guiding Connie did was truly amazing. She talked about everything from the history of the people, to the land, to the sites, to her own story- which is absolutely fascinating.

When we were selecting a guide for our time in the region we had a few options. The fact that Connie was an American crossed my mind at first almost as a concern. Would this in some way be inauthentic? How could an American provide us with the same quality service and information as someone who was born there? Save for her accent, I truly believe Connie probably could have been born in Ireland. She is a Donegal woman through and through, but the benefits of her American sensibilities were repaid tenfold. By that I mean, Connie was able to translate for us the things that we literally (in speech) did not understand, culturally were confused about, or were perhaps too embarrassed to otherwise ask. Connie, however, will not hover over us or intrude on our ‘personal space’. She will let you explore on your own, make suggestions as to what you should do, and let you enjoy the sites and tours on your own. But you will never, ever feel alone. She will take care of you with the highest quality of standards and service.

My girlfriend and I spent a very brief time in Donegal, and an even shorter time with Connie. Connie dropped us off early in the morning on our final day in Ireland at the Donegal County airport for our short flight to Glasgow. We were both very sad to leave Ireland and Donegal, it is an amazing country and an unspeakably beautiful and underrated county. Likewise, I was just as sad to leave our guide and new friend Connie. She had shown us so many new and exciting things about Ireland. I truly believe that Connie is as much in the fabric of Donegal and Ireland as Guinness or Saint Patrick. Book a tour with her now. You will not regret it.

Thank you Connie!

We called on Connie Carr of Emerald Isle Private Tours because we had a limited amount of time in which to see select locations and didn't want the confinement of a bus tour itinerary. Connie came through with insight and suggestions as to how to make the near impossible task of seeing a great deal in a short amount of time happen. She chose wonderful eateries that were satisfying both in quality of food and cultural experience. Not only was she very professional with the handling of each aspect of the trip, she was very personable. She took the time to get to know us so that she could schedule stops of interest along the way, such as the site where the movie, "The Quiet Man" was filmed (one of my husband's favorite movies). It was a pleasure to travel the many country lanes with Connie and we hope to do it again someday!
My tip for the trip is: Relax and let someone else drive :)

Magical, breathtaking, full of history and culture. Both heart warming and heart aching stories of a people so timeless. i loved every minute and did not make my stay near long enough. I visited mainly northern Ireand in county Donnegal. Connie, my tour guide, made my stay quite enchanting and i seriously felt like i was a part of this mystical island and one of the people. i definitely took a"wee bit of the irish "back with me. This is a must see place with its castles, mountains, lakes, cliffs and more. i love the history and mystery. And being guided by a knowledgeable and freindly person, (and yes American thank goodness, because it took me awhile to get my irish ears on...so to speak) made it incredibly comfortable. I knew i was in good hands. 5 STARS!

Thank you for such a heartfelt review! We really did do our share of entwining with the people… their lives, the history and culture of Ireland and in consideration of the short time you were here…you not only felt the magic of Ireland, seen sheep being sheared and experienced a genuine peat fire but also did indeed take a ‘wee bit of Irish’ back with you! ;) Delighted that my ‘translation’ of Irish English (and the brogue) were helpful, even imperative a couple of times! Ha! We had a very special time – quality – and I’m very happy to know that aside from being comfortable, you were also confident that you were in good hands! Thank you for the compliment – it’s reassuring to know that we succeeded in our mission to make you feel at home - where you’re welcome back at any time! Slan, Connie

We had a lovely time with guide Peter. Connie had proposed an itinerary and we worked with Peter to customize a bit. Malin Head was fabulous and the walk out to Hell’s Hole well worth it. The Doagh Famine Village was very interesting full of cultural and political aspects. We spent only a little time there and would go back to explore more.

Contacted owner, Connie, based on recommendation of a friend. Had to be one of the best moves ever! Hubby and I wanted to see as much of Ireland in 10 days as possible and Connie made that happen. We were doing a self-driving trip and from arrival in Dublin, where Connie had reserved our car, to returning to Dublin for flight to US, we had an A+ tour. Connie knows the best way to see the real Ireland, not just the city centers and tourist spots. She also knows the secrets to getting to the better parking spots at Cliffs of Moher etc. She made our hotel reservations and had them pre-paid so all we had to do was show up, sleep and leave the next morning after a huge breakfast! Connie also made reservations at a number of sites to keep us from standing in long ticket lines. She even went out of her way just to meet us for a brief visit. She was by her phone 24-7 in case we had any questions or concerns. I HIGHLY recommend Connie and Emerald Isle Tours!
