We absolutely loved Annie she is our Irish daughter! She took such good care of us and saw to it that we saw just what we wanted to see and more. We spent 4 days with her and hated to say goodbye. Ireland was beautiful and we want to go back and will definitely see Annie again. You can’t go wrong with Annie.

In planning our tour of Southwest Ireland, I'm thrilled to have come across Annie's tour guide profile and scores of positive reviews. I personally chose Annie based on wonderful reviews and each one of those reviews proved to be "spot on". Annie, having grown up in the area we chose to tour constantly inserted hidden gems & spots to see along the way. Visiting Ireland was the dream of a lifetime for myself, husband and sister-in-law. Ireland is beautiful and what made it even more lovely was Annie. She is a delight to be around: personable, professional and attentive to each of our individual needs. Annie literally bent over backwards to help my husband (a coin collector) find a complete set of pre-Euro coins & currencies which involved calling and visiting friends along the way. She even dropped us off for lunch one day & returned after having shopped at a nearby antique store with the rest of coin collection! In a world of total complacency when it comes to delivering good client/customer service, Annie stands out and simply shines as an example of delivering results above and beyond.It's something many people long for these days. I felt so appreciative & connected with Annie, not just a guide, but a friend that I cried a little that we had to part at the train station. You will not go wrong with a tour with Annie. Ireland is beautiful- Go with Annie for the full amazing experience vs. some robotic impersonal tour guide that seems burned out on the job. Thanks Annie!

Normally my wife and I organize our own travel activities and implement them. We have done it for years in more than a dozen countries and across the US and Canada. Why did we jump to using a personal guide when we went to Ireland for a week? 1) Our heavy schedule at home in the months before our trip meant we had far less time than we would have liked to plan in advance and read up on places. 2) While my wife has driven around the narrow rural roads in the UK before, it made me nervous. Having someone else do the driving means less stress and more time to look. No big bus on some narrow, road like the Ring of Kerry. Rather our guide, Annie, drove us around in a small but roomy van. 3) We communicated in advance by email, and of course during our first day with Annie, and she absorbed what Ruth likes and what I like and developed a string of ideas that suited our interests, time, and personalities -- and of course the changing weather. She then developed a daily custom plan for us. It's flexible. We can get out of the car and stop any where, or edit the plan with Annie as we go. So those are the three things that led to our engaging Annie for four days last year, and three and a half days this year. (Yes, we went back, and used her services for a second time!) What we discovered as we spent time with Annie the first trip, is that we became good friends in the process - she cared about us, wanted us to enjoy our vacation days, and not only drove and narrated geographical, historical, and cultural information but set up activities so that there was never a wait-time... everything was seamless. Her scores of local contacts meant that she could arrange a jaunting car ride, boat ride, and dinner plan so that all of the connecting hassle was eliminated and and the pleasures maximized. She is well experienced and skillful in organizing in such a way that we are participants together in an adventure. Normally when traveling, you can pick up little things about the culture and views of a country by talking with cab drivers, wait persons, and the random local one might meet. What we found with Annie, is how much you can learn from spending several days with a person, just casually. Annie is a thoughtful, intelligent, kind person and easy to talk with. Annie grew up in a village on the coast, is well educated, has been a teacher for over 20 years. Short of becoming a resident, having a local guide with you like Ann O Dowd is the next best way to get to know Ireland. We learned so much, had an awesome time with her on both trips, and cannot recommend her highly enough... if you are lucky enough that she can fit you into her busy life.

Ann O’Dowd is the perfect guide for the Ring of Kerry, Skellig Ring, or anywhere she goes! Traveling with Annie was like being with another sister. We spent three fun filled days with her on a very personalized tour with lots of attention to our interests and wonderful suggestions for additional things. I’d recommend Ann O’dowd to anyone and everyone! My next trip to Ireland will definitely be guided by Ann.

My sister and I spent three days with Ann O’Dowd touring Dingle, the Skellig Ring, the Ring of Kerry and the Kenmare area and every moment was a delight. As a native, she knows County Kerry like no other. I can only repeat what other reviewers have stated about Ann’s warm personality and knowledge. She is an exceptional person and guide, as well as a skillful driver. Ann listened carefully to our expressed wishes and interests and created 3 perfect tours for us. This was my third visit to Ireland and I have booked tours with Ann each time. If you need a guide in Ireland, please don’t hesitate to contact Ann O’Dowd at Kingdom Guided Tours (Annie’s Tours). You won’t find a more delightful person or a better guide.
