Mystical Haunted tour of Ireland with Victor Paruta May 2019 video and written testimonials below.

Three years ago I was told by a medium that I would be going to Ireland.That my ancestors were calling me home and that my Irish grannies would make it happen. Fast forward three years and out of the blue I heard of Mai Hernon and Secret Ireland Tours .  Immediately  my soul leaped and I knew that this was the woman and the tour my Irish grannies wished me to take. And my life has been blessed and transformed by the magic and love of Mai which she puts into her tours! These days have been planned so well! Each day is magic, with each day better and better! Mai is the heart and Soul of Ireland! She brings you into the spirit of the country! Mai creates a family atmosphere of such joy and fun. I'll be back to take more tours with Mai and Secret Ireland Tours ! Mary Jane Brigger.

This trip has been wonderful. there is no doubt that Ireland is beautiful, but Mai makes it come alive. Her enthusiasm, love, and pride for her land is contagious. the sights we saw were just breath taking and all the accommodations made us feel at home-away from home.I felt taken care of at all times. I would never have taken a trip like this - a bit out of my home-body comfort zone, but when I met Mai I knew I had to take this trip. No regrets! Annie Hodapp

Mai managed to bring together the soul of Ireland and it's breath taking beauty with the city and it bussel. The songs, the stories and Mai have provided me with the best vacation of my life! Organization like none other! I will be booking with you again. Much love and may God bless you!

We have organized music in the  local pubs for our tour groups. These sessions are very welcoming to anyone who would like to sing a song, or dance, or indeed, join with an instrument. 

You will hear, for free, some of the finest musicians in the country.  These musicians have travelled the world with their music, but there's nothing like playing in the local pub with their friends.

We will bring you to all the stunning areas only the locals know.

You will see lakes, mountains, sea shores, forests, holy places, and much more. You will meet the locals who might just tell you some stories about where you are.

Relax and take in the fresh air. Go for a walk, take pictures and soak it all up.

On our travels we will see 11th and 12th century ruins of Castles, Abbeys, underground passage tombs, outdoor altars and famine grave sites.

You will go back in time listening to the history of these places. 

We will also be bringing you to restored castles and modern gravesites. "Oh but why are they bringing me to a gravesite" I can hear you say. Just wait and come with us, you will be amazed at what you see.
