The best part of the trip is....I really felt we were experiencing Irish culture. So enjoyed staying in one town and getting to meet so many local people. And the musicians were so welcoming, and so great! Thanks Mai.

This has been the most amazing adventure of my life, and its been a long one. (my life, ha ha)

The sites we saw were breathtaking. Mai and Séamus were so knowlegable having been in Ireland their whole lives. The music made it very special, I'm in love with it all!

Thank you so, so much for everything...It was amazing,

What a wonderful trip with Mai! The "Secrets" and sessions made the tour, but the stunning scenery of Sligo, Galway, Donegal, and Clare helped! thanks to Mai's musical connections, I may have met a distant relative today...what fun, only with Mai.

On this, my first trip to Ireland, I've experienced the traditions, the music, the countryside teaming with animals and the hills, mountains and waterfalls of this beautiful unforgettable country.

This was our third trip to Ireland and the first tour. Mai had an amazing line up of "Secrets", sightseeing and music sessions. We feel like we have truly experienced all things authentically Irish. Great trip and wonderful memories.

Teresa Cawley had a chat with us also. She told us about the "Brown bread and Jam festival that is held every year in her hotel in Tubbercurry. This is a storytelling evening. It is very much part of Irish culture and our guests really enjoyed the evening.

It was the day of the rainbows, then a swirling waterfall, a holy well--and now live music from séamus and friends while hoisting some brews. A lovely finish to a marvelous week. Telling no (secrets), it was one surprise after another. Thank you, Mai, for opening our eyes to beauties new and old, expected and unexpected. We saw only smiles and heard welcoming words from everyone we met. What a joy. Again, thank you, Mai!

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.
