From our travelers
I loved the hotels, border collie herding, Irish coffee, as well as the Guinness and Smithwick’s tours. The tourist spots and local pubs gave a balance to the trip and I fell in love with the beautiful countryside and, most of all, the people I met in the pubs. Easily the best trip I have taken.Karin Littlefield

We had the best time
Best beer and whiskey we've ever had. Saw everything we came for. Comfortable, classy throughout. A few misses (like the Whiskey Museum) but the hits (like Sean's, and the Marine Bar) more than made up for it. We really had a blast, thanks mostly to PJ's expertise.
Heaven on Earth
Our Pub tour with CIE Tours was brilliant. We were given a great variety of places and experiences. The driver-Leslie, was an excellent driver and very professional. He was very knowledgeable, entertaining, and informative. The views of the countryside during the drives to our destinations, were as entertaining as the locations we were visiting.
Looking forward to our return to Ireland, and are planning future tours to other countries with CIE.
Thank you very much
Well organized, great value
