This was the best tour we had in Ireland, and we are at the end of our trip so that says a lot! Mary led the tour herself and was remarkably knowledge about the history of Ireland. We felt like we were in a classroom rather than a tourist group. Ample time was given at the Hill of Tara and Newgrange to walk around, as well as the delightful surprise of animals (some babies!) on the open farm at which we ate lunch. We despise the corny jokes and rambunctious energy of some tours, and Mary's tour has NONE of that! It was a calm, informative, well-organized ordeal from end to end. Loved it. Professional in every way.
