I went to Ireland for the first time, having dreamed about it for years, and did the western counties tour (Galway, Clare, and Mayo) with Wild West Irish Tours.

It was a deep experience; it was mystical, exciting, fun, and enlightening. This customized tour with just a few people made it possible to learn and experience a lot comfortably and without stress. I was fortunate in that I was connected with a friend of our tour leaders who took me away for a day to the town in county Mayo where my great greats were born and married. I felt that I had made a full circle, the first in the family to return home. It was amazing. Mike (the owner) made it happen. I treasure the memories of our B &B’s and our kind and lovely hosts, serving the most delicious and beautiful breakfasts. Speaking of food, I had no idea Irish food was so good.

I fell in love with the landscape and the people of Ireland. Taking this tour was one of the best decisions I ever made. I look forward to my next Westie experience.
