To fully understand what an amazing experience we had with Wild West Irish tours, I feel I need to share why we chose Ireland and why we chose WWIT. When I graduated college, my parents told me that I could go on a trip anywhere in the world with my younger sister to celebrate graduating a year and a half early. After talking to my sister, we both quickly decided that since she would be getting the same offer a year later, we would much rather travel with our parents and not just their money.
Once that decision was made, the destination was an easy choice. Ireland has always been a top travel destination for my family as we knew it would offer something spectacular for each of our vastly different interests. None of us were interested in doing a mass marketed tourist experience. My mom wanted to get a taste of history, our dad wanted to be emerged in nature, my sister wanted to enjoy the pubs, and I wanted to hear traditional Irish music.
A month after the trip has ended and each one of us is still amazed at what all we got to experience. Wild West Irish Tours magically incorporated every single we wanted to experience and so much more.
We were able to see a little slice of Heaven in Inishmurray that would have been inconceivable with a large tour group. Nature took center stage as we wondered through a Fairy Glenn most locals don’t know about. History came alive as local authors, community leaders, and scholars shared with us their stories and passion about the land they call home. Music and dancing was literally brought to our doorstep as we got to witness traditional Irish dancing and take part in a pub jam session.
All of this and so much more made our trip what it was. Being part of a small group allowed everyone’s “bucket list” items to be checked off and be immersed in a trip that gave us so much more than we bargained for. Michael, Geraldine and our guide took us under their wings to show us their magical home and imparted in us things words cannot describe.
From all of us, thank you and sláinte!
