Connie C.

Laghey, Donegal, Ireland

Welcome to Ireland! ;) As an Irish American with dual citizenship, I'm passionate about my homeland and everything she has to offer.

Ireland is so much more than 40 shades of green and there's nothing as rewarding for me then to see the sheer delight on the faces of our visitors when they see 'more'!

I have personally enjoyed touring visitors throughout the island of Ireland for over a decade and love sharing the myths, legends, history and culture with anyone willing to listen on or off a scheduled tour. I'm familiar with all the tourist attractions as well as the best restaurants, pubs, castles and gardens and pride myself on saving our visitors money without sacrificing quality where possible and strive to add as much as the day (and energy) allows to each tour!

I was raised in an Irish community within the Midwestern part of America and until the age of 10, sat at the feet of my grandfather, while he told us tales of the 'auld country' and for the last 10 years, have made his place of birth in Donegal my home. Although I've toured visitors throughout Ireland, I'm most familiar with the West / Northwest especially Donegal that was voted the 'coolest place on earth' by National Geographic for which I concur!

I welcome the opportunity to show visitors the locally known hidden gems as well as the highlights of the entire area including Mayo, Sligo and Antrim. I also design custom tours to better fulfill your interests as well as book hotels, attractions and activities such as golf courses for your convenience and peace of mind.
I look forward to providing you with a quality tour, whether it's for one day or several, in this romantic land of magic!

go raibh míle maith agat (Thank you very much)!
