Deirdre was an amazing guide and made my trip to Ireland one I will always remember. Deirdre's passion for Ireland was evident in her ability to understand what we were looking to do, and in fact, she was the best part of my trip. From Rock of Cashal, to excellent food recommendations, to Blarney Castle, to Kinsale, to Dingle & Ring of Kerry - her rich knowledge was so generously shared, and she gave us so much time I am forever grateful. I want to go back and visit more areas with her in the future.
