What Our Customers Say

  • We had an amazing trip! We spent two weeks in Ireland driving from point to point. Our agent at this Ireland travel company set up a phone consultation with my husband and I to better understand our likes and dislikes. She really paid attention to what we said. Every place we stayed seemed to be custom tailored to us. We couldn't have been happier with our experience. There is no way we could have found the places we stayed at even if we went online for 1,000 hours to research. It was an amazing experience, and we cannot wait to get started on our next adventure!
    Paulette , Paulette via Z, An amazing experience
  • My daughter and I traveled around Ireland for almost two weeks an I can honestly say, it was one of the best trips either of us has taken. We chose this Ireland travel company to basically plan our whole trip, from hotels, to places to see, to transportation and booking for special events. They did not disappoint. On the contrary, they exceeded our expectations. All throughout our trip, we felt their support, we never felt alone, or lost. Communication was great, any new add on's to the trip or changes of plan, were met with the most efficient and positive attitudes. Because of their great service, we are going back to Ireland next year and we will 100% be using them again.

  • We experienced a very fine trip. The accommodation at each venue were superb. Our two drivers were personable and knowledgeable. We appreciated our agent at this Ireland travel company delivering Dublin and Hop On Hop Off Passes. It was our 4th trip to Ireland, but our first in 15 years and this travel company provided a fine service.
    Malcolm P , Malcolm P, A very fine trip
  • Our trip was excellent and our travel agent (Emerald Elite) was exceptional to work with. Their professionalism was impeccable, and everything that we could have asked for. As opposed to most travel agencies that feel like they are just selling, you honestly felt that the representatives from this agency were personally engaged with you and cared about the quality of your experience. Rare to find such personal service in the world today.Upon our arrival we were met at the airport to personally introduce themselves and to hand deliver a detailed travel itinerary and information on our travels. The level of personal service was wonderful and far exceeding any level of hospitality that we have ever received in the United States even traveling to the very best hotels.I can't say enough about their welcome and their attention to detail. Kudo's on a fabulous job. We will definitely use Emerald Elite again for our future travel needs.

  • The variety of the places that we were able to experience was incredible. The quality of service at every hotel that we stayed at was excellent.Ranging from the Lough Eske Castle to Ashford Castle to The Muckross Hotel to Adare Manor every place offered its own experience of place and people.Simply stated, Ireland is a gem of beauty and cordialness. I have traveled extensively, but have never run across people that were just simply the most genuinely kind and accommodating no matter if it was a bar tender, Concierge or bell hop, or even a tire service station attendant, all made you feel welcome and went out of their way to help you.

  • Everything went well. Great accommodations and the restaurants were very good. Everybody loved Waterville House and Smugglers Inn.Peter was the best that we have had on any of our trips. Very friendly and eager to please and went out of his way to take care of one of our golfers. FYI: Doonbeg is redoing 7 more greens starting Sept 23rd. If you have any groups planning to go there, I would reschedule. They say the greens won’t be in good condition until 2017.We discussed our 2017 trip and think we may try England. We would like to play as many British Open courses as possible – at the same time we would like to change hotels only once.Thanks for arranging a great trip. Everyone had a great time. Steve
    Steve B , Mr. Bachman, Fourth trip & the best so far
