Testimonials from our Travelers

A few Testimonials from some of our Friends

“Our trip with Irish Byways was a truly unique, memorable, and enjoyable experience We were treated to a glimpse of Irish History—human, geological, religious, and musical—that was presented in a grass-roots manner that one would be hard-pressed to find in more traditional tours. Our guides were personable, knowledgeable, informative and accomplished musicians, as well.”
– Jim A.

“The enthusiasm for the area by our leaders was contagious.”

“Dave Hogan’s guided tour, Landscape & Lore, Music & Myth, was like a most enthralling university course. I did not realize just how much information he actually gave us until I started to listen to recordings I made of some of his talks on the bus and in the field - Absolutely incredible! I feel as if we are part of a select few who have had the pleasure of both enjoying and learning from a true Irish Master.”
– Dick R.

“The multitude of diverse inputs were a sensory extravaganza.”
