Thank you, Mai and Secret Ireland Tours! We had the trip of a lifetime with you touring all of Ireland’s most magical places on our “Lynch Cousins Reunion Tour of 2022.” You waited patiently for two years through the Covid crisis when our planning with you started and we finally arrived on Ireland’s shores. You promised us magic and it was indeed! I had so many favorites it is hard to list but the music in the evenings with you and at local pubs was just the best. The people of Ireland are the friendliest in the world. I would highly recommend this visit with you to everyone. Already I am looking forward to another special trip with you as our guide and Eddie, our driver.

Mai is the consummate professional guide about everything Ireland! She is proud of her homeland and lovingly introduces her guests to 'her' Ireland! She listens to her tour group to provide them with out of the way and sometimes "unplanned" visits to special places. Her flexibility and patience makes for a relaxing, fun trip. She has makes everyone feel welcome and you always leave her tours with new friends! My favorite place on this tour was the small boat trip in the North Atlantic to view the cliffs. It was the best thing I've ever experienced . . . the water, the view, the salt air, and the boat Captain (Paddy)! Also the experience of having Patti Negri with us was more than I expected. She freely shared her insights and feelings about the places we visited. Patti and Mai together are Magical!!! Can't wait to go on tour with them both again!

We enjoyed that our trip was customized for our group’s shared interest (Irish dance). We also really liked the non-touristy feel of the trip. Thanks for a great visit, Mai!

My self & my husband Richard went on the our first trip around Ireland with Mai hernon . I don’t know where to start as we had such an amazing adventure & we met such wonderful new friends. Mai went above & beyond to make sure we had a wonderful time & experience while we traveled around all the different magical places. Our stay in our hotels was absolutely fantastic with amazing food to eat. We have enjoyed our holiday with secret Ireland tours that we have already started planning our next adventure with them. We can’t wait to experience more magical places with the secret Ireland tours!! But please don’t take our words for granted we would ask for you to book and have an amazing magical time with secret Ireland tours. YOU WONT BE DISAPPOINTED!!
