A Wonderful Trip
“Pat truly knows Ireland. A wonderful trip with all the details taken care of. All we had to do was show up! We let Pat know what we wanted to see and do. He made it happen. He’s an excellent host, guide and driver. The last is crucial on the Irish roads.
Don’t go to Ireland without him”
