"Saoirse Tours I celebrated my 50th birthday on the Emerald Isle!! It had always been my dream to explore the country of my ancestors. With Fran’s help, it became a reality. I had gotten Fran’s name from a friend of a friend, who assured me that Fran was the tour guide for me! I was not disappointed. Fran not only was accommodating, she was a true treasure to find. Our trip was exactly what I had envisioned and then some! Fran shared with us not only the beauty of the Irish, but her history, her people and not to be forgotten, the breathtaking scenery. I requested “off the beaten path”, and that is what I received. The B& B’s were reasonably priced, the castle was wonderful, and the local pubs & dining establishment were welcoming. Saoirse Tours is a perfect fit. WE Americans, are always searching for the “Deal” of the day.. Saoirse Tours is the deal, with a big bonus.. Friendship! I plan to use Fran again when I return. "

"Fran gave us the most wonderful tour of Dingle and the Peninsula. She is a lovely lady, personable and gifted in her ability to Take the Road Less Travelled. Jan Thompson. Milwaukee. When my family decided to travel to Ireland to trace our ancestors a friend recommended Saoirse Tours. We contacted Fran Ryan by email and answered some of her questions about us, our interests and what we wanted to see. After some more emails of suggestions and questions she sent us an itinerary for our approval, then made all the arrangements. Fran met us at the Airport and did not waste any time showing us around. She was very knowledgeable on all things on all things Irish and other subjects too. She kept us entertained throughout our visit and constantly asked for feedback to make sure we were enjoying ourselves. Our schedule was not written in stone and when something else interested us, or we wanted to go down that winding road we just passed, Fran was happy to oblige. I would recommend Saoirse Tours to any one travelling to Ireland, we had a very memorable time. Frank Tansey, Kentucky. We had the best time ever, you did a fantastic job, we loved it."

"Testimonial for Fran Ryan 01-28-2013 By Andrew Osteen My wife and I met Fran Ryan at the Irish Festival in Savannah, GA, back in 2005. We were impressed with her the moment that we met her. My wife has a Scotts-Irish background, and she wanted to buy some Celtic cloaks and sweaters. While shopping with Fran we talked about wanting to take a vacation in Ireland. As is the case with most out of country vendors, I do not think Fran believed us. But every year that Fran came back to the Irish Festival we made a point to go just to see her and talk some more about a trip in the future. Fran offered to take us on a tour when we came over. When the time finally came for us to start making the arrangements I contacted Fran by email. I left the itinerary totally up to her. The length of our trip was to be two weeks. In October of 2009 we finally got on a plane and flew over there. Fran met us at the airport and off we went. We spent time in Dublin, visiting a pub or two, and did some sightseeing. The next day we were off to countryside. We went to an Irish Race Track and of course lost a little money on the ponies. We stayed at Bed & Breakfasts that were in people’s homes. Went to dinner at a castle (Bunratty Castle) and had our first taste of Mead. Went to the Cliffs of Mohr. Spent 2 days shopping, in Galway, at our own leisure. Took some tours and visited the original set of the movie Quiet Man. We then went to Fran’s house in Dingle and spent 3 days there. Fran left us there on our own and we walked into town shopped, visited pubs, and other clothing stores. All in all we had an excellent trip. We could not have had a better tour guide. The only thing I regret is not buying more Mead to bring home (you can’t find it here in the States). I also learned to pack all my clothes in one bag that way you can bring more bags home on the return trip. I just have to get Jackie to do that (not possible). We hated to leave when our trip was over and we made a promise to return. I plan on a return trip this year."
