A Touch Of Ireland Ltd. is a team of well-travelled, experienced, thorough and imaginative professionals. As a mix of Irish nationals and long-settled Europeans, we understand what makes a successful trip to Ireland, both from the local’s and the visitor’s perspective.
We have no office juniors, no temps and no hierarchy, which means that the consultant you are dealing with is always fully qualified and authorised to make any decisions necessary to plan and execute a programme to your satisfaction.
We’re also prone to spontaneous outbursts of laughter, jokes and general mischief, so hopefully that won’t be an unwelcome addition to the service!
