TOURS OFF THE BEATEN TRACK
Meet the husband and wife team of Carolyn Janette and Phil Ryan. Both are world travelers and founders of Inroads Ireland. Although they are now based in Seattle, Phil is originally from Dublin, while Carolyn hails from Wisconsin. They creating Inroads Ireland to satiate their own travel appetites while appealing to like-minded travelers looking to see authentic Ireland - - off the beaten track!
That formula has worked well for Inroads Ireland, and each summer they conduct tours in the North, South and West of Ireland. Many of these tours sell out in advance and many of their clients are return visitors, a sign of their popularity among intrepid travelers who want personal guides and small, flexible groups that are suitably paced to venture off the beaten track!
If you're thinking of taking a trip and want to be part of a small tour (14 max), then this may be the way to go. Carolyn and Phil have been leading tours to Ireland since 2006 and are experts when it comes to questions like visas, what to pack, electrical items, cell phones, weather, and most importantly - - where to go to see authentic Ireland.
There are three tours to choose from or you can take back-to-back tours if you can't get enough of the Emerald Isle.
