Dan Regan, Kansas City, U.S.

"This is a glimpse into the lives of rural Irish people as it existed for centuries and it's fascinating. The fact that it takes place in one of the most heartbreakingly beautiful landscapes in the world didn't hurt. They even arranged a rainbow for us. I can't recommend a visit highly enough."

Dan Regan, is a founder and past president of the Kansas City Irish Fest.

"Díreach lenár mbuíochas ó chroí a ghábháil libh as casadh leis an ngrúpa ó Ollscoil Luimnigh inné. Bhí siad chomh tógtha leis an áit agaibh agus bhaineadar sár-thaitnimh as an áit.

Beimid i dteagmháil libh arís mar cinnte beidh mé ag iarraidh grúpaí eile a chur ann - mise san áireamh!"

"Cnoc Suain is an inspirational place. We were carried away by Charlie's enthusiasm, he is so informative about the flora and fauna of the area. Dearbhaill's cottage was equally fascinating and welcoming with music and dancing creating a real Irish afternoon."
