tour that is unique

If you want a tour that is unique, try Irish Music Tours. Sean's knowledge of Ireland as a whole is impressive and the music component makes it unlike other Irish tours. He also is very attentive and accessible throughout the tour. He knows his stuff!

Charles Mullen

I did one of Sean's tours from Ardara, County Donegal several years ago. The music, the tour of the area and the craic was a great experience. I will try to make it again.
