    Meg was great! If it wasn't for the Aussie accent you'd think she was a local lephrechaun with all the great knowledge she shared and places reccommended for our free time. Will never forget pottering at the Cliffs of Moher!

    I've done multiple tours with multiple companies and Megs is up there with the best of them! So bubbly that you can't possibly have a bad day, she will make sure you have a great time and learn a bit, too!
