Pat Kane and Kathleen Foy met on the first West o'Clare tour of Ireland, back in 1997, and have continued travelling togerther ever since. After a prudent courtship, we were married in October of 2013.
Pat & Kathleen were both raised in the Southern Tier of New York State, in Irish Catholic families. Pat was raised in a large farm family near Painted Post NY, and Kathleen was raised about 1/2 hour away in the vibrant Irish American community of Elmira NY. Both were taught to cherish our heritage from an early age.
Pat Kane, "Balladeer of the Southern Tier," has been singing, dancing, playing, and storytelling for over 35 years, full-time for most of that time. He has ranged from clubs and pubs to theatres, festivals and fairs, schools and colleges. Kathleen spent much of that time as a Special Education teacher, and as a soccer and softball coach. We are both proud parents and grandparents, and active with our large extended families.

Why we're called "The best Ireland tour you can take"
We combine high quality with affordable price. Our intimate knowledge of Ireland lets us find the best tour agents and operators at the best price available. We let you see a large part of Ireland without rushing you. Stay out late, leave at a reasonable hour in the morning. Since we use a home base for several nights, you can opt to take some time away from the rest of the group, if you wish. You don't have to pack and repack every day. We take up a voluntary collection to tip our drivers. If you're on a tight budget, your fee includes the whole trip. And best of all, you have singers, players, storytellers, and a dance instructor all along the way!!!
"A Guaranteed Brilliant Time!"
Because of the popularity of our Ireland tours, many customers have returned with us many times. We have received requests to lead tours elsewhere, and have expanded to include ITALY and the CARIBBEAN. In future, we hope to visit many other destinations such as France, Spain, Australia and New Zealand!
