MY TRAVEL SPECIALTIES
IRELAND LEISURE AND LUXURY TRAVEL SPECIALIST
If there's one thing I have learned about the magnificent Emerald Isle, it's that Ireland is all about experiences! The perfect place to try a new adventure! The beauty of the land, the friendly people, culture, food, and amazing welcoming atmosphere is second-to-none. I have so many wonderful areas, activities, and accommodations to share with you!
SCOTLAND LEISURE AND LUXURY TRAVEL SPECIALIST
If you want to truly experience Scotland, from stunning Edinburgh and historic Stirling to the wind-swept beauty of the Isle of Skye and Western Hebrides, let me plan a magical escape for you with excursions to sparkling lochs, dramatic glens and romantic castles in the spectacular Scottish Highlands; accommodation at private country estates, charming country inns, farms, and guesthouses. Enjoy activities to remember always - music and dance, whisky tasting, fishing, walking tours, golf - I can make it all happen for you! My own honeymoon was on the misty Isle of Skye. I would like to give my clients a vacation of a life-time - the opportunity to experience the wonder and wild beauty of Bonnie Scotland!

FANTASTIC TRIP! R W, Buckhannon, WV
For our first trip to Ireland, we had a fantastic time! Lonna Powers was a great to work with in planning our trip! She was extremely friendly and helpful in making travel decisions! She selected top-notch hotels for us and the breakfast each day was fabulous!
A MILLION THANKS! D B, Lombard, Ill
Our Vacation was outstanding. Authentic Ireland did a great job setting everything up, and making our vacation worry free. A million thanks to Lonna - a job well done.
OUTSTANDING 2 WEEK ADVENTURE! Cambridge, ON
Recently returned from our self drive tour of southern Ireland. We worked with Lonna putting together our outstanding 2 week adventure. She was very accommodating and always helped with our requests. The hotels, castles and B&B's were all top notch and we wouldn't hesitate to use the services of Authentic Ireland again.
SPECTACULAR! L S, Long Island, NY
Lonna, Thank you so much for arranging my Scotland trip. It was spectacular! All the hotels were wonderful and the Cromlix was stunning. You got us to all the areas we wanted to see! The country is even more beautiful than Ireland! It will be awhile before I can travel again but hopefully I can use you in the future! Thank you!
GREAT FAMILY TRIP! N W, Jasper, Georgia
12 of us just returned from a "brilliant" Ireland trip with the help of Lonna Powers. We are all family but with diverse interests and ages (28 to 65). With great guidance from Lonna we put together a great trip using a personal Sprinter w/driver. Our driver was the anchor of the trip. I cannot say enough good things about him and the wonderful things he showed us, out of the way sites, arranging private tours, getting us there on time. I could go on and on but suffice it to say I very highly recommend using Authentic Ireland and Lonna! We will talk about this trip for years to come. THANK YOU!!
