“We have been contemplating the words to include in our testimonial regarding our WAMT with Sean Tyrrell since our return from Ireland. We knew this would be a difficult task because our tour was so much more than we anticipated. To say that we loved every minute is not an exaggeration but then Bob and I have a long-standing love affair with this beautiful Emerald Isle.
Eddie and Robert are the perfect tour directors and their meticulous planning was evident throughout the seven days. We have been on a few tours in the past but none are comparable. We stayed in lovely boutique hotels along the Wild Atlantic Way in quaint Irish villages with a backdrop of breathtaking scenery, giving us a taste of what it would be like to live on this magical island. The Trad music sessions and being entertained by Sean and friends was outstanding and so intimate in the pub setting. The instrument makers, Tom Cussen and Eugene Lambe, demonstrating their skills and obvious love and passion of their craft was endearing to witness.
The “Unique Musical Experience”at the Tyrrell family home hosted by Sean’s lovely wife Connie was a definite highlight of the week. The entertainment was superb and there was the opportunity to meet other family members and neighbours who all pitched in to help make it a very special and unforgettable evening. An added bonus was the performances by many talented individuals on our tour who wowed us many times along our journey and that evening playing their various instruments, story telling, singing and Irish step dancing. Just picture it… needless to say Bob and I were on “Cloud 9” that night which was truly magical. I can’t forget to mention the yummy homemade apple and rhubarb pies that we enjoyed among other culinary delights. The session at Christy Barry’s Doolin Music House needs to be mentioned, it was a memorable event and so much fun!!
If we were to pick a favorite Bob and I both agree that we could not choose. An added treat was being able to meet and become acquainted with the music of Sean’s lovely daughter Áine Tyrrell, a very talented musician like her father. She was conveniently on a music tour of her homeland and we were introduced to her strong voice and meaningful lyrics. After our WAMT we now have a deeper appreciation of traditional Irish music.
Needless to say Eddie and Robert you have raised the bar really high-how can we go on another tour and not compare? We are looking forward to the experience of another WAMT in the near future. How can we not come back to do this once again? Thank you to Eddie, Robert and Sean, the Celtic culture, the music, the people we met along the way made this a trip of a lifetime. Ireland truly is a magical place and it has touched our lives once more.
