Next year will be my 9th year of running my own tour business offering specialized tours to Ireland. It’s really been quite the journey for me as both a tour operator and guide. I personally lead each one of my tours with the support of my husband and family in Ireland this exciting dream has become a reality. This year we are even adding Scotland to our plans touring the Western Isles and Edinburgh.
I am a native of County Armagh in Northern Ireland and moved over the United States almost 20 years ago with my husband Gary. Having a passion for cooking from being involved with a family restaurant in Ireland before moving to the United States it was a natural step to start my own food business in Atlanta GA. I have also written a popular Irish themed cookbook – ‘The Shamrock and Peach’. My customers want to see Ireland through Irish eyes with someone who has all the local knowledge and extensive contacts and so “Shamrock and Peach” Tours was born.
Exploring throughout the entire island, our unique tours will illustrate what makes Ireland such a superb destination with world class dining, breath taking scenery and thought provoking historical sights. Each stop on the tour will feature the best of new Irish culinary talent in Luxury and mostly five star spa hotel settings including The Lough Erne Hotel, Lough Eske castle, The Lodge at Ashford, Genloe Abbey Hotel, The Culoden Hotel, The Slieve Donard hotel, Ballymaloe House, Hayfield Manor, the Malton.
The Shamrock & Peach tours prides it’s self in offering Chef driven tours with dining experiences that are – the best of what Ireland has to offer.
Treat yourself to a luxury tour of Ireland that you will never forget, guiding by Judith and her staff who will share their wealth of knowledge and infectious love of Ireland. Please check out our primary website for more information and itineraries:
