About Us



Tom Casey, Founder, Old Sod Travel

In earlier times, Irish Americans returning home referred to their birthplace as the “Old Sod.”

Today, Old Sod Travel is dedicated to connecting groups, families, companies, couples and golfers from around the world with extraordinary experiences on the Old Sod and the British Isles.

Our passion for the countries, culture and their incredible scenic beauty is matched only by our passion for helping our clients experience it for themselves.

Our focus is solely on highly customized travel to Ireland and the British Isles. This allows us to identify the best hotels and guesthouses, and to know the owners personally. We know the best hiking trails, golf courses and fish­ing guides. The best restaurants, pubs and scenic vistas.

We know where the good seats are at the Edinburgh Tattoo and how to get tickets for Wimbledon, Premier League  Soccer games or a Hurling match at Croke Park. We know which sites and attractions are truly worth seeing and where you’ll want to spend extra time.

We are a small, independent business that has built an outstanding reputation for service and for designing the perfect vacation for our clients. Our trip planners are passionate about travel to Ireland, Scotland, and England.

Some of my colleagues grew up in Ireland. One still lives there. Three of my colleagues lived in London for an average of seven years. One grew up in Southern England and travels back frequently to visit relatives. Three of us have traveled to Ireland and the British Isles more than 15 times each. We know the place(s) great detail!

Let us help you plan and book a trip that you will be talking about for years to come!
