About Old Sod Travel

Incredibly Beautiful Driving Tour

Old Sod arranged a bespoke self-driving tour through Scotland for my 19 year old son and I. They had a detailed understanding of the locations we wished to visit, which allowed us to see some of the very best of an incredibly beautiful country. Highly recommended. And, best of all,…their restaurant recommendations were outstanding.

Getting the Perfect British Isles Experience!

Our trip to Scotland and Ireland was absolutely incredible and would not have been possible without the expertise of Old Sod Travel! Deborah was amazing at accommodating our specific requests and creating an itinerary that reflected our interests. All of the accommodations were wonderful and perfectly located. The tours that Old Sod booked for us provided us with expert knowledge about Scotland and Ireland. I would 100% recommend booking with Old Sod to get the perfect British Isles experience!

Fully Customized Ireland Trip!

We were very pleased to work with Old Sod Travel to plan our trip to Ireland. Both Lori and Joanne were excellent in their attention to detail, working with us to customize the trip to ensure we did the kinds of activities we wanted to do, and they also had loads of good information about Ireland that helped us in our planning. They were both very responsive to any questions we had before and during the trip. Excellent job! Also, the driver guide that we had was wonderful and made our trip so rich and informative.

Amazing Trip From Start to Finish

We had an amazing trip from start to finish. Kerryann Kiely was so easy to deal with and very detail oriented. Loved the choice of hotels, amazing golf and great drivers.

A Trip of a Lifetime

The Old Sod team was “lovely” as they say in Ireland! The trip was the perfect mixture of challenging golf courses (with beautiful views of the coast and countryside) to outstanding accommodations of Bed & Breakfasts and charming Inn’s to full-service hotels. I would highly recommend this group, if you are traveling throughout Ireland.

They customized our trip to my particular preferences while still constantly keeping in touch with us and suggesting the most interesting stops along our route. My son and I met pub owners and engaged in very insightful conversations with the residents in Lahinch and Ballybunion.
The walking tour in Dublin with Conor was spectacular! A quick historical description of Irish culture and government was a stimulating way to spend a couple hours in the big city.

A trip of a lifetime… Erin Go Bragh!

Able to Plan Our Trip Around Our Needs!

Fantastic! Katie took care of all the important details before I even needed to ask. She had great insight into the area and was able to plan our trip around our needs.

Rich with Experiences and Memories

There are many details in a trip such as ours. We have never been away for 19 days. Katie at Old Sod did an amazing job. We were extremely grateful for our wonderful drivers/guides – Neil and Tom. We felt totally taken care of. Everything worked out exactly on time as planned and our trip was rich with great experiences and memories. We are happy that we chose Old Sod for our Scotland/Ireland journey!

Old Sod Travel Hit it Out of the Park!

We worked with Julie Cole of Old Sod Travel in arranging our 3 week trip to Ireland and Scotland. We wanted to concentrate on the southern sections of each country, stay in nice but not 5 star hotels, with a preference for smaller and/or more historic lodgings. We also asked to use public transport a bit, as well as car and driver, but planned to do no driving ourselves. To put it simply, Julie “hit it out of the park”! Our hotels through the trip in both countries were exceptional, the itinerary was planned to give us just the right amount of introduction within the time available. The car/driver combos were knowledgeable and professional, and the time spent in each location just right to introduce, peak interest to return, get a “feel”, etc. Carolyn and I recommend Old Sod and Julie Cole without reservation!
