Tom Casey


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 started as a small, independent business that has built an outstanding reputation for service and for designing the perfect vacation for our clients. We have since grown and recently added an international office in Ireland. Our trip planners both on the ground in Ireland and in the USA are specialists with expert knowledge about travel to Ireland, Scotland, and England. We know the best guides, drivers, food tours, golf courses, restaurants, and of course, pubs!

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

Scandinavian Travel

Travel to a different part of the world with our sister company Scandinavian Travel.

Enjoy the familiar customer care, the same hand-in-hand travel planning, and the genuine desire to provide life-changing experiences that you find at Old Sod Travel – but to a whole new destination!

Founded nearly 40 years ago, Scandinavian Travel (originally called “Scandinavian American World Tours”) focuses exclusively on custom trips to Iceland, Greenland, The Faroe Islands Norway, Finland, Sweden and Denmark.

In 2019, “Scandinavian American” became part of the Old Sod Family. As the company continued to expand, we knew that it needed a name that would grow with us. In 2022, we announced that Scandinavian American World Tours would become “Scandinavian Travel.” This name better reflects our mission of providing authentic luxury experiences to our clients.
