I have done many trips for solo travelers and will continue to offer them in the future. Custom-designed trips built around discovery of ancestral origins or just fun, hassle-free and worry-free travel for up to a maximum of 12 persons.

I’ve been living and working in Europe for coming up on 35 years and I have never seen anything like 2023 and now, 2024 is off to an incredible start. Just since the 4th of January, I have had to say “sorry, all booked up” to five different interested parties who wanted to travel this […]

It never fails – my clients are always more than a little dubious about taking a warm seaweed bath – right up to the moment they sink into the water. And then, it all changes! Owner / manager Brendan does a great job explaining the history of seaweed use and how good the oil is […]

Repeat guests Sam, Judy, Colleen and Don enjoyed a night at Dromoland Castle in County Clare at the tail end of their recent tour in Ireland, Sept 13 – 23, 2023. This was Don’s sixth tour with European Focus, Colleen’s seventh, Sam and Judy’s fourth.
Dromoland should be called “Dreamland,” because it’s so… yes. The estate was owned by the O’Brien family, and it was not burned during the Irish Revolution of the early 1900s because the family had good relations with the locals, whom they treated with respect. The estate has an 18-hole golf course, extensive woodlands, wonderful paths for walking, a large lake with free rowboats and a gorgeous, peaceful walled garden. Inside, at least three large fireplaces are kept going all day long, adding to the warm atmosphere punctuated by reds, browns and blues. Lush doesn’t begin to describe Dromoland.
I look forward to bringing many more guests to this special place in the future.
