Meet some of our local Experts & Scholars

We are so grateful to all at Celtic Footstep for the fabulous job they did in helping take care of our group from start to finish on this fabulous trip. From the moment we contacted them and told them the purpose of our trip and the places and sites we wished to visit, they were brilliant to deal with. Their help in arranging the logistical and practical aspects of the trip, as well as the wonderful expert facilitators they secured for our group right across Ireland took away a lot of potential headaches.
