  • “Thérèse’s historical and cultural input to the many churches, libraries, monasteries, small towns and large cities visited was wonderful and where necessary she had arranged for experts to talk to us.... She set the bench mark high as our Tour Guide and I would be delighted to have her on a future tour or pilgrimage. Oh and I nearly forgot, she was fun!”

    - Marie Forester, St Columbanus Tour participant

  • "Thank you so much for everything you have done for our group! You've really made this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity something that I will remember forever (and will talk about for a long time). You are so knowledgeable and I really feel like this trip has been the perfect combination of learning about Ireland and experiencing all it has to offer. Again, thank you so much!" Josh, University of Dayton
  • "Thank you so much for planning and organising the entire trip for us while studying abroad! I have learned so much from the visits we took and had an extremely fun time in Dublin. Myself and the group appreciate everything you have done for us! It means a lot!"
  • Therese knows so much about the landscape and its history - ancient to present day - as well as the kinds of tips like where to eat that are so helpful for tourists. I would take another tour in a heartbeat! She offers tours all over the island...
  • Our family had an enormously successful trip to Ireland for 2 weeks in May 2015, thanks to the planning and implementation of Dr. Therese Cullen, PhD, and her company, Irish Monastic Tours. We knew our trip would be wonderful due to Therese's superb credentials, but this trip greatly exceeded our expectations. There was an excellent mix of the fantastic Irish scenery, typical tourist sites, historical sites, monastery ruins, and great interactions with the friendly and witty Irish people. Dr. Cullen's knowledge of Ireland is impeccable and she has a terrific personality that makes the trip even more enjoyable. We can only highly recommend the professional services of Irish Monastic Tours and Dr.Therese Cullen.
