  • “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!”

  • 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.
