About Us and Our Tours of Ireland for Women Only
Celtic Heart Tours Director Marcie Miller: With Irish roots on both sides of my genealogy, I’ve had a deep love for Ireland even before I first set foot on Irish soil in 2002. Since then I have returned again and again, responding to a tug on my heart that keeps pulling me back. Or as Irish poet W.B. Yeats said, “I feel it in my deep heart’s core.”
As a solo traveler I realize it’s not always easy for women to travel. On my first trip to Ireland I joined a “backpacker tour,” which consisted of me — a middle-aged woman — and 15 boisterous 20-somethings. It was not a group that I would have chosen to travel with, but there were no other small group tours that catered more to my wants. Still, I loved our adorable Irish driver/guide, and it was great to have someone else drive so I could enjoy the scenery.
On subsequent trips to Ireland, both solo, with my mother and with my life partner, I rented cars and navigated the harrowing, narrow roads of Ireland. We saw countryside that large tours don’t, but I thought, there had to be a better — and safer — way to explore all that Ireland has to offer.
I began Celtic Heart Tours as a way to share my love of Ireland with other women and to give them the opportunity to experience the fun and freedom that comes from traveling with like-minded women in a small, flexible tour group.
I’ve done the legwork and on-the-ground research to ensure that Celtic Heart Tours can provide the perfect Irish experience, whether this is your first time or a return visit. I will accompany each group as tour director and a professional, Irish driver will be behind the wheel of a fantastic 16-seat Mercedes coach.
Life is a journey, and I have worked as a journalist in the U.S., Tanzania and Korea, ESL teacher and stained glass artist along the way before following my heart to form Celtic Heart Tours.
