  1. I have used the services of John and Anne at Celtic Golf Tours three times now and each trip has been wonderful. John knows the courses, hotels and all the good restaurants. He will take you door to door where ever you go so you don’t have to worry about anything but having a great time. John and Anne have become good friends as a result of my three trips and I am starting to think about the next trip in 2014. I highly recommend Celtic Golf Tours to anyone looking for a great experience. Jim Nylen

  2. I have been on 4 trips to Ireland and Scotland with John. He has provided outstanding service and trips that provide memories that last for a lifetime every time I go. One trip was 4 golfers with our wives and the others were 8 golfers. John took care of our wives while we brutalized some beautiful golf courses and he quickly won them over. John and Anne have become wonderful friends. We are already planning our next trip with them in 2014 back to Scotland.

    1. I forgot to say that I made a hole in one on #16 at Old Head. The highlight of my golfing career.
      Thanks John for helping to make that happen.

  3. Eight if us have been to both Ireland and Scotland for week plus with John. With Anne ably pulling strings in the background, the trips have been near flawless in both planning and execution. – just the right amount of fixed and flexible schedule to make sure that everyone remains happy throughout the trip. John’s very evident golf skill (and his patience with those less skilled) is a welcome bonus.

    We will be returning to Ireland next year with Celtic Golf and I know I look forward to another memory building experience. I heartily recommend Celtic Golf to any and all considering a golf trip to Scotland or Ireland.

  4. I have taken 4 trips with John. We travelled with John twice as 4 couples with wives who did not golf, and twice as 8 golfers. John was very attentive to the needs of our wives while we played golf. He took them sightseeing and touring and they seemed to have as much fun with John as we did golfing. We have travelled with John to Scotland, Ireland and Northern Ireland. John provides the type of customer service that is extremely special. No detail is ignored and no request goes unnoticed. But the most special part of our trips has been the friendships we have developed through the years. We have truly enjoyed meeting John and Anne and treasure their friendship and the wonderful memories they helped us to create. I can honestly say that you will have no regret using John to plan your next golf outing. We are in the process now of planning our next tour to take place in 2014!

  5. John and Anne run an outstanding Holiday operation no matter what your budget! I have been using Celtic Golf tours since its inception and cannot recommend them highly enough. Next year will be my sixth trip with John and Anne and I would not use anyone else. From pre-holiday planning and golf course selection to airport pick-up, restaurant recommendations, site-seeing and all the time when you are not playing golf, they are constantly looking out for your every need. Short a Caddie, John is on the bag, Guests back goes out, John is on the tee!! Need a present for a teen-age daughter – Anne is at your service!! Not only are they great at what they do but they are great people and I am proud to call them my friends.

  6. John and Ann are true professionals that run an oustanding business with great emphasis on customer service. I have been to Ireland, Scotland and the UK with John. Each trip was fantastic. John’s knowledge of the local courses and familiarity with the local managers makes for a very efficient and enjoyable experience. I am very much looking forward to my next visit this May to Ireland.
    I too, like many of John and Anne’s clients am proud to call them friends.
    For anyone contemplating a golf excursion I can’t imagine a better experience than the one that Celtic Golf Tours provides.

  7. I toured Northern Ireland with John on a guys golf trip and was very impressed with his services. Every venue was terrific, every planned detail well thought out. It was a lifetime of memories over the course of eight days. John’s golfing tips were as spot-on as any advice I’ve had from paid professionals. I heartily endorse Celtic Golf Tours and look forward to future trips with John.

  8. We have been traveling with John and Anne Finnigan of Finnigan Fairways for about 25 years and 10 trips for golf in Scotland, Ireland and England. The Finnigan’s have become “family” to me and our foursome! John knows every course, every pro, and the concierge and doorman at most hotels where we stay. Not to mention every decent pub and restaurant as well as the “backstory” on all of them. As a scratch golfer, John will walk a course with our group and there’s no one better to “suggest” the proper club and approach. When we arrive and see John, it’s like seeing a member of the family. I have never had the slightest disappointment and every trip has been a total success. With his help our bucket list of playing every Open Course has been achieved! I could not give him a higher recommendation and Wil return in 2021!

    If you want to book a trip where your guide knows every club secretary which makes booking tee times a breeze, Finnigans fairways should be your choice. I just completed my 6th trip in 2019 with 7 of my best friends, playing courses on everyone’s bucket list. Accommodations and food were great, John made sure everything was perfect, from picking us up at the airport to dining in his favorite pubs.
    If you are thinking about that bucket list trip to Scotland or Ireland, Anne and John can put it all together for you!

  10. I cannot speak highly enough of John and Anne. They literally take care of everything for you. We did a 12 day tour of Scotland and Ireland in 2016 and a seven day tour of Ireland in 2019. Our highlight was watching John make a hole-in-one on #13 at Tralee (he was filling an open spot in our group that day). What George Eckard’s review said it 100% correct, they know everyone, everywhere. I’m saving up for my next trip right now.
