"We are grateful you urged us to get out of the tourist scene in Killarney and get to know Ireland and the Irish People. Vinny is extraordinary. He took us out to Abbey Island for a ecology lesson and hike and then for a private session of traditional Irish music and Rock music combined. We had no idea we'd be in for such an intimate performance".
