2020 has been a difficult year to plan travel!  Our thoughts are with all of our past tour guests, and with our future guests whose 2020 plans for travel were disrupted due to global events.  We know how rewarding and important travel is...and we will be back!! We are planning for our escorted 2021 trip right now, and can also help you to plan your custom or private tour of Ireland.  We are not currently planning any additional travel through the remainder of 2020, and we will pray for better days in spring of 2021.

About Us


Our background

Greetings! We are Nichole and Billy Healy, owners of Healy Glass Artistry. Billy Healy was born and raised in Waterford Ireland, Nichole hails from Milwaukee Wisconsin. 

We have been lucky enough to enjoy traveling back to Ireland to see our family dozens of times over the last two decades. Traveling has become the norm in our lives, as we have worked all around the United States at hundreds of Art, Craft, and Irish Cultural events as artisans. Along the way, we have met some wonderful people—and the question kept arising “When will you take us to Ireland?” 


How We Got Started

From that question, an idea was born. 

We decided to offer customized tour packages that focus on hand-crafters and artisans working in Ireland. Our customized tours visit some off-the-beaten-path places combined with must-see destinations around Ireland. 

We have stops built into our tour to allow you time to relax or explore; with the group or on your own. Our hotels have world-class spas, and we will be close to golf courses and shopping.  Of course—the heart of Irish Culture can always be found in a nearby local pub, and with an Irish host, we will never be too far from a pint, a chat, and a laugh.


Dreaming of Ireland

We know that Ireland is a dream destination for many people.

We meet countless people in our travels across the United States who have been to Ireland and who long to return, as well as those who consider it one of their ‘bucket list’ items. 

Our philosophy on travel is that it should be as comfortable and stress-free as possible. Our mission is to take the guess-work out of it for you, to create an atmosphere of warmth, Irish hospitality, and camaraderie, while visiting some of the most amazing places on our planet.
