About Us

Established in 2000 by Maria Flynn Conway, following 23 years in the International Travel Industry, Celtic Journeys is committed to providing excellence in service to all our clients. Our clientèle includes groups, families, individual travelers, corporations and associations. Repeat travelers and referrals from those who have traveled with us before make up the largest part of our business.

Born and raised in Waterford, Ireland, Maria has resided in St. Paul, Minnesota since 1996, returning home regularly to visit the properties we recommend and to stay up to date with current trends.

Our base in Waterford, Ireland is expertly run by Owen Flynn.  With over 20 years of experience in welcoming visitors to Ireland, Owen is on hand to ensure that your trip runs as seamlessly as possible.  Jessica Flynn handles social media and co-ordinates various groups that need special assistance.

Also joining us on our journey in the US office, Julie Ansell , an alum of many Celtic Journeys adventures with a thirst for travel,  strong operational background and a can do attitude. Jean Wynne, a travel veteran, enjoys working with small groups of professional experts in specialized crafts.   

While our emphasis is on Ireland, like the Celts before us, Celtic Journeys travels to many lands. We welcome the opportunity to share our knowledge of these destinations with you. Our Rule: “If we have been there and found it inspiring, we love to share the destination with friends, old and new.”

 We look forward to sharing our special destinations with you, escorting you through Ireland or helping you plan your own private journey, and working closely with you to create an extraordinary journey full of lasting memories.
