Go South, Go North, Go West Tours
Carolyn Janette & Phil Ryan
Owned and operated by the intrepid husband and wife team of Phil Ryan and Carolyn Janette, Inroads Ireland provides an intimate, authentic way to experience the best of Ireland.
Imagine this – a small group of visitors, no more than fourteen total, embark on a seven day trip to Ireland to explore out-of-the-way places, stay in small towns at locally owned B&Bs, guest houses or boutique hotels.

Each day, you can explore with the group or take off on your own. You can learn about Irish history, folklore and culture, meet the locals, and return home with a suitcase of memories. And you can select which region of Ireland you want to explore: North, South or West.

If this sounds like your cup of tea, then check out Inroads Ireland Tours, a customized travel company that helps you maximize your Ireland experience. Based in Madison, Wisconsin, Inroads is owned by the husband and wife team of Phil Ryan from Dublin, Ireland and Carolyn Janette of Madison. Their love of travel brought them together, and they’ve conducted hundreds of tours for happy travelers.
