Description

A charming Irish bus driver. A group of disparate American tourists. One life changing week. Take a tour you'll never forget as you navigate the stunning vistas of gorgeous Ireland along with the hearts and minds of a cast of characters who will live with you long after you've finished this audiobook.

During a routine tour of Ireland, tour guide Conor O'Shea finds himself on a journey of his own through the lives of his hilarious companions as together they navigate both the Irish countryside and the secrets of their individual lives.

A Wall Street banker, a divorcee, a musician, a cop, and a professor all enter Ireland with something on their minds, and throughout their journey with Conor as their guide, they each begin to show something of themselves against the spectacular backdrop of Ireland.

As colourful and turbulent as the wild Atlantic coast, The Tour offers more than just a look at one of the world's most beautiful places, but contrasts Ireland's open skyways and idyllic views against the secret lives of the individual. Witty, informative, and with a touch of romance, The Tour offers a unique look at the lives of others amidst the Emerald Isle.

One reviewer just said, 'book a flight, if Ireland is anything like she describes, I need to be there'. Another claimed, 'up all night to finish, I laughed, I cried, I didn't want it to end'.

Can you afford to miss the trip of a lifetime?

Loved it!

I really enjoyed The Tour: A Trip Through Ireland. The character development and storyline kept my attention. The historical aspect of Ireland waa very interesting as well. Because I use Audible, that enhanced the story even more. The voice actors did an excellent job.

Interesting book, more than a tour of Ireland

This was to say the least, an interesting book. Maybe I was going into it with a pre conceived idea that it would have the land, hills, and views described, just like a Jane Austen book. She always seemed to do that & managed to introduce so many characters and a beautiful love story. This was not the case.

Now I’m not saying Jean Grainger did not write a good book, but I was a bit confused. For example: When was this supposed to take place? There is a (no spoilers) woman who is so shy that it seems to hurt her to meet your eyes! She tells Connor, the tour guide, she was born in 1920? Now if I’m wrong on that, who was? The reason I’m saying this is because she doesn’t come across as someone born in 1920? But she’s on this tour so that she can find out more of her ancestry. That’s great...but it seemed like it came out of no where and I felt like I was being introduced to other characters and at this point I couldn’t keep up with the ones who were there?!

Yes it’s a tour through a part of Ireland, but I can honestly say the description of the book is NOT in the book. We are not introduced to the amazing beauty of Ireland. We are introduced to women, men and a boy that are all dysfunctional, well not all, but a lot. The title should be “The Tour and how it changed lives” because that’s exactly what it was about. Another example: Connor, a fantastic Irish tour driver, has a tour planned daily, plus room & board. It seems as if he’s ready to drop them off for their destination on the particular tour of the day, something crazy happens to one of them. Whether it’s crazy or an enlightenment is what the reader will see. I felt as if there were too many soap operas and a just so happens “a millionaire is in the bunch” ready to help that person who deserves it. It’s realistic to a point then goes off the deep end to you’ll say, “oh come on!”

I will give kudos to the narrator, Patrick Moy. A wonderful Irish accent and he can definitely change accents with no problem. There’s not one person who sounded the same, men or women. I think I continued to listen because I fell in love with him!

So all is not lost. I would still recommend this book, but I would seriously take it slow and don’t fall asleep listening, you’ll have to start again 😂😂😂

What a lovely surprise

I bought this book months ago, but wasn’t all that keen on ready it, I saw it as a reserve. I finally started it yesterday, needless to say I got very little sleep last night. This book is a gem. I bought book 2 at 4am.

Loved it.

What did you love best about The Tour?

Had no expectations when I started listening and fell right into a delightful book with good characters, great narrator, and everything a book should be on a rainy day.

Enjoyable and Educational

I've read a few of Ms. Grainger's books now, and I must say, I've enjoyed them all! It was especially fun hearing the Audible version! The performer did an excellent job, capturing well the accents of the various characters! This is a book that you can read at bedtime, without fear of nightmares, and without fear of losing the thread when you pick up the story again later. One comment: I could not freely recommend this book to my Christian friends, as there is some bad language and a reference (though not descriptive) to a sexual encounter. Neither were necessary to the story. Ms. Grainger, you could easily attract a new audience of at least tens of thousands by leaving these out!

This reads very much as a young adult novella

The format of stories developed around a tour group in Ireland is promising. However for the most part the stories are predictable and non inspiring.

Wonderful

The story is warm, sad, heartwarming, exciting, and happy. Outstanding writing and audio performance! I am sooo happy that there is a sequel.

Sounded like my trip to Ireland

The story made me laugh and cry.
The narration delightful.
Having been several times I knew many of the places referred to in the story
This added colorful memories to the book.

So predictable!

I really dislike stories where the 60 year old guy hooks up with a much younger woman. also the "conversions' of several of the characters was really far fetched. Sorry I chose this for our book club!
