Read The Tour Online Free - Every week, Conor O'Shea collects a new group of American visitors from Shannon Airport, from where they embark on a high end tour of the Real Ireland. But this particular tour, with its cast of unintentionally hilarious characters, presents even seasoned tour guide Conor with dilemmas that render him speechless for the first time in his life. Among this eclectic group are Corlene, a gold digging multiple divorcee on the prowl; Patrick, a love starved Boston cop; Dylan, a goth uilleann piper; Dorothy a poisonous college professor who wouldn't spend Christmas; Elliot, a wall street shark who finally shows his true colours. Then there's Ellen, back on Irish soil after so many years after so many years, to discover a truth no-one could ever have guessed at, least of all herself. And that's just a few of the colourful cast. The locals they meet on their journey, - West Brits, passionate musicians, Ukrainian waitresses and Garda high flyers all help to make this a tour no-one will ever forget. And of course, there's Conor O'Shea in the thick of it all, solving problems and mending hearts, but what about his own?

This is a very likable book, with interesting characters, some lively plot lines and lots of interesting historical tidbits about Ireland. It is an easy read, but again, ruined by the poor editing.
A book is not just the story, the plot lines, the descriptive passages. It also is the way in which...

I thoroughly enjoyed this book! I was lucky enough to travel to Ireland in 1985 with my Dad, who in every town looked in the phonebooks to find others with either Mullane or Connolly surname. Both of Dad's parents were 2nd generation Irish-Americans, their grandparents emigrated to the US during...

I may have given a higher review to this, but felt the book wasn't as described. The review indicated the fact the group was traveling around Ireland to various points of interest. The book to me is more about relationships, a little bit too quick-solve, and barely mentions travels around Ireland...

Interesting, but maybe a little more of ‘Touring’ should be written
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...

The Tour: A Trip Through Ireland is by Jean Grainger. This book is nothing like I thought it would be. I thought it would actually be a tour where they talked about the places they were visiting. Then I could remember those places that I had been to when I was there. Instead, it was a bus tour w...

This was a wonderful book. It reads very much like a Maeve Binchy or Rosamund Pilcher with interesting characters and lives intersecting on a week long tour of western Ireland, a visit I made 10 years ago. I loved the references to some familiar places of one of my favorite vacations.

This story of an Irish tour guide and one of his tour groups is a great comfort read: great scenery, pleasantly quirky characters, enough plot elements to keep you turning the page. It was 100% predictable, but the ride was so enjoyable that I didn't mind a bit.

Grainger gives us well drawn characters, especially tour guide Conor O'Shea, and a fresh look at the Ireland of today through a few well placed historical facts without being pedantic. I enjoyed The Tour and believe you will as well.
