Lovely trip providing us with beautiful memories....
Returned from Ireland Saturday evening from a lovely trip. The Gathering in Listowel was the highlight of our trip but the other seven days were fabulous as well. A special thank you to you for handling the change needed in our hotel reservations. When we arrived in Listowel, the front desk informed us of the explosion in Killarney at the International Hotel. Our change to The Plaza worked out quite well. We felt grateful that someone was looking out for us and we are giving you the credit. Thanks again.
We united with second and third cousins that live in Ireland. Even though we were meeting for the first time, I felt like I was coming home to close friends and family.
Besides meeting the family in Listowel, we especially loved the Ashbrook Lodge B&B at Doolin, the town of Kinsale, tea at Dromoland Castle, all the beautiful churches, Rock of Cashel, Blarney Castle, the medieval dinner at Bunratty Castle, the River Lee Hotel in Cork and the town of Ennis.
The weather was very cooperative and the food was fantastic! The Stack Clan has already planned another get together next year. We had over 150 people attending this year's events.
Thanks again for all your help in planning a lovely trip providing us with beautiful memories. Next time we hope to make it to Dublin.

Thank you Tour Ireland and Aisling for being so accommodating and making my trip successful!!
I finally got to take my trip I have waited 39 years to have and it did not disappoint!! We traveled to Ireland June 14-26 2014 and did the 8 day self guided tour for the first half of our trip and it was absolutely amazing!! Driving ourselves and being able to stop when we wanted was the only way I could imagine seeing Ireland and even though we had to tackle to opposite side of the car and road......we did it and had a blast!!! I can honestly say that Ireland met the challenge of holding true to all the pictures I have seen in my coffee table books. We had 13 days of sunny and warm weather so it made all our views spectacular!! Thank you Tour Ireland and Aisling for being so accommodating and making my trip successful!! All the B & B's were amazing....I don't have a single complaint!!! Thank you for everything!!! We will definitely go through you for our next trip to Ireland.....because I will definitely be back!!

We enjoyed the tour very much
To sum it all up, we are very satisfied with both your services and the tour itself. All practical matters, both with respect to accommodation and car rental, went absolutely smoothly. Thank you!
With regard to the itinerary, a couple of observations that mostly reflect on our own planning:
We might have swapped one Blarney and one Salthill night for additional nights in Kerry, Burren or Westport, to get more time for hikes. But that is our preferences and perhaps a slightly different tour than the one we booked. (Also, the unexpectedly beautiful weather we enjoyed made hiking even more attractive, of course.)
We also tried to include a Newgrange visit on the last day on the road, but found out we didn’t have enough time due the hard deadline on the rental car return.
As for the accommodation: I was actually surprised that we got so many nights in 4 star hotels in the “mix”. As far as we could judge, all hotels and B&Bs were excellent value for money, and certainly met with or exceeded our expectations. Our favorite was the Lake Hotel, where everything was just right: Beautiful location, great atmosphere and friendly staff, excellent breakfast, good and relatively inexpensive food in the “brasserie”. We’re also ready to recommend Brooks Hotel to our friends and acquaintances. (Would have stayed there recently if they weren’t fully booked.)
We enjoyed the tour very much. Of course, the beautiful weather we enjoyed for practically the entire tour was an unexpected bonus.
Two weeks ago our three couples returned from a magically, amazing 10 days in Ireland. Prior to our departure we often contacted Allison with questions about itinerary, insurance, etc. Allison always responded promptly and with insight. With her assistance we collectively built an itinerary. Bright and early one morning in Dublin, our driver, Mike, appeared in his shiny 'bus' for the six of us. To say that our 'ride' was immaculate and constantly drew stares, would be an understatement.
Mike then led us, befriended us, on a beautiful tour of southern island.
All of our desired sites we had set up with Allison were visited. Along the way anecdotal stories about the countryside were revealed. On some occasions Mike sang to us. At lunch time Mike would always make a suggestion about where to go, often joining us. Likewise, at dinner, Mike always made suggestions about places to eat, even making reservations for us! Of course we visited all of our desired sites we had set up through Allison. Yet there were others that did not appear on the itinerary but 'were in the neighborhood' that left lasting memories, perhaps sprinkled with some laughter.
None of our group had ever been on a chaffered tour. All six of us would heartily endorse the experiences and the company that led us to enjoy them. To Allison and Mike, thank-you and we wish you all the best.

The hotels were fantastic....
My wife and I have just got back from a wonderful holiday arranged by yourselves for my step-son John Ewing.
The hotels were fantastic and were very good and different. It was a very good package. I would like to say "thank you!"
