Vivienne put together a wonderful trip for us.
Vivienne put together a wonderful trip for us. We drove nearly 1000 miles and were able to see all the things we requested, and found some real gems along the way on our own. Highly recommend timepieceantiqueclocks.com near St. Patrick's Cathedral in Dublin! We picked up two as one beautiful clock was not enough!
The time and care tourireland offers is unsurpassed and I have such gratitude for all the patience, support and Irish Charm we received while planning our trip, and certainly while visiting such a marvellous country.

Hands down the best trip I have ever taken...
Hands down the best trip I have ever taken. You have a beautiful country with very welcoming, warm people and amazing landscape and scenery! I can't thank you enough for the tour. We loved everywhere -it's hard to pick a favorite place!
I would come back to Ireland today if I had the opportunity. My anniversary is on St. Patrick's Day so in a few years for our 10th I am planning on coming back with my husband!!! I will be sure to get in touch with you for that!
We stayed 1 night in Ashford Castle--I am pretty sure I died and went to heaven that day! Unbelievably picturesque! I would highly recommend that to anyone who can do it!!

Will have these memories forever....
Our first day in Ennis was met with a lovely hotel called “The Old Ground Hotel” great food and drink. The people truly make you feel welcome, and it was one of the best places to stay. We walked through the beautiful town and enjoyed all the sights. The relaxed feeling, people and accommodations were a perfect start to our vacation. Our tour was even better once we departed onto our journey with our tour guide, Joe and bus driver Anthony. They were a great team; with jokes, stories, knowledge, history, and so much more. They truly made everyone feel that they were special and totally at ease. If you had any questions, they had the answers.
The sights, the landscape from one end of the country to the other was breath-taking. The history, knowledge, myths, jokes and just explanations of how the Irish families work the land made every word spoken - amazing. We enjoyed guided tours full of history and wisdom, as well the evening of “Food, Folklore and Fairies” with Johnny Daly was truly a fun and entertaining night. The sheep tour was truly a relaxing fun time on the farm. It took you back to a more restful time, fresh biscuits and homemade jams were definitely enjoyed by all. The afternoon of poetry at Broc House was refreshing, especially for someone to invite you into their own home and share a homemade lunch and beautiful poetry by Yeats. The Medieval dinner was when everyone could let go and just have fun joining into the storyline. Glenveagh National park was beautiful as you walked through the gardens. Blarney Castle was a beautiful walk and day trip. My husband managed to climb the stairs and kiss the famous “Stone of Eloquence”. I walked the gardens and enjoyed speaking to others enjoying the same experience. I thoroughly enjoyed the Jaunting car we rode to Ross Castle and the stories and jokes.
The hotels were very nice and food was great! We had a Whiskey tour, Guinness tour, and learned to make Irish coffee. The castles, ruins, churches and many other stops kept us going all day. We had our own time to enjoy shopping, or more sightseeing. The end of the day most of us would get a drink and sit and relax at the bar, or outside in the beautiful weather. We only experienced one day of rain, the 11 days that followed were +25 to + 30 degrees Celsius. This is not what most would expect from Ireland. However, being used to these lovely temperatures in Canada we managed quite well. I believe the only complaint was the unexpected warm temperatures.
My thank-you to all involved, in providing both my husband and myself with a beautiful 25th Wedding Anniversary trip, that we will not soon forget. We took over 3000 pictures and will have these memories forever. Aisling you are truly remarkable and I thank-you for all your assistance.

It is a trip we will never forget...
Many thanks to you for a wonderful trip to Ireland. It is a trip we will never forget.
The self-drive tour was perfect for us. We really got to use our five senses to experience Ireland. We were free to get up when we wanted, eat when we wanted and stop when we wanted. It was perfect.
We had three main goals while planning this trip: see as many of the sights as possible, visit as many small pubs as possible, and eat as much seafood as possible. We did not fully accomplish these goals. I guess we must return!
We did see many of the main attractions and were amazed with the age of the castles, the beauty of the cathedrals, and the overall beauty of the country.
We did get to see and drink in many small pubs. People were always so very friendly and helpful.
And we did eat seafood as much as possible. Friends told us the food was bland and boring in Ireland. Totally untrue. We were not disappointed with any of our meals during our two weeks. Our meals were delicious. The fresh seafood was over the top great. The seafood chowder was the best we ever tasted. Our first experience with the chowder was in Waterford. It was pouring down rain so we stopped in a very small cafe-diner. We ordered the seafood chowder and it was terrific. So creamy and so full of fresh seafood.
Our hotels were very good and the weather for the two weeks was unexpectedly sunny. We had only two half days of rain and unexpected quick showers on a few days. It rained in Waterford and at Giant's Causeway. Actually, it was pouring down rain at the Giant's Causeway. While I was taking pictures, my wife got back on the bus. Not paying attention, I continued to take pictures while she and the bus returned to the Visitor Center. She waved to me while I was slipping off a rock and filling my shoe with water. The weather for the trip was chilly, but the sun was out the vast majority of the time.
Thanks again for all you did to make this a great trip and experience.

My Mom and I are back home from our visit to Ireland. What a beautiful place! It was such a help having you set things up and make suggestions. Even with our airline issues, we both immensely enjoyed the trip. We have talked about going for many years and finally did it. Thank you for all that you did. We are already in talks for a second trip and will certainly contact you again!
