We can still picture every detail of our amazing trip. There wasn't any place that we didn't fall in

Gillian,

 

Thank you for all of your assistance for our dream come true trip. We did the 15 day self drive tour of the north and south; which, was wonderful.

We have been home for a few months now. We can still picture every detail of our amazing trip. There wasn't any place that we didn't fall in love with. Driving was different and so was navigating. We did it the old fashioned way with a map. We decided that our unplanned "detours" were just added adventures. Ardfield's B&B and Murvagh Links Manor were two of our favorite stays. The Arfields had horses which was right up my alley. They treated us like we were family as did the Murvagh's. Donegal was a place definitely worth remembering. Unfortunately, the owner of the Abbey Hotel passed the morning before our arrival. The funeral was humbling to say the least. The entire towne center closed to show respect as he was carried thru the center. We did the water bus tour. It was awesome! Singing and relaxing was great. We did visit Lake Blessington. The owner of Blessington Lake Boat Hire, Connel and his wife, were wonderful. Not only did they rent us the boat that was used in P.S. I Love You, but they pointed out different areas that were filmed. The wild blackberries were a delightful treat as well. We fell in love with all of the castles whether they were on the map or not. Once we arrived in Belfast, we decided to take the ferry to Scotland for a few hours. What another grand experience. The list could on and on. Jenny and I have been planning our trip for over 22 years. We, with your help and the help of every place we stopped, made it a reality. We are already planning when we can return. The folks were a joy to be around. Everyone was always so delightful and helpful. The scenery that goes without saying of how beautiful it was.

Thank you so much for helping our dream become a reality!

BEST vacation we have ever had!

Gillian,

Our Ireland vacation was the BEST vacation we have ever had! You made everything so easy from start to finish. All of our accommodations were great, with lots of variety. We even loved driving on your crazy roads! We had such a great time, and cannot wait to come back. We will definitely book with you again.

Thank you for making our ten year wedding anniversary so memorable!

Sincerely,

Thanks for helping us have a great visit!

Hi Gillian,

Our tour worked out really well, we were very pleased with all the B&B's, particularly the B&Bs in Salt Hill and Blarney. We thoroughly enjoyed our visits to Inishmore, Cliffs of Moher, the Burren, as well as lots of other sites.

I will definitely recommend tourireland.com to anyone interested.

Thanks for helping us have a great visit!

Entire country is more scenic than the best travel posters

Gillian,

Thanks for the great planning you did for our recent trip to Ireland. Before we called you, we had a definite route of places we wanted to see. You made all the B & B reservations, with some of the most delightful proprietors we've ever come across, arranged the car rental, sent a detailed list of "must see sites," and took all the worry and work out of planning the trip of a lifetime. You did so well, I suspect you might have had a hand in scheduling the choir from the high school I coached at for 13 years, to be singing at Kylemore Abbey at the exact time we stopped to visit! Now that was an incredible surprise!
 
In any case, we loved everything about the trip and have recommended your services to everyone we talk to about it. One neighbour who has made several trips said that
 
“Ireland is the one country where the entire country is more scenic than the best
travel posters." We agree.
 
Thank you for making sure our only worries were to stay on the correct side of the road.
 
Sincerely,

Will have these memories forever....

Dear Aisling,

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.
