A very enjoyable 11 days
Just to thank you for organizing our recent trip, which went well.
All the B&Bs were of a high standard, with great Irish hospitality. I should particularly mention Beniska House in Killarney, where Gene and Margaret Moriarty went that extra mile to be friendly and welcoming.
We took up a lot of suggestions in the itinerary (thanks), and swapped some of them for ideas of our own. It was good to have the important stuff organized but with freedom to explore where we wanted.
Overall, a very enjoyable 11 days which has left an impression of a country with stunning scenery, interesting history and friendly people.
Everywhere we went we found the Irish people to be warm and friendly, making us feel right at home.
We have been home for a couple of weeks now, and I have been meaning to write and let you know what a wonderful trip we had. Thank you for your help in setting up the itinerary, it allowed us to see so many different parts of your beautiful country. Everywhere we went we found the Irish people to be warm and friendly, making us feel right at home.
The driving was challenging at times, but sightseeing was amazing and we ended each day in search of a pub with live music (not hard to find)! We haven't downloaded all of our photos, but I've included three of my favorites from my iPhone - Cliffs of Moher, Inishmore, and Gap of Dunloe.
Thanks again, we hope to return soon, as there is so much more to see!

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.
