We had a marvelous time!
We had a marvelous time! Everything in Dublin was perfect, including the location of Camden Court. It was so nice to be able to leave the car at the hotel and walk everywhere. The hotel was beautiful and had the most delicious breakfast. Somehow, I managed to get the chef to give me the recipe for his brown bread, which I will make here as soon as I can find the right kind of flour.
One of our very favorite activities was the Doolin Cliff Walks with Pat Sweeney- if anyone is looking for a great way to see the Cliffs of Moher, this walk is much better than going to the visitor center.
Ballyseede Castle was great as it was a central location for a lot of our activities. I would highly recommend Muckross House and the farms for future visitors.
For future trips, you should warn Americans that there really aren't road signs like we are used to. We took a GPS device and we would have been quite lost without it. Once we figured out that sometimes there are signs on the buildings, we were better off, but definitely people should bring some kind of navigation system.
You did a great job booking our trip and you were even right about the driving - it wasn't too bad. We will definitely be coming back and we will be using your agency to put together our next trip.
Thanks again for all your help.

I wanted to reach out and say what an incredible time we had on our trip through Ireland. The accommodations were fabulous and the drive through the countryside was absolutely beautiful. We love to travel and this trip is by far at the top of our list of adventures. A big thank you for all of your assistance in creating this itinerary which will leave us with life long memories.

Enjoyed every minute of our stay......
First let me say we enjoyed every minute of our stay in your lovely country. Everything went smoothly. It would be hard to select one place we stayed as above the others, all were outstanding, and the people made us feel very important. Aida and David at St Jude’s B&B in Rathmines made us feel like family. The suites at the Tower Hotel in Waterford made us want to stay in and not explore Waterford. Hayfield Manor House in Cork made us feel like we were among the elite people of the world, everyone learned our names and room numbers, and they worried about us finding everything we wanted both in the hotel and the city. Each person took time to assist us. After Cork, we moved off into the beautiful Irish country-side, and took many of our favorite photos. We were blessed to have taken a GPS from Hertz, as we wandered and several times needed assistance to get back on track. The Malton was crowded, since we arrived on Saturday evening, and many people were there for the weekend, plus it was raining and guests did not want to go out. We ventured out and found that the rain was centered over Killarney, and we had great weather touring the Dingle Peninsula. We took a side trip to Tuam to visit and old friend, then returned back to Dromoland for our next stay. Breathtaking is all we could say, it was my mother-in-laws dream come true. After two glorious days in Dromoland, we then returned to St Jude’s where David offered us a family-style welcome.
The trip was all we could have expected, and if we ever plan a trip to Ireland again, we will call you.
Thank you Gillian you helped our dreams come true.

The trip was fantastic .....
The first hotel Hotel Kilkenny was great. My family was thrilled with the accommodations. There was a wedding going on and we had a blast. I know you did not have control of the weather, but it was perfect. My nephew never got out of his shorts. On to the next hotel, the Maldron Cork. The location was great. It was a real easy stroll to the main part of town. We were very pleased with the rooms again. Third hotel was Killarney Riverside. Great rooms and a great lobby. It was a good stroll to town, but we easily did it. The next hotel was the Pillo in Galway. Weather managed to stay great until our 2nd day, which we ended up driving toDublin to where the sunshine was. There waiting for us was the Camden Court. This had a great location and it was a very nice hotel. My family could not believe how each hotel was better than the last. The staff at all the hotels were top notch. The vouchers made it so easy. Upon arrival the 5 rooms were ready and I only filled out minimal information for one room. Breakfast at all the hotels was very good. We simply had no complaints about the accommodations. The trip was fantastic and we even got to spend time with our cousins in County Tipperary. We encountered one flat tire on the entire trip. My nephew did not like those big tractors on the back roads. We did try to stay off the motorway as we wanted a more personal experience.
