Love Ireland - we did!
Well we're home and trying to get used to the idea of going back to work next week! The only consolation is that we are able to see our children & grandchildren!
Let me just say to you and all at Tour Ireland: a big THANK YOU! The self-drive tour of Ireland was certainly a highlight of our trip and the organization by you of the hire car, maps, discount vouchers/booklets and hotels was superb. Whilst we did not use a great many of the actual discount vouchers, the booklets gave us a great opportunity to pre-plan routes and visits for each day. The hotels were great; in fact, we got to the Randles Court in Killarney and Edwina said she was happy to stay there and not bother going on! We had a fantastic trip around the Ring of Kerry; took a horse trap ride up to the gap, with a horseman named Donie, who gave us a light-hearted but knowledgeable tour of the area.
Our only problem was getting to the Camden Court Hotel in Dublin, from the airport; Dublin has so many one-way streets/turns, that we drove around for three and a half hours to find the hotel and get into the car-park! Even the locals, of whom we enquired for directions, sent us into these one-ways.
Other than that, we had an absolute ball! Love Ireland - we did! (and that could be a suggestion, if the powers-that-be ever want to change the name of your company!)
Once again, Viv, thank you for your invaluable assistance and advice in this great odyssey of ours and we will see you again and certainly offer your name to anyone that we know who is contemplating a visit to the Emerald Isle.

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!!

Thanks for helping us have a great visit!
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!

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!

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.
