Overall, the trip was more than we could have hoped for.
We had an absolutely fabulous time!
We would like to mention that the one B&B that we had you choose for us, was one of our favorites- the Mystical Rose. The owner, Noreen, was extremely pleasant and helpful. She made a great recommendation for dinner and traditional Irish music at a local bar and then provided us with directions to the Dunloe Gap near Killarney. We hadn’t planned on heading that way and it ended up being a huge highlight of our visit. Overall, the trip was more than we could have hoped for and we are already looking forward to our next visit to Ireland. Thank you so much for all of your help and support in planning this trip.

It was the vacation of a lifetime!
"Our trip to Ireland was nothing short of fantastic! The museums, the castles, the scenery were all better than we imagined. Our self-drive tour allowed us to squeeze in some unexpected sites while giving us time to take in all the beautiful country had to offer. Each city brought a new adventure--the people were friendly and the food was delicious. It was the vacation of a lifetime!

P.S. The Cahernane House is a great place to stay in Killarney."

Lovely trip providing us with beautiful memories....
Returned from Ireland Saturday evening from a lovely trip. The Gathering in Listowel was the highlight of our trip but the other seven days were fabulous as well. A special thank you to you for handling the change needed in our hotel reservations. When we arrived in Listowel, the front desk informed us of the explosion in Killarney at the International Hotel. Our change to The Plaza worked out quite well. We felt grateful that someone was looking out for us and we are giving you the credit. Thanks again.
We united with second and third cousins that live in Ireland. Even though we were meeting for the first time, I felt like I was coming home to close friends and family.
Besides meeting the family in Listowel, we especially loved the Ashbrook Lodge B&B at Doolin, the town of Kinsale, tea at Dromoland Castle, all the beautiful churches, Rock of Cashel, Blarney Castle, the medieval dinner at Bunratty Castle, the River Lee Hotel in Cork and the town of Ennis.
The weather was very cooperative and the food was fantastic! The Stack Clan has already planned another get together next year. We had over 150 people attending this year's events.
Thanks again for all your help in planning a lovely trip providing us with beautiful memories. Next time we hope to make it to Dublin.

would not have been the same without your expertise!
On our flight home to Denver from Ireland, we had a layover in Chicago, Joe and I sat in a bar, pulled out our cell phones for the first time in almost two weeks, logged in to the airport wi-fi and immediately started a web search for our next trip to Ireland. We didn't want to leave and can't wait to go back! The manor homes were beautiful (we could have spent the entire time at Cahernane House in Killarney and been completely happy), the people we met along the way were great - it was like a family reunion every night at a pub, just with people we had never met before. There was too much to do and not enough time.
Thank you for all of your assistance leading up to the trip - it would not have been the same without your expertise!
Until next time,

It was an incredibly exciting experience that I hope to do again real soon.
I'm sorry it's taken me so long to reply, but I had such a great time on theIrish AdventureTour that I wanted to share my experience, to hopefully inspire other single travellers that might be a little unsure about travelling solo.
From the initial booking of the tour to boarding the flight home, no detail was forgotten. Our driver, Domenic, was one of the nicest men I've ever met.He was fullof Irish history and story-telling with a few songs and poems along the way! The hotels and meals were always lovely, the sightseeing was breathtaking, and there was always enough time to get in some shopping!! As a solo traveller I found this an easy and enjoyable way to travel without any worries, I've included a couple photos from Glendolough and Cobh, two of my favourite locations. It was an incredibly excitingexperience that I hope to do again real soon.
Thanks for everything!
