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

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.

The hotels were fantastic....
My wife and I have just got back from a wonderful holiday arranged by yourselves for my step-son John Ewing.
The hotels were fantastic and were very good and different. It was a very good package. I would like to say "thank you!"

We had a wonderful time exploring Ireland.
The trip was fantastic! We had a wonderful time exploring Ireland. We found the accommodations to be lovely, the people were friendly, the food was delicious, and the scenery was gorgeous. We were in awe of the history of the Rock of Cashel, Bunratty Castle, and Blarney Castle. We had a great itinerary, thanks to Liz at Tour Ireland and the staff at our hotels, who directed us to local points of interest we may not have found otherwise. Our only regret was that we couldn't stay longer, so we plan to return someday.
Thank you so much for helping us plan our vacation. We loved our time in Ireland, and have already started considering another visit, which we hope can be longer than this one.

Thank you Tour Ireland and Aisling for being so accommodating and making my trip successful!!
I finally got to take my trip I have waited 39 years to have and it did not disappoint!! We traveled to Ireland June 14-26 2014 and did the 8 day self guided tour for the first half of our trip and it was absolutely amazing!! Driving ourselves and being able to stop when we wanted was the only way I could imagine seeing Ireland and even though we had to tackle to opposite side of the car and road......we did it and had a blast!!! I can honestly say that Ireland met the challenge of holding true to all the pictures I have seen in my coffee table books. We had 13 days of sunny and warm weather so it made all our views spectacular!! Thank you Tour Ireland and Aisling for being so accommodating and making my trip successful!! All the B & B's were amazing....I don't have a single complaint!!! Thank you for everything!!! We will definitely go through you for our next trip to Ireland.....because I will definitely be back!!
