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!

We enjoyed the tour very much
To sum it all up, we are very satisfied with both your services and the tour itself. All practical matters, both with respect to accommodation and car rental, went absolutely smoothly. Thank you!
With regard to the itinerary, a couple of observations that mostly reflect on our own planning:
We might have swapped one Blarney and one Salthill night for additional nights in Kerry, Burren or Westport, to get more time for hikes. But that is our preferences and perhaps a slightly different tour than the one we booked. (Also, the unexpectedly beautiful weather we enjoyed made hiking even more attractive, of course.)
We also tried to include a Newgrange visit on the last day on the road, but found out we didn’t have enough time due the hard deadline on the rental car return.
As for the accommodation: I was actually surprised that we got so many nights in 4 star hotels in the “mix”. As far as we could judge, all hotels and B&Bs were excellent value for money, and certainly met with or exceeded our expectations. Our favorite was the Lake Hotel, where everything was just right: Beautiful location, great atmosphere and friendly staff, excellent breakfast, good and relatively inexpensive food in the “brasserie”. We’re also ready to recommend Brooks Hotel to our friends and acquaintances. (Would have stayed there recently if they weren’t fully booked.)
We enjoyed the tour very much. Of course, the beautiful weather we enjoyed for practically the entire tour was an unexpected bonus.
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.

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!!

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,
