Thanks for a job well done.
Thanks for your help. Everything went well, no glitches. Flights were smooth and on schedule. Hotels were wonderful. No issues with the car rental. Much driving, but we saw a lot and did a lot. Weather was as expected, passable. A bit of rain every day, mixed with clouds and sun. I knew enough to bring rain jackets. Couldn’t allow the rain to spoil the fun. I captured tons of amazing photos.
The primary purpose for the trip was to attend a ceremony in Killoe, Co. Longford, memorializing my mother’s uncle, James Farrell, who perished on the Titanic and was recognized as a hero for helping to save the lives of several young women from his parish, steerage passengers like himself. The ceremony was wonderful and touching.
Tried to catch as much of the main attractions as possible. Did pretty well, but couldn’t see everything. Off the beaten path, we found our way to Cong to follow the trail of the Quiet Man. Also made it to Cobh and the Titanic Museum there. Was able to acquire two replica boarding passes in the name of James Farrell. Didn’t think we would make it to Cashel, but managed to catch it en route to Dublin from Kilkenny.
Once again, thanks for a job well done.

We had a wonderful trip!
We had a wonderful trip. It was so nice to have all our stops for the night prearranged. The voucher system worked fantastically. We saw so many wonderful sights and met some really nice people. If you don't have a gps, I would recommend getting detailed instructions on how to find your stopping point for the night. And a double room generally means one bed so if you are not a couple, point that out in advance. The Tour Ireland people are so nice and helpful. I highly recommend them.

We had a fantastic time in Ireland
We had a fantastic time in Ireland. The country is beautiful, the people are more than friendly and the weather was great (hardly any rain during the daytime). We can hardly wait to return and see more of your country.
Overall, the experience was great. It was super not having to deal with, or worry about the accommodations and car rental. The hotels were good and the rooms were comfortable....
It was a pleasure working with you and I will definitely recommend you to anyone that is planning a trip to Ireland.

Will have these memories forever....
Our first day in Ennis was met with a lovely hotel called “The Old Ground Hotel” great food and drink. The people truly make you feel welcome, and it was one of the best places to stay. We walked through the beautiful town and enjoyed all the sights. The relaxed feeling, people and accommodations were a perfect start to our vacation. Our tour was even better once we departed onto our journey with our tour guide, Joe and bus driver Anthony. They were a great team; with jokes, stories, knowledge, history, and so much more. They truly made everyone feel that they were special and totally at ease. If you had any questions, they had the answers.
The sights, the landscape from one end of the country to the other was breath-taking. The history, knowledge, myths, jokes and just explanations of how the Irish families work the land made every word spoken - amazing. We enjoyed guided tours full of history and wisdom, as well the evening of “Food, Folklore and Fairies” with Johnny Daly was truly a fun and entertaining night. The sheep tour was truly a relaxing fun time on the farm. It took you back to a more restful time, fresh biscuits and homemade jams were definitely enjoyed by all. The afternoon of poetry at Broc House was refreshing, especially for someone to invite you into their own home and share a homemade lunch and beautiful poetry by Yeats. The Medieval dinner was when everyone could let go and just have fun joining into the storyline. Glenveagh National park was beautiful as you walked through the gardens. Blarney Castle was a beautiful walk and day trip. My husband managed to climb the stairs and kiss the famous “Stone of Eloquence”. I walked the gardens and enjoyed speaking to others enjoying the same experience. I thoroughly enjoyed the Jaunting car we rode to Ross Castle and the stories and jokes.
The hotels were very nice and food was great! We had a Whiskey tour, Guinness tour, and learned to make Irish coffee. The castles, ruins, churches and many other stops kept us going all day. We had our own time to enjoy shopping, or more sightseeing. The end of the day most of us would get a drink and sit and relax at the bar, or outside in the beautiful weather. We only experienced one day of rain, the 11 days that followed were +25 to + 30 degrees Celsius. This is not what most would expect from Ireland. However, being used to these lovely temperatures in Canada we managed quite well. I believe the only complaint was the unexpected warm temperatures.
My thank-you to all involved, in providing both my husband and myself with a beautiful 25th Wedding Anniversary trip, that we will not soon forget. We took over 3000 pictures and will have these memories forever. Aisling you are truly remarkable and I thank-you for all your assistance.

It is a trip we will never forget...
Many thanks to you for a wonderful trip to Ireland. It is a trip we will never forget.
The self-drive tour was perfect for us. We really got to use our five senses to experience Ireland. We were free to get up when we wanted, eat when we wanted and stop when we wanted. It was perfect.
We had three main goals while planning this trip: see as many of the sights as possible, visit as many small pubs as possible, and eat as much seafood as possible. We did not fully accomplish these goals. I guess we must return!
We did see many of the main attractions and were amazed with the age of the castles, the beauty of the cathedrals, and the overall beauty of the country.
We did get to see and drink in many small pubs. People were always so very friendly and helpful.
And we did eat seafood as much as possible. Friends told us the food was bland and boring in Ireland. Totally untrue. We were not disappointed with any of our meals during our two weeks. Our meals were delicious. The fresh seafood was over the top great. The seafood chowder was the best we ever tasted. Our first experience with the chowder was in Waterford. It was pouring down rain so we stopped in a very small cafe-diner. We ordered the seafood chowder and it was terrific. So creamy and so full of fresh seafood.
Our hotels were very good and the weather for the two weeks was unexpectedly sunny. We had only two half days of rain and unexpected quick showers on a few days. It rained in Waterford and at Giant's Causeway. Actually, it was pouring down rain at the Giant's Causeway. While I was taking pictures, my wife got back on the bus. Not paying attention, I continued to take pictures while she and the bus returned to the Visitor Center. She waved to me while I was slipping off a rock and filling my shoe with water. The weather for the trip was chilly, but the sun was out the vast majority of the time.
Thanks again for all you did to make this a great trip and experience.
