Enjoyed every minute of our stay......
First let me say we enjoyed every minute of our stay in your lovely country. Everything went smoothly. It would be hard to select one place we stayed as above the others, all were outstanding, and the people made us feel very important. Aida and David at St Jude’s B&B in Rathmines made us feel like family. The suites at the Tower Hotel in Waterford made us want to stay in and not explore Waterford. Hayfield Manor House in Cork made us feel like we were among the elite people of the world, everyone learned our names and room numbers, and they worried about us finding everything we wanted both in the hotel and the city. Each person took time to assist us. After Cork, we moved off into the beautiful Irish country-side, and took many of our favorite photos. We were blessed to have taken a GPS from Hertz, as we wandered and several times needed assistance to get back on track. The Malton was crowded, since we arrived on Saturday evening, and many people were there for the weekend, plus it was raining and guests did not want to go out. We ventured out and found that the rain was centered over Killarney, and we had great weather touring the Dingle Peninsula. We took a side trip to Tuam to visit and old friend, then returned back to Dromoland for our next stay. Breathtaking is all we could say, it was my mother-in-laws dream come true. After two glorious days in Dromoland, we then returned to St Jude’s where David offered us a family-style welcome.
The trip was all we could have expected, and if we ever plan a trip to Ireland again, we will call you.
Thank you Gillian you helped our dreams come true.

What a wonderful time we had!
What a wonderful time we had! Beautiful country, friendly people, and so many options of what to see and do, make for a great vacation. Loved the castle hotel accommodations! The phrase "next time" became part of our conversations as we will definitely visit Ireland again. The self-drive tour offered us the flexibility we wanted to add to the suggested itinerary and fit in a round of golf for the hubby.
The detailed packet contained so much useful information. Any additional questions I had were responded to quickly, professionally, and in a personable manner. Thanks for making this an anniversary trip to remember!!
Until next time,

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!!

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.

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!
