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!

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!

I look forward to returning to Ireland again soon!
I want to thank you for all your help we had a wonderful time and found the people of Ireland to be very friendly and helpful
The hotels were very nice - my personal favorite was the castle (Solis Lough Eske)! Our car was just the right size. We enjoyed all the attractions that we made it to, only missing a couple due to time - but ended up doing a few different things - like taking a ferry.Again, it was a pleasure working with you!! I look forward to returning to Ireland again soon!
Thanks so much,

Two weeks ago our three couples returned from a magically, amazing 10 days in Ireland. Prior to our departure we often contacted Allison with questions about itinerary, insurance, etc. Allison always responded promptly and with insight. With her assistance we collectively built an itinerary. Bright and early one morning in Dublin, our driver, Mike, appeared in his shiny 'bus' for the six of us. To say that our 'ride' was immaculate and constantly drew stares, would be an understatement.
Mike then led us, befriended us, on a beautiful tour of southern island.
All of our desired sites we had set up with Allison were visited. Along the way anecdotal stories about the countryside were revealed. On some occasions Mike sang to us. At lunch time Mike would always make a suggestion about where to go, often joining us. Likewise, at dinner, Mike always made suggestions about places to eat, even making reservations for us! Of course we visited all of our desired sites we had set up through Allison. Yet there were others that did not appear on the itinerary but 'were in the neighborhood' that left lasting memories, perhaps sprinkled with some laughter.
None of our group had ever been on a chaffered tour. All six of us would heartily endorse the experiences and the company that led us to enjoy them. To Allison and Mike, thank-you and we wish you all the best.

We had a marvelous time!
We had a marvelous time! Everything in Dublin was perfect, including the location of Camden Court. It was so nice to be able to leave the car at the hotel and walk everywhere. The hotel was beautiful and had the most delicious breakfast. Somehow, I managed to get the chef to give me the recipe for his brown bread, which I will make here as soon as I can find the right kind of flour.
One of our very favorite activities was the Doolin Cliff Walks with Pat Sweeney- if anyone is looking for a great way to see the Cliffs of Moher, this walk is much better than going to the visitor center.
Ballyseede Castle was great as it was a central location for a lot of our activities. I would highly recommend Muckross House and the farms for future visitors.
For future trips, you should warn Americans that there really aren't road signs like we are used to. We took a GPS device and we would have been quite lost without it. Once we figured out that sometimes there are signs on the buildings, we were better off, but definitely people should bring some kind of navigation system.
You did a great job booking our trip and you were even right about the driving - it wasn't too bad. We will definitely be coming back and we will be using your agency to put together our next trip.
Thanks again for all your help.
