How would you rate your trip?

Who was your travel expert?


How were your accommodations?

Great. It certainly was different sleeping in a castle –felt like a princess. All of the accomodations were great, yet different in ambience which was what we liked. All were perfect with locations as most of them we could walk to places to eat etc…Liked the Indigo hotel location on the Edinburgh side and not on the touristy side, but we could still walk to the touristy side. My favorite was the Courtmacsherry ambience — walking down the hill to dinner — spectacular countryside — no tourists – just wonderful Irish.

Did everything go smoothly with your transportation?

Yes. The cars were of the perfect size, not too big yet not too small, especially driving on the other side of the road. We were upgraded to a Mercedes in Scotland altho since I was in the back seat there was more room in the Skoda that we had in Ireland

What tours, attractions, or activities did you particularly enjoy?

Having high tea at Ashford castle was quite elegant. Took the jaunting car ride that was unique. Took the boat tour at the Cliffs of Moher — drive the Ring of Kerry and took the leisurely day of just stopping everywhere. Country is one of the most beautiful ever.

What was your favorite part of the trip?

Oh my gosh, there were so many I am not sure I can zero in on one specific one. The beauty of the country was breathtaking — visiting the castles, and the drive that we made through Ireland. You may wish to add to your notes that we stopped at Stirling Castle in Scotland and liked it better than Balmoral and Edinburgh castle.

Would you travel with us again?

Yes. No way could you improve. We quite understand with any trips there may be hiccups but you smoothed out the hiccups immediately.
