How would you rate your trip?

Who was your travel expert?


How were your accommodations?

Great. All the hotels were great! Our least favorite was the Maldron Hotel on Pearce St. No air conditioning and we were close to the street, so with the windows open, it was very loud. The castles were fun. All the hotels were clean. All the staff was wonderful. Food was great.

Did everything go smoothly with your transportation?

Yes. We had the best driver, Billy, and tour guide, Diane. We had difficulty getting to the airport even though we called for transport and told them we had five people. But, when the driver came to pick us up, we were told he could only transport 3. So he was kind enough to call and get us another car. Both drivers were wonderful.

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

We loved everything. CIE did a great job planning our activities. We did so much, we can’t remember all we did. The best locations, Edinburgh, Galway and the Cliffs of Moher. The tour guide in Galway was WONDERFUL!! We enjoyed the dinner at the Norton House. The entertainment was so much fun! Great memories. Nothing disappointed us. The sheep dog experience was fun, even in the pouring rain. Titanic was wonderful, although we could have used more time there. The dinner cruise was delicious. The singer was funny. Everything was amazing.

What was your favorite part of the trip?

I can’t narrow it down. Everything was perfect.

Would you travel with us again? 


How can we improve for next time?

If we could have more than one night in the hotels, that would be great. I think the elderly and disabled might need to be notified of the steps at the Blarney Stone and the Medieval Castle.
