Here’s what they had to say about their trip:


Full Name Phyllis and John

How would you rate your trip overall? 5 stars

Who was your Travel Expert? Ann

How were your accommodations? Great. Adare Manor is our favorite: architecture, park setting, beautiful room with fabulous view. No charge for the mini-bar! Powerscourt is a very close second as we had a suite with a beautiful view. The space was large, light, and very comfortable. Park Hotel also had a great view. We had a very large room with comfortable sitting area. Hayfield Manor rates last as our room was small and had no view. All of our accommodations were immaculate.

Did everything go smoothly with your transportation? Yes. Aer Lingus was on time, comfortable, and we were treated very well. Good service and very friendly flight crew. Our driver, John Rice, whom we dubbed Sir John, was unbelievable! Stories! History! And he drove us up and down the mountains to the Black Valley and the Gap of Dunloe and the up again to Healey’s Arch! Those roads! Yikes! And he knew them like the back of his hand. Very accommodating. The car was comfortable and always clean.

What tours, attractions, or activities did you particularly enjoy? There wasn’t anything we didn’t love. All the tours had special meaning. The private tours worked best for us, but all the tours were excellent. On time. Extremely knowledgeable tour guides. Very friendly.

What was your favorite part of the trip? Being in Cobh. Seeing the harbor and the reverse view up the hill to the church. Most likely the same sites my great grandfather saw when he left Ireland in 1871.

Would you travel with us again? Yes. We can’t think of a thing. Ann did an awesome job.

Any other questions or comments? Ann did an awesome job with our itinerary. Our trip was a dream come true. Absolutely NO glitches or problems. And, as promised, the planes landed safely.
