Who was your Travel Expert? ReneeNicole Crystal Travel feedback

How were your accommodations? Great. Burke’s Mulbur House in Killarney was excellent. Beautiful, clean and Jacqui was the best. She made our visit so much fun. Staying in Doolin was fun and the Aran view inn was nice. Great views of ocean and cliffs of moher. The Glenlo Abby b&b in Galway was also great. It was my husbands favorite. Bernie was so friendly and welcoming and her house was comfortable. The Lough Rynne castle was stunning. Clontarf castle was also so beautiful. The biggest accolades that we can give is that the people at each place were lovely and went out of their way to make us feel at home. They have great recommendations for restaurants and things to see.

Did everything go smoothly with your transportation? Yes. Flights were great. No issues at all. Besides learning to drive on the left, the car was great and it was nice to have the basic insurance included. We saw many people have an issue with this when picking up their car yet we had no issue at all.

What tours, attractions, or activities did you particularly enjoy? Loved the Killarney area the best. Great town, beautiful National Park. Also the Cliffs of Moher and Doolin were great.

What was your favorite part of the trip? Exploring the villages and the pub culture.

Would you travel with us again? Yes. No improvements I can think of!

Our trip was absolutely amazing. My husband said it was the best vacation that he’s been on. We were amazed on how everything went off so easily we had no issues with our flight, car rental, or accommodations. Besides driving on the wrong side of the road LOL. I must say that I was really happy that we had the basic insurance for the car included. There were many people picking up cars that had issues with this.

The place we stayed in Killarney , Burke’s Mulbur house, was great. I think it was actually my favorite place. The house and property were lovely. The hostess, Jacqui, was wonderful. She took the time today to talk about the area and give us suggestions on what to see and do. She even gave us a ride into town the first night we were there. Breakfast was delicious and the small touches like tea and coffee in our room and a jar of cookies was great. This place was about 10 minutes out of town. We had no issues taking cabs back-and-forth.

The cliffs of Moher where spectacular. We really enjoyed staying in the small town of Doolin for that night. It was true, the pubs there had excellent music and the locals were very friendly. The place we stayed there, the Aran view country inn was nice. The views of the class and the ocean were a nice even though there was not a spot to sit outside enjoy them. They were also very friendly there yet the place is a little bit dated in it’s decor but you could tell that they were in the process of remodeling.

The glenlo Abby bed-and-breakfast in Galway was my husband‘s favorite place to stay. The hostess there was also very friendly and very helpful. It was a short five minute drive into city center. They had a nice front porch that guests could sit out on and enjoy the view. There’s a very nice hotel/golf course right across the street where we enjoyed dinner and drinks in their bar.

The Lough Rynne castle, Where we stayed on our way towards Dublin, was absolutely breathtaking. It reminded me of Downton Abbey. Even though it was a little remote, we didn’t mind staying there for the evening. The grounds are beautiful for walks and we had a fun time having dinner and drinks there and just enjoying this historic place.

Clontarf castle in Dublin was also beautiful but a little bit more modern. There was a bus stop right down the street that would take you into Dublin. It also was easy and not too expensive to take cabs. Breakfast here was like a five star buffet. Delicious.

All in all, this was an amazing trip and I felt like we got to see a good part of Ireland in such a small amount of time. Thank you again for everything! We will definitely book a trip again with you soon.
