Thomas C. | Ireland | June 2022

Thomas and Kathy traveled to Ireland in June 2022. They visited several locations around Ireland and finished the trip with a stay at the world-renowned Shelbourne Hotel. Here, they enjoyed five-star treatment before returning to the U.S.

Here’s what he had to say about his trip:

How would you rate your trip? 5/5
Who was your travel expert? Bridie
How were your accommodations? Great
What did you love? Park House – super convenient, nice staff, room okGreat Southern Killarney – great location, great breakfast, nice room, excellent pool and facilitiesKingsley – location wasn’t great, but being on river was nice (we didn’t have the good view) and health club/pool was excellentShelbourne – 5 stars, great location, excellent food, fantastic workout area/pool, unbelievable suite – one of the nicest places I’ve ever stayed
Did everything go smoothly with your transportation? Yes
What did you love? Flying into Shannon was a great idea. In fact, I’d like to fly out of there too given how crowded Dublin was. Car was fine and pickup was easy. Honestly wouldn’t have wanted a large car with size of roads! I had the hotel in Galway send a driver to pick up Kathy and that worked well too.
What tours, attractions, or activities did you particularly enjoy? Too many to list – we did most of the things on the itinerary. Loved Galway, Connemara, especially Sky Road, Dingle Peninsula (Conor pass), the ring of Kerry, Blarney castle, downtown Killarney, and the Dublin Gaol tour.
What was your favorite part of the trip? Hard to say, probably the west coast highlights, but loved the towns and cities too.
Would you travel with us again? Yes
How can we improve for next time? Nothing, you helped us when I had to change flights for Kathy the day before. Just a note – Originally Crystal thought that I had to completely rebook her ticket ~$1800, but Aer Lingus said I only had to rebook the first leg since she would be returning with me and that saved a lot of money.
Any other questions or comments? We’d love to work with you again. It was a great trip.
