We just returned from an amazing self-driving tour through Ireland arranged by this travel agent. We stayed at 4 different hotels --each unique and first rate in accommodation, convenience and service. I doubt we could have located these accommodations without our agent's in-country knowledge. I certainly did not expect such grand and majestic locations given our proposed budget.
She encouraged us to try special experiences, which turned out to be highlights of our journey (small plane to Aran Islands, dinner in the Pullman car at the elegant Glenlo Abbey, drive around the Beara Peninsula).
We were greeted at each hotel at check in with a note from our agent and a phone number should we need assistance. At our first hotel, we received a bag with all information clearly printed, vouchers, contact info and a small gift -- and the welcome cocktail at the hotel was a grand introduction to Irish hospitality.
We enjoyed venturing into the country (St. John's Point, Aran Islands, Beara Peninsula) as well as seeing historical sites in the towns we visited (eg:, Dublin, Derry, Donegal, Galway, Kenmare).
We will take our agent's suggestion and not try to cover as much territory. The driving distances are deceptive -- we Americans can't quite manage the narrow roads with the same speed as the Irish drivers! Alternatively, we could do less self-driving and use local drivers.
