This travel company put together our itinerary on fairly short notice. Hotels were very good with the exception of back-of-the-hotel rooms at the hotel in Galway. They made some good suggestions about side tours.
The Aran Islands and Dingle Peninsula were favorites. Some of the countryside was not as plush as anticipated because of the lack of rain, but it was nevertheless lovely. The people we met were warm and helpful.
We stayed several nights in two cities to avoid repacking each night. However, that resulted in long drives each day out and back. In retrospect, moving each night would have been preferable. And we would have spent longer in Dublin.
Travel Companies Comments:
Dear Connie, Thank you so much for your feedback and for traveling with our company. We understand that Ireland is currently experiencing unusually high temperatures and dry weather the last few weeks which can certainly change the overall experience. The locals are a bit distressed to see the countryside burned and hoping for some long days of rain soon to help bring it back to life. I am happy to hear you had a wonderful time despite the current heatwave.
I am glad you were able to use this vacation as a learning experience with the itinerary and driving around Ireland. Everyone is different in how they like to travel so we do our best to narrow down the option that makes the most sense based around what you are looking to do. I understood it was your preference to have more of a "home base" in each area vs. moving around to too many places to avoid driving each day. This can be a great experience to enjoy a more leisurely type of trip with the rental car at your disposal for day trips out of town as you wish based around our daily itinerary recommendation. I am thrilled to hear that you made it out to the Dingle Peninsula which is stunning and best toured by car from Killarney town!
Thanks again Connie. I hope to have another opportunity to assist you with another vacation to Ireland --- or maybe Scotland, England, Wales
