This Ireland travel agency went over and above on the planning of the vacation. We had a nice trip. However, a couple of things that were issues. First, we felt we did not receive complete information to be prepared adequately for hotels, the rental car, destinations, currency conversion, etc.
The staff were always responsive and attentive to our requests and needs.
The best experiences were the following:
The Sheep Dog Demonstration in the Ring of Kerry.
The Hawk Walk at Ashford Castle.
The Dunluce Castle in Bushmills.
Irish music at a hostel in Galway.
LOVED Dublin and would have stayed there for many more days!
I would choose some very specific destinations, not drive as far. Would still self-drive.
Would love to have seen if there was an experience of staying with a farming family and experience "life on an Irish farm."
Would likely check out staying in B&B's versus hotels (they were very impersonal.)
Would try harder to live in the moment and not try to "see" as much as possible.
Would have loved to have had information on any Celtic shows we could have seen in the places we stopped at. We did not get that information or opportunity.
TRAVEL COMPANY COMMENTS:
Thank you for the review - we appreciate the feedback. Having been in contact with you regarding the above issues I'm surprised at some of your comments. Your final itinerary included links to all hotel sites which showed detailed directions and information about parking. Your in depth guide to Ireland included detailed currency information which we are updating at your recommendation to include the fact that you should always ask for your credit card to be charged in the local currency. Your suggested itinerary included details of pubs where you could see authentic Irish music and dancing with no cover charge rather than the "canned tourist experience" of a Celtic show however we would have been happy to arrange this had you mentioned it. As we told you from the start B&Bs in Ireland are not a luxury product and therefore we do not offer them. For your next trip I would be happy to recommend a less luxury provider who might better suit your requirements.
