Your Accommodation while Touring the South West of Ireland: Dingle Skellig Hotel
While on your family vacation of Ireland, we understand that it is sometimes difficult for families to move from hotel to hotel so our Ireland with Kids tours are ‘one-centred’ and planned in such a way as you would just collect your rental car, drive to your hotel base and check in for the duration of your vacation. When you confirm your tour with us you will receive a comprehensive tour pack which will include numerous day tours that you can chose to take from your base location. You may decide to take all of the day tours, some of them or you may simply choose to enjoy the great family facilities of your hotel and its surroundings.
Private Chauffeur Tour of Ireland
We had a wonderful trip. It’s hard to plan for nine people of varying ages (4 to 85), interests and mobility, but I think everyone did something they liked! I found it useful when planning the trip to use your suggested itineraries to get an idea of what would appeal to families, to set a reasonable route and to find good hotels. The chauffeur aspect was really invaluable and took the stress out of having to rent and drive a large group. I found our dealings with your office to be prompt and professional. I would definitely recommend your services to others.
The hotels were all well-chosen – comfortable, good amenities, decent restaurants. My sister (mother of the 4 year old) was especially happy to have a full kids club in Dingle so she could get a little break (although she ended up spending her time doing laundry!) The kids especially loved the Dromoland Castle, with its go-karts and pool. I found it handy to have everything prepaid.
Hiring a driver was the right thing to do and Bill was delightful. He shared his enthusiasm for his homeland and gave us an insider’s view, finding us nice little places to eat and to explore. He was punctual, safe and dependable – we won’t soon forget him!
There was a little communication issue at the start. He asked my sister and dad if they had anything in particular in mind for the trip and they said not really. I on the other hand had done a lot of research and had a better idea of what I wanted to accomplish each day. Bill believed he was going to show us everything his way, while I was expecting something else. Once we sorted that out, it was smoother sailing. I’m wondering if it might not have been useful for us to email our planned excursions ahead of time? Just a thought.
Attached you’ll find a few pics of the trip, including a selfie with Bill on the last day. I'll attach a few more to the next email.
Again, many thanks!
