We had a wonderful time in Ireland! The hotels were lovely, and we especially enjoyed the manor houses. Top-notch food and service! The travel itinerary you sent us provided lots of options for our daily adventures and was an excellent reference. Driving wasn't nearly as scary as I had imagined! It took about a day to get the hang of it but were both quick learners and the car was returned without a scratch. The hardest part was keeping our eyes on the road with so much beautiful scenery! We were very lucky to have excellent weather during our trip so we got to enjoy some hiking, horse riding and golfing.
Thank you for your help in organizing an incredible and memorable holiday!
