Franci and I had a wonderful time in Ireland and the tour you arranged for us was great. The castles were incredible and the hotels were top notch. The country was even more beautiful than we had imagined and the people everywhere were very friendly. We left wishing we had more time in Ireland—but now we can just plan on coming back.
For me, the high point of the trip was a Saturday morning 8 mile guided hike through the mountains at Ashford Castle. There were 5 of us on the hike. We hope to take another tour with you. I am thinking of the literary tour of Dublin.
