Our vacation was wonderful. The lodgings in Kilarney and Kilkenny were incredible! My sister and I found the B&B in Kilarny especially to be everything we were hoping for in our vacation. Mary was a delight! The food was wonderful and her knowledge of the area was exactly what we needed to give us direction with our plans. Service at all of the places we stayed was above par but Mary went above and beyond. The views from our B&B in Kilkenny were worth the stay entirely. I only wish we'd had more time to soak in more of that town as we did in Killarny. Thank you for your diligent work in making our trip everything we hoped it would be.
Our time in Ireland was relaxing and refreshing. Thank you once again for the lovely time.
