We had a phenomenal time and you put us in some great spots! Hmm…the only thing I can think about is that we weren’t sufficiently prepared dress wise for dinners at some of the hotels. I guess we go on holiday here and want to get away from business dress of all kinds, so probably just a difference that I wasn’t aware of. Anyway, our favorite hotel was in Connemara…great service, personable, and impeccable.
Thanks again for your help and for setting up a great holiday for us.
