The trip was excellent, couldn't have asked for better weather and the people were overly friendly.
Our favourite place was in Doolin, Susan was amazing. The four of us agreed that the experiences in Doolin; Cliffs of Moher, O'Connor's Pub, boat trip to the cliffs were our favourite experience.
We truly enjoyed our stay at the Inn in Killarney, how could you not - great rooms, great food & service. The town itself was beautiful and a nice place to spend St. Patrick's Day. While there we went horseback riding (Killarney Riding Stables) it was a nice way to spend the morning and the scenery was breathtaking.
The Hotel in Kinsale was a perfect location, overlooking the harbour. The town itself was a great town to walk and explore. We hooked up with a local, who offers tours of the town and offers a history lesson, he was a great resource while in the town.
In regards to the rental vehicle, we all agreed that the driving on the "wrong side of the road" was an interesting experience and where glad that we opted to rent an automatic vs standard transmission.
The package that you provided with all of our reservations, itinerary etc made checking in a really smooth process, we had no problems with any of the hotels, B&B's or car rental.
So in conclusion, I can only say on behalf of myself and travelling companions that we had no complaints, concerns or other wise. In fact I have advised friends and family that have enquired that the trip went smoothly thanks to your company and in more particularly because of you.
Thanks for all your help and assistance
