Optional excursions, such as a night at the dogs, evening of traditional Irish music & dance etc can be arranged. This tour is available in 3 or 4 star hotels. The following are some examples of the hotels in each category. Bunratty Castle (Irish: Caisleán Bhun Raithe, meaning Castle at the Mouth of the Ratty) is a large tower house in County Clare, Ireland. It lies in the centre of Bunratty village (Irish: Bun Ráite), by the N18 road between Limerick and Ennis, near Shannon Town and its airport. The name Bunratty, Bun Raite (or possibly, Bun na Raite) in Irish, means the 'bottom' or end of the 'Ratty' river. This river, alongside the castle, flows into the nearby Shannon estuary. From the top of the castle, one can look over to the estuary and the airport. Bunratt...read more
sorry it has taken so long for me to get back with you. As soon as my wife and I arrived back from Ireland we began the process of moving and we are still settling in at our new place. As for the trip you planned for us I speak for both my wife and myself when I say it was EXCELLENT!!!! Not only was everyone welcoming and helpful but the itinerary you set out for us was perfect. One of the aspects of the trip that we are very glad we ended up doing was staying at bed & breakfasts when available. Not that the hotels we stayed in weren't nice, but the bed & breakfasts gave us a more intimate stay and allowed us find out more about the surrounding areas and culture.
One part of our trip that you recommended that we did not follow was doing a day trip to the Cliffs of Moher. While we did get to see the Cliffs, we only stopped there for about 90 minutes on our way from Killarney to Galway. I would continue to strongly recommend to visitors that they make the Cliffs of Moher a day trip from Galway or another nearby town since the Cliffs really deserve more than 90 minutes in order to "take it all in".
Finally, I would say that the only disappointing part of our trip was Trinity College and the Book of Kells. Trinity College and the Book of Kells as you know are two of the biggest attractions in Dublin, but we felt for the price of admission they were not worth it. The Trinity College tour did not go into as much depth as we had hoped and also did not take us on a tour of inside any of the buildings. As for the Book of Kells, the history of it is very interesting but I think the high price of admission caused my wife and I to raise our expectations so high that there was impossible for the actual exhibit to meet them. Please don't misunderstand me, I think the Book of Kells and Trinity College are worth touring but in my opinion I would put towards the middle or bottom of the priority list while in Dublin.
By the way, I attached five photos from our trip. Hopefully they are what you are looking for and you are able to use them on your website. Again thank you for all the great work you did for us and if there is any way Carmela and I can help your company or future guests to Ireland please let us know.
