Thanks for your email and interest in our level of satisfaction to our recent trip to your Country.
The entire trip was outstanding.
We found RyanAir easy to use and offering an excellent and well honed service. The itinerary was right and the accommodation was good with a special mention to Tom & Val Rothwell at Kilkenny. Tom & Val were exceptional and set the scene for a memorable visit for us. They provided a service and a welcome that was far and above that what was expected.
We chose to drive on more minor roads than major and so avoided the tourist rush and probably saw more than most. We sought and accepted the advice of our hosts and without exception was right.
The only thing that we would do differently would be to spend another day in Dublin and probably drive in the opposite direction.
In conclusion, all thanks must be given to you for your professional and informed assistance that you provided to me during the planning time of our trip. This was most appreciated and made our holiday to Ireland easy and enjoyable.
