We returned this week from an amazing eight-night trip to Ireland with my husband and two daughters. This Ireland travel agency was instrumental in helping us plan a fantastic itinerary personalized for our family's tastes and hobbies. Their travel specialists were very responsive to all of my requests, answering my many questions and arranging our reservations. Our personal driver was friendly, knowledgeable, a superb tour guide, and an expert at adjusting schedules to accommodate our interests. Our family has had the pleasure of traveling quite a bit, and this was a top-notch, fantastic travel experience.
We flew into Dublin where we were met by our driver Steve. We visited Rock of Cashel and the Blarney Castle as we made our way to Cork where our daughter is studying. We spent a single night at the beautiful River Lee Hotel before heading to Killarney for three nights at the Malton Hotel--a perfect base from which to explore Killarney National Park and the Ring of Kerry.
I can't rave enough about our amazing experiences. We attended Easter mass at the cathedral in Killarney where two of my ancestors were married and drove through the town in West Cork where many lived. It was intriguing to see family surnames on storefronts as we drove through the picturesque areas. We enjoyed a fantastic jaunting car ride from the Malton through Killarney National Park. The "jarvey" was awesome and allowed my horse-obsessed daughter to drive the cart through the stunning Killarney National Park. The jaunting car took us to The Danny Mann pub where we enjoyed some great traditional Irish music. My husband also had the chance to golf at the stunning Tralee Golf Club along the coast while my daughters and I enjoyed horseback riding in the surf and sand along Derry Strand arranged through the Tralee Equestrian Center.
