All the arrangements by Catherine went so smoothly that we were amazed relaxed and happy throughout the 6th of May Through the 23rd of May. The guide,the itinerary, the hotels, but most of all the people made it a fantastic experience. No complaints what so ever
Authentic Ireland never disappoints! We just returned from our 4th vacation planned by Authentic Ireland. They have planned 3 trips to Ireland and one trip to Scotland for us. Con Jager was great, as always, in helping us plan our perfect vacation! We really appreciate their services and will be back in the future! Thank you so much....we had an amazing time and an incredible new journey!
For our first trip to Ireland, we had a fantastic time! We extended our trip by one day, and there was still so much that we were not able to see and do! We did the Best of Ireland Self-Drive Tour! Lonna Powers was a great to work with in planning our trip! She was extremely friendly and helpful in making travel decisions! She selected top-notch hotels for us and the breakfast each day was fabulous! We added one extra day in Dublin and really could have used a 3rd day in Dublin to see everything! We had the Hop-On-Hop-Off Bus pass for 2 days, but after using it the first day, we realized that we would be able to see and do more with just walking! If you are in good walking shape, do not get the Hop-On-Hop-Off pass. It takes too long to move through the congested streets of Dublin! Walking is much better! Your hotel will be in the heart of everything! We got the smallest rental car available and trust me....that is EXACTLY what you want! The roads in Ireland are very narrow with high speed limits! The little car is great when you meet another car on the road! We did only carry-on bags, which made travelling super easy! We were able to have laundry done around the middle of our trip at a hotel, with a very reasonable rate! Highlights of the trip: Guinness Store House (I do not like beer, my husband LOVES it and we both really enjoyed the experience), Killarney area (I really could have stayed an extra 2 days in this area to see everything), Galway Bay Hotel and Salthill region was beautiful, Kerry Cliffs (we liked this area better than the famous Cliffs of Moher), The Jameson Experience in Midleton. The Lake Hotel in Killarney was our favorite hotel! Things I did not care for as much: Hop-on-Hop-Off Bus in Dublin (mentioned earlier), and the town of Cork (we did not do much in this town, it was really just a place to spend the night while we saw attractions all around the region. It was complicated to get to the hotel and we had to park pretty far away. Would have preferred something not in the heart of the city)! Great food too! We tried everything from fine dining, pub food, to gift shop food!
Our Vacation was outstanding. The hotel (City stay St. Augustine) in Dublin was centrally located to everything we wanted to visit. The staff there was courteous, and helpful.Our visit to Roscommon was grand, and our stay at Gleeson's B & B was also nice with great food.Authentic Ireland did a great job setting everything up, and making our vacation worry free.A million thanks to Lonna a job well done.
“5 days in Ireland”
Authentic Ireland was referred to me by a customer/friend of mine....and... i am so glad he did. We worked with Shannon, one of the representatives, and i couldn't be more happy with the experience and expertise that she had regarding details of our trip. I told her when we were arriving and leaving Ireland, what were the "must do" things during our stay, and what kind of accommodations we wanted to stay in. within a day or two, she had a full trip package, with other recommended things to do while there, sent to my email. the price was very reasonable, and after going on the trip, i appreciated the fact we used Authentic Ireland to get everything set up. kudos to the site and staff, especially Shannon. anytime i had a question, she had an answer. regarding car rental, electricity usage, what kind of money to keep on hand, anything... she was so much help. thank you so much!, you made our 20 year anniversary "holiday" that much better! the only thing i can even think about regretting, was that we didn't spend enough time there we spent the previous week in London, and think we should have cut that shorter and spent more time in Ireland... but.... that can be fixed by another visit! thanks again! your friends in Pennsylvania!
