Katrina did a very good job helping me organize my trip in late June. She booked all of my accommodations, two short tours and my rental car. Everything worked out well and I had a lovely time during my eight-day stay.
We had a wonderful time. The B&Bs were very nice, good locations, great breakfasts. We had no trouble driving from place to place. The hotel in Dublin was fantastic. We went to Blarney Castle, Waterford, and Dingle Peninsula.
We just got back yesterday from our amazing 8 day holiday in Ireland. Thank you so much for helping us put it all together, it was really better than we could have hoped. Dave was incredible and made each day the best it could be.
