  • BEST OF IRELAND VIDEO

    #3 Posted : Wednesday, February 10, 2016 3:00:51 PM

     

    Alan S. Thank you for your comments. It did take a long time to produce and I am glad you liked it. As to your questions. 1. Small group tour--26 people. Heartily recommend. Everyone always on time--no waiting for anyone. Also got to know most well. 2. Tour was Sept 15-28, 2015. According to my research, Sept is best month to be in Ireland. 3. We had a few sprinkles of rain but only while driving or for short stop in Galway. Never really impacted what we were doing. Otherwise weather was beautiful, sometimes cool. No shorts, wore layers. 4. We arrived 2 days before tour, Sept 13 (Flew Sept 12). Made reservations for the Bunratty Medieval Dinner months in advance for the next night following arrival (highly recommend), went early to tour the castle (great) and Folk Park (not so great). We hired the driver who picked us up from the airport to take us to Bunratty and take us back--convenient and not that expensive. 5. The Old Ground Hotel is in a great location and walking to good restaurants and pubs. No reservations necessary and fun to experience local flavor. Ennis is neat town. Would also recommend taking in Ennis Friary. 6. We stayed extra night in Dublin, took Hop-on, Hop-off bus tour and went on Musical Pub Crawl in Temple Bar, which I would heartily recommend. Again made reservations months in advance. 7. Recommend getting both Fodor's and Frommer's Ireland guide books. They complement each other. Good information and ideas for planning free time. Tauck tour is the best--do it and have fun!

    Hello, Happy Wed.:)) Could someone please... share their thoughts & experience on the air balloon option , is it really worth it? how early do you have to be ready and would I have enough time for breakfast between this activity and the actual tour visit to the veg. & spice market. Also @ the Veg.-Spice market do we have time to shop? I would love to buy some spices. Thanks.

  • Australia 2017

    Gigi: This will be my first trip to Australia/New Zealand as well. I wanted to save this trip for a time when I didn't have to rush home. I am retiring on December 31 and this trip will be my reward - I can't wait! I am also considering a side trip to Tasmania but need to figure out the timing (beginning or end of trip, if at all). I would appreciate feedback from anyone about the value of adding Tasmania to an already long and expensive trip; what is there to see and do?

Some couples really know how to live. Take my mother and stepfather. After they got married, in a garden in California, they went on a yearlong honeymoon in Europe. That’s right. An entire year. They sojourned at a 19th-century spa in Hungary, looked at art in France, investigated the pubs of Dublin, explored Loch Lomond in Scotland… a...

Traveling is good for the mind and soul. It affects you long after you get home. I believe my travels have fundamentally changed the way I experience life, even when I am not traveling. It’s as though I am always on a trip now, even when I am home. I had an experience that brought that home to me vividly a few weeks ago.
