Irish traditions and heritage are explored next, during a visit to Bunratty Castle and its Folk Park, a living history museum that reveals insights into life in Ireland during the 18th and 19th centuries. Be sure to drop into Mac's for a pint and meet the Bean an Tí, in one of the thatched cottages, and try to spot a fairy.

Everything went like clockwork. All agents performed with great professionalism.
Vacation
The first visit to Ireland was much more than I expected. Our guide Liam Hogan was brilliant with his knowledge of Irish culture and history. He also told us a lot about Celtic spirituality, and his charming personality really made each of us feel very welcome. He treated our group as if it were the only group he ever toured with. Our driver John was just as wonderful!

loved the tour. It had been a long time since I had been on a tour. Exceeded expectations. I was expected a small group tour and somehow it morphed into 45 folks. The beds and first and last hotels were great. The rest were very hard. Had to use Duvet cover as a softner. The food was great. The driver and guide were excellent. All in all good value.
Response from Grand European Travel:
We love hearing that expectations were exceeded! You cant get much better. Thank you for sharing your comments.

We saw so many amazing sights with Allie. She had excellent knowledge about each town along the way. Most hotels were quite nice, in nice parts of town. Only 1 was in questionable location or subpar. We loved those that were within town for easy walking in evening. We also enjoyed the true locals on the pub excursions who entertained us with their Irish songs and dance. Our recommendation for tour would be to provide a better Welcoming Dinner, we found that the location was lovely but the food a poor quality compared to other restaurants we enjoyed in Dublin. But Allie did a fine job on getting us in & out of all attractions withIn a specific time so we saw a good deal of Ireland.
Response from Grand European Travel:
Thank you for your wonderful feedback and suggestions. We will be sure to pass them on to the team at Trafalgar.

Jill, our tour director, was a dream! So knowledgeable and provided insights into Irish living and customs. Her "hidden treasures" added a local feel to the tour. Steve, our driver, was probably the best driver I've ever had on a tour. This was the first international tour for some of my family and having Jill and Steve made their tour so enjoyable. This was my first time using GET but it won't be my last!!

GET's Specialists seem to know exactly what my friends and I need to book a great vacation. They help choose the right trip for us, listening to our preferences and travel accommodation requirements. It makes it so easy.
Vacation
I loved Ireland. The trip covered just the right things to entice me to return. Our tour director, Peter Flood was extremely knowledgeable and so willing to share facts and anecdotes. While the fog prevented us from seeing the Cliffs of Moher, the weather cooperated for the rest of the trip. I wish we could have stayed a little longer in Galway and Dublin, but that is a good reason to make a return trip. I was especially interested in the gardens and we saw some beautiful ones.

wonderful tour of Ireland. Very informative and fun. Jill was an excellent tour guide, and shared recipes and information with us daily. Our bus driver, John, was great, and gave extra help to a family traveling with young children. We all appreciated his help and driving ability.

Lovely trip. We had a wonderful tour guide, Jill and a great bus driver, John. We stayed in nice hotels and saw many beautiful places in Ireland. We enjoyed fellow travelers from all over the world, too. Jill added to our experience by playing CDs of Irish music and comedy. The food provided was good and music and dancers were wonderful.
