We are going to be dealing with Far & Wide and have been very happy so far. We are doing a package that includes staying in hotels in Dublin, B&B's where we receive vouchers, and then a castle. This way we get a taste of everything

I did call the Irish Tourist Board and request the information. Thanks to all for the idea!!!

We just spent 13 nights in B and B's and I would never travel any other way in Ireland. First of all there are few hotels anyway. The oweners were all kind, hospitable and the places were spotless. Try Town and Country homes in Ireland. They will send you a book, plan your trip and email for reservations, ensuite so you have a bathroom in the room. Don't use vouchers - the travel agencies charge about $15 a night more than the B and B's charge on their own - they all take email resrvations and Town and Country has a web site where you enter town and the places all come up. It's wonderful. Email me personally if you need more help. Dee

Hi Sharon,

First I agree with everyone. Get a new travel agent!!!

We will be going to Ireland for our 2 week honeymoon in September, and are doing the " self-drive" thing.I've done extensive research for a good price, & the best I found was Quinlan Tours in Cape May New Jersey.

We got round trip air (Aer Lingus) from Boston to Shannon//Dublin to Boston
automatic rental car (mid-size)7 days
CDW for the car (insurance)7 days
6 nights B&B (town & country)
For $684 pp
We're doing the 2nd week on our own.

If you'd like to contact them, the agent I dealt with is
Patti McKnight
www.quinlantours.com

Good Luck & Happy planning!!

Hey - Sharon won't be needing your suggestions SHE WENT TO IRELAND IN 1997!!

Look at the date of her post! Just because an old message is topped doesn't always mean it needs to be answered.

Carol, PLEASE email me privately about your research for your two week Ireland honeymoon! We're doing the exact same thing and I'd LOVE to get more advice/tips from you. I'm still doing as much research as possible and have been frustrated with countless travel agents who can't put a pkg together for us under $5k!!

ABSOLUTELY OK to stay on B&Bs in Ireland! Has your travel agent ever done it? I went with 3 others May 2000 for 2 1/2 weeks. Did not have a reservation mad eat ANY place in Irleand until at the end for Dublin. My friend who is a travel agent gave me a book she got from an Ireland travel promotion meeting. Ask your travel agent to just give you a book. We just picked it by the photo and located it (easy) and it was a totally charming and wonderful way to see Ireland - the only way I know how and it was GREAT. Have fun - be safe.

The B&Bs are great. Comfortable and just a great place to experience Ireland. The people, though, that run them, are the absolute best. I have heard of a few "iffy" hosts and hostesses, but the people we met were just great. Some of my favorite pictures from our latest trip there are of the B&Bs because they were just so great! I can't understand why someone would suggest against staying in a B&B, I usually hear only good about them. Hope you decide to stay in one or two.
