Even though the weather was really bad, we had a very funny trip over to Lord Brandons cottage. Donal explained a lot and always had joke at hand. When the rain came we covered with a big tarp.

Wonderful 90 minutes guided boat ride through the lakes and connecting rivers of Killarney National Park. Donal, our guide, was great - funny, well informed and the perfect host. His passion for the flora and fauna of his home county was evident throughout, including his...More
