As a return visitor to Ireland and as a seasoned traveler, who has taken over 20 tours around the world, there is no question that the guide makes the tour. We hit the jackpot with Mark Doherty, "the renaissance man". He entertained our group every...More

I made a mistake in my earlier reply. Dinner is on your own as well but again the good st the inns you stay at or in the town options are wonderful. Expect to pay 20 to 30 Euros for your evening meal.
