This was my 3rd trip to Ireland and by far the best. Trip 1, we rented a car and used Rick Steves' book as our guide. Trip 2, we took mass transit / trains and buses and Rick Steves' book as our guide. But on this 3rd trip, we went with a private driver/ guide through A Rural Experience and it was by far the best of all 3 trips! Eddie, our driver/ guide (because he is much more than a driver), made our trip fun, relaxing and stress free. He is very knowledgeable about the area and we did the entire country, Eddie has a great sense of humor and lovely singing voice - go ahead- ask him to sing you a song :). When plans to see Skellig Michael were cancelled because of bad weather and the boats not running, Eddie found an alternative, the beautiful Cliffs of Kerry.....spectacular and peaceful (unlike the tourist flooded Cliff of Moher). If you're looking for the best fish & chips in the country, just ask Eddie.....he knows ..... and it is amazing! Also, you can have a pint with that fish and not a worry. Becky, our tour planner/ organizer, set up our entire itinerary making suggestions along our route for fun and interesting sights and activities. When our plans changed at the last minute and we needed an extra night of lodging, Becky came to the rescue with a recommendation for a fine B&B. She returns emails in a flash and you really do feel like you have family or a best friend taking care of you. This is the way to do it people! This is a family owned business where delighting the customer is the way they do business.
