Wild Atlantic Way tours with Dovechauffeurdrive and Dave Hogan.

Another happy ending, to a lovely Irish tour. My tour with my new Dutch friends, the Kleignan family, ended on Monday, when i left them back to Dublin, where they were to spend their last two days. This was a really lovely tour, spent with a lovely family, and it was sad to see them go.

 One of the many wonderful places this tour brought us to, during my time with my Dutch friends. This is the Poulnabrone Dolmen, an ancient tomb, dating back thousands of years, and located in the Burren of county Clare, close to the Cliffs of Moher.
 This, i am sure, will be one of the photos that will find a special place in their holiday album, and one that will bring back many happy memories in the years to come. Here we have, Lieke, and Renske, cuddling their baby lambs, on the Dingle peninsula.
My full group, together at Ross castle, on the shores of Lough Laune in Killarney.
Ien and Henk, happy together at the Cliffs of Moher. What a lovely couple they are, and what fun to be with.

Finally, all together, at Torc waterfall in Killarney. From the left we have, Henk, Niek and Timmo at the back, and Lieke, Renske and Ien at the front.

I can only say that this was another really special tour, and one i enjoyed very much. They will always be welcome back. Ien's siter, Mariette, and her husband Emile, and son Maarten, toured with me in the past, and i must thank them especially for sending this new group of their family to me. Maybe i will get the whole family to come someday. That would be really special. Thanks again to all of you, my new pals from Holland, and love to the rest of the family back home.

Dingle on Wild Atlantic Way chauffeureurdriven tour

Dingle in the rain. Today was the first really wet day of our tour, and not the best day for photographs. We did get a few though, as you can see here.

 Ien and Henk, pictured together at Slea Head at the tip of the peninsula.
 Dingle is famous for its Beehive huts, and here we have from the left, Henk, Niek, and Timmo, with the farmers dog, George.
 Lieke and Renske, enjoying their big moment with these baby lambs.
Another lovely picture of the girls, and the lambs seem to be quiet content and enjoying their cuddle too.

 Renske and Niek, cuddling against the chilly air at Slea Head.
Our final meal together tonight in the Caragh restaurant in Killarney. This is a great place if you like a really good home cooked style Irish meal, and my choice tonight was a really wonderful fish pie, assorted vegetables, mashed potato, and a side salad.  Too much really, but who cares when it is so nice. I can starve myself later.
 I have to confess that i have been questioning some photos of Ien,with men i thought were strangers, and much to my horror i have found out that those photos were not of Ien at all, but photos of her identical twin sister Mariette. How can i face her tomorrow?
This picture above shows Ien, with her lovely daughter Lieke, and below
Mariette, with this nice man on the hilltop, outside Waterville on the Ring of Kerry, when she toured with me a couple of years ago. I must have mixed up my pictures, i hate computers, how can i live this down. 
Sorry Ien, sorry Mariette, and sorry to husbands Henk and Emiel. My wife will kill me if she finds out.
Anyway, life goes on.
