The 2019 touring season in Ireland is all set to go, as the first real influx of tourists are about to flood into the country for the annual St Patric's day festival.
A lovely mild February morning in my garden.
Our Winter this past year has been one of the mildest and dryest for many years, so we are looking forward with optimism to the year ahead. The forecast for our tourist season is for a very busy one, so if you are making any plans with regard to a trip to Ireland, then it would be very wise to get to work on it straight away. We at Dove still have a certain amount of availability during the season ahead, and can get to work with you immediately if you contact us.
This Springtime evening sky had a really beautiful pinkness about it, which i am afraid i did not do justice to with my photo.
Driving yourself in Ireland may not be a great idea, as you have a little more than narrow winding roads to deal with. It is also hard to take in the beautiful scenery, and to keep your eyes on the road at the same time. Give us a call.
The west of Ireland is where i myself was born and reared, and to me, it is where the real raw beauty of Ireland can be seen, and enjoyed, at its best. Ruins, such as this famine time cottage above, bring you right back to those horrendous days when so many died from famine, and so many fled the country in order to simply survive.
There is no doubt about it, but there are many many people already looking forward to their first pint of Guinness here in Ireland on St Patrick's day. (another good reason for having your own driver).
We are all set to go here, and looking forward to hearing from you.

Celebrating Christmas early on a funfair ride.
This year i have decided against sending Christmas cards, and instead i am donating the cost of that to a couple of my favourite charities, The Children's Hospital in Crumlin in Dublin, and The Barretstown Castle, a special camp for children with cancer. Both of these places are really special, and i am sure you will understand when you do not receive a card from me this year.
You have all been so special to me, and your support over the years has been instrumental in helping me to build the business i have today.
Traveling with you through some of Ireland's most beautiful places has always been a pleasure for me, and seeing my customers enjoying this experience is what gives me the greatest satisfaction from what most times does not seem like a job at all.
Thank you all for being my friends, and please continue to send your families, and your pals, my way, i will do my best always to look after them.
God bless you all at Christmas, and may the New Year be kind and generous to all of you, and your loved ones.
Your pals in Ireland
Dave and Sue
