Chauffeurdriven vacations in the west and south west of Ireland

Yesterday i began my latest tour when i collected Mark and Gloria at the Shelborne Hotel in Dublin. Our destination today was the fabulous Ashford Castle in Cong in the county of Mayo. It had been raining for most of my journey to Dublin but the sun shone brightly for us as we reached Ashford, as you can see from the photo above. Ashford castle is now under new ownership, having been taken over by the Red Carnation group. The hotel is undergoing a total transformation, and it really does look well. There is much to be done yet, but rest assured that your visit here will not be in any way spoiled by any work that is being done at present.
Here below are a few photos i took inside the castle this morning.


Here we have Gloria, saying goodbye to David, the concierge, as we prepared to leave this morning. Both Gloria and Mark had really enjoyed their stay here, especially their lovely fresh salmon meal last night.
Our destination today was Galway city where they are to spend tonight in the 5 star G Hotel. This is a really modern boutique hotel, with an amazing interior, designed by the renowned Philip Treacy.



Just a selection of photos from inside the G Hotel as Mark and Gloria relax after checking in.

Later, after taking a tour of the historic city of Galway, i left Mark and Gloria to stroll through the town centre and to enjoy what to me is Ireland's nicest town.

Tomorrow we begin our journey to the south, and to lovely Killarney. Come and enjoy it with us.
