Vacations/Holidays in Ireland for 2015
An Irish vacation is always something that most Irish Americans dream of, and when it does come to pass, it rarely disappoints. For many, it does not become practical until later in their lives, due to family or job commitment. For others, it is simply a vacation that they have saved up for down through the years. Many of my clients have very little information with regard to exactly where their ancestors actually came from, they just know that it was Ireland. Maybe they may know what county, but little else.
Let me say, that even with very little information, it does not seem to spoil their holiday.
Just being here seems to spark something in their spirit. For some it is like a feeling that they have been here before. Others sense that somebody, or something, is welcoming them back to the land of their birth. It has been my privilege to have witnessed the tears in the eyes of people who have just been overcome by their emotions, for some unexplained reason.
If an Irish vacation is in your plans this coming year, maybe now is the time to start planning. Unless you have been here before, then i think it would be a very good idea to get expert advice on what might be best for you. Do you think that you can drive here yourself ? The pictures above, and below, will give you an indication of what might be ahead of you. Narrow winding roads, mainly in the most beautiful out of the way places where you will see the real Ireland. Dingle, the Ring of Kerry, Connemara, the Cliffs of Moher, Donegal, the Wild Atlantic Way, and many many more beautiful places. Remember that you will also be driving on the wrong side of the road. Driving is heavy traffic in the cities is also not very nice. That is never easy.
If you decide that driving yourself is not an option, then you either have to go the bus tour route, or else treat yourself to the chauffeurdriven option. You may be pleasantly surprised with what i can offer you on that option, and there is no better way of doing it. Let us do the driving. Do not forget that your driver is also a professional guide and advisor, and he will be with you all of the time. This is also a huge benefit in cases of emergencies,or simply if you want advice on where to eat, where to shop, and of course where the best pubs with the best music may be.
This is normally a quiet time for me for the touring side of my business, but it is the time i am busiest dealing with enquiries for the coming season. Therefore i have not been Blogging as much as maybe i should, but from now on i will be Blogging more regularly with more information on Ireland and how best to prepare for your vacation.
