Ireland's most popular destination with Dove chauffeurdriven service and Dave Hogan
They have reintroduced the eagle in certain areas in Ireland in recent years, something that is not popular with farmers, as they do prey on smaller animals, especially lambs. This picture i took from a boat on Lough Laune in Killarney.
A visit to Ireland is a must, especially for those people with Irish Ancestry. It can be really difficult to plan for people who have never been here before, and who are maybe relying on on others, who have been here, but are not really qualified to give you the best of advice on what to see and what to do. The real problem is that there is so much to see, and most of it is lovely. But when you are here on a once in a lifetime visit, you want to see the best. This can vary from person to person, as we all have our individual tastes. Some people want to see the cities, Dublin being the main one, and there is much to see there that is worth seeing. I recommend a couple of days there, using the Hop-On Hop-Off buses. Cork city is also popular, with the harbour town of Cove being one of the main attractions in that area.
Galway, my own favourite, is really special, and its location on the West coast beside Galway Bay, is a wonderful location for touring the Aran Islands, Connemara and the Cliffs of Moher.The night life there is also wonderful.
I love, and highly recommend, the Western seaboard, The Wild Atlantic way. covering all the way from County Cork to Donegal in the far North. This includes places like the Ring of Kerry, the Beara peninsula, the Dingle peninsula, the Gap of Dunloe, the Burren of County Clare, Connemara, and Achill island in county Mayo, Sligo, and Donegal of course.
If you do appreciate spectacular scenery, the rugged Atlantic coastline, the mountains and valleys and glacial lakes, the boglands and of course the animals, then rural Ireland will not let you down.
If you are having difficulty planning, just drop me a line. Maybe we can work something out together.
