Ms. Eileen Govaert
We loved the itinerary, the town of Adare, the people and the tour guides along the way. We liked having a home base and appreciated not having to plan ahead.

Trip of a life time
Accommodations and tour experience was A plus.
CIE Tours Customer
I liked the itinerary especially staying in one hotel for 5 nights. I chose Small group option s as not to have a full bus.
Only problem was before the tour. CIE would not accommodate us providing a transfer from Shannon because our flight was scheduled to arrive @11:20. Other tour company I use will accommodate any arrival/departure time. I contacted the hotel and they were kind enough to arrange a car.
