Sharon Kaye Castle
The Boarder Collies herding Sheep was my highlight.
Enjoyed Killarney, Johnstown Castle, Dublin, Cliffs of Moher.
Did not care for Catamaran. Too slow, packed like sardines.
Felt the Abbey Tavern was not so good. Would have liked to hear how dancers got involved with Irish dancing.
More down time would have been nice, as we wore traveling a lot on the bus.
Brendan was excellent!!!!! Interesting stories. Location of hotel last day was not convienent for walking like the Ashling Hotel.
The grandchildren loved, loved Ireland. Made my heart sing to know they so enjoyed.
Ireland was Awesome
Loved all the stops and organization
Very disappointed! I don't recommend CIE Tours . . .
The tour itself was great and well worth the price we paid. However, as I stated in my review, there were continuous problems with the airlines and incorrect names on our tickets. The delayed flight was also a big issue. For what we paid for our trip, I should never have been out another $500.00 for mistakes made by others.

It was nice to not have to drive, as traffic was daunting.
