By Raymond F on Sep 13, 2019

The last day of the trip, CIE dumped us at a hotel. They hired a GET On Get Off bus to take us into Dublin the next day for touring. The Tour Guide told us to get to a certain stop and use the train to get back to the hotel. It was a problem figuring out how to get back to the hotel. The train stop was a 1/2 to 3/4 mile from the hotel. This is the 1st tour that I have taken that the touring company didn't take you to airport. The transfer that they sell to the airport is on a bus or a train which is a long haul from the hotel dragging your luggage. I liked the tour up to that point.

By Lynn B on Aug 29, 2019

Jack was extremely helpful in booking my tour. He answered all my questions and got back to me quickly if I left a message or sent an email. There was an issue with the transfers to the hotel when I arrived (solved in a short time) and I notified Jack and he made sure everything was set up on the transfer back. I would use and recommend Affordable Tours and Jack.

The accommodations were in good hotels. But the allotted rooms especially for us are not up to the mark.

By Takako T on Jun 01, 2019

My daughter and I requested two single beds but sometimes we had a double bed, though we were given a king-size bed after our re-request at the hotel front.

By James E on May 16, 2019

While the tour was well plan, the days seemed rushed each morning and early starts might be reviewed to make the tour more manageable for travelers. I would also suggest that CIE consider a down day each week with optional tours for those who wish to see additional sights but allow for others to rest or just relax during the tour to minimize fatigue during the tour.. I have traveled on other bus torus providing this and it gave me a respite from the daily tour routine.

By Lynda S on Apr 27, 2019

The 14 day trip around Ireland was absolutely stunning. We experienced the Irish people, our driver and tour guide were outstanding. I highly recommend this trip.

By Carolyn W on Apr 04, 2019

13 days was too much for me physically. It has nothing to do with the tour.....Ireland is beautiful and I enjoyed it so much.....

By Kathleen B on May 21, 2011

We enjoyed this trip immensely. The stops were varied,and interesting. Our Tour Guide/Driver was fabulous, a wonderful representative for Ireland and CIE tours. Aer Lingus was great, The hotels were wonderful and the meals, breakfast and Dinners were excellent (first class). All of our extra tour guides were friendly, helpful, interesting and fun. There was a lot of interaction with all the guides and within our Group. We were lucky to have a relatively small group . 20 people so we all got to know each other and had a great time. Thank you
