    Questions & Answers

    Question: How many suitcases can I take with me on my trip?

    Each person is allowed one "check-in," and one "carry-on." Remember to take all valuables with you as "carry-on", because electronic equipment, cameras, laptops, jewelry, business documents and money are not covered by the airlines' liability, so always carry them aboard with you.

    Question: Is Airfare Included in the Price?

    Airfare from your point of origin to and from the trip is not included in the land price.

    Very pleased with the quality of hotel accommodations and the good balance of tour activities and free time.

    Trip was very good and Gate 1 did a good job of getting us to see a lot of the country in a short time. Eliminating Waterford anf adding an extra night in Dublin would have been a better use of time. The Traecey (SP) Hotel was substandard and not in keeping with my previous experience on this trip and another Gate 1 trip

    Everthing was according to plans,no hiccups and Rachael was wonderful to me,I am so tecniacally challenged

    I felt the accommodations EXCEEDED the price we paid!!! I was so pleased!

    Awesome experience - everything went off without a hitch! Excellent value. Some of the rooms in the hotel had "sub standard" views but overall were fine.

    The small cart for two was replaced with a wagon for eight. Not the experience we paid for.
