Kim and her husband Steve just got back from their Irish Road trip. Read about their adventures below!

 

What made you want to travel to Ireland?:
“We’ve always wanted to visit Ireland!”

Who was lucky enough to travel with you to Ireland?:
“My husband Steve came with me. We have been married for 26 years.”

Where were the top 3 places to visit on your wish list?:
“We hit all of the places we planned. KYLEMORE ABBEY, CLIFFS OF MOHER, DINGLE PENINSULA, MUCKROSS HOUSE, ROSS CASTLE, BLARNEY CASTLE, GUINESS STOREHOUSE, many pubs, friendly locals and the beautiful countryside.”

*TOUGH QUESTION ALERT! What was the best part about your vacation?:
“Killarney was a great location to see! There are so many sites to see in this beautiful country though so it’s hard to tell what was the best.”

What made you want to book your trip through Tenon Tours?:
“I saw Tenon Tours online after doing some research and the prices were reasonable for everything that we were offered in our package.”

How was your experience with your Personal Sales Representatives?:
“Manisha, Dominique, Samantha and others were very responsive to all my questions, providing me with many options and suggestions.”

How was the weather while you were traveling?:
“We had exceptionally sunny, beautiful weather. Locals thanked us for bringing it from Florida.”

Did travel insurance come in handy for you?:
“We purchased but luckily did not need. I have traveled previously and used the insurance, so I will never book travel without it.”

How did you feel about driving on the “wrong” side of the road?:
“We only had one incident… We got a flat tire the first day driving as a tour bus was coming towards us on a small road in Connemara National Park and was taking up most of the road. We hit a rock on the side of the road and got a flat. Learning lesson to pull over as far as you can and stop to let traffic pass. My husband changed the tire and we continued on to Kylemore Abbey. Thank goodness for the extra insurance which paid for the tire replacement. My husband drove really well however the small rural roads made me rather nervous in the passenger seat…”

What destination is next on your list?:
“Possibly Spain/Italy”
