Great choice of hotels and B&B for accommodations.

Staff of Exploring Vacations, Wow is all I can say!

Hotels were, pleasantly, what I expected, the meals were very good and plentiful, the tour guide was very informative.

Our driver was excellent, as the roads are quite trim, he kept us safe and sound. This was a good trip to get a feel for the different areas of your Island country. There were many times we wanted to stay longer at a location, but perhaps another time.

Great choice of hotels and B&B for accommodations.

Thank you for a memorable trip.

Thank you’ to you (and Exploring Vacations)

We would just like to drop you a note to say ‘thank you’ to you (and Exploring Vacations) for organizing our dream trip to Vacations. We told you what we had in mind and somehow you managed to put together the perfect itinerary with the right mix of sights and interesting places to stay. Loved being in the castles, but also enjoyed the B&B’s and hotels.

We fell in love immediately with all that Vacations has to offer: the misty mountains, green valleys, beautiful ocean, amazing food, quaint villages, vibrant cities, pubs and music and last but not least, wonderful people.

The trip was 10/10, all that we’d hoped for and more

Thank you so much again for all your patient assistance along the way.

Keep up the great work at Exploring Vacations!

Take care,

Elizabeth & Michael

Vacations was just stunning!!

Vacations was just stunning!! Many thanks to Exploring Vacations for making the trip a success! The accommodations were lovely all around.. very clean, neat, and inviting with friendly, helpful hosts.

It is difficult to select my favorite experience.. but it’s a tie between driving the Ring of Kerry and visiting St. Kevin’s in Glendalough.

We ended up using the great driving map provided by Exploring Vacations more than the GPS.

Overall an excellent experience!!

Warm Regards,
Melanie Weaver

Self drive tour with all B&B’s was wonderful

I just wanted to thank you for all you did to set up our Exploring Vacations Trip. The self drive tour with all B&B’s (8 Sept – 22 Sept) was wonderful. We met so many great people and felt welcome just about everywhere we went. Both guests and hosts gave insightful commentary on local things to explore and we were guided more than once to some great restaurants and pubs for dinner in the evenings as well as to some “off the beaten path” places to visit.

I had the best time we have ever had on a vacation.
All of the other accommodations were each unique and special.

All in all we had a really wonderful time. Thank you for all your effort in making this happen for us.

The accommodations were all exceptional

I’m sorry it has taken me this long to contact you but I wanted to express how wonderful my trip was to Vacations. The accommodations were all exceptional. In particular my stay at Youghal at the Aherne Seafood and Townhouse (which you recommended as a destination) and, of course, in Wicklow at the estate along the Irish Sea. Both were incredibly unique spots. The food and accommodations at Aherne are truly outstanding! Thanks for all of your help and guidance on putting my trip together. It was a marvelous success and I’ve told many people about it. In fact, I was doing a travel blog during the entire trip. Many people are excited about coming and for others it brought back memories of having been here before.

All the best,


Everything you arranged for us was perfect

That was the most amazing trip we’ve ever been on.Everything you arranged for us was perfect so both my husband I want to thank you.

The day we drove around the Ring of Kerry was picture perfect.We had to decide whether to drive Dingle or go to the Cliffs of Moher, and Moher won out.They were breath taking and impossible to photograph and do them justice.

We’ve been raving about you to all of our friends and family so you may get a few more calls from Ontario.What a holiday,
Thank you both again

AWESOME Adventure in Vacations!

I just wanted to let you know how great of an adventure our group had in Vacations!

Everyone we came in contact with were super friendly. We made quite a bit of friends in Clifden, and we doubt they’ll ever forget us!

I have recommended your travel agency to many friends & family here in the States! Without your help in planning our places of stay, we would never have thought to see all the places we did!

Again, thank you for aiding in our AWESOME Adventure in Vacations! We had a blast!

Our driver was absolutely incredible !

We had a marvelous trip !! Our driver was absolutely incredible ! He was a super star- he worked with us and helped us know what we could do and made suggestions based on what we were talking with him about wanting to see – we saw FAR more than we ever thought we would based on his hard work and knowledge!!!

Our hotels were excellent and offered excellent food and service.

Our driver took GREAT care of my father who is 84 and my mother in law who is 74. He made sure they were included and saw as much as they could with out feeling like they were holding the trip experience back at all!!

We came away from our vacation with awesome memories of the land of our heritage with our family together! — which is everything we hoped for.
Thank you for assistance and patience!

John Walling

absolutely marvelous vacation

Thank you” for an absolutely marvelous vacation, and also to say how much we appreciated our driver, He went out of his way over and over again to be sure out trip was as memorable as possible, and by the end of our holiday, we viewed him not just as a driver, but as a dear friend. Our travels would not have been as good without him. We will always recommend your company.

Wanted to add an additional comment regarding our hotels. Each one was absolutely amazing and even better than expected.
Once again, thank you for all your hard work in putting all of our trip together. Each one on the trip applaud a job well done!

Not hesitate to recommend Exploring Vacations

Well, my traveling companions and I are back in Ottawa as of last night, Wednesday, Sep. 26th. WHAT A TRIP!!!
My traveling companions join me in expressing our sincere thanks for everything you have done for us! Truly remarkable!

Looking up your site on Google and trusting that you would set up our itinerary to accommodate us was one thing, but to set up our B&B so close and handy to the many wonderful places we saw and many things we did, was just……..FANTASTIC!

All four of us were taken by the beauty of your country, taken by the charm of the Irish and amazed by the scenery, the greenery and the pride
of the Irish.

THANK YOU!! I for one, will not hesitate to recommend Exploring Vacations to family and friends…

True Irish Experience!
