Well we knew it was going to continue to improve but talk of Dollar to Euro parity in the near future seems to be a reality now as some of the financial experts are predicting September. The rate right now is every bit as good as it was back in 2010 and the value for US clients coming to Ireland. So many new and returning clients of ours have been booking since Thanksgiving because the rate was so good then but when they arrived recently it was even better still! And that trend is not only set to continue for the rest of 2015 it looks like it’s only going to improve.
So today we are looking at the best Ireland’s Shannon Region has to offer so you can really ‘go to town’ on it and make the most of your trip here.
We always say the friendliest airport in Ireland is Shannon. Nestled in the Mid-West of Ireland just outside Limerick City, Shannon is easy and relaxed. Also its close to two of Ireland’s most distinguished Castle Hotels, just a few minutes along the freeway is Dromoland Castle, a 5 star Castle Hotel experience that to our mind boasts the best real Irish hospitality you are likely to find. The staff here stop at nothing to please you. Also, on the other side of the free way from the airport is the legendary Adare Manor, Lord Dunraven’s 1850 Chateau style neo-gothic architectural masterpiece that stands proud today for guests to enjoy. Our service always includes collection at your airport of choice and immediate transfer to your accommodation. If you and your party are in need of a full Irish breakfast to refresh and refuel yourselves with, we’ll do that first and also give you a chance to stretch your legs. Our private driver chauffeurs are the best in Ireland. Professionally qualified, as friendly as the day is long, highly presentable, and full of knowledge and information on all the sites and history of this ancient and storied land of ours, these pros are often the difference between a great Irish Tour vacation and one that stands out in the memory as a lifetime experience.

Once settled at your accommodation, whether you’re here to play golf, or enjoy a luxury tour, your right on the doorstep of all of those great attractions you’ve heard of from your friends and seen on the postcards. County Clare offers site-seeing that includes the striking Cliffs of Moher, The Burren – a magnificent and unique geological formation, Bunratty Castle, The Ailwee caves, Neolithic Dolmen graves and coastal towns like Ballyvaughan where you can soak up the atmosphere and enjoy seafood fresh from the harbour. For the discerning golfer, you can play legendary world class links courses including Lahinch and Trump International Doonbeg. Created by nature and fashioned by Greg Norman, this is links golf Atlantic style!
West of Limerick and south of Co. Clare is Co. Kerry, known to us as the Kingdom, and not without justifiable claim. Golfers can enjoy Tralee and Ballybunnion, both challenging old style links steeped in history and golfing lore. For the site seeing luxury tourist, you could spend two weeks in Kerry and still have things left on your bucket list! Many highlights revolve around Killarney town, a bustling and vibrant town with more restaurants and pubs with traditional Irish music than you could shake a stick at! The Lakes of Killarney under two opposing mountain ranges and flanked by Killarney National Park are a picture of nature. The Torc Waterfalls and Muckross House and Gardens are glorious experiences. A little further out and part of the scenic drive that is the Ring of Kerry is Dingle harbour and peninsula. The scenery here is awesome, inspirational and definitively Irish.
Limerick itself has become an attraction in its own right. With the 5 star Savoy hotel at its center, and King Johns Castle, Hunt Museum, Treaty Stone and St. Mary’s Cathedral, it is medieval treasure trove and cultural hotspot. Live traditional Irish music is available 7 nights a week and of course shoppers can browse on the pedestrianized streets.
