From beginning to end, the planning of this memorable trip and our experiences of it were over the top! My husband planned the trip with Austin who was attentive to EVERY SINGLE DETAIL.

From beginning to end, the planning of this memorable trip and our experiences of it were over the top! My husband planned the trip with Austin who was attentive to EVERY SINGLE DETAIL. As we became clearer on how we wanted to experience Ireland, Austin pivoted graciously to create just the perfect vacation experience for us. From car rental to places we stayed to helping us navigate Dublin (all during the Covid times) Austin regularly checked in on us and made sure we were happy. He even gave us a private little tour of some of the museums!!! His gracious hospitality should make Dublin proud!!
Some of the most memorable places we stayed were The Wyatt Hotel in Westport, such a beautiful town on the western coast of Ireland and in Kilkenny, at The Kilkenny Hiberian Hotel. These are locations we will return to on our next trip to Ireland, although there is so much to see and explore there. Rest assured we will contact kimkim and request Austin again. Thanks for a fabulous experience Austin!!

Hotel Reviews
Wyatt Hotel Westport
Westport

This hotel is in the center of this lovely little town. We just loved being able to walk out the door to explore. We had a large, very comfortable room and loved the fact that a large Irish breakfast was included in the price of the stay.

Authenticity & Character
This town has tons of character -- loved all of the shops and cafes
Location
The hotel is in the heart of Westport and you can walk around the town easily.
Staff
Gracious in every way.
Cleanliness & Comfort
We LOVED the fact that we could also send out laundry as we were traveling from location to location. A bonus!
Winacre Lodge Galways
Galway

Phil and her husband were the epitome of graciousness. We loved our room at their lovely B&B and all the recommendations Phil gave us for making our experience so lovely.

Authenticity & Character
This location, their B&B is their lifework. They've been running this B&B since 1992 so know Galway, it's surrounds and all that there is to offer.
Location
This location is outside of Galway but we actually loved the fact that it was quiet and not in the center of the busy busy town.
Staff
Phil and her husband made delicious custom breakfasts every morning. Being with others from around the world who were staying there was also a bonus.
Cleanliness & Comfort
Everything was comfortable and spotless!
