Read more about her vacation below:



What made you want to travel to Ireland?:
“Ireland has always been on our top 10 list of places we wanted to travel to since we were married 10 years ago.”

Where were the top 3 places to visit on your wish list? If you made it to them, what did you think?:
1. Dublin
2. Belfast
3. Giant’s Causeway
“Each location was beautiful and unique in its own way. The weather was perfect! We enjoyed daytime tours and nighttime meals and pubs!”

Tough question alert! What was the best part about your vacation?:

“The beautiful landscapes!”

What made you want to travel with Tenon Tours?

“We had traveled to Spain with Tenon several years ago, and that trip did not disappoint! We were sure we would have nothing to worry about if we went with Tenon again!”

How was your experience with your Personal Sales Representative(s)?:

“Excellent! Dominique and Katie answered all of our questions promptly and also satisfied every request! Great customer service!”

Do you have any advice to offer up about the weather?:
“We were really blessed to have great weather! It snowed a little in Dublin the day after St. Patty’s Day which was pretty rare from what we heard! However, we were over prepared for cold weather and ended up with very mild weather! I’d say depending on when you go, check the current weather online prior to departure and just dress in layers!”

Were you able to meet any friends along your journey?:

“We met plenty of friendly new people….in EVERY pub we went!”

What are your favorite souvenirs you brought home?:

“I loved our Irish chocolate from the little chocolate shop we stopped at on the way to the Cliffs of Moher!”

Were there any unplanned parts of your trip that wound up turning into one of your favorite travel stories?:

“We found Town Comber! My husband’s last name is Comber so we had to veer off to find it of course! We read up on some history and took great pictures of the entire town to show family!”

How did you celebrate your anniversary?:
“All the details prepared by Tenon Tours at our stay at Lough Eske Castle were wonderful!”

What was your favorite romantic activity that you did while traveling?:
“We watched the sunset during our anniversary photo shoot at the Cliffs of Moher on a gorgeous sunny day!”

What tips do you have for others planning a self-drive tour?:

“Decide what your must see places are and get there first, it’s easy to get sidetracked with so much to explore in Ireland!”

How did you go about planning your itinerary, picking sights, arranging them and figuring out how long to stay?:

“Have to say, we just narrowed it down with Dominque’s help. We basically mentioned a few must see places for us and she recommended the rest!”

Is there anything else you wish to mention about your vacation?:
“We LOVED our parade seats! We were in the front row and got to experience the parade up close and personal! We even made it on Irish TV!!!”


Karla, thank you so much for sharing your experiences with us! WE certainly hope to assist you again in the future šŸ™‚
