    Trip was as expected - great places to stay, nice bike route, weather held out for us for most of the trip. The tour guide (Wilma) was super.

    Did the Wild Atlantic Way in Ireland. The bikes, B&Bs, luggage transfers and anything else connected with the tour were exceptional. We're very lucky as weather also cooperated!

    We loved most of the trip. The views, the hotels,the people. We were a bit disappointed that we found ourselves on some very busy roads where we were riding with a lot of traffic.

    Wilma greeted us in Galway, gave us detailed instructions, reviewed the written itinerary and maps provided, and then "fitted" our bikes. Very impressed and please. Elizabeth picked us up from Clifeden and brought us back to Galway. All we can say is that she was a real treat! Very happy with accomodations; treated like royalty. Luggage always ready for us when we arrived.

    It was a very good trip. I could have ridden longer! I was cycling on my own. The contact person in Ireland was very responsive and helpful. The luggage transfer worked very well, except it was a bit difficult for the Aran Island part of the trip. There was no forewarning about that. A few times, the directions were subject to some interpretation, but I got used to that. The B&Bs were very nice, although I found Pier House in Inishmore to be rather shabby and not as clean as the others. On the next page, some of the questions are not applicable, such as transportation. However, it seems it must be filled in, so I will rate the bicycle. There was also no guide. I would also suggest that you add "very good" as an option between "good" and "excellent." That's what I would prefer to put for the "guide." She was not really a guide, but a contact person.

    Wilma was teriffic - fitting the bikes and, she gave us a ride out of Galway to avoid very busy rush hour roads. Loved Gregan's Castle and Abbyglen Castle.

The Irish food, which we had no expectations about, was glorious. Wilma gave us a very thorough review of the trip before we left AND a lift out of central Galway so we didn't have to deal with the busy traffic in Galway proper. The bikes were excellent.

    We happened to choose a very bad summer weather-wise to visit Ireland .. it poured with rain.. often blown horizontally with the wind.. so the "scenic" aspect was a bit lost as most of the countryside was covered in mist. The accomodation was excellent. All of the owners commisserated about the weather and apologised for it (!) along with taking all our wet clothes and shoes to dry off. One place sent fresh tea and biscuits to our room to warm us up.
