Wonderful tour of the south of Ireland. My favorite town was Killarney and I wish I could have stayed there longer. Our guide for the Ring of Kerry was terrific -- Michael was well informed, personable, and did an outstanding job of giving us a wonderful experience despite the weather. We did have bouts of rain but that did not take away from all the sights.
