I am planning a group (10 - 15 people) tour to Western Ireland in the middle of September 2013. We would like to do a self-guided week long bicycling tour of the Connemara and/or Burren area followed by a week long canal boat tour. I am reading a lot of web sites but would appreciate some recommendations from someone who has done similar tours and can suggest which tour operators might be a good fit for us. We are a group that has travelled a lot, are reasonably fit with at least moderate level bicycling and boating skills and are looking for good value. Goal would keep the costs under $1000 per week.
