Staying at Ashford Castle we were right next to the jetty for the lough cruise. The lough is large and boasts several wee islands, some of great historical interest. A cruise is highly recommended. The lough is beautiful and the scenery around it compliments its...More

As with most of the West of Ireland this place is absolutely stunning. Beautiful drive all along the lake with plenty of places to stop for a picture & a bite to eat

A very, very enjoyable experience! Excellent,amusing commentary from David and a remarkable stop to visit the old monastery. Cong stopped just short of being tacky (the Quiet Man was shot there)

Well this will be a long review as so much to tell. We boarded the "Isle of Innisfree" on a very gloomy day. It was not so gloomy once we set sail. There was a bar if you wanted a drink and a lovely young...More
