    Our Wild Atlantic Journey Part IX: Recap…


    Kinsale Harbour

    It was day seven and our trip had wound down to a perfect ending in Kinsale, County Cork.  From Dublin to Mayo and Galway to Cork then back again.  What a trip!  We were able to see so much but at no time did it seem rushed or hurried, just well organized. We were able to do what we set out to do in visiting new places along a route that we both thought we had exhausted. The combination chauffeur drive / self drive was a perfect way to split up the trip and the suggestions from the team at Specialized Travel Services were perfect!  We can’t wait to return.  We saw so much in a week and there is still more to explore.  It was an incredible experience all around.

    Colourful Shops of Kinsale

    Special thanks to the amazing team at Specialized Travel Services, Cronin’s Coaches and Select Hotels who made it possible to have one of the most memorable vacations we could have hoped for. Before this trip, we were planning a vacation, but we ended up with memories of a lifetime.  When Derry Cronin suggested we turn our trip into a learning experience we thought it was a great idea and a perfect opportunity to get to know our product and we were really impressed. Thank you to everyone who made this possible! Here are some highlights from the trip of a lifetime. I hope the photos do it justice. I’m lucky and privileged to be part of such a great team.  Thank you everyone!  -Brian and Ali
