Ann was FABULOUS! She picked our group of nine up at the cruise terminal and took us straight to Blarney Castle. She was amazing with my 79 year old mother who was in a wheelchair offering to help push her around and get her jacket from the van when she was cold. Ann made reservations for lunch for us, showed us a fort and church. Ann was personable, fun, informative, and had a great sense of humor. The three teenagers and 22 year old with us enjoyed Ann as well. GREAT tour and WONDERFUL guide.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Christie for your kind review, you have a lovely family and I am delighted you enjoyed you day with me . Kindest Regards. Annie

Unfortunately our driver was very nervous about getting us back to our ship on time, and we were not able to do the Blarney Stone or even see the castle, in the end we had plenty of time to spare and she cut our trip one hour short to get us back to the ship one hour ahead of time than we needed to be. This trip was planned months in advance and if there was any nervousness about the timing, that should have been discussed with his prior and we would have made other arrangements
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: At Blarney Castle there was an opportunity to visit the Castle and Woolen Mills. Then a drive through the rolling hills of Cork to the fishing village of Kinsale, lunch,free time.In Cobh a visit to St Coleman's Cathedral and free time as requested. I did appreciate that your party expressed to me that they enjoyed their day and also offered their apologies too. In turn, I also apologize that I did not express my concerns over the time sooner.I will take this feedback on board for the future.Regards Annie

We enjoyed our tour with Annie O. She was very accommodating and planned the order of our touring so we could best avoid waiting in lines at Blarney castle. My only recommendation would be to install a headset microphone so that she could speak directly into it so that those in the back of the van would not lose any of her presentation. Annie was great!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Clay , I am delighted you all enjoyed your tour with me . Kind Regards. Annie .

Ann was enthusiastic and knowlegable, making our time and Blarney Castle and other sites interesting and worthwhile. She worked well with all ages - from 3 year old to grandmother. She wanted to make the tour work for our group - and tailored it that way. I would strongly recommend Ann's tour.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your review. I am very happy that you all enjoyed your tour at Blarney Castle and the surrounding site. Kind Regards. Ann

Ann customized this tour to explore the highlights of Killarney National Park in one day. The tour included Killarney Lakes, Ross Castle, Torc Waterfall, Muckross House Gardens, and the town of Killarney. It rained most of the day but Ann was able to use her knowledge of the area to accurately navigate around the rain. Amazingly, we were able to stay dry for most of the day. The tour was very well planned and I enjoyed exploring the park and the town. I highly recommend Ann as a tour guide.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Ron for your review and for taking your tour of Killarney with me. I am delighted you enjoyed the tour. We were lucky to escape from the rain, even on a rainy day Killarney is a beautiful place to visit . Kind Regards Ann

Ann O. was a wonderful guide, very personable and very attentive to all our needs. She really molded our tour to us, was always prompt when picking us up, and is an excellent driver to boot. She allowed us time alone when we needed it, and gave us guidance and sage advice when we needed that. We would do it all over again.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your kind review. I had good fun with you all on the hidden roads of Ireland. I happy that you all enjoyed your tour with me. Thanks again . Ann

Ann's tour of Cork/Cobh was thoroughly satisfying, giving just the right amount of historical information coupled with insightful glimpses into the cultural and social aspects. She was sensitive to the limitations of our age and health and accommodating in every way, even taking us to a bank.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your kind review. It was a pleasure to tour with you all. I hope you enjoyed the rest of your holiday and I hope some day you will visit Ireland again. Best wishes. Ann.

Ann was the perfect guide. She met us on time at our designated spot with comfy and spacious transportation. We were blessed with a sunny day and Ann made the most of it with her chosen itinerary (which we could modify, if requested) and commentary. The day was delightful (great suggestion for lunch in Kinsale!) and I would recommend Ann to all who are lucky enough to visit Ireland.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your kind review, it was great to tour with you. I hope I see you all soon again here in Ireland . Best wishes to you all. Ann
