So just some advice if anyone can provide. I’m new to the forums and have never really had to post anything as I usually use my own travel agent well, long story short my wife and I are taking our honeymoon in Ireland come Sept-Oct of this year and we really wanted to plan something that was personal and had “our” own touches on it so here is our itinerary and if anyone could give some advice as far as places to see/visit and or advice we would be grateful!
We have no idea who we’re renting a car (car hire) from as I have seen so many mixed reviews on this site and others. I’m fully aware of the CDW/CDI and excess insurance. I was leaning on Dan Dooley but it’s tough to judge as I have heard nightmares from other forums. I do get discounts on Avis and Hertz from my company but Dooley seems to have far better rates. Any advice on this?
Our itinerary goes as such:
We Fly into Shannan on Sept 30th stay in Limerick for the night at the Absolute hotel. We will head to Killarney and will be staying at Algret House Bed & Breakfast we plan on seen the ring of Kerry, we will be staying there for 4 nights. Then we will heading to cork and staying at the Crawford house and enjoy nearby attractions such as the town of Blarney. We will head from Cork back to Limerick and spend our last two nights at the Limerick Strand Hotel where we will take in some sites in the city.
We honestly don’t have any sites really planned and just want to enjoy some free time and the freedom of enjoying Ireland. However we fear the rental car process, is it truly as bad as everyone says? As I stated before we’re thinking of Dan Dooley out of Shannan and just paying for the CDW and Exess and just hope for the best.
