If you are going to rent a car, remember “little left, big right turns.” You’ll get a stick-shift car, unless you request an automatic. Also, pre-purchase your car insurance. You do not want to buy it at the rental car counter.
Once you arrive at the home, we will have our host contact meet you and provide you with all of the necessary information to enjoy your stay. We ask that you please provide us with an itinerary of your trip to assure we will meet you on-time.If you prefer to be picked up, we can arrange for a car hire service to get you as well. If you are going to select a car hire service, please remember that you’ll need to organize separate trips to grocery stores. All in all, driving in Ireland is not bad. Drivers are very courteous, especially in the rural areas.
We do not have maid services. If you need anything during your stay, you will have a contact person to reach out to.
