We have got very good value for money each time and been very happy with the hotels we stayed in. I’ve lost emailed tickets on occasion and had to cancel and each time, I’ve dealt with Geraldine via Golden Ireland’s text number and she could not have been more helpful, nothing is a problem or too much trouble, its so wonderful to deal with people like this. I have to say we love dealing with Golden Ireland and will continue to do so and I very often recommend Golden Ireland to my friends and family.”
