          A lovely very old hotel with beautiful furnishings and wood work. The staff was friendly and helpful. It seemed everyone knew we were in good hands staying there, from the cab drivers at the Shannon airport to shop keepers we met.

          Thanks for the response. My wife and I are planning a Rick Steve’s Tour in July. This would require an overnight stay prior to the tour beginning the next morning. Do you hold some accommodations available for the tour participants since we will have accommodations the night the tour begins?
