'Incredible and Memorable Tour'. Richard was an excellent tour guide, his in-depth knowledge of the area was only matched by his outstanding customer service catering to our needs, including help organize something special for our anniversary. His accommodations were both very charming and comfortable making our vacation one of the best we have ever taken. Richard and Barbara went out of their way to make our trip not only enjoyable, but memorable. Highly recommend utilizing Ireland- At Your Leisure!
As a group of three friends who have travelled the world together, we finally got to have our pre Covid planned and long awaited trip to Ireland this past early October 2022. We were so fortunate to have booked private touring days with Richard Ball our guide with Ireland at your Leisure. Richard’s extensive historical and current knowledge, attention to detailand our comfort combined with his engaging personality made our trip one of the best we ever have had. Our time was short but the amount we saw, visited and learned under his services was amazing.
One of us had ancestral roots in Wexford County and he went out of his way to search down the village and add to our memories.
We would highly recommend engaging Richard’s services as a guide to anyone who wants to maximize their visit to one of the most beautiful and friendliest countries in the world..IRELAND.”
'Our tour guide, Richard, was pleasant and very knowledgeable. During the relatively long drive we learned so much from Richard about the history of Ireland and its struggle for independence as well as the challenges of modern day Ireland.'
‘Our tour guide was Richard and he was the perfect match for us. He is a sheep farmer and could answer all of our animal and farming questions and we had an endless supply of those!!His knowledge of Irish history amazed us and he presented it in an interesting and witty way. Richard was always willing to pull over for a photo stop or to allow us to hop out and take a closer look at something. We all agreed we had never laughed and learned so much with any other guide. His pride in his country was evident.’
‘The trip would have been just a trip if not for our guide
and driver, Richard. He made the tour come alive in many ways with his knowledge
of the geography, the history and his wonderful hospitality. We engaged Richard
in conversation on many topics from Irish history to Brexit. We recommend him
highly as a guide.’
Really enjoyed our
stay in this beautiful cottage. The place was perfect for our little
relaxing break away! The fire was so cosy and the house had everything
we needed for cooking some lovely meals. The communication was great and
Bairbre and Richard provided us with lots of information. We were left
some lovely fresh eggs from their hens. Would definitely recommend this
stunning cottage for a lovely relaxing break away. Thanks Bairbre and
Richard for our lovely stay!
Marianne Cottage was a wonderful getaway from Dublin for the four of use before the kids are due to go back to school after the Christmas break. The wood-burning stove really got the place lovely and warm and cosy (especially having it lit for us before our arrival). Bairbre was great in providing local information for where to go and what to do, while Richard gave us all the insights to the farming side of things. We would definitely recommend this property, and would love to return at some point.
Beautiful home, fantastic hosts, great location. Book it, you won’t be disappointed!!! Fantastic experience. Thanks for everything!
This cottage is a perfect escape from the hustle and bustle of city visiting and travelling. It’s cute and quirky with lots of little additions to help you feel at home and relax. The surrounding rural area is stunningly beautiful and you’d never know you were within walking distance of local shops and cafes. It was a perfect place to use as a base for going in Dublin and visiting local attractions.
