Dear Ellen,
I wanted to take a minute and let you know that my Kester Group of 8 had a wonderful time. Everything was perfect for them and they said the driver was just great. They were happy they went with the Bunratty Castle so I am glad we made the change. Thank you for all your hard work.
Sincerely, Susan
