The Real Deal: Six nights' accommodations in your choice of B&Bs with private baths (four nights in Killarney and two in Ennis); Irish breakfast daily; a six-day manual two- or four-door compact rental car from Hertz with unlimited mileage; greens fees at Dooks Golf Club, Dingle Golf Links, Lahinch Golf Club, Lackabane, and Ring of Kerry Golf & Country Club; and hotel taxes, service charges, and government taxes from $939 per person—plus about $102 in fees.
When: Oct. 1–25, 2009; add $80 for Sept. 7–30.
The fine print: Does not include about $102 in fees—$65 in insurance and $37 in airport fees. Based on double or triple occupancy; single supplement is $240. To make reservations, contact each bed and breakfast property directly or reserve online at the Town and Country Home's Web site. Read these guidelines before you book any Real Deal.
