    I have a friend who has a last request to see Ireland before she passes away from Lou Gehrig's disease and I will be coordinating the trip for her. I am not familiar with Ireland or the best places to take a wheelchair bound patient so any suggestions, ideas or contacts would be greatly appreciated. She has horses and loves the country and wants to see the non-city glitzy Ireland, perhaps stay in a castle but we would need advise on all of these things.

    Thanking you in advance, we have a few weeks to plan it and a few weeks to take the trip late October or early Nov at the latest if she is going to be able to go, so time is running out.

    Best regards, Live every day as if it's your last. Look at the sky, and see the clouds for that is where we will meet again one day. She says this to me every day.

    Hello Prissyoung,

    Most public places and visitor attractions in Ireland are now much accessible to wheelchair users than it was a few years back. In fact, you'll find that most restaurants, pubs and hotels will be well equipped to accommodate you and your friend.

    Since you've never been to Ireland, it's best to go with a tour operator that can tailor your trip. Have a look at http://www.accessibletravel.co.uk/ and http://www.undiscoveredbritain.com/
