The tour was excellent. Our guide was very professional, informative, and friendly. We got everywhere that we needed to be and saw some amazing sights. I'd do it again in a heartbeat.
Great organized tour. I loved how everything was taken care of and I didn't have to worry about a thing! Also, I enjoyed the amount of free time offered in every stop and evenings.

Great trip for someone traveling solo and not wanting to do all the driving myself. Well organized. Good traveling and hotel accomodations. You can choose to take these as single day-trips from Dublin or combine them in a multi-day trip which I would recommend as it gives you a chance to spend more time in the smaller towns outside the crowds of Dublin.
Wonderful tour. Meeting at the train station was easy and the train rides were comfortable. The guides were great and the information they provided about each location was nice. Blarney Castle, Corke, and Cobh were very interesting and beautiful. The time spent at each location was appropriate and the food at lunch was amazing. Would recommend this to anyone who is visiting Ireland/Dublin, And make sure you kiss the Blarney stone.
Awesome time and well worth the price and the day spent on the train, at the Castle, plus the trip to Cork. Our guide was just plain wonderfull ! She kept us in stitches the whole time and also pointed so much out on the bus ride as well as on the train. When I come back to Dublin, I will not hesitate to book with you guys !!
Our guide was informative and helpful. We learned lots about Ireland's past as well as visiting Blarney Castle (with enough time to kiss the Blarney Stone) and Cobh.
The guides were easily identified at Heuston Station. The day was well organised and we were able to see everything without being rushed.
Overall, it was a great rail trip if you have a day to spare. there was even free wifii in the train to help you kill time.Kissing the blarney stone made the day but beware, there is a long queue. The visit to Cobh town was very informative and also, if you are a fan of titanic, you would be able to get some info on it since this was the last port she departed.
Took this trip with my wife as it was a last min planned trip for me. It was a great trip with a wonderful history of Cork and the town Cobh. Best experience will be the kissing of the blarney stone.
Great tour!!! Our guides, exspecially Dave, were excellent. The only downside was the B and B in Killarney . We were able to change our accomodation for a room in a lovely hotel, no problem. Overall, we just loved this tour, we really had such a good time.
Excellent trip. We had a wonderful time. Our rail guide was particularly informative and attentive. I loved travelling by rail. Highly recommended. Very happy to recommend Viator travel to others.

Doing what: Ring of Kerry Rail Trip from Dublin
We were disappointed with this tour. A VERY VERY LONG DAY. We had 8 hrs on train (total round trip) that became boring...and then when we hooked up with the coach...the coach driver had us hopping off and on coach for what we thought were insignificant touristy stops. It was like you felt trapped with nowhere to go. The meal was good at the Pub...friendly service. If we had known about the quick stops and constantly unloading and reloading, we would not have taken this tour. ...well, it just wasn’t worth 8 hours of train ride. Our train guide, Jerry, was a very nice guy and we had good companions on the train ride. But at the Heuston station at 6:45 a.m. and not back until 9:00 p.m...well, it made for a very very
L O N G day without a sense of accomplishment. We felt purchasers should have had specific itinerary to make a better
choice. It wasn’t a wasted day just a very tiring and boring day.
We really enjoyed our tour guide, Noel. He was so informative, personable, and made our tour much more fun! The tour itself is great: great breakfast on the rail; Blarney Castle is a must-see in Ireland; Cork is a must-see, also!
It was absolutely fantastic. The whole trip was wonderful. From the staff at Dublin greeting us, the staff on the train, having someone meeting us in Killarney to our bus driver Mike was the best. We were never worried about any connections or what to expect. We were very well informed. Thank you all it was top notch all the way. Hopefully we will be able to come back and take another tour with you soon. You can be guaranteed that we will recommend Viator Tours to everyone.
Great day! Very organized and we had time to spend at each stop and enjoy the area.
Train and coach connections prompt our young adult children loved wi-fi on train.
Michael, our guide/driver, was pleasant and well informed. We especially enjoyed the "sheep herding" demo. Beautiful views, timely stops.
Lunch was a disappointment, and overpriced.
