Kevin is the best tour guide ever. Very knowledgeable. Was with us the whole way through. And the coach bus was the perfect size. I liked how our group was small so we could get to know each other better. And of course, even in a bit of rainy weather, the Cliffs of Moher are stunning, a reflection of God's great works!
This was a day well spent, everyone in our family of five (including three older "kids" ages 21, 19 and 16). We really did a lot in one day. Everything went like clockwork. Our guide was knowledgeable and agreeable and didn't talk nonstop; he let us rest our brains from time to time! The rail coach and the train are both quite comfortable. The cliffs and the village gave everyone a chance to really get out and stretch our legs. We had a brief stop after sundown in Galway where we were able to grab dinner. Food is very limited on train so recommend grabbing items to go in rail stations (there are many choices) for breakfast and late night snack. You can leave items on the bus during the day while touring which is nice. We stopped to tour a couple of old ruins as well as the village of Bunratty and the Cliffs of Moher and the pub stop for lunch. It really was a great day!
Jonathan our tour guide was Excellent!
Gave us a lot of history and personalized care and travel tips.
It was very easy to find the train station and guides in their bight yellow jackets.
This is a long day trip - but well worth it!!
It was a great day but a very long day. The train ride was comfortable. The food and drink cart comes to you and you can order hot sandwiches. The bus ride up to northern coast to the Giant's Causeway was absolutely stunning. The rope bridge was fun to cross but it is a long walk to get to it and then back to the bus. Lunch at Bushmills was fine. Nothing special. The Giant's Causway was really cool. It is a little bit of a walk to get down to the ocean. There is a bus for a small fee. The stones are very hard to walk on. They are extremely slippery. You really have to take your time and be careful. We had good weather and could see Scotland. It was a nice time to visit (the end of November) as it wasn't crowded.
This tour was AMAZING! The price is very, very reasonable for what you get. Brendan was our tour guide and he was FULL of information and lots of laughs. "Farmer John" was our bus driver, and he was a pleasure to have with us as well. The cliffs are breathtaking as well as the Burren. Brendan was constantly pointing things out to share with us along the journey and he offered plenty of stops for photos. The trip may be all day, but its more than worth it. BOOK THIS TOUR! You won't regret it.
I recommend this tour for anyone that wants to see the Ireland countryside with some awesome stops on the side. The tour guide Brandon was funny and very informative.
Great day trip! We saw so much for one day- wonderful value. The train made the travel from Dublin quick and comfortable. Seeing the castle and the folk village was extremely interesting. The cliffs are absolutely amazing. Photos don't do them justice. Our guide was superb. He was very knowledgeable and narrated the whole experience while on the bus portion of the trip. The details he knew about everything was impressive. He could answer any question anyone asked. In addition, he couldn't have been friendlier or more helpful. We also liked talking to the other people on the tour. This tour is a must!
It was absolutely amazing. This trip was my dream because stone walls, rolling grasslands, natural beaches and cliffs always make me so happy.
Great tour castle very impressive with informative guide! Tour guide on bus also excellent
Doing what: Dublin Bay and Malahide Castle Half-Day Tour
Railroad tours provide excellent service from their tour guides to the transportation they use. Using the train for transportation for the bulk of the trip makes it more relaxing then the bus. Their tour provide enough time in each of their stops. The tour guide, Paddy, was well rounded in each of the stops and in Irish history. I could say this was the best tour I have taken in my life.
Amazing tour and Eion our driver guide was FANTASTIC! He was funny, informative and personable. I would recommend this day trip out of Dublin to anyone visiting. Because it had been pouring most of the early part of the day, we only had 5 people with a bus and guide to ourselves, it made for a great tour. And, the afternoon weather cleared making for the most awe-inspiring coastal views.
Doing what: Dublin Bay and Malahide Castle Half-Day Tour
We visited Dublin in September 2014 and made a point to take this tour. It is long, but worth it. There are so many sights covered and it is a long trip, so be warned. The best part of the trip for me was the Rope Bridge. Although I was terrified, it was worth the hike across, as you can get some really nice pictures.
I highly recommend taking this tour over some of the other coach only tours- as the scenery on the train was incredible!
Our tour guide, Norman, was everything I hoped for. He is filled with so much information. Kept us entertained the entire day. Great tour. Great pics from the the cliffs.
The cliffs are really impressive and the Bunratty castle is really interesting - we were welcomed by people dressed in medieval clothes and we were even able to wander through the village and see a woman cooking inside one of the little houses pretty much as if we were living in that time.
Guide ( Jonathan) was informative and friendly. Tour was great and stops were what we wanted to see in
Ireland. Would recommend this tour! Combination of train and bus was good.
