The tours were very good. The train trip from Dublin went very well. Catching the train in Galway was a bit chaotic, as there was very little time to spare between arriving at the station and the departure of the train. The bed and breakfast in Killarney was very nice with a wonderful breakfast. However, it was too far from the center of town. For people who don't mind the lengthy walk, it would be okay, but when you are traveling with people who can't walk that far, it makes for very long evenings. Three nights in Killarney is one night too many. For a first time visit to Ireland, this is an excellent way to see this part of the country if you don't rent a car.
