The tour guides took us all in hand from the moment we met them at the train station for the beginning of our journey, to the end when we returned to the train station 3 days later. We happened to have relatively great weather for January, wonderful others sharing the experience, and we stayed at a wonderful Hotel in Galway, the International Hotel. Getting up the stairs to get to the Blarney Stone was a bit of a challenge for these old knees, but it got done and was well worth it. The grounds around the Blarney Castle are exquisite. Don't miss the wonderful stores there too! As far as the Ring of Kerry, the walk to the waterfall/rain forest area was not long, but I plan to go back to spend more time hiking to see the volcano rim that you can reach with a longer hike. We simply didn't have enough time to do that. Highly recommend this trip, as a visitor you don't have to worry about a thing.
In October 2013, my husband and I took this tour with my parents as part of a larger trip in Europe. This tour was the highlight of our trip and we would all take the tour again in a heartbeat. John, our guide, was knowledgeable, friendly, organized, and helpful. He got to know each person on the tour and made everyone feel welcome. The tour is a great way to see the best of what Ireland has to offer in a limited amount of time. I feel it was a great value. As a tip--punctuality on the bus is rewarded.
Enjoyed our tour, times spent in each area was just right. Our B and B was great and located close to town, which allowed us to walk to get dinner.
RailTours was great. David Gallagher was the best guide. Very informative.
Good combination of rail and coach.
Accommodations were wonderful.
We found the tours excellent. Good friendly staff. Informative tours and hospitable accommodation
Would recommend it to anyone.
Very well done and the tour guide was delightful and informative! Would highly recommend this tour.
My boyfriend and I took a three day rail tour from September 2-4 in Ireland, run by Railtours Ireland. Brian was our tour guide during our tour - not only did he give us great information, he brought us great sunshine during our trip. Spectacular weather, people and guide - this rail tour was top notch.
Highly recommended. Cannot thank Brian enough for his knowledge and warmth. A group of 30 - no issues with good laughs and good fun.
Kissing the Blarney Stone, seeing the King of Kerry and taking in the cliffs of Moher. This was truly a magical cliff.
Plus we got engaged!
I did the tour early September 2013. The weather was lovely and the site were beautiful. Our tour director Brian was knowledgeable, kind and entertaining. The tour itself was great we got to see and do a lot of things. If you go ask for Brian as your tour guide.
Great tour with everything there's to see and with great guides such as Bob from "railtours Ireland".
We thoroughly enjoyed our tour! Our guide was knowledgeable and entertaining. Our transportation and accommodations were great. It was an excellent way to see a lot in a limited amount of time. A great value. We would highly recommend it.
I definitely recommend this 3 day tour especially if you're short on time! Everything was wonderfully planned, we were never forgotten about, our pickups were always on time, our guides were wonderful (we especially loved Bob), the hotel they booked was gorgeous, they really take care of everything. Not only that, but for our Cliff of Moher day trip my sister and I were the only people on the tour and they didn't cancel! My only complaint is that the driver/guide on our Ring of Kerry tour seemed like he was in a bit of a rush (he was a wonderful guide, don't get me wrong; very friendly and knowledgeable. I blame half of his rushing on the other people on our tour, they also seemed like they were in a rush). I really can't say enough about how wonderful this company is. I would definitley book a trip from them again (and again)!
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.
The Best!!!! Every intense, every minute was information, humour and scenery at its best. The tour guides were so informative and humorous. Such a delight. We covered alot of territory in three days. B+B was abit out of town, but we walked it and actually worked out ok. Euguine our host was so kind and went out of his way to help us. Even drove us into town. Entire bus tour worth every penny and would recommend this tour in a heartbeat.
