5 star rating: Highly Recommended January 2015

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!!
