!!!! Would highly recommend! Well worth the finances.
Had a wonderful day
We found this tour to be very interesting and definitely worth the money. We met Bob at the train station where he explained what we would be doing for the day. We rode a train from Dublin to Limerick, where we boarded a bus. The bus ride took us through very pretty country settings. Bob was a very knowledgeable tour guide. The stops were well timed and the sites were amazing. The Cliffs of Moher were incredible. We arrived in Galway two hours before our train departed. This gave us plenty of time to find a local pub for dinner. The day ended with a leisurely train ride back to Dublin. We highly recommend this tour. It takes you out of the city and lets you see some of the very beautiful Irish countryside.

I have been to Ireland before. The people continue to be the most hospitable and the country is beautiful and full of history.
Took 3 tours in our week stay in Dublin and this was the best. Well it should be since this was also the most expensive. Tour guide, Paddy, was great, My wife lost her return ticket from Galway to Dublin and Paddy took care of it and I can't thank him enough for it. Very well organized tour. Just show up at the train station and they'll take care of the rest.
The trip was very impressive, not only because of the breathtaking views, but also because of the friendliness and professionalism of the guides.
This tour was absolutely magical, allowing my daughters and me to experience the beautiful Irish countryside, the historical Bunratty Castle and grounds, the spectacular landscapes of the Burren, the amazing Cliffs of Moher, as well as the charm and beauty of Galway--all in one day! The brilliant sunshine followed us everywhere we went, making for a perfect day. Our tour guide, John Beaumont, is a national Irish treasure--his knowledge, wit and enthusiasm was appreciated by all. If you have one day or a week to spend in Ireland, this tour is not to be missed!
This was by far our favorite day while in Ireland. 5-star treatment...was so refreshing to just have to show up and have everything else taken care of the entire day. John was an incredible tour guide, he was extremely knowledgeable, attentive and fun! Would highly recommend to anyone wanting to see the Irish countryside and all itsbeauty.
Great day! I loved seeing the beautiful countryside of Ireland. Highly recommended!
This tour was excellent, Marie our guide was fantastic. She was knowledgeable and very helpful. The time at each stop was adequate. We took a tour from Belfast to the Causeway that did not have enough time for lunch or the tour of Bushmills.
I would take this tour again.
This was my first and most favourite tour while in Ireland. Travelling from train to bus and back was seamless. Our tour guide was very nice but lacks passion for the job. Can't comment on the bus driver as I don't really remember him saying anything. They were both very efficient though and got us everywhere on time. Bunratty Castle was our first stop and a treat and the staff there gave an entertaining tour. We stopped for lunch in Doolin; a cute, colourful town where we ad lunch before seeing the cliffs. The food at O'Connor's Pub was great! The cliffs were breathtaking. I wish we were allowed more time there as there is a lot of walking . We were blessed with a beautiful sunny, clear day. The Burren was an amazing site and such a uniquely sculptured area of limestone. Such a vast rocky area compared to the rolling green hills of what I thought all of Ireland was. I would recommend this trip to everyone.
It was A-MA-ZING!
We had one of the hottest day of the summer. The sky was clear blue, so we had the best pictures.
He guide was amazing. They offered us water all the time, which was great because of the hot weather.
The guide kept us all entertained with amusing stories throughout the journey.
We took two tours while in Ireland and both were excellent. Marie was our guide on this one (Limerick, Cliffs of Moher, Burren and Galway Bay) and she did a great job of keeping all of us on time while still being able to enjoy ourselves and see what we came to see - not an easy task and one I personally wouldn't want to take on! I wouldn't hesitate to use Viator again for future tours when I'm traveling.
This was an outstanding tour. The tour operators meet you at the train, so you are in company for the whole excursion. The driver, tour guide, and staff were attentive to the tourists needs, and were helpful. The sites were awesome with enough time at each one to walk around, take pictures, eat, and relax in the most hospitable Irish countryside.
We loved the Rail trip from Dublin to Limerich
The Bus trip was brilliant- the Tour Guide Dave just made the trip- he was informative, friendly, warm and just good fun.
Unfortunately the train from Galway to Dublin was delayed due to a mishap on the train line- we were not given sufficient reliable updates on when our re-scheduled train would depart. However Dave our Guide was so thoughtful and assisted us during our wait time.
The cliffs were beautiful and the tour guy was soooo funny....it's a must see
This was a phenomenal tour with Railtours of Ireland ... our tour guide, John, was very knowledgeable, humorous, and talkative ;) .... We enjoyed Bunratty Castle and small village ... you must try the homemade scones fresh from the ovens ... quite delectable! Although I had lost my cell phone before departing for the 15-hr tour, John was very helpful in contacting the hotel and train station for me and putting my mind at ease so that my husband and I could still enjoy this wonderful tour. If you visit Dublin, it is so important to also take some day tours around the country. Ireland's beautiful coasts and lovely countryside is must-see in our opinions. We would definitely go back and use Viator to book with Railtours again.
This tour was amazing; my favorite being the Cliffs of Moher. Our tour guide knew a lot and was approachable for information. It was amazing to see all the places and we had enough time to see the sites with each stop. It was definitely well-worth money spent on a trip!
Trip was excellent ! Booking was easy and connecting at the rail station was 'quite painless.' The outbound train was a new one and excellent! The coach and driver and guide also were quite positive. Enjoyed every minute--even the weather--it wasn't sunny, but it was clear to get a fantastic view of the Cliffs. Great Tour! Long, but a super way to see many things in a short time!
We both had a wonderful time on this tour. Noel the travel guide was excellent and had plenty to say and a lot of funny things to say and jokes. Makes trip better than normal . I actually think he kisses the Blarney Stone quite often.
Lunch as fantastic in Doolin, came out in 5 minutes and was the best fish and chips I had ever had. The Doolin town very picturesque also. Recommend to anyone.
Thanks railway tours was awesome
The tour guide was wonderful! The tour was perfect. Had a wonderful day!
