LOVED everything about this tour, could not recommend more, such a great trip!!
We saw a lot in a limited amount of time even though the tour was all day. The best was comfortable and the coordination for the trains was well done. Others on the train using different tour agencies were without seats for the ride back to Dublin. Brandon was a great Tour guide. Recommend!
We visited on one of the stormiest days of the year so were not allowed on to the really high stones but somehow the wind and the rain, the stormy waters all added to the drama of the visit although the wind was so high at times we had to be really carefully on the stones. Hope to visit again when we come back to Ireland.
This day trip was over 12 hours! Purchased online before trip. We really enjoyed seeing more of Ireland. The train and bus were clean and a pleasant way to travel.
The sights were awesome and our guide was well informed and entertaining.
I really enjoyed the tour. It allowed me to see more of Ireland than I could have seen on my own, and our guide, Andy, was excellent. He shared lots of interesting stories and information and sang us several lovely Irish tunes which I really enjoyed. I can imagine this trip would be even better in the summer when it's light out during the train travel to and from Dublin and during the Galway stop. But the Cliffs of Moher are absolutely gorgeous, the Burren was also a really interesting stop, and overall I felt like we got to do a lot without being rushed through each item on the agenda. Highly recommend this tour!
This tour was amazing, the host Brendan was fun and very informative. Highly recommend this to anyone.
Andy was fabulous. We had a wonderful time on this tour. The cliffs were extremely windy but it's winter. There was good time to enjoy every stop. And his singing was wonderful!
The Cliffs of Moher were just beautiful even in a light rain and windy conditions ! It is a must see for those who have traveled to other countries that have high cliffs that meet the sea ! Burren was a limestone area , nothing like I have seen before. The train ride was not as much fun as I expected, as your return is in the dark and you don't get back to London until 10 pm. Viator offers a Bus tour to the same places and I would recommend that as a better choice for comfort and time, especially if you have another tour scheduled for the next morning. As always, Viator provides excellent service, comfortable transportation and excellent knowledgable tour guides ! Dolores/NY
We went on a rainy day and the visibility at the Cliffs of Moher were impossible to see. With that said though, I still had a great time on the tour. The weather was super rainy and dreary so a lot of things were closed. Our tour guide and drivers were John and John. They were whacky, hilarious, and very informative throughout the day. They did their best to fill our day with other pit stops because of the rain. This trip was a very long day so be prepared for the full 15 hours. There is a lot of nap time in between but if you can't nap on the train or bus, come well rested. We started the day at the train station. You must arrive on time because the train will definitely leave you. We first arrived at Bunratty Castle. That was interesting and brief. Most things were closed because it was very early. We ate at a cute little pub in Doolin and our next stop was the Cliffs. We stopped briefly at Burren and then spent some time in Galway. You could either eat dinner, wander, or go to the pub to listen to the local band.
The tour provided plenty of time to sight see, The guide took you from train, to bus, to location, etc. without any concern about getting lost. The pub Doolin - Fisher Street that the guide recommended was excellent and quaint. Bunratty Castle/Folk Park was a great walk with lots of interesting history. On the tour, there were several great spots that we stopped at for pixs and watching the sunset.
Amazing day trip! The only thing I wanted for was more time in Galway!
Great day - views, history and island persons very friendly at cafe - time in Galway for walks, pubs
We had great time in Ireland and thanks to Viator for great services they provided. We loved our tours as the viator staff and the tour guides were friendly and professional. We felt like we had family member with us and we were very happy and comfortable with all of our tours that we took Trains and buses. Due to this great experience with viator, we will be using them again for our next overseas trip/tour. Thanks Viator for exceptional services and affordable tours.
The cliffs were amazing along with everything else.
The tour was great. You got see to a variety of sights along the way to / from the Cliffs to break up the day.

Fantastic tour- very long but absolutely worth it. You will not be disappointed- only enriched by what you see, hear, do and feel:
Very well planned and organised. Lovely guides, it's was over all expectations.
And lots of thanks to Irish Railtours.
This was a great tour. Well worth the time. It was interesting to hear the guide's take on the troubles.

This was an amazing tour, would highly recommend. The tour guide was fantastic, he was very knowledgeable, he had great stories and was very funny.
From boarding the train at 7:00am to arriving back in Dublin around 10:30pm, everything was fantastic! My group was headed up by Andy and he was delightful. It was a lot to pack into one day, but definitely worth it. My company's in-house travel agent recommended Viator so I knew I was in safe hands. The Cliffs of Moher were the top highlight of the trip, but coming in second was standing on the beach in Doulin looking off to the cliffs as well as the Aran Islands. I would definitely book another tour in any city using Viator!
one way to ride the train. however, we could not see any scenery - we ride way early in the morning and trip back it was already dark. our guide Andy was informative and he sings. the cliffs was good - stunning.
Excellent day trip with a very knowledgable Guide who doubles as a historian! Could not have been better informed and was a real history lesson all day long.
FYI- after doing 7 tour in 8 days i would do more coach tours then rail tours. You get more time at the main attractions this way....during the rail tours you see more but are rushed along and feel unsatisfied. However this tour in particular is a toss up rail or coach so...... This was by far my favorite sightseeing tour on our trip. The cliff are beautiful and the weather cooperated. Galway was ok not what we expected ....basically we went in a bar there ate dinner and got ready to catch the rail back to Dublin. Guides were funny and broke out Irish whisky on the trip home...would have loved to party with them but we had another 15 hour tour the next day. Still the tour gets 5 stars for the cliffs alone!!!
