Depending on what your expectations are, you may not think that this tour is 5 starts. My expectations were not too high as bus tours are usually not wonderful, but I thought this tour was great. You are on the bus quite a bit, but you see SO much of Ireland. The few train trips are great too. Nice to not be on a bus for part of the trip. Our guides were excellent and funny. One recommendation is to book early and try to get in the hotel versus the B and B. This way you are closer into the town for shopping and fun. The B and B we stayed in was ok. Small and older fixtures but the host was so sweet and made us breakfast every morning.

Our 4 day trip to the western coast was absolutely beautiful. We had outstanding guides including Brian Duggan, Eion and Jonathan Beaumont who added fun, song and historical perspective to our visit. The only drawback was our B and B accommodation in Killarney.
It was definitely inferior to the hotels where other passengers were staying, many who had booked with another carrier. Many people on our bus stayed at The International Hotel in town and they loved their accommodations. Our room should have been for 1 person and was very small. Breakfast was only served one morning. Luckily the tours were wonderful but would hope changes would be made for future travelers.

If the weather had cooperated, this tour would have been perfect. Even in the driving rain, the views were spectacular. The guides were very knowledgeable and entertaining.

Do yourself a favor and book this trip! Our only regret was that we weren and #39;t able to book a longer tour with Railtours. We had three different guides in the four days and they were all wonderful. So friendly and helpful and also knowledgeable about the history of the area. Would do it again!

A great tour to get you to some beautiful sights. We were blessed with 4 days of perfect weather and clear skies, a rarity in Ireland! The rail part of the tour is only on the first and last days with buses used for the day trips to the Ring of Kerry and Dingle Peninsula. The tour bases you in Killarney for 3 nights which removes 3-4 hours of rail travel each day if you were to stay in Dublin and do day trips, giving a much more relaxing start time of between 9:30-10am and finish by 5pm for the 2nd and 3rd days and time to explore Killarney. A number of different B and Bs are used - mine was the lovely Drimon House run by Mary who was an amazing host and very welcoming. The room was cosy with an ensuite, electric blanket and television and a separate lounge room where guests could congregate to talk about the day's adventures and watch television. Key point with this tour is to watch the start time on the first day of the tour. 7am is actually the train departure time so you need to be at Heuston Station a good 20min before that! It is actually run by Rail Tours Ireland - The Great Southern and Western Coast tour.

A true vacation! Rail Tours and Deros Tours looked out for me every step of the way. Dingle tour guide Morris was engaging and entertaining. Cliffs of Moher and Galway Bay tour guide Jonathan foresaw the groups needs with a flawless plan. There's is no way I could have coordinated a tour this encompassing on my own.

We loved the sights -- beautiful landscapes and coastal areas! We enjoyed staying in the town of Killarney for 3 nights, but the Acara B and B was very basic and not to our liking. We wish we had stayed in the International House as others did. Otherwise, a great trip that we and #39;d highly recommend!
