Great Tour, well executed, professional just as described on your website.
I had a great time and saw many amazing sights with lots of history. Johnathan is very informative and tentative guide. He knows his land and its history. He can also sing and cites a sonnet. The trip is worth very penny and I definitely recommend it.
The combination of rail and bus was a delightful way to travel. The countryside, the castle and the cliffs were everything we hoped for. The wind and rain had it moments but sunny times gave us many perspectives of the region. We also enjoyed meeting the other folks on the tour.
A to our talented guide.
This trip was wonderful. You take a train and then a bus ride. Our guide, Brandon, explained various areas along the entire bus ride. We stopped at different places to see things and take pictures. The Cliffs of Moher were the highlight of the trip. It was very rainy, foggy and windy when we first arrived, but it cleared up and was beautiful. It's a long day of activities, but worth it.
By far, one of the best tours. It was long but you do go to the west side of the island. Plenty of time to rest on train or bus but you want to hear everything the wonderful guide tells you about the whole ride thru towns and countryside. The Cliffs of Mohrs are amazing. Don and #39;t miss this.
This tour was absolutely wonderful! Andy(tour guide) and John (bus driver) couldn and #39;t have been better! Both fun, friendly, knowledgeable and accomodating. Had plenty of time at each site. The company itself is very organized and helpful. Compared to other tours here, this was the best by far!
Jonathan B. was our tour guide. He was very knowledgable and pleasant. There is a lot to see on this tour, which is why we chose it. The Irish weather changes quickly so I recommend layers and something comfortable. The Cliffs were muddy so wear good shoes. Overall, excellent tour.
This tour was great! We got way more out of the tour than we anticipated. Tour guides were very friendly and informative. Great mix of tour and free time. However we could have spent more time at the Bunratty Castle/village area, than we had....but understand that there is only so much time to get it all in to.
Beautiful scenery! Tour guide was very knowledgeable. Really enjoyed the day!
This tour was awesome! I highly recommend it. Our tour guide - Jonathan Beaumont was terrific! Not only did he share the local history and background of various places we visited, he regaled us with poems and Irish stories. The Cliffs, local sites and villages are a good picture of Irish life.
This is a great way to get introduced to Ireland. Easy train ride across to Limerick although you do have to get up early. The guide - Brendan and driver Michael were outstanding. Brendan's commentary provided a framework of information that enhanced the visual experience of the trip. The Bunratty Castle visit was interesting. Lovely grounds. What can anyone say about the Cliffs of Moher that hasn't already been said? SPECTACULAR! The Burren? 350 million years old. It seems to go on forever. Unfortunately the return trip to Dublin had to be made by coach as there was some type of issue with the train....none the less, we made it back from Galway just about at our scheduled time.
Thank you Brendan and Michael for a wonderful experience.
Loved the tour! Our guide, Brendan, was amazing. He told stories and casually imparted facts that made the areas come alive. Our driver, Michael navigated some very challenging road conditions with ease. The tour is a very long day, but the areas you see are terrific. The Cliffs of Moher were amazing! It should, however, come with the warning not for the frail of foot as Bunratty Castle has steep and very challenging steps and the Burren is very rocky but the view is worth the tough walk. Would have liked about an hour more at Bunratty Folk Park, as it's really interesting. The pub lunch in Doolin was really good and not terribly expensive, and chocolate shop next door was well worth stopping in. Irish Rail train ride was very comfortable and a great way to start off the day.
Wonderful tour and tour guide! Were very accommodating and provided a coach to take us back from Galway to Dublin on time when it appeared the train would be delayed!
Very worthwhile. Super guide and driver...Brendon and Michael. Thank you.
From start to finish this tour was outstanding. The itinerary was awesome from Limerick to Bunratty Castle and Folk Park Castle, to the pub in Doolin, the Cliffs of Moher, The Burren and Finally the drive to Galway City along the coast. Our tour guide, Brendan, was extremely knowledgeable and lots of fun. Our drive, Jerry, was also outstanding as he negotiate the narrow roads through the countryside with ease. The Irish Rail trains were also excellent...very clean and confortable.
Nice tour but a very long day. Train ride, coach bus ride. Train ride. Of course if you are in Ireland you will go to the Cliffs of Moher and probably the Burren. If you are only in Dublin and don' t have the time to tour the rest of the country then this is good for you but if you have the time to be on that coast for more than the day, then I would suggest doing these things while in the area, not as a day trip.
Absolutely well planned up to the minute with easy transfers between points. Good pace. Good value. Beautiful scenery. Only suggestion would be that there should be about 30 minutes more at Bunrstty and 30 minutes less at Moher. We would have liked to visit more of the village area at Bunratty, but too much time was already spent on the castle itself. Guide Andy, was good and pleasant, he just gave way too many directions multiple times for U.S. and those around us.
Excellent way to see some of Ireland and #39;s
Sites for the traveler with limited time
Would omit the Castle in favor of an extra hour or two in Galway
Otherwise kudos to our guide ANDY and the bus driver
It was an amazing tour! Bob was an absolutely fabulous tour guide. Very friendly and informative! We highly recommend it! Well worth it!
