“Thank you for a fantastic Emerald Pullman adventure! ”

We loved the diversity of the travel and stay. We enjoyed the views and service on the train and the agility and commentary of the luxury coach. Each hotel was unique and we enjoyed all three. The sheep herding, Giant's Causeway, and hospitality of Abbeyglen Castle were favorites. But, by far, the wonderful hospitality, commentary and stories from our hosts: Jim, David, and Mervyn made our trip so memorable! We will share our experiences when we return home.

“I highly recommend this tour! ”

We did the 6 day "Best of the West Tour" and it was insanely beautiful! The stops along the way were just the right amount of time to explore, eat and relax in the Irish scenery.

“A truly wonderful and memorable time! ”

My daughter and I recently returned from our 3 day Blarney Castle, Ring of Kerry and Cliffs of Moher Tour.

I'd like to tell you what a truly wonderful and memorable time we both had! We loved how efficient and punctual it all was and every aspect of the tour. Our tour guide, Peter, was fabulous and so fun. He made the tour just so enjoyable. We hated to leave the tour at the end!

We both agreed we would love to do another tour in the future! We left for the USA feeling like we had just experienced something very special. Ireland was simply beautiful, both the people and the country.

“Exceptional hospitality”

Being from the States, my husband and I have NEVER experienced the level of hospitality that we experienced here, in Ireland. This was my very first time, traveling Internationally. At age 60,:this begins my husband and mine “decade of travel”. I would like to particularly point out the exceptional service that was provided on day 6 of our 6 day rail tour. Our host was extremely pleasant and shared so much knowledge with the group, It was impressive. He was constantly looking out for the well being of each of us on the tour. At every stop, where we left the train/bus, Jon would count our group… making sure that we were all there and accounted for. I am on the “ slower” side and John NEVER made me feel rushed. He was communicative about when our “toilet” stops were approaching. The same when it came to our chances to pick up something to eat or get a beverage.
He was equally as generous with his time. Overlooking how our meals were enjoyed, going from each car on the train to look in on the entire train ride back to Dublin. There really are not enough accolades to express what joy John contributed to our railway experience!!! It was beyond lovely, and lent itself to be one of our favorite experiences in Ireland.

“9 Days in Ireland- What a treat!”

We booked the 9 Day Tour. The train travel and coaches were comfortable and on time. The tour hosts were friendly and knowledgeable. All of the sites we stopped at met our expectations [...] Brian Duggan was our main guide and was very knowledgeable and kept us well informed. He was entertaining, had a sense of humour and did a great job managing the diverse group. When booking it was indicated it was for the independent traveller and that was the case. We had a lot of free time to do our own thing which was ideal for us.

“Fantastic day experiencing the Ring of Kerry”

My wife and I were lucky enough to embark on the Ring of Kerry tour with our tour guide John. His enthusiasm in relaying information about the sites and stories of Irish culture was infectious. The views from the tour bus were beautiful and the stops were astounding. The trip was 14 hours but it only felt like a fraction of the time due to stunning Irish countryside and the company that shared in the experience. I highly recommend this tour and can not speak highly enough of our thoughtful tour guide.
