Dear Jonathon - Tour Host

Thank you so much for the tour of Ireland. You really brought to life the issues, challanges, myths as well as the culture of Ireland. Words alone cannot express our thanks for all that you did for us during our time with you. We especially enjoyed the Irish Ceili and the Celtic Nights Show. It was nice of you to introduce me to Shaun and Matt before the show.


I feel that I really connected with my roots and have a whole new appreciation for everything Irish.

“Well, worth the price and time.”

Cobh  - Cruise Ship

We took this excursion while on a British Isles cruise. The train station was right next to the docks and the train ride was much more enjoyable than on a bus. The trip to Blarney was informative and highly enjoyable as well as the fishing village and the Lusitania cemetery on the way back to Cobh. Well, worth the price and time.

Highlight of our trip to Ireland was this tour and kissing the Blarney Stone! The guides were super friendly and we loved every moment. Made our day excellent! Thanks Norman and Margaret for a great day!

I have been a number of these trips and love them. This trip was one of the shorter ones, but, it was a packed day of fantastic tours, events and wonderful locations. These trips are incredibly well organised and always move smoothly. Highly recommended.

“Railtours Ireland was truly first class”
Aug 2018 by Maggie M

We had a wonderful tour to the South and West of Ireland. Peter C was great on the South and Peter McDonnell was fantastic on the West trip. Very knowledgeable and friendly with a few passable jokes thrown in by Peter M. Great hotels and very clear instructions to keep us on track. We toured for 4 days but some people joined the tours for a day or two. They kept us all organized. It was amazing. Great way to hit all the highlights and see some off the beaten path experiences...loved the sheep dog exhibition. Highly recommend Railtours Ireland.

“Can't wait to do another tour with them!!”

This tour was fabulous! Perfect amount of time at each place, fun train ride and nice bus ride to Cliffs of Moher with beautiful scenery along the way. Andy our tour guide was very funny with his stories and made the trip so much fun. Also, a shout out to Jonathan another tour guide who had a special surprise for us on the train ride back! Along with their singing and visiting with us, it was one of the highlights of our trip to Ireland. We will definitely do another tour with Railtours Ireland. Thanks guys!! ;-)

“MUCH MUCH better on rail than on any bus”
Jul 2018 by Roger O

This was our 3rd day trip in three days and in hindsight, all of our tours should have been with Railtours Ireland. The space, the convenience, the comfort and the attentive service qas MUCH MUCH better on rail than on any bus. The tour was interesting and informative. Liam is an absolute gem. Knowledgeable, witty, father-like and overall just a superb ambassador for Railway Ireland and Ireland in general. The additional service to be returned to our hotel made a great day end on a fabulous note.

Keep up the great work at Railway Ireland and please ensure to recognize and reward Liam. He was the ABSOLUTE best and now represents for us, the face of Ireland!!!

“Wow! What a way to see the country”

Blarney Castle

The tour was split between trains and buses allowing us to see the countryside and stop at interesting spots along the way. Our tour guide, Norman, was informative and entertaining while keeping us on track to see so many different sites over the three days of the tour. Blarney Castle and gardens, the ring of Kerry and Cliffs of Moher were breathtaking.

“We can't stop reminiscing and smiling”
Jul 2018 by Mr. & Mrs. Buffington

We just ended our 3 day tour with Bob, and we can't stop reminiscing and smiling. When making the reservation, I told the hostess that I wanted to make this trip very special for my bride to be, and she came through!!! She not only paired us with Bob, the most genuine, knowledgeable, energetic, funny tour guide ever, but she upgraded us the to great southern hotel in Killarney, where we experienced a river dance show among other things including exquisite dining and feeling like royalty. Bob made us feel like royalty as well, reserving seats for us, making dinner reservations for us and making sure we were taken care of at every turn. We can't express enough how magical the entire tour was because of Bob and the hostess that took our reservation. We wish you all well and thank you for helping us start our life together in such a beautiful way.
