“Awesome day trips!”

I want to thank Paddy Mcardle for such a wonderful experience on our recent tours. Paddy is very knowledgeable and kind going above and beyond to accommodate everyone.
We did the Giant’s causeway tour which by itself was beautiful, we were so happy that the following day we went on another day trip to visit Cork Cobh and Blarney which offers amazing gardens, Ian and Tom were awesome driving the tour buses in such narrow roads, my hats off to these gentlemen and lastly Andrew gave us a history lesson of each area visited. I highly recommend anyone booking an Ireland trip to go with Railtours Ireland. Trains are the best way to travel!

“Fabulous experience”


I would like to thank you for giving fabulous experience to my parents of rail tourism.

My parents were on your blarney castle and cork rail tour this summer and they were super happy with the tour arrangements.

Back in India my father wrote an article in Marathi ( my mother tongue)about your tour and it was published in news paper. He got overwhelming response from readers of this news paper.

I’m sure people who read this article if at any time happen to visit Ireland they will opt your blarney tour over any other tour.

“Communication, Accommodation and Guides all excellent.”

"I did the Blarney Castle-Cork tour at the end of August. Only wish I had had more time in Ireland. Maybe some day I will get back. If I do, it will certainly be with Railtours Ireland. Communication, Accommodation and Guides all excellent."

“Loved the rail tour and Blarney and Cobh!”
Blarney Castle

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!

“Rail tours are phenomenal”

We took 2 rail tours- they are comfortable. I prefer this to the all day bus tour. These tours are long depending on which one you take. Peter and Laim were wonderful host. We were here for a week I recommend take 3 railway tours and 2 bus tours. These guys took care of us and were great. FYI the trains have power plugs and tables plus a bathroom. Free wifi. My family are big guys over 6’4”. The leg room is great.

“The best tour we have taken in any country”

The best tour we have taken in any country. Norman was the absolute best guide. We have made a friend for life with Norman. I have told all my friends to make sure they ask for him when booking a tour. I would give this tour a 10 if possible

“Blarney Castle Tour”

We actually booked our vacation with another company and were put on the day tour of Blarney Castle. It was a wonderful tour with Edmund as our guide and Teddy as our driver. We had a wonderful day and Edmund was very knowledgeable!! It was a really lovely day and we even kissed the Blarney Stone!!

Perfect weather, scenery, food, rail, and coach. Brendan, our tour guide, couldn't have been more knowledgeable, organized, helpful, and FUN! He went above and beyond to make the day a memorable and FUN experience. This adventure completely made our Ireland experience. Highly recommended--we will be back!
