Our guide Andy Geraghty was great. He was knowledgeable, fun and very responsive to our needs. He made sure we had a great time and we’re on time and helped out with accommodations and admissions to the sights.
"We just returned from the 3 day tour through Cork, the Ring of Kerry and the Cliffs of Moher. Our tour guide, Norman, was the best tour guide I have ever had. He even lent us Euro when all we had was US dollars so we could see Brandon's sheep herding demonstration, which was a highlight of our tour. Norman was very knowledgeable and was able to answer any and all questions. We had beautiful weather with grand views of the Irish countryside. The restaurant stops were first class with excellent food at every stop.I highly recommend this tour company and cannot wait to use them again. Our next trip will include tours of the Aran Islands and the Giants Causeway."
"Just back from a great trip to Dublin and across the south and west with Bob on the 3 day Tour. What a fantastic experience. Bob certainly knows how to keep things lively and his guests informed. My travel buddy and I had a wonderful experience, and will gladly recommend your fine service to our friends and family! - Thank you Bob for a great time!!"

My partner Stephen and I recently did a 3 day rail tour traveling to Cork, Blarney Castle, Killarney, Ring of Kerry, Cliffs of Moher and more. Our guide was Jonathan Beaumont. I can't thank you enough for assigning him to our tour. Jonathan was absolutely amazing, he went above and beyond to make our tour the wonderful time it was. Jonathan shared with us the real Ireland, his knowledge and passion made us fall in love with a Ireland too. We were really sad to leave the tour, Jonathan and Ireland and can't wait to come back soon
We traveled to Ireland last week with some friends. Our travel agent suggested a three day tour with Railtours Ireland as a great way to see Ireland and learn of the country's history. Considering our entire stay in Ireland was only seven days in length, we had concerns that we might regret spending almost half of our stay on a group tour.
As it turned out, the tour was the highlight of our trip! The reason for this was Brian Duggan, our tour guide. Brian was awesome in every possible way. He was very, very knowledgeable. He shared interesting and relevant details of the country's history spanning several hundred years, which we found not only moved the day along but also provided great insight into the formation of Ireland's present day culture. In addition to his vast knowledge of Ireland, Brian also has an extremely entertaining sense of humor. He kept the day very light with jokes and funny stories. Additionally, he went out of his way to answer questions and accommodate passenger requests.
On the last day, we informed Brian that our group would not be returning to Dublin with the rest of the tour, but would be jumping off in Galway instead as we were planning to stay at Glenlo Abbey. Brian was familiar with Glenlo Abbey and told us to be sure to plan dinner at the railcar restaurant on the property. We took Brian's advice, and when we showed up for our dinner reservation the next night we were informed by the host that Brian had called ahead and purchased a bottle of champagne for our dinner. A true first class gesture!
Thanks to Brian and Railtours Ireland for an unforgettable Ireland vacation!
3 Day tour with Andy to ring of kerry & cliffs of Moher
Just finshed the tour. Going from and returning to Heuston station,Dublin. The guide , Andy was one of the best guides I travelled with. Very informative in the right times. Very organised. Great sense of humour. Good time planning. The drivers were all good. Highly recommended.
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 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.
