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.
Andy is the best guide ever! What a fabulous tour. I highly recommend this tour for those that have limited time in Ireland or those who just want to sit back, enjoy the views and receive some history and laughs!
This is the second time we've used Railtours Ireland for our stay in Dublin and all of our excursions in Ireland
We spent several days touring Dublin on our own using the hop on hop off bus and special offers and recommendations from Railtours Ireland. In addition we took excursions to Waterford, Connemara, Galway and Belfast. Our hotel booking were excellent, the excursions by train, coach and vans gave us a fantastic view of the diversity that is Ireland. Add to that some of the most fantastic meals we have had anywhere and our second trip ended as fantastic than the first. What a wonderful country and there is no better way to experience it then by letting Railtours Ireland help plan and book your trip.
My three friends and I took a three day tour to Cork City, Blarney, The Ring of Kerry, and The Cliffs of Moher. It was amazing! Our tour guides Bob and Brenden were the very best and their stories were amazing! It was so nice they took care of everything! Transportation, hotels, and admissions which made it so stress free and relaxing. This is a must do when visiting Ireland and you want a stress free adventure. Thanks so much we had a blast!
I absolutely loved both tours we took with Railtours. The guides were so friendly and knowledgeable about all areas we went to our were around. The trains were very comfortable with a dining car as well as a tea/ coffee trolley.
Hope to visit again and ALL our trips will be with this agency.
