Good way to see the countryside and points of interest north
Sep 2019 • Couples
Although this is advertised as a train tour, it’s actually a coach tour with the train taking you the main distance each way. There is no guided tour on the train.Bunratty Castle was great, lots to see.A quick stop for lunch en route to Cliffs Of Moher at a high volume pub. The Cliffs are dramatic and beautiful. Spent the night in Galway dropped off by our coach and picked up in the am for Day 2. Coach driver was a local who took us to some special stops in Connemara and the guide had much to share. Kylemore Abbey although grandiose in exterior only has a small tour area. The grounds are worth exploring and the cafe food was awesome! Note: coaches did not have restrooms or cup holders.

There are no words for its gradure and beauty. The day I went was sunny but windy and it was still a beautiful site for human eyes. I walk out to at least three of the clifs, well beyond the vistor center postings. It was amazing. Awesome views and so clean.

What a great tour. I'll be honest, I was a bit hesitant because of the price, especially with the single supplement, but I'd do this again without hesitation. You are looked after from the moment you arrive at the Heuston station until you're back. The guides are very knowledgeable and are very engaged with the tour group. We had Peter C (ponytail) and Jonathan on our 2 day trip. I left the tour feeling as though I'd made a couple of real friends.
