I am trying to figure out ways to get from Dublin to areas in southern Ireland, Cork, Kilkenny, Waterford without renting car. My family has 6 people in it and I tried contacting many of the tour companies but they are so expensive. It would cost $4,000 for 5 days and 3,000 if I don't need accommodations. Is their a less expensive way? I contacted 10 different tour guide companies and they are all similar in price. I thought of taking train to Kilkenny and getting driver their but then I will have to get train back. Seems confusing.
