Coach tours that originate in Shannon

I am traveling with a companion who has difficulty walking. I am attending a conference in Dingle but would like to tour Ireland afterward. I believe my best option is to fly in and out of Shannon. Does anyone know of a coach tour that originates in Shannon? I can only find ones that start in Dublin. Thanks

Barratt Tours operate out of Limerick, which is only 15 miles from Shannon

They are a very reliable company.

There are many local tours from Galway, Limerick and Killarney all these are well served by public transport. No need to be tied to tour schedules when you can do the same places at your own pace on your own. Shannon has an Airport a couple of industrial estates and a town which is a long way from tourist ideal nice as it is.

Although this option would mean starting in Dublin, you might look at Rail Tours Ireland; avoiding taking the one-day options, as they are extremely long days:

Might be a bit more comfortable for your traveling companion with mobility challenges.

Ginny, unfortunately, Michael Meere would not suit your needs.

He runs a coach hire company for groups and does not run tours as such.

If a group requests a tour, he will bring them where they want to go but he does not do organised tours for individuals.

I think that Bean A's suggestion of Barratt tours from Limerick is probably your best bet.

Thanks for posting that link Tony. I didn't realise they were up and running.

I haven't heard anything much about them, although I heard they were setting up alright.
