Actually we enjoyed the interesting Best of Cork and Kerry Highlights as our guide accommodated our preferences! We had a terrific day exploring dramatic countryside and quiet villages while learning Irish history and gaining new insights into some of our own backgrounds in the States. We savored lunch of quiche and cottage pie with pints at a sidewalk café, were serenaded by street musicians while investigating local art and colorful woven goods shops for treasures to take home. It was a luxury to take our time where we wanted. The folks at MUNSTERBUS Tours know what they are doing and make lovely hosts for the homeland they love.

Absolutely loved our tour with Tony. His humor and knowledge of history and the area were wonderful. So much better than a big bus, and we didn't have to drive! Highly recommend.

We had a very great time with our guide Jim. He was warm and welcoming. He told us a lot about Ireland's history and people. Jim introduced us to very amazing and breathtaking landscapes. Thanks to this private tour, we were lucky to discover places we wouldn't discover otherwise in a very relaxed and laidback way!

We took 2 private tours with Munsterbus - Ring of Kerry and Cliffs of Moher in May 2019.
Our driver for both was Craig M. who is a wonderful person and ensured we had fantastic days! We learned so much about Ireland in just those 2 days! Craig is a wealth of information, thoughtful and attentive to things we were interested in. He is an expert , safe driver for the challenging roadways of the area. The scenery is breathtaking- an absolute must for any Ireland visit! The private tours was so worthwhile and truly were the highlight of our trip! We are thankful to have met Craig and will seek him out on our return trip!

I arranged (with Linda) for a van of 12 for a Ring of Kerry tour from the cruise pier at Cobh (Cork). Our driver was Tony Bennett (NOT the singer -- LOL). Although it was a good tour, with stops in Kenmare and Killarney, there was way too much time spent driving (at least for my tastes). I guess I expected more stops along the way. I should have asked Linda more questions.

When we arrived in Killarney (lunch time), several of us asked Tony for his recommendation for lunch. All he would say is that all the restaurants were very good. We kept trying to get him to give us his recommendation, since none of us had ever been to Killarney -- but he refused, saying that his tastes in food might be different from ours. Finally, we asked him to recommend a Fish N' Chips restaurant, and he took us to Quinlans. Several of us tried Hake for the first time (rather than the old standard of Cod); it was absolutely delicious.

Thank you so much for your fabulous comments, we really do appreciate you taking the time to review us. We are so glad you enjoyed your trip to Ireland, given the time constraints with cruise excursions we are condensing a lot into The Highlights of The Ring of Kerry tour and appreciate it involves a lot of drive time. As it is a once in a lifetime opportunity for many of our guests they are keen to maximize the time they have and take advantage on the day. Tony Bennett is as diplomatic as ever, fearing he might be showing favoritism to one establishment over another, bless him! Many thanks for your comments and best wishes from all @ Munsterbus tours.

Our day spent touring ring of Kerry was purely magical! What made it top notch was many things: the views, the small towns, the people we met... but most of all Craig the bus tour driver!! He was very informative, a top notch story teller, knew what stops were what we would like. Every stop wowed is as we learned about meaning of each area as there was a story for each one . I look forward to doing the Dingle peninsula next time I go to Ireland for my 25th anniversary!! In less than two years!! Our tour bus driver Craig is the reason I will book agsin!
Loved the tour.. it was highlight of the trip for me and my friends!!!

Our ship docked in Cobh and we took the Munsterbus Tour - Ring of Kerry Private Tour on May 3, 2019. Our driver was Jim. He was very knowledgeable and made this such an informative as well as fun trip. Jim's sense of humor was delightful. We saw so many beautiful places. There were many stops and also time for some shopping. This was one of the best excursions we have ever taken. Thank you Jim and Munsterbus Tours!

We booked this tour online with Linda at Munsterbus tours. She was friendly and thorough while helping us book. We were visiting Cobh as a stop on our British Isles cruise with Princess Cruises. I have ancestral connections in the Cork area and our family of 3 really looked forward to visiting the Ring of Kerry area.
Linda originally arranged a vehicle for the 3 of us but she suggested that we could book a slightly larger vehicle at a slightly higher cost (30 Euros more) with the hopes of attracting more participants from our cruise to share the cost. It was a great idea and we found a couple to join us. The cost per person for 5 was considerably better than the cost for 3 in the smaller vehicle.
Our driver/guide was Tonywho happens to be Linda’s lesser half 😁 Together they make a great team operating Munsterbus Tours! If Linda is the brains then Tony is the personality! He made our tour very special! He catered to our requests and added to our knowledge and appreciation of the area. We have many awesome photos as Tony found some very unique and special photo locations. He also managed to always keep us one step ahead of the rain.
The tour gave us a small taste of the beautiful area around the Ring of Kerry including Kenmare and Killarney. We have definitely fallen in love with the area and we hope to visit in the future bringing more friends and family with us. If we do we plan on enlisting Tony and Linda to help make the trip a special one!
Thank you Munsterbus Tours and Tony and Linda!

Our group (4 adults, 2 children) were looking for a shore excursion when our cruise ship docked at Cobh, Ireland. We found Munsterbus Tours and could not have been happier with the tour we booked. We were greeted by our guide/driver Tony after exiting the boat and the next 8 hours flew by. We saw the countryside. We enjoyed small towns and excellent shopping opportunities. We ate great food. We peered down on views hard to imagine as part of our Ring of Kerry adventure. And we went leprechaun hunting - but without success. I highly recommend the Munsterbus team, and Linda was an excellent point of contact for all our planning questions.
