Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    This was my second tour in two days and coincidentally had the same tour guide again, Richard O'Brien. For the second day in a row I got to sit up front in the co-pilot seat and it was a blast! Richard makes what could be an otherwise boring drive down the freeway incredibly entertaining, with interesting facts about the places you are passing through, Irish history, tips and suggestions for Dublin and each stop on the tour, and a lot of fun and humor. He goes above and beyond to make sure you get the most out of every minute of the tour. Thank you Richard for making 24 hours next to you, and my time in Dublin, so fun and memorable!

    This was a great tour the top reason to visit Ireland is castle's we visited 3 they were great make sure at the blarney you go to the stone first. The guide driver I think his name was Noel was great at keeping us on time so we could get the most out of the trip.

    This tour was a lovely day steeped with history. We learned so much from David, our tour guide. It was a beautiful day to visit the castle, and the views of Cork and Blarney were amazing. Cobh was a beautiful coastal town and I could’ve stayed there for hours!

    We did the six days tour with our guide Alex. It had been amazing, we have seen many things all over Ireland and additionally learned more than we thought about history and culture. Alex had been so much fun, his stories about ireland never got boring. We started the tour as two sisters and ended it with having many friends from all over the world! We can definitely recommend this to everybody who is looking for a guided tour around ireland without stress and many great experiences! In the evenings you will have your free time to do and experience whatever you want at your own pace while throughout the day you follow the given plans of your guide.
    Thank you Alex, we had the craic!!

    The ground around castle are very pretty. There is a lot of shopping there also but a visit to the castle can take up a good part of the day Long lines to enter and longer lines if you want to kiss the blarney stone

    We took the tour to Cork with Richard O’Brien. He was an excellent guide. He unfortunately had an issue with one of the guests that kind of put a damper on the whole trip. Richard did a good job dealing with it while keeping the rest of us going forward. His knowledge and information was very helpful with our trip. Gave lots of little antidotes and placed we should visit here in Ireland.

    I waited two years to come to Ireland .it was so worth it. we saw alot and did alot. Alex was a amazing tour guide he explained the history of the places and the areas that we were in which i loved. My only suggestion is be prepared to be flexable as it says in the itinerary and wear good sturdy shoes..I saw tooo many people in slippers and slides. The cliffs of Mohor were amazing if you get the chance do the boat ride as well. Dingle was great Killarney and the National park was beautiful

    Tour Guide Brian D was fabulous. Knowledge was first rate and a great sense of humor with our group.
    Trip was very detailed, very well set up and incredibly organized.
    Great way to see Ireland without the hassle of driving on the wrong side:)

    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.

    We're reviewing the actual rail your company, not the trains or other companies used. As for Rail Tours and Brian/Norman, I found the actual company to be doing the absolute best they could under challenging employment shortages.

    When you're far from home and you book a tour like this, you want knowledgeable people to be in control and the Rail Tours guys are good at keeping things orderly and together.

    I can imagine your guides finding it tough to connect with a new batch of people constantly, but both Brian and Norman were affable and clearly cared about making sure our time in Ireland was fun.

    As for the buses and their use of other companies, you cannot expect them to have large enough groups at all times. Ireland has tiny, windy, bumpy side roads that will challenge any bus driver.

    The structured nature of times attractions certainly helps you see many things in Ireland, but I'd probably strike out on my own if I visited again to really get into the back country for hiking.

    A hop on hop off is always interesting in a city, gives you a general view of the city. Cork itself is not much, and with this bus ride you have seen everything and you can get off where you want.
