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.

    Phenomenal tour with the most beautiful sights along the way. John our driver made the day so very enjoyable. Very knowledgeable, pleasant and funny. Had plenty of time to stop for breaks, food and LOTS of photo opportunities. A must do.

    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

    The tour was a wonderful experience. Tour guide DJ was fun and informative. Thankful our driver Wayne who navigated some narrow roads and tight turns got us there and back safe. The Cliffs were incredible to experience and my only reason for the 4 star is that I think we needed more time to explore the park. The lunch was really good at Fitz’s Pub. We enjoyed the Barron on Galway bay but would have been better if we skipped that stop to have more time on the Cliffs.

    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.

    Was moved to tears at the beauty of God’s country. 🇮🇪 My guide Philip (sorry if it’s two “L”s!) was so fantastic. So kind and giving of his knowledge, wisdom, experiences and soul.

    We booked a 3 day private tour thru Munsterbus tours and it was fabulous. I worked out our daily schedule with Linda. She helped reign me in when I was trying to add too much. We had just the right balance of seeing areas & sites. And the fact that we had a driver helped us not be stressed with figuring out how to drive in Ireland! Our driver Tony was wonderful and a wealth of knowledge. Would highly recommend this company.

    Approx 5 mins after we departed from Cork, our driver / guide told the group that talking on the bus wasn’t welcomed while he carried on with his story even though no one was misbehaving or talking loudly at the time to disrupt the driver’s duties.
    Following that we heard the list of other things that were not allowed on the bus incl. eating & drinking which definitely wasn’t a good start at all.
    We were under strong impression that we’re supposed to be there for our driver, not the other way around, which was frankly awkward to say the least.
    The original order of our tour itinerary changed soon after that which didn’t seem to be a huge problem at the time (based on the condition that we’re going to visit all places as previously mentioned).
    Our driver kept talking non stop, as much as he was knowledgeable with many details thrown in here & there, there were no breaks for the group to simply relax & enjoy the landscapes whatsoever while we progressed throughout the day (literally 30 mins of peaceful ride in over 6 hours spent on the bus) - the right balance is necessary on this kind of tour and the driver should know that better than anyone else.
    In Killarney which was our 1st stop, we were only told there was an hour break which no particular time of departure (usually mentioned as a reminder). We watched the time while leaving the bus and upon return it took us slightly longer to find the right parking place (where our bus was parked), hence we arrived 1 min late (literally ONE minute!), to our massive surprise the bus was already on the move with door closed as we rushed to approach it!
    We’d be left behind 100% if we arrived a few seconds later, guaranteed.
    Quite shocking really given that no specific time was announced for our departure and the driver wouldn’t even count the people inside the bus against the list which is a standard procedure. There was only around 20 people in our group altogether making it an easy task altogether.
    What happened 1,5 hr later only confirmed our initial concerns - once we left another site on our route, the group noticed that 1 person was missing and warned the driver to return & pick them up.
    He obviously did so but that (paired with unnecessary photo breaks in places fully covered in fog) caused a delay. As a result, towards the end of our trip we skipped the entire part with multiple spots (Coomakista, Moll’s Gap Pass & Ladies View Lookout) which seemed rather interesting...
    No mention of that or any sort of apology from the driver, instead he made an unscheduled stop in Kenmare which wasn’t part of the programme.
    Bizarre and completely illogical string of events (let alone the actions made by the driver on the way) given the circumstances.
    Does anyone monitor the actual programme or what is promised to the clients?
    Personally, I would not recommend this particular tour for future visitors unless things change for the better and there’s accountability on the organisers side on how these tours are conducted.

    We hired Munsterbus Tours for the Cliffs of Moher but also to bring us to/from Galway where we stayed overnight. We ended up not renting a car at all while in Ireland for 9 days. We had a great private tour of the Cliffs of Moher with our guide/driver Tony. He was funny, personable and accommodating; he graciously scooped up our son at UCC after picking us up promptly at our hotel. He brought us to the Cliffs via a private farm where the crowds were less but perfect access to the cliff walk. Breathtaking! From there, Tony drove us via scenic routes to the Burren, stopping for an amazing view of the Atlantic from these windy, rocky cliffs. Quite exhilarating. Tony shared with us his comprehensive knowledge of the areas we traveled through, getting us safely & comfortably to Galway then back to Cork the next afternoon. Highly recommend, both as tour guide & as driving service.

    We loved having a Private Tour for the day! We were able to spend all the time we wanted at each site without feeling rushed or crowded! Four of us share a Mercedes Van in full comfort while the drivere shared wonderful history and lore about these three castles! We saw Rock of Cashel and the neighboring abbey, Blarney Castle (kissed the stone, but it's a long wait - took over an hour in line), and then Cahir. Pick-u was at our hotel and drop off was in Temple Bar at our request. I can't imagine a better day! Well worth the cost!!!

    We did the half day tour starting at Dingle. Picked up at Heatons excellent guest house, drove the headlands in driving rain and wind, but still a fantastic trip. Tour of beehive huts, famed beaches, and Oratory. Spring would be grand with LOTS of fuschias.

    The bus is showing the many interesting spots while the driver/tourguide gives some extra infrmation about the sights. t was just over one hour long and had plenty of pick up points. Cork seems to be a good place to live with several realy old spots. 14 different bridges and a few very special mansions.
