I have always wanted to see and visit Ireland, and i was able to see many places in a short time. As a solo traveler, i was content with the time spent at certain places (and there were many along the way!), taking many photos. I can see how some may think people get rushed, but one must respect that that it is a timed tour, and sometimes people need to catch a bus/train later in the day. Unfortunately I had to spend more due to being a solo traveler. Some other tours were overlapping, some joining us later in the week, making some scenarios and itineraries confusing, but trust the process, as it works out in the end! The rooms booked for me were awesome! very spacious and comfortable. The amount of places visited with admission price waived was great, and seeing all these places while avoiding having to rent a car works for me :). I got to see Cliffs of Moher, Blarney Castle Kylemore Abbey and so many other photogenic stops! The guides were knowledgeable, good on ya, Terrance!
It got a bit hairy at the end, the bus was not going to stop at train station until others were dropped off first, and we had 15 minutes to catch a train back to Dublin. The driver did not like us speaking up, but we ended up being dropped off first, and just made our train
All in all, such a good experience if one is willing to stick to a schedule
