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.

    We were delighted to learn that the excursion included round-trip rail transfer. This is NOT clearly stated in the description. Unfortunately, we were delayed getting tenders from our cruise ship into port due to high"ish" seas and this definitely shortened our day and abbreviated our plans. That said, it was fairly easy to find the Hop-on Hop-off staff upon arriving in Dun Laoghaire and getting the DART into Dublin. This is a good way to get around Dublin and see the city in a short amount of time.

    The coach ride was fine, but it is an extremely long day. Have to take 2 trains from Dublin to get the coach in Killarney to start the actual tour. It was a gorgeous day, and the scenery was lovely. Highlight of the tour is the sheepherding demonstration. Absolutely wonderful! Overall the tour was great, but it is very dependent upon the weather, and you have to be up for a 16-hour day. But if you are, do it!

    We had a great train journey to the Kilkenny Castle and to the Waterford crystal factory. John was an excellent guide who loved sharing his knowledge of Ireland with our group. Beautiful weather added to the views on this scenic train ride. Crystal making was shared in great detail with an up close look at all the steps. Really enjoyed!

    Got to see so many highlights on this trip! It makes for a long 2 days, but at least you can rest on the bus/train. We did find the company to be somewhat disorganized, and they passed us off to different tour companies and guides throughout. This was due to short-staffing that hasn’t gotten back up to normal levels from COVID. The guides were very knowledgeable and friendly.

    Brian our tour guide for most of our trip was the most informative, friendly and lovely gentleman. We learned so much about the country and totally enjoyed our trip. Andrea and Gerry also deserve high praise because they also were amazing.
    RIT made our trip to Ireland magical. Thank you so much. Will highly recommend this company.

    Overall it was a great trip, my mom and I loved it. Our tour guide, Paddy, was super sweet and helpful through the whole experience. The only downside was that we wanted to spend more time in certain areas and did not get to due to time constraints, but we knew that might be an issue. Also depends on who you are sharing the tour with as some of the people on our tour were not super considerate of other people nor were they kind to Paddy in the beginning. However, over time the other people on our tour were nicer. Ultimately great tour :)

    Our expectations were exceeded in terms of learning about the history, culture and geography of Ireland and the Irish people. I wish that we had kept 1 tour guide through the entire 6 days. Brian was exceptional, informative, kept us aware of what to expect and was loads of fun! Around day 3, though, we were given a different guide who was very nice, but needs microphone training! Our bus group was begging him to move the microphone further from his mouth.

    I had a great time traveling with our group and guide Brian in southern and western Ireland.

    We went to so many places, beautiful Cork and Cobh, Blarney Castle, and the Cliffs of Moher, just to name a few.

    I learned a lot about Irish history and even printed out my ancestry crest from county Tyrone. We stayed for 2 nights in a lovely hotel and had time on our own in the evenings to explore, have dinner, and listen to some traditional music.

    Our guide was funny, warm, and very knowledgable. There were lots of surprises along the way and I enjoyed every bit of it. I am grateful for my experience with Rail Tours Ireland and for Brian Dutton our guide.

    The tour was excellent. We were accompanied throughout by an experienced, knowledgeable and interesting guide (Brian). Brian looked after all details throughout the tour, keeping everyone informed and on time. The accommodations were excellent. As for the actual tour, it was great. The pace was about right and there was always something interesting to experience. Brian added great commentary and gave great suggestions about where to eat/shop.

    Thank you Brian and Railtours Ireland for showing us the beauty of Ireland.
