This tour was great! I most enjoyed time spent exploring the Cliffs of Moher (even though it was rainy and windy) and the stories our guide Terence told throughout the bus ride. It was a long day as many other reviewers mentioned so come expecting that. Consider bringing cash, a rain jacket, snacks, water your phone charger, and something to read or a game to play to pass the train commute time. You'll enjoy it!

This rail tour is a long day. We left our hotel at 615am and did not get back until 1030pm. So just know that going in. Our tour guide was well-educated, witty, and kind. The amount they fit in to this day is a lot, but my family and I absolutely loved it. Ireland is so beautiful, and actually seeing and learning more about its history was a once in a lifetime experience.

We had a great experience! Everything was very well organized and our guide Terrance was the best! He was very knowledgeable and sweet. Traveling by train was a nice way to see the countryside, the lunch spot was great, and The Cliffs of Moher are definitely a must see. Would highly recommend
