    Overall, it was a good trip. The driver (Paudie) was friendly, navigated well, and told excellent stories. We enjoyed hearing more about Ireland’s history based on what we saw.

The only issue was that some of the other passengers were consistently late returning to the bus at stops, making the bus arrive back in town about thirty minutes late.
