This was a wonderful tour led by a fabulous guide whose name we unfortunately cannot remember. The tour ORIGINATED in Kilarney and had seats for 20 people. The bus was equipped with several amenities including usb connections and a pocket for water bottles in the back of the seat. These turned out to be important since our previous tour with ANOTHER company did not have these amenities and did not originate in Kilarney.

The tour was fantastic! The bus was very comfortable and we stopped at a number of places along the way for photographs, snacks, bathroom breaks. The scenery is some of the most beautiful in all the world.

The tour was incredibly beautiful! The guide "Batt" was super entertaining and there was a great atmosphere within the group throughout the tour. Would book it again anytime!

A nice stress-free way to see Dingle peninsula on a comfy bus. Michael provided just enough information to be interesting without overwhelming us with information.

Richard was great! Learning the history of Belfast was definitely worth the long bus ride.
