What to Expect
Your morning begins at Dublin Heuston Station, where you board a train to Limerick. Order breakfast (own expense) and enjoy the passing lush, green countryside views. On arrival in Limerick, a local guide leads a walking tour of the ancient city. Learn tidbits about its rich past, Viking heritage, and literary reputation. Next, board a northbound coach to Bunratty Castle and Folk Park. Discover Ireland’s most complete medieval castle, including historic tapestries and artworks, and then see Folk Park, which offers a glimpse of 20th-century Irish village life. It isn’t a trip to Ireland without a traditional pub lunch. Wash down classic dishes with a Guinness or cup of tea at Gus O’Connor’s Pub in Doolin (own expense). The coach then transports you to the rugged Cliffs of Moher. Your journey continues past scenic coastline of the Burren and Galway Bay. Stroll through Galway before boarding a train to Dublin, where dinner awaits (own expense).

My mom and sisters and I went on this over Christmas break and it was awesome. We had Terry as our guide and he was the absolute best. We did everything we expected to do on the tour and more. If he is able to let you see something cool and the bus is on time then he will do it.
