"We normally prefer the independence of planning our own trips but made an exception in Ireland due to our concern about driving on the left side and also time constraints. Booking with Railtours turned out to be a great decision. "
"We took this trip the day after St. Patrick's day with our three kids (ages 3, 7 and 10). We found Railtours to be super organized, efficient with very friendly staff. Paddy met us at the station and we got to spend the day with Marie who was very knowledgeable and friendly. "
"This was a fantastic tour! We found Railtours to be organized, timely, friendly and professional. Our tour guide, John B. was wonderful: knowledgeable, brimming with stories and historical facts, and so friendly that we felt as if we made a friend."
"I have always wanted to go to Ireland, and for our 25th Wedding Anniversary my husband made this dream come true for me. Railtours of Ireland took all the worry out of first time travels to Ireland. Our tour guide, Brian Kennedy, treated us as warmly as member of his family."
