What people are saying about City of Limerick

Fantastic Trip, Beautiful Scenery, Beautiful Day, & Lots of Great Pics

We had a great driver, Paul. We departed Limerick around 7:55 & arrived in Killarney at the Outlet Center around 9:30. We walked around the town, and had coffee & used the toilets at the Outlet Center while waiting for 2 buses from Dublin & Cork to arrive (& also people from Killarney). The tour officially started at 11:00. People doing the Ring of Kerry tour departed in two buses & people doing the Dingle tour were on Paul's bus. We made several brief stops at scenic points for photos. We made 20-minute stops at Inch Beach & at the BeeHive Huts (which cost extra to see up close, but you could take photos from the road). We stopped for lunch in Dingle from 2:30-4 & then returned to Killarney to meet the other buses around 5:30 & get people back on the bus they arrived on. We got back to Limerick around 7:00 that evening. The only problem we had was after we left Inch Beach (1st stop) around 12:15, it was more than 2 hours before we had a chance to use the toilets again (in Dingle).

A tour not to be missed in Ireland! When the weather plays along, it's just fantastic. Our guide told a lot about the landscapes, people and nature and made the tour an unforgettable experience. He made a photo stop at the right places. Thank you again, we really enjoyed it!!

Superb experience! Very friendly driver… Very beautiful landscapes and all with typical Irish music in the bus, very pleasant. We had a very good day
