Tour Reviews

Reviews for Dublin, Killarney & the Ring of Kerry

Date of tour: April 2018

Really great holiday to Dublin and Cork - everyone was delighted with the whole thing, so many thanks for your help. The Dublin guide was very knowledgeable plus amusingly quirky in that Irish way! The driver Martin - now known to us as "Saint Martin" - was absolutely marvellous in all ways and a real credit to his profession. Rock of Cashel was a very good stop on the way to Cork - again great guide. The Cork guide was very good. I would certainly recommend the walking tour of Kinsale - very interesting plus really funny. Even the weather worked in our favour in that when we were inside or on the coach we had some rain but when we were outside we had the sun!

First of all, thank you to all at Tailored Travel for organising our tour to Dublin, Killarney and the Ring of Kerry so well for us. This was the first time I have organised a study tour and your help and support was invaluable. The coaches used throughout were clean, well-maintained with pleasant, helpful drivers throughout the tour. Our Dublin hotel was superb. The meal on arrival was good, so much so that many of the group ate at the hotel on subsequent nights. Breakfasts too were excellent. The hotel in Killarney being 3-star was not of the same standard, nor expected to be. Both guides were very good, and very different. The Ring of Kerry guide was very good indeed and very helpful. All in all an excellent tour. Thank you.
