Very informative, beautifully landscaped, very well organized.

Of course, the train ride with changes takes 3 hours for one tour, but it was worth it. In Killarny you will be guided by the train to the waiting bus. There it continues with breaks on the Ring of Kerry. The escort was guaranteed from the Heuston Station to the return home to Heuston Station. Everywhere the company had English-speaking staff so that you couldn't get out of the way wrong or get lost. Great recommendation ... of course this excursion lasts 14 hours.

In general the tour was lovely. The sights were great, we had many photo stops and not too many toilet stops (like the other review mentioned). We stopped in Waterville to have lunch and saw many great sights (amazing coast line, national park, even saw Michael Skellig from the distance). We were the only ones traveling from Dublin to Killarney, where the bus tour started (with other peopl). However, we were accompanied by an old Irish man whose only job was to get us to the bus and back to Dublin. Although he was very nice, it was not really necessary for us and might have cut back on costs. The other negative aspect was that the bus driver (who was also really nice and funny) was sometimes just talking too much and could maybe leave out a few stories from time to time so we could simply enjoy the views. Also, the price was rather high for a 1-day trip, but I guess this is because we had to take the train. Otherwise it is hard to get to these places.
