What people are saying about City of Limerick
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).
The castle looks absolutely spooktacular at night! The cawing of the crows added creepiness. We were greeted with honey mead which was delicious and we were all treated like lords and ladies by our lovely hosts and entertainers. The castle is not drafty at all so you might want to carry a fan as it did get stuffy at the banquet. The food seemed authentic and delicious and everything was served by the entertainers. The portions were just right! The communal seating arrangements was really cool because we got to meet other travellers. The music was entertaining and the live entertainment was great! After the banquet we went to a pub down the road called Durty Nelly’s where we got to meet some of the musicians and singers! It was a really cool end to an awesome night!
Our driver John was very nice and funny and made the 1,5 hr long ride to the cliffs very entertaining. I think 1, 5 hrs at the cliffs is enough time. I think the journey could go to a different pub for lunch (I didn't eat but it looked canteen-like) and also the description should be changed because we were back earlier than 5 pm. (I know that the driver is in no position to chanhe that. Thanks, John, you were great. :D)
It was a good tour. I would have liked even more time at the cliffs. Perhaps less at the restaurant! It was a surprise at the end of the tour to hear that we could not get off where we got on in the morning and that we would have to travel into the city. Some law is to blame for that but makes no sense to me. It added about another hour and a half to the excursion.
Maybe it's better to let people bring themselves a lunch to eat it on their ways. The lunch took an hour and a half which press pretty much, in comparison to the 15 min stay at the burden, 30 min at burraty and 1.5 hours at moher.
