Absolutely Perfect Tour! My mother and I could not have chosen a better tour company for our special trip to Ireland. We absolutely loved our driver Dave. He could not have been more attentive and helpful during our tour. He went way above and beyond to make this the most special trip. We covered so much territory and saw so many wonderful sites we were in complete awe. Ireland is an absolutely beautiful country and everyone we dealt with at Munsterbus Tours were wonderful!Also, my mom had an unexpected surgery just prior to the trip and was wearing a surgical boot. He made sure that everywhere we went, she was taken care of and safe. At the end of our first day touring, while on our own, my mom fell. I called Dave and in just a couple of minutes he was there to help me get her to our hotel, got her ice and made sure she was fine. Since she was unable to do several of the tours with me, Dave stepped up and did them with me, always with his camera in hand to catch my special moments to share with my mom. At one abbey there was a group singing Amazing Grace and he captured me quietly watching them from a corner, not knowing that it was my grandmother’s favorite song and how much that moment meant to me. We would highly recommend Munsterbus Tours and especially Dave if you are looking for an extra special experience! Thank you Dave for an extra special visit and sharing your enthusiasm and love of your country with me and my mom! We will never forget this tour!

IowaFamily2023 We just finished a 7 day private tour with Tony of Munsterbus! It was the best tour we have ever taken. We saw so many different things in southern Ireland. We loved seeing each area’s sites as well as the neat towns. We especially loved the castles, churches, Cliff of Moher, the sheep hearding demonstration with the border collies, and Kylemore Abby! We were at some of the best pubs and restaurants. We could go on and on as every day was a new experience. We made so many memories as a family. Tony took us to many places that the big tour buses could not get to. Doing this tour is definitely the best way to see Ireland. Please check them out—you won’t be disappointed.

Highly recommend!! Had the most amazing time! We had only one day to cover Cliffs of Moher. From Cork the cliffs are almost half a country away, however traveling did not feel exhausting with well timed stops in beautiful locations and a very comfortable ride. One has the opportunity to take in beautiful views of castles, stop at interesting places for food, take beautiful pictures and even do some shopping along the way as you take the time the time to bond with your family as you embark to see the beautiful cliffs.The cliffs ofcourse were beautiful and travelling with parents who are 60+ we had ample time to slowly scale the steps and even had time to enjoy a quick lunch at the cliffs. Travelling with Tony our tour guide was an absolute pleasure as he patiently accommodated for our polychronic tendencies regarding punctuality and crafted an experience suitable for the pace of our family.The views are splendid, ideal when traveling with small children and the elderly.

Perfectly intimate, not hectic, beautiful Highly recommend!!!The views were amazing, also the format of the tour is ideal for people who like to have flexibility in terms of pace of the tour and want to explore the delights of the ring of Kerry in a relatively short period of time without too much exertion. Essentially ideal when traveling with kids and the elderly. We travelled with our parents who are 60+ and this tour allowed us to enjoy time as a family while not getting tired from hectic schedules that generally accompany group tours. Tony our tour conductor was amazing as he patiently explained to us various trivia about the Irish and Ireland as we drove by the beautiful country side soaking up the beautiful views of the ring of Kerry.We stopped at beautiful locations and even had the opportunity to try delicious Irish food, do some shopping and also have the most amazing scones ever in a delightful eatery overlooking a lake.

Private trip from Cork to Galway. Great Day! We did a private tour from Cork to the Cliffs of Mohr up to Galway with Tony and our kids in their 20’s. It was a wonderful way to see the Irish countryside. He brought us to some great stops along the way. He is knowledgeable, personable and funny. Highly recommended!

Fabulous Tour It was easy working with Cathy to set up our tour and wish list. We took a 5 night 6 day tour and had Tony as our guide for the south west peninsulas. He was prompt, entertaining and attentive. Our hotels suited our request of being in towns and accessing to nightly music. We pleasantly worked around the weather and saw breath taking places that were well off the beaten path. He accommodated us with plenty of stops to enjoy and soak in the fantastic views. Looking back we would have done nothing different. Thank you Tony and Cathy for a forever memorable tour.

The best way to see the Ring of Kerry and beyond 5 stars are not enough to rate our tour with Tony as our guide and driver. We experienced the very best of not just the Ring of Kerry but also went where the big busses can’t, going through the town of Portmagee and off the beaten path for amazing views of Skellig Michael. Lots of stops, lots of history and maybe, just maybe, a tall tale or two. Tony kept us entertained, engaged and safe on the roads fit for the professional drivers, navigating the way around in a comfortable van giving the 6 of us all a window seat to amazing sites. This is truly the best way to see the Ring as we made more stops and stayed longer because we didn’t have to unload 50 people at each stop and enjoyed our interaction with Tony as if he was part of our traveling group.

Stellar private day tour from Cork to the Ring of Kerry We booked and took a private tour for 5 people from Cork with Munsterbus Tours on 9/28/2022. Tony Murphy was our driver and guide, and it was a day and money well spent. Tony was a solid driver and did a wonderful job of teaching us about the places we visited, played fun music, was accommodating of our frequent requests for bathroom breaks, and was quite lovely to talk to. He contacted me the day before the tour, and kept me up to speed as he was on his way to pick our group up. The bus could hold up to 15 people, so there was plenty of room for the 5 of us. I wholeheartedly recommend booking Munsterbus Tours if you are seeking a stress-free and really decent touring experience in Ireland. This trip was a family one with all adults, and after learning that Munsterbus does custom tours that include hotels, we'll definitely be booking them again for future trips to Ireland, which is a frequent vacation destination for us. Really worth it.

Cliffs with Vincent We did the Cliffs of Moher from Limerick with the Paddywagon tours. Our driver Vincent was funny, knowledgeable with quick wit. Would definitely recommend as we also went to the Baby Cliffs and made a quick stop at the local pub (Doolins) an incredible Irish pub with friendly staff and locals!

The Gorgeous natural setting:

Ireland is without question one of the most naturally beautiful places on Earth, green fields, large stretches of forest and stark cliffs. There are no more breathtaking surroundings to get in touch with nature than those of the nation we call home.

Everyday city life can be tedious and draining. Grey buildings and drab scenery are not what we humans are built for. Whether you’re looking to be wowed by the powerful Cliffs of Moher, the mysterious Giant’s Causeway or the tranquillity of the Ring of Kerry, the scenery of Ireland has something special to offer.

Unparalleled Culture and Hospitality:

The rich and vibrant culture of Ireland reverberates around the world. With millennia of history stretching from ancient ruins and deep mythology, in which you can lose yourself at sites like The Hill of Tara and Newgrange, to the more modern, such as Blarney castle, where you too can acquire the gift of the gab for the simple price of kissing a stone!

Traditional music sessions in one of our numerous pubs will show you the world-famous hospitality of the Irish people, known for welcoming all with open arms. Known as the ‘Land of Saints and Scholars’, there is deep literary and religious history that permeates the story of Ireland, so it’s no surprise that the many Irish literary greats, such as Yeats and Joyce drew inspiration from such surroundings.
