Ring of Kerry private tour Superb private tour with Munsterbus! this was one of four private day tours we booked on our trip! Our all day tour with Tony Murphy's Munsterbus was the best! Traveling in a van we were able to travel the smaller roads, visit sites when the large buses were not there, and comfortably carry our extra raincoats and gear. When coming to south west Ireland check with Munsterbus FIRST! you may well find that you can stay in smaller more picturesque towns and still have access to tours. A side treat is that Tony knows where the good restaurants are!

Ring of Kerry private tour Highly recommend this tour company. Tony picked us up from our hotel and we had his service ( and very comfortable Mercedes van) for the entire day. He was very informative and we were able to go where large tour buses could not....prehistoric footprints on the shore?!!! We had a great day without getting lost and were able to enjoy a pint or two or three on our stops! Booking was easy and we had no problem getting the day we needed. If you want to see the Ring in a relaxed environment with good 'Craic' this was the way to do it!

Cliffs Of Moher Private Tour...Highly Recommended Tony was awesome. He picked us up in front of our hotel in Limerick. From there, he talked of the history of where we were going and many other things. He has a great sense of humor and answered any questions we had. After we arrived at the cliffs, he gave us plenty of time to tour the cliffs and visitor center. Wherever we stopped along the way, he gave us pointers on what to see and do, i.e. lunch and an ale! Would definitely use Munster Bus Tours again the next visit to the beautiful country of Ireland.

Cliffs of Moher and more... We had an amazing day with Tony seeing the cliffs of Moher. We left from Cork city where Tony picked us up right from our hotel and explained all areas on the way to the mini cliffs, he gave us many options for lunch and breaks during the day.He entertained our family and even helped recommend some ideas for our son who had not been feeling well. We had an amazing day and enjoyed his guidance and help so much we booked an additional second day later during the week to show us some other areas rather than try and explore them on our own. Tony is entertaining and a great tour guide. Our family was thrilled to have him show us the beautiful country of Ireland. We highly recommend Tony and Munsterbus!

Whistle Stop Tour was excellent This weekend 2/5 October 2015, we stayed in Cork and our priority was to see the famous Ring of Kerry, a 112 mile scenic circuit of the South West Coast of Ireland which was quiet beautiful. We only had a day to accomplish the tour so we could not stop at all the locations along the route, but our Guide Tony picked out some great highlights. Tony was an excellent guide and provided us with a great commentary with lots of facts, information and funny anecdotes.

My father and his girlfriend brought her kids and my sister and I to ireland This tour one absolutely one of the highlights of the whole trip. Our tour guide Tony really knew all the places to go and went out of his way to make special stops for our smaller group. He was entertaining the whole trip and made this day one of the most memorable days for our whole trip. This is the tour I would suggest to everyone who will be in Ireland. Doesn't get better.

Blarney and Kinsale Shore excursion We would highly recommend Munster Bus Tours. Tony was a first rate driver and guide ie helpful, friendly, very knowledgeable, interesting, and witty. He went out of his way to ensure that we enjoyed the tour whilst we also benefited of his local knowledge which enabled him to use a short cut route to Blarney Castle so that we could visit it before the larger coaches and their very large number of passengers arrived. Tony's coach was also modern and comfortable and the overall experience left us with excellent memories of the day. I'd also recommend booking directly with Munster Bus rather than an using a 'middle' agent.

blarney stone plus tour of village cannot recomend this highly enough, tony the guide was a very friendly personality and made our visit a treat, with his wit and tales of history, would use tony again if we return, gordon/sonia

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.
