Found the true Ireland
Had an absolutely wonderful 2 day tour of the south just wished I’d booked the 3 day tour. It was a very informative tour with such beautiful scenery along the way. The guide Jonathan went out of his way to show me the true Irish night life and I had a ball. Fabulous tour highly recommend.

Many thanks for your review and recommendation. I am delighted to hear that you enjoyed your two day tour with us to Cork, Blarney Castle, Killarney and the Ring of Kerry. Great to hear that you enjoyed the Irish nightlife too :) - it is certainly an experience. Jonathan is a wonderful tour host and I will pass your review onto him, I am sure he will also be delighted to read it. Thanks once again, Kind Regards, Jennifer
