    The tour guide and driver were both excellent. The value for the money was also a pleasant surprise. There would be no way to see so much on a self driving tour. This was our first bus tour but won’t be the last.

    Really liked the tour! Wear comfy non slip shoes due to lots of walking and uneven pavement at times. Irish people were very helpful and friendly. You get to see lots of sights in a full day of touring.

Frequently Asked Questions

    • How much time is spent on the bus each day?

      Passengers will spend 3-5 hours on the bus each day, depending on the distance between cities and stops.

    • When and where does the tour end?

      This tour concludes after breakfast at 10 am at the Red Cow Moran Hotel in Dublin (The hotel is subject to change until your booking is finalised). Don’t forget to swap details with your fellow travellers before your onward journey home!

    • When and where does the tour start?

      The first day of this tour is an arrivals day so you can arrive at any time at Red Cow Moran Hotel (subject to change), however, your tour guide will be at the hotel between 2 pm and 5 pm on the first day of the tour to help you with check-in. If you arrive early, the tour operator recommends taking a walk around the city centre, and as Dublin is a relatively compact city, you can easily explore the history and culture on foot!

    • Do you arrange airport transfers?

      Expat Explore can provide private airport arrival transfers for passengers flying into Dublin airport, as well as departure transfers back to the airport on the last day of the tour for an additional cost. Please contact our Customer Support team to arrange this for you once your booking is confirmed.

    • Can you assist with booking additional accommodation?

      Unfortunately, Expat Explore can not book your pre/post accommodation for this tour but you are more than welcome to book directly with the hotel yourself.
