I'll start with the positive. The train was clean and on time. The tours covered lots of places of interests. The local tour that Railtours engaged in Killarney was well organised. The accommodation (I opted for B and B) was excellent. The negative part of this was that the Railtours itself seemed to be dis-organised. There was no introduction at the station so people were confused on what/where/who to do/follow. The tour guides from Railtours didn't introduce themself and let us know what the plans were. We found out by asking other tour participants. It's probably worth mentioning by the Railtour staff at the station that each has their own individual itinerary based on the type of tour that they chose. Luckily the tour participants had great sense of humour so we were just happy to tag along.

Not great. It is not an organized tour as one would think it is, with a tour guide with you at all times. You are left to your own to take trains with transfers to and from Dublin. The Dingle portion of the trip was canceled because they did not get enough people, which left us to scramble for an additional night at a hotel in Dublin at the last minute. It was just a poorly organized tour.
