The rate is definitely 5 stars. The guide who met us on Euston station was amazing. He showed and explained us everything we needed to know, found the best seats on the train. The taxi drivers in Dublin were really communicative and helpful as well. The way through Wales and Irish sea was a little bit long but it was a good experience, especially if you want to see a big ferry and like trains.
The Ashling hotel has a good location, the room is one of a great quality.
The Dublin itself is the city of a dream! Just advise you to plan what you want to visit there in advance, especially if you haven't got enough time.
It wasn't the first time when we use Viator Tours and it is a company of a great quality and we will definitely use it again in future.
Everything was OK, except the fact that we had no reserved seats on the train and it was very crowded on the way back.Reviewed by: Gheorghe P, Romania, July 2013
Well organised tour. Hotel Ashling was also very good. Train trip was a touch long and uncomfortableReviewed by: Dunk, Australia, October 2013
If people loves the train and ferry, this is a good option. Two days of that seem a bit wasteful of time out of five days. Dublin itself is a really great city. Our hotel is very well located but unfortunately a bit tired and not ready for hot summer days.Reviewed by: O Y C B, August 2013
Enjoyed for the most part. Train booking did not give assigned seats even though most seats where reserved which caused us to have to change seats as people arrived...I checked to reserve seats for return and was told that our tickets where not changeable. Hotel needs to be upgradeable, we where placed in an converted extension to the hotel over an Irish Pub on a Saturday night with no air conditioning windows open, so you can see where this is going. Elevator to floor then up and down stairs to get to the room with luggage. Not fun!Reviewed by: David G, October 2013
