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
Pros: The booking through Viator was easy, the tour company were professional and knowledgeable, the travel from London to Dublin via rail and ferry was fun and relaxing, and the hotel in Dublin was clean and in a good location.
Cons: We expected to be traveling with other people but we were on our own; the travel time was long; once we got to the hotel we had to come up with our own itinerary on what to do in Dublin.
This is a great tour for people who only have a few days of travel, like a relaxing journey, and want to get a quick taste of Dublin. I recommend the Hop-on/Hop-off day tour in Dublin once you get there to get a overview of the city. Everyone we met in Dublin was very friendly and helpful so ask around for local adventures. We really enjoyed this tour because we were able to set our own pace and agenda while using the travel time to relax.
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
