My husband and I have traveled to Europe over a dozen times in the last twenty years. We’ve always traveled independently doing our own research and making our own reservations. We’re very comfortable taking public transportation in Europe and have also driven rental cars.

A few years ago, we started purchasing small group or private tours for day trips and museum tours. We find them to be a great value for the personalized experience you receive. The key is doing your research ahead of time and finding the right tour company for you.

For our trip to Ireland in August 2019, I found several highly-rated companies that offered day trips in southern Ireland. We ended up selecting MunsterBus Tours and had a fantastic experience. We booked with MunsterBus Tours because of their good customer reviews and excellent customer service in planning the trip – specifically my interactions with Linda Conway. Linda and I emailed back and forth to plan our two day trips for 4 adults. She was very responsive and professional (with a nice sense of humor). She took the time to really think about the information I sent her and then responded with detailed information and personalized itinerary options for us to consider. I also emailed Linda while in Ireland for advice with something not related to our day trips and she responded immediately with very helpful suggestions. Great customer service!

We were also delighted to find the actual day trips were very enjoyable. Our driver and guide for both days was Craig. He was knowledgeable, helpful, patient and a very good driver. He did a great job balancing informing us, entertaining us (we had fun singing Irish songs) and giving us quiet time. Craig made our time in southern Ireland even more enjoyable. When we return to continue our exploration, we will definitely use MunsterBus Tours!!

We did a 7 day tour around Ireland, and had a great time with our guide, Tony. The bus was clean and comfortable , and the hotel arrangements made were fantastic - centrally located and allows you to enjoy the beauty of the city or town after a day’s tour.

We had visitors who needed visa arrangements and when We asked for the itineraries and supports needed for the tour, Munsterbus was very efficient in providing these supports and letters for us. The itineraries are well laid out and great commentaries were provided by the Driver/guide as we went along the tour

Highly recommended , whether you are a small or big group !

This is a great family owned business which we booked for our seven day tour around Ireland. Tony was a very safe driver and you how to maneuver those tight Irish roads and we always felt safe. He also knew where to do great activities and he was very accommodating with a few that we found ourselves but were out of the way. He had a great sense of humor and had a wonderful time driving around Ireland with him. Linda from the start was very punctual with her emails and knew how to put the itinerary together so everything flowed with ease. We were impressed with her tenaciousness in obtaining hotel rooms for one night which was not easy in the busy summer season. Went out of the way to call some of the hotels and confirm our rooms even though it was outside of the time with the tour. We’re always happy to support small businesses who go out of their way to present the best of Ireland to the newcomers like us and made us feel welcome. Overall we had the best time and we walked away with great memories! Slainte!

If you want to tour Ireland your way, I highly recommend Munsterbus Tours. I sent them an inquiry about doing a 7 day tour of Ireland and Linda was extremely helpful and provided me with an excellent and detailed itinerary. Unfortunately I had to cancel those plans, but I reached back out to them sort of last-minute to book a 3 day tour and Linda was prompt and detailed with the responses.

We did 3 day tours - Dingle Peninsula, Ring of Kerry, and Beara Peninsula. Their website has these tours listed as suggestions, but all tours are highly customizable. Our guide was Tony and he is very accommodating, knowledgeable, and also very funny. I had mentioned going to a sheep farm and while they were not open that day, he took us to a different location and we got to hold a baby lamb. If you want to stop and spend more time in a certain spot, you can do so as it's your tour and we never felt rushed. All the tours were excellent and in the end we were happy we decided to do a private tour.

I can't recommend Munsterbus Tours enough. If you're looking to book a private tour in Ireland, whether it's just a day tour or multiple days, definitely contact them first!

Four couples took a 7 day tour of Ireland and Northern Ireland with Munsterbus Tours. This was actually our second time using Munsterbus. The first time was with our 2 young adult children in 2019. We enjoyed our time in Ireland with Tony so much the first time, we wanted to do it again. Linda was great about communicating and set us up with a different experience than we did the first time. We stayed in great hotels along the way, all very convenient to restaurants and bars. Tony was a fantastic guide with just enough information at each location, a great sense of humor, and safe driving skills. We used a 16 passenger bus that was very comfortable even on the longer driving days. It was awesome to never have to worry about driving directions, making plans or finding parking. A highlight of the trip was visiting a castle not on any regular itinerary. One couple in our group had ancestors who once owned a castle that is now ruins in a field near Killkenny. Tony and Linda went out of their way to put this little dot on the map on our tour. I can't recommend Munsterbus enough. This is the only way to travel in Ireland!

We booked our trip very last minute-under 30 days. Munster bus was very accommodating to our request to do a 6 day trip around Ireland . It's always a good feeling when you walk out of the airport with your bags and see your name being held by someone. This person was Tony. He was to be our driver/guide for the 6 days. He was always professional, friendly, flexible, fun, ... He definitely gets to know your group and engages everyone in the conversation. His knowledge of Ireland is remarkable. His presentation style is easy to listen to. We had wanted to see several distilleries, some not on his normal route. It was absolutely no problem to change up plans mid stream. He seems to up for a good adventure and a new experience. He met us at Dublin airport, drove to Cobh/Cork, Galway, Donegal, Londonderry, Belfast before dropping us back at Dublin.

Munster Bus tours made all the arrangements for hotels which were all clean and centrally located, with breakfast included. I would DEFINITELY recommend Munster Bus and if you are fortunate to get Tony as your guide you are blessed.

Our group of 10 had the most amazing 7 day tour with Munsterbus Tours! We travelled from Dublin through Galway, over to Killarney and back up through Cork and Killeen.

This tour was originally scheduled pre-Covid. Linda was phenomenal as we postponed, changed, added people and finally got here Linda was able to work out all details and we visited both the standard spots as well as off the beaten track places.

Kevin was our leader from Munsterbus. He was amazing! A skilled driver… full of knowledge about pubs and restaurants in each town… able to provide interesting facts as we traveled…. Just basically a great guy with a wonderful sense of humor!

You can’t go wrong with Munsterbus. Reach out to Linda and she will set you up on a trip to remember!

Wonderful tour experience! We did a private tour from Cork to the Cliffs of Moher and from start to finish, it was a wonderful experience and the views were amazing!

I initially requested info through the online form, and Cathy responded quickly and with a thorough response including all booking details. I booked immediately - it was so easy!

The day of our tour, Tony was waiting for us when we walked out of our hotel a few minutes early. The car was clean, comfortable, roomy and he even had a bottle of water for each of us. Tony was so friendly and knowledgeable and just a joy to spend the day with. Unfortunately, it rained most of the day but Tony diligently kept an eye on the weather and stopped for an early lunch for us to wait on the weather to clear, and it did. This allowed him to get us to the Cliffs at the perfect time for some amazing views! He even got us to a quieter, less commercial entrance too! He patiently waited while we explored and made sure we knew to take our time, as long as we wanted. We enjoyed for awhile until the wind picked up and rain began again, and before we were even down the mountain road, the fog rolled in and the view would have been diminished. He had a few other stops along the way home and each one was great!

All in all, it was an absolutely wonderful day! I highly recommend MunsterBus for your tours, and Tony was the best! We will definitely use MunsterBus again and ask for Tony on our next tour as well!

Had a private excursion to Galway with a stop each way to break up the drive. Tony was a great driver offering information along the way and had a great sense of humor. It was a long trek- but worth it!

Our 4 day trip from Galway to Dublin- by way of Cliffs of Moher, Dingle, Kerry, Killarney, Cork, Kilkenny, etc was much more than we even anticipated. Ireland is an amazing country.
Kevin was our tour guide that would recommend things to see/do each day and let us decide. He always had a smile, funny story, and lots of history. He knew many sights we had never even heard of. Outstanding vacation!
