“Pretty Good”
Reviewed August 23, 2012

Family price for 4 was 24 Euro. Trip was right on schedule. Lasted 60 minutes as scheduled. Driver was nice. Information was okay which is why I've rated only as VG. Seemed to have a lot of redundancy. Look, Shannon river on the right...now look, Shannon river on the left. Seems like a lot more tid bits of facts would be better. We did a walking tour just prior to this bus trip and he had more information in 20 minutes then we had the whole bus trip. Otherwise, fun experience for the family! BTW, our hotel offers a discount if we show the key but we forgot and the driver didn't ask. Could have saved about 10 Euro.

“A good way to get an idea of the layout of the city.”
Reviewed September 6, 2011

Foul weather didn't impact on the tour. Top of bus has a part covered roof and although a bit cool it was quite comfortable. This is a good way to get your bearings but note that unlike other city bus tours there are no stops.

“I never knew Limerick was so wonderful!”
Reviewed April 26, 2011

While stopped in Limerick on a wonderful sunny day, I joined a small group I was driving as they got on this open top double decker tour of Limerick, more to enjoy the weather than anything. This is not a city normally on the tour route, but with the new tunnel relieving traffic, its history is now been explored more.
I was amazed how good the story of this historically important city was told with excitement by the local guide! It seemed to be a passion for the driver/guide named Pat.
We spent an hour which seemed packed at every corner with amazing achievements of this city that I have new admiration for!
If you’re passing through I would recommend this real pleasure.
