Have only a few days, but would like to see as much of the spectacular Southwest as possible? This 4 day tour takes you from Galway to Killarney to Cork (or Limerick) or reverse! If you're ok with being on the move, this short but oh so sweet tour is for you! You'll take advantage of the excellent and easy Irish rail service and simply take the train from Dublin to Galway (or Cork) where I'll be waiting. We'll be on our way in elegance and comfort to Killarney with stops along the way. After three overnights in Killarney and two full day tours, its off to Cork where you'll overnight and continue onward to Dublin via train.

Hi - my daughter and I just completed a four day tour with Gerard. I have done several of these tours with a private guide or organized tour and Gerard clearly stands out as our best overall all experience. I would highly recommend him to all. Gerard was not only an enjoyable person to spend 8 hour with each day but saved us a lot of time and money. At the start he directed us to take a train vs private driver for a simple leg which saved us hours and hundreds of Euros.
