I think I would not do a rail tour again. My husband and I did the 1 day Blarney Stone tour. Getting to the tour was easy but the amount of time spent on the train with no guidance or discussion on what to look for while looking at the countryside from the tour company felt like a waste of the day. No one mentioned that Cork had flooded a few days before our tour and I am not sure if that took away from the tour but nothing really stood out for us while there. The trip to Queenstown was nice but there was a wedding at he church do we coldnt go in and there was only an hour half to visit but no real explanations of what to do except to visit the museum.
