Reviews for Ireland train holiday, wild Atlantic way


review 23 Sep 2022

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?

The wonderful coastal and mountain scenery of counties Cork and Kerry, and the traditional music in the pubs. Friendliness of both locals and other tourists.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?

The location of the accommodation determines where you'll be staying each evening. However, any guide-book will be suggesting lots of itinerary possibilities and you could end up wanting to go everywhere and see everything. That would entail a lot of driving and the coastal roads out and along the peninsulas and over mountain passes are narrow and winding so you really can't rush to get to places. Leave yourself plenty of time. Do your research prior to the trip and decide what your must-sees are ahead of arrival.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

Definitely - we stayed in small-scale, family-run accommodation, ate in local restaurants and booked a folk-concert, boat-trip, and kayak trip locally. It would be difficult to do this trip without driving, unless maybe cycling but maybe the roads are not ideal for that.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?

Very good.
