I'm trying to do some research on travelling to Ireland. I would like to visit Doolin just to go visit the Cliffs of Moher. I would also like to go to Killarney and walk on the beach. Then my last stop would be to go to Dublin. I would like to go on a escorted coach tour. Does anyone recommend a certain company? I'm looking into irelandescorted.com . I will be travelling alone and would feel comfortable taking a tour of this type. Any suggestions will help.
Paddywagon is one of the most popular- though I have never seen any comment good or bad on them here. It will not be difficult to get a tour that goes to Clare, Kerry and Dublin. If cliffs are your thing, you could go to the Aran Islands, or Slieve League in Donegal either. Check your post above- Killarney is inland, so has no proper beach (just a bit of lakeshore...).
THANKS FOR THE CORRECTION. I think in my research someone referred to it as a beach so it has stuck in my mind. They said it was near where U2's Bono lives. I will research the tour company you suggested. Thanks a lot.
It's Killiney beach in Dublin you are looking for :)
As far as tour companies go it does depend a little on your age (or age at heart!). I travelled with Paddywagon and had a great time, another is shamrocker - these are both aimed at a younger crowd but older (50+) people where on my tour and they enjoyed themselves too. These trips tend to start and end in Dublin.
I like CIE Tours or 1-2 Travel.
