Trip Report Smartours-Magical Ireland- loved Belfast!

Jump to last reply

Just returned from Magical Ireland with Smartours. Our first trip with them. No complaints at all. Great hotels. The tour guide and driver are the same which is really nice! He told Irish jokes, and was excellent. They farm out the tour to Abbey Tours. You are on your own forall lunch and 1/2 of the meals which is also nice. Had plenty of free time on your own. Only had two optional tours which is good.

HIGHLIGHT: Belfast! Favorite part of trip. Don't take a tour with a company that doesn't do Belfast. The Titanic experience as they call it was amazing. Totally impressive. Also loved the dog working the sheep thing.

Bottom line is that we enjoyed the tour. Lots of driving so had time to socialize and snooze. Didn't need extra time in any of the places we went. Lots of green, cliffs and water. Mainly a scenery trip. People in Ireland were super friendly and nice, food really good, and loved the pubs.

I would recommend the Magical Ireland tour with Smartours. Some folks on our bus had takesn like 6-9 trips.
