At Day Tour Company, our motto is leave it to us. As soon as you step into one of our offices, you will see that we stand by that motto in everything we do to facilitate your happy holiday in Ireland.
It is our goal to maximise your time here in Ireland, whether you’re passing through on a European journey, here visiting relatives, or planning to move to Ireland long term, we assure you that no one will be as accommodating as our Day Tour Team. Not only will they advise you on what Day Tours are likely to suit you, but they are also happy to advise you on what’s good to see and do in all of Ireland’s largest towns and cities.
We have several offices and accommodation centers nationwide including in Dublin, Cork, Limerick and Killarney!
We are well aware that the traditional model of a day tour doesn’t suit everyone. Too many of our competitors only serve one demographic or the other, either their tours are too loud and obnoxious for families and older tourists, or they’re too boring and lifeless for the energetic backpacker of today. At Day Tour Company we’re proud to say that we don’t believe in making that distinction and we don’t see any reason why, young and old can’t enjoy our tours together. Don’t believe us? Then pop into our Day Tours offices in Dublin, Cork, Limerick or Killarney when a bus is leaving and you will see the broad demographic of travellers who take our tours.
Undoubtedly you will come to Ireland hoping to visit all of our natural and historic attractions such as the Cliffs of Moher, the Ring of Kerry, the Dingle Peninsula, the Giant’s Causeway, Blarney Castle, Connemara, Kilmainham Gaol and many more. For most of you the main question will be how. How should I get to Dingle, or the Cliffs of Moher, or the Giant’s Causeway? Should I go with public transport and fly solo or should I take a Day Tour? Allow me to explain the two different scenarios that you are likely to encounter. Let’s take for example if you want to go and see the Ring of Kerry and you are staying in Cork City. To do this with Bus Eireann
(the national bus service) you will need to take a bus from Cork to Killarney. A return ticket will cost you €28. After two hours you will arrive in Killarney. You will have some lovely views of the McGillicuddy Reeks and the Lakes of Killarney, but I’m afraid that with Bus Eireann, that is as far as you’ll go. To get to the National Park, you will need to walk for an hour outside the town or else take a taxi to the park and then another taxi to Torc Waterfall. This will cost approximately a further €20. If you want to go further on the Ring of Kerry, e.g. to Waterville, Sneem, Killorglin, the Connor Pass, and Cahersiveen, you will have to take several more buses (assuming you would like to actually stop in these places instead of just seeing them from a bus window) or rent a car. Either way it could cost you a further €50. And let’s not forget that you still have to make it back to Killarney to get your return bus back to Cork.
Sound good to you?
I didn’t think so.
Now, let me present you with another scenario. You take the Ring of Kerry Day Tour. Your bus will pick you up outside our Bridge Street office in the city centre where our friendly, and multilingual staff will check you in and will allow you to leave your luggage in our Day Tours office for the duration of your tour. Your tour will start at half past eight and your guide will give you an insightful, informative and most importantly fun guided tour of Ireland’s most beautiful region. You will stop off at Killarney National Park, Torc Waterfall, Muckross House, Cahersiveen, Dingle Bay, and the Connor Pass. Not only this but your guide will advise you on the best pubs and restaurants along the way. But wait for it, I a haven’t even told you the best part yet! You can get all of this in one day tour for only €35, or €30 if you are a student! That is over half of the cost of seeing the Ring of Kerry on public transport.
And this example is true for all of our tour destinations. We can guarantee that we offer a service and a price that is competitive and that beats our competitors hands down. You see at Day Tour Company, we are far more interested in showcasing Ireland as a fantastic holiday destination for young and old than we are with anything else. That is why 7 days a week, 365 days a year, we work hard to provide you with the best options for tours and events during your stay in Ireland. And remember, if you’re having difficulty deciding what to do, pop in to any of our day tours offices and leave it to us :).
