Our initial impressions of Limerick were not positive to be honest, as we found it grubby, down at heel and full of tawdry shops and coffee houses. We decided to take the tour to try to amend our view. We arrived at the advertised stop at the appointed time of 12 noon (according to the board) only to see the... More

We toured this bus on b/h Sunday. The commentary was very low, and could hear it properly. Some of the customers that boarded the bus were individuals that spat down at public aswell as being very rude to those on board. It was very disappointing, and strongly think that all u16s must be accompanied. I also would welcome a second... More

It's a good tour. I enjoyed the sights and the historical information. I unfortunately started too late in the day so I could not hop off for visits because I would not be picked up by a later bus. Good overview of the city though.

Just been on this tour with my partner and found the tour very interesting. We have been to limerick many times but learnt a lot more about this maigical city by doing the tour. To walk the whole tour would probably take you 4 hours! So the bus is by far the best way!! The bus is over 25 years... More

This tour lasts about 50 minutes. We saw very little of historic value. The quaint small shops, narrow streets gives it a feel of a quieter era. It reminds me of the small town I grew up in as a child.

The bus takes you on two short loops. Between traffic and stops every few blocks, you could walk the loops faster. The windows were grimy, which made pictures impossible. The commentary lacked any depth. Save your money and walk around downtown yourself.

Limerick is not a very large city and we found this tour adequate to help us get our bearings. There are two routes that are about 45 minutes in total. The driver was not very animated and I think that the tour was pre-recorded. At first we waited for the first bus on a Sunday and while the bus was... More
