Galvins are not a Waterford company, they are based in Cork, though I see they do tours from various ports. Waterford and Kilkenny are very easy to tour from Dunmore East, having a coach makes it easier again, I do not have any information about the company, but there should not be any problems, most of the time you will be looking around off the coach. You could ask if they could incorporate one of Jack Burchells walking tours of Waterford (in the 'Viking Triangle', across the road from the Waterford Crystal showrooms).
There is also Reginalds Tower( civic building in continuous use for over 1000 years), and two museums - I think the Medieval one is the most interesting with some very special exibits and the whole thing is built over a Medieval undercroft which you tour. In there is also the Great Charter Roll which is Waterford's city charter and is the oldest document of its type in Europe dating back to the 1300s. It compares with the book of Kells, in importance, but is much easier to see!
Thank you so much. I just have not found any reviews on this company and also thanks for the advice for the walking tour!
They must be quite popular. I see them on the roads regularly.
I just wanted to post that we had 2 fabulous tour days with this company in Waterford and Cobh and we could not have been more pleased. I highly recommend them. We had a delightful driver, Richard who gave a running commentary for our group of 16. We had a large bus and the cost was reasonable. He was on time picking us up from our ship in both ports. Their web site does not allow for endorsements which is a shame!
A year ago we had the pleasure of being escorted around Ireland by Galvins Coach Tours and Roy Anderson.
When we go to Ireland again, we will contact Galvins directly because our Tour company (which was out of New York) left us high and dry on several occasions and Galvins Coach Tours (owner and our driver) picked up the pieces and ensured we had a fabulous holiday. I cannot recommend this company and its owners highly enough.
P.S. Our driver was delightful, witty, and full of historical information.
Yes Galvins coaches is a very good compagny, luxery coaches and very friendly staff.
greetings Nikolai Limburg from Holland
