I took this tour in 2018. Our time to meet the group varied from 8am to almost 9am. We of course needed to get our breakfast and some days be packed and ready to get on the bus by the time. There weren't large stretches of time each day, but there was one afternoon free in Dublin, a free day in Dingle and many days we finished planned events around 2 or 3 with no group dinner that evening. Days that included a bus drive would have less free time, but there would be stops during the day to see something and have an hour or so on your own. But 2nd days anywhere you almost always were free for a couple hours in the afternoon and then the evening.
