  • I would have loved to have stopped to see some of the place the tour guide mentioned.

  • Richard and Sean were an amazing team! Loved it!

  • the guidePeter is very informative and humorous. And the driver Sarah is just amazing!!!

  • Great tour! Long day on the bus, but well worth it. So happy with this tour.

  • The cliffs were stunning and worth every minute and penny even with the insane winds and cold. Galway had a nice 30 minute walking tour led by our guide and then had about an hour to grab and bite and explore the town center. Nicholas was our tour guide and did an excellent job sharing history, tips, and stories. He even sang for us while playing the yukelele on the drive!!! Great job!

  • We had an amazing time the driver and the guide were both helpful Noel and Marshall keep it up guys xx

  • This was my second time to the Cliffs and it still felt like a once in a lifetime experience. We had a fantastic Guide and Driver who were kind enough to invite us up front since we were some of the only English speakers on board. The views from the front of the bus are AMAZING - the journey was as breathtaking as the destinations. If you are able to sit in the first row of seats and there isn't anyone with a mobility concern that might need those seats - do it! Photo opportunities galore. The stops were all timed well - we had enough time at the Cliffs to hike around to all of the vantage points and still had time to grab some soup at the cafe and peruse the shop. The Burren stop was quick but adequate. We had just enough time in Galway but I would suggest taking a separate trip to Galway if you really want time for a stroll, shopping AND a pint. I also really appreciated the music that our Guide played on the bus - it was a great mixture of traditional folk music, some of the Pop greats, and even more current acts like Hozier personal favorite!. The Guide and Driver also gave us all helpful tips for restaurants and pubs as we made it back into Dublin which was greatly appreciated.

  • Breathtaking trip with outstanding Guide and Driver!

  • This was a jam packed day trip well worth the price. It was too foggy to see the cliffs on the day we visited but the drive was so scenic and lush.....just like you see in the movies. Galway is so charming, wish we had more time there but it was a good taste of what the smaller cities in Ireland have to offer.

  • Some minor bus issues but otherwise a great tour. Our guide, Kim, was cheerful and funny telling some lovely old Irish stories. Thank you for a great trip.
