    I enjoyed of the trip: it was full of pleasant emotions, because we saw the magnificent hills surrounded with calm lakes. From the distance and closer we saw the ocean coast and it was wonderful!
    Our experienced driver tried to show us the most picturesque views of our trip!
    Thanks a lot!

    The Connemara area is just absolutely stunning and there's truly nothing like it anywhere else. Our bus driver, Mike, was excellent. He gave shared a lot of history of the area and how it's being protected today. He also made several stops for us to get out and take pictures. We opted to go to Kylemore Abbey because of the rainy weather. The abbey, church, and extensive gardens were quite beautiful. This was also where we had lunch and the lunch was quite good. I highly recommend this tour from Galway!

    I really wish I could give this tour a better rating, because the scenery was beautiful, the places we stopped were interesting, and the guide was very knowledgeable. However, the bus was so horrible that I could never recommend it. Picture the amount of room you have in an airline seat, then divide that by half. I'm 5'8" tall, and my knees were jammed into the seat in front of me. I was sitting on the aisle, and I basically spent the entire time twisted in strange contortions, with one or two legs hanging into the aisle, trying to find a comfortable position. My son, who is 6'2", was also on the aisle and was equally miserable. The two people we were sitting next to, in the window seats, were also contorted. I can't even begin to describe how uncomfortable it was. At one point, my mom (who is 5'4"), moved her body from right to left. Her knee banged into the seat in front of her so hard that it ripped the skin off her knee through her pants. I had to get a first aid kit from the driver at the next stop, because the blood was soaking through her pants and dripping down in into her socks. In addition, we met the bus at the meeting point rather than being picked up at our hotel like the other riders, and by that time the bus was basically full so we couldn't get four seats together. The kids in the seat next to us talked LOUDLY the entire time, having zero interest in what the guide was saying over the intercom system. Because this was a group tour, there was zero flexibility in how long we stayed at each stop. I don't usually book group tours, but I made an exception for this one due to the excellent review. I wish I hadn't. This was a physically miserable day for all of us.

    Great guide and the highlight was the Abbey for us.
    Could have stayed there a lot longer
    Guided helped out by selling entry to Abbey in van But could have just included that in price, no?

    Mike was our tour guide and he was just fantastic. We really enjoyed this experience and we went on a lot of tours during our time in Ireland-this was by far one of our favorites! Mike was very knowledgeable about the area and its history with plenty of stops along the way for more photos. Highly recommend!

    This was our first tour in Ireland and probably one of our favorites! We had a great guide, Pete, who was a wealth of information and made the trip so much fun! We were able to get some beautiful scenic stops in. My husband and I stopped at Connemara for a few hours, which left time for a hike and ssome coffee at the little cafe. This was such a memorable tour!

    While disappointed that the Abby was closed to the public on the day we went, the rest of the excursion was excellent. Mike is an excellent driver and skillful tour guide. We were delighted with the pace, the comfort, and the delightful commentary. So glad we chose this tour.

    Absolutely wonderful! Our driver/guide, Mike, was so knowledgeable and welcoming. There were only 4 of us on the coach so he could really go into detail. He could not have been nicer - funny too!

  • 22-Aug-2018

    Despite not normally being a fan of coach trips, I cannot recommend this highly enough.
    The scenery was stunning in Connemara and the trip to Kylemore Abbey was wonderful.
    We had numerous stops and photo opportunities along the way. The driver Damian was very knowledgeable, entertaining and gave us an interesting commentary throughout the day.
    Would highly recommend - very good value for money.

    We had Shamus as our driver and guide and he was AWESOME!!so nice and informative and would stop when we wanted to snap a couple extra pictures. We only had about 15 people on this tour and it was great. Would definitely go again with Shamus...Shout out to Shamus..you were awesome.
