      Perfectly balanced tour!
      What a great experience the 8-Day Tour with Beyond the Glass was! From the beginning of the booking process to the drop-off and e-contact after the tour, I felt that my vacation was in good hands. At all times James, tour guide and owner of the company, was very attentive and showed great flexibility for adapting to our wishes and needs. His Irish spirit and love for the country were apparent and he did a great job in inspiring similar feelings in me. The tour's itinerary is thought through very well and combines the most important spots with calmer areas and hidden gems - giving a chance for an all-around Irish experience. James' knowledge of the regions travelled, as well as their history, flora and fauna was very impressive and I learned loads during the tour. Besides the great hikes, cycles and traveling parts, there was ample opportunity to explore Irish culture and cuisine (with the group and alone). Both the restaurants and accomodations chosen for our group were of excellent quality and made the trip even more enjoyable. To summarise: The tour was a perfect combination of activities along the beautiful Wild Atlantic Way with many interesting insights into Irish history and culture making for a fun and memorable trip. If you want to explore Ireland "beyond the glass" you will be in the right place on one of James' tours! :)

      Wonderful 8 days
      Wonderful 8 day tour around the wild Atlantic Way. Edwina, our driver and guide really knew the ropes and the ways around and also gave great overview of the context of the many places we visited. It was great there were only 12 people on the tour. I was the only Australian with 11 Americans but we all had lots of fun. The tour included excellent accomodation and 4 star eating options, free time to explore and interesting historical places to visit. The Skelligs Michael boat tour was a personal highlight for me and we were lucky the boat could brave the seas on the day we booked. The tour also listened to the preferences of the travellers and made and effort to include them. Highly recommend this Company .

      Small group, adventurous Ireland with excellent guide
      Simply amazing! You never know what you will get when booking a tour: hotels, people, activities. Traveling with Beyond the Glass was as close to perfect as you can get. I was traveling with my wife and upper teenage kids. James is not just the guide, he owns the company. His lifelong love of Ireland came clearly through even before the tour started. Hotels were great, every one of them. James personally knew many of the proprietors, which afforded us some special access along the way. Activities. I wanted an active, adventurous holiday, and got just that. From the first bike ride, through challenging hikes in rain and shine. We got an excellent taste of many of the core Ireland tour spots and even more off the beaten track ones. Group. We were a small group, 12 in all. The van is quite comfortable, even when full. The group consisted of people from their late teens and into their 50s. We all got along quite well, which makes for an even better experience. Bottom line. I am 100% happy with my choice to join the Beyond the Glass tour rather that go it alone. I would not have chosen one of the larger, more sedate tours. My family feels the same way.

      Active, fun, well-balanced tour!
      What a fantastic week we had on the 8 day Wild Atlantic Way tour. This was our first group tour and we had a blast. James offered a perfect amount of activity each day and every day was different, beautiful, and exciting. James was a great tour guide and really cared about giving us a meaningful and fun experience. Besides learning a lot from him about the history of Ireland, he was a really fun guy to hang around with during our week. If you want an active, but not hard-core experience in Ireland, this is the trip for you!

      Fabulous Experience
      James did a fabulous job. He had just the right amount of hiking or biking each day and he chose beautiful locations. We liked every hotel we stayed in and the food was great. I appreciated that James gave us suggestions of places we could go in the evening by recommending restaurants or pubs with authentic Irish music. Also, James took good care of us. For example, he was very helpful in calling the airlines for us when our luggage was delayed, or ordering an e-bike for me when I was nervous about a particular ride. He always made sure to individualize a hiking path if someone in our group needed an easier route -they were able to do that and meet us at the end. Lastly, James shared great information about Ireland and he was just an all around good, caring, fun guy.

      Book with Confidence! This is a magical trip!
      Wow! The 8-Day Adventure on the Wild Atlantic Way takes you on an epic journey that's an absolute blast! Simply magical! Our guide James designed a terrific trip! His hospitality and passion for Ireland shined throughout each day. He showed us places my wife and I would never have figured out on our own. The hotels were delightful. The restaurant choices were delicious. Our travel group was great fun! We listened to some great Irish music along the way. Each of the biking and hiking excursions featured some breathtaking scenery. Every day just seemed to be more beautiful than the day before. It kinda felt like we were going "further up and further in"! (to borrow a quote from C.S. Lewis' Narnia books.). Do yourself a favor. Just book this trip and go. You will not regret it.

      Memory making adventure!
      Our 8 day excursion was filled with stunning views, wonderful hikes and cycling through the Wild Atlantic Way region of Ireland. What we enjoyed the most was the camaraderie within our small tour group and James sharing his stories and passion for nature. Our hotels were exquisite, restaurant choices were great and just the right amount of daily exercise to fully enjoy the experience. We'd highly recommend Beyond The Glass Tours for those wanting a combination of walk/hiking, cycling and enjoying Ireland's beautiful landscapes. It was a wonderful adventure!

      An Unforgettable Experience
      Our Beyond the Glass Cycle and Hiking Tour of the West Atlantic Way of Ireland is an experience that will remain an absolute highlight of travel for us. The Owner and Tour Guide of Beyond The Glass enthusiastically works to ensure all his clients are happy with every day of their time with his tour and is informative, knowledgeable and considerate in every way. I had a minor medical issue during our tour with James and his concern and advice was truly valuable and helpful - we had an amazing time with a great group and I think it was James’ personality that ensured the group just gelled. It was a fantastic time.

      Just do it!
      Truly a life-changing experience for my husband and for me. James provided such a unique itinerary, with lots of exercise to stunning vistas and scenic panoramas. As we traveled, he played traditional and contemporary Irish music, and he always entertained and educated us with Irish history and interesting tid-bits. We stayed at a variety of quaint inns that provided sumptuous breakfasts, and several for dinners that included Fabulous music at night. We were also fortunate to share this experience with six other world travelers, and that added enormously to our adventure. James- great job! We’ll be back☘️

      Unforgettable Week in Westerrn Ireland
      If you want beautiful scenery and just enough exercise to offset those pints of stout, Beyond the Glass is a perfect choice. Our group of 11 bonded in the care of James, an attentive, amusing and knowledgable host whose love of Ireland quickly becomes contagious. A reasonable fitness level is enough to complete the hikes and cycles, with more challenging options on some days. We covered a lot of ground, including Killarny National Park, Dingle and the Isle of Inishmore, all of it breathtaking. By the time the trip ended, it felt like we were all friends. What more can you ask of a tour? A wonderful introduction to Ireland.

      The cycling rides were really spectacular. Everything James does was first class. Learning Irish history from James and his interesting stories were icing on the cake.

      Tremendous trip!
      James used a wonderful combination of personal experience and local guides to give us a unique look at the amazing west coast of Ireland and the Wild Atlantic Way. We saw the major attractions like Blarney Castle but were also treated to off-the-path gems like the Gougane Barra Hotel. James’s knowledge of the areas and the activities allowed him to adapt the day’s schedule as weather and/or the participants abilities required. We would HIGHLY recommend James and Beyond The Glass.

      Seeing Ireland's Wild Atlantic Way
      My wife and two children 21 and 18 just got back last week from our 8 day Adventure Tour with James from Beyond the Glass. What a great trip!! The mix of hiking and biking was a fabulous way to see the Atlantic coast of Ireland. Throw in a beautiful boat trip through the lakes of Killarney and a day trip to the Aran isle of Inishmore. All the logistics are taken care of, including excellent accomodations each night. The pace of each hike or bike was moderate and something that everyone in my group was able to sustain. If you have not done a small group tour of Ireland, I could not recommend James and BTG more highly. On foot or bike, it's truly the best way to see Ireland's Wild Atlantic Way.

      One of the best times you will ever have.
      Truly one of the most enjoyable experiences in our lives. Seeing the beauty of Ireland's western coast from atop a bicycle or from seaside hiking path can't be beat. James was a fantastic guide. He filled us in on the history and geography of all of the areas along the tour route. Accommodations were first rate, the food was delicious, and the people were always warm and welcoming. We didn't want it to end. We have already decided to go back and do it again.

      Unforgettable Wild Atlantic Way Trip
      James was an awesome tour guide and planned a wonderful trip along the Wild Atlantic Way. The 8 day tour was a good mix of hiking and biking along with visiting castles, abbeys and doing a bit of shopping/site-seeing among the small towns along the coast. He scheduled everything which was a nice change. The large passenger van was very comfortable and spacious. Everything about the trip was enjoyable and seamless from my point of view. I'd highly recommend the 8 day trip or any outing with Beyond the Glass/James!

    excellent tour with James. Nice easy pace with numerous stops where he gave loads of information about Cork, its history & its people.
    The bikes were new and of great quality, well capable of tackling the couple of hills on the tour. A very enjoyable 3 hours for the whole family. Would definitely recommend.

    James was our guide and he was fantastic. He has an amazing knowledge of the city, its history and how Cork has had its influence not only in the country but on the world stage. The cycle was relaxed with lots of stops and full of fascinating facts and stories. You won't see Cork the same again after this trip. Real insight and just a fabulous thing to do in the city. Could not recommend highly enough!

    James is as efficient as he is easy-going. It took him no time to get us set up properly on our bikes and on our way. Like so many of the Irish people we met, he not only knows his history, he knows how to tell a story. We hope someday to sign up for one of his longer adventures.

    We loved this ride with James! We saw many sites in Cork and James told story’s about all of them. He is not only informative but also kind, charming and personable. All the bikes were in great condition and easy to ride (even on the two hills we had to climb). We covered historical, cultural and scenic parts of the city. We really couldn’t ask for more! Take this tour you will love it!

    Did the Cork City Cycle Tour with James and Leonard and had an excellent experience!

    This is a great way to see Cork City if you’re tight on time. This was our first time here and we saw and learned about more of the City than we would have on our own!
    We passed Cork’s main points of interest and heard the interesting history behind each site, combined with humour and the opportunity to ask questions.

    The pace of the cycling was very fair - Cork is pretty bike-friendly and there are frequent stops. I am not the most physically “fit” and had no trouble keeping up. Doable for most adults and even children.

    Overall, if you enjoy cycling, history, and a good time, this is a must-do!

    James has all the enthusiasm and knowledge to operate and present a tour of Cork City Ireland. His bikes are kept in good shape. He is familiar with the landmarks and the stories abounding around them. James is careful to look out for those on his tours. I would recommend James and his company most highly.
