      A great tour with Gerry, the best tour guide/bus driver in Ireland!
      We had a most wonderful tour because of our tour guide/bus driver Gerry! He gave us so much information along the 2 hour ride to the Cliffs of Moher, really explaining things along the way. He took great care of our whole group all along the way. He explained our options at the Aran Island of Inisheer for touring, pony guided covered wagon, different type of wagon, ride a bike or walk. He told us about the different place to eat. All good recommendations. He really became my hero before we left for the trip. The trip leaves at 9:00 am at the Kinlay Hostel. There’s no bathroom nearby to use before you leave. The worst thing is there’s no working toilet on the bus!!! Let that sink in. You’re going to be on the bus for 2 hours, each way, with no working toilet. At 8:45 I asked the general manager/representative from Wild Atlantic Way if there was a bathroom close by. He was very rude and brusque, and told me no. He also mentioned, very emphatically, that the bus was leaving at 9:00 sharp. There’s no bathroom available anywhere near the meeting place. I inquired about a toilet on the bus and was told no. Gerry overheard me and walked me most of the way to the Victoria Hotel. I told him I was worried about being left behind and my husband was on the bus. I told him what the WAW representative told me. Gerry nicely but firmly told me not to worry. He said he was the bus driver and he would not leave without me. I hurried and made onto the bus at 8:59. If the WAW representative had bothered to be half as kind and helpful as Gerry I’d have been back on the bus even sooner. He is a very poor representative of your company. Gerry, on the other hand, is wonderful! He is great. You should recognize him and honor in some way. A little kindness (and common sense go a long way. You must have toilets on your buses.

      Perfectly tailored for all experience levels!
      I had such a great time on this ride. I showed horses competitively for the majority of my life, so I always brace myself for group rides being painfully boring for me, but they (brilliantly) split advanced riders off into a separate group, so I had an experience that was my speed (no pun intended). And the views were of course beautiful, as they are in all of Ireland :) One thing to note: plan how you’ll get there ahead of time. Killarney’s city center is very small and walkable but the stable is of course a couple miles outside town, so it was my first time attempting to find a ride and I had underestimated just how limited the transportation options are in Killarney (none of the taxi or ride-share apps that operate in Ireland had ANY available drivers and there were no taxis near my hotel—I was fortunate enough that the stable employs awesome people who were willing to move my horseback ride to a later time when I wasn’t able to make it for my originally scheduled time).

      Worth every penny! I could do it all day!
      I couldn’t stop smiling. One of the most amazing experiences of my life!! The cruise by the Cliff was overwhelming in the best way possible.

      Amazing visit riding e-bikes discovering the Aran Island
      I always heard about e-bikes, I just didn’t realize how much fun they were. Once we arrived on Aran Island I was as greeted by a friendly man who retrieved my reservation and gave a demonstration how “How to Use “ e-bikes. Quickly after demo we were on our way to touring the island. Riding the e-bike was as easy as eating mash potatoes. Would highly recommend!

      Tour of Inishmore
      We had a great time on Gabriel's tour of the island. We toured the island by minibus stopping at points of interest, hiked to Dun Aonghasa, did some shopping, and met Gabriel's goats! It was a great way to get the local perspective and see the island with zero stress.

      Alan was great
      Our guide was Alan and very fun and informative. The boat part of the trip got canceled and they substituted with a cave adventure which I thought was a dud. Would recommend the caves.

      A ferry ride back in time
      One of the best trips we have taken. Paul and David were fantastic and though it rained most of the day, we had a blast. St Patrick's Island was so surreal. It was cold and rainy and some of us were prepared. Wish we could have seen more of Ashford Castle and the little village of Cong but some of our were drenched and the rain kept us from walking around too much. I would definitely do this again.

      Cancelled without notice
      We drove 2 hours out of our way and waited and no one showed. The tour was cancelled due to rain and we were not contacted.

      my experience is that it is some kind of scam or hustle
      45 euros for what? Viator sent us a voucher for the Tea Room at the visitor center. The staff there didn't have any idea what we were talking about and had never seen a voucher like the one we had. Every self guided tour we have taken in the past at least supplied us with suggestions and a bit of description. This one gave nothing. I'm disputing the charge with my CC company as soon as I'm back in the states. I think it is a scam. IT is no reflection on the National Park itself which was nice enough

      Scary
      The ride to the island was terrible people were vomiting because of the rough wide with 27mph winds. They should have canceled the visit.

      This cruise was disappointing. Minimal narration, which included details about when lighthouses were built and how fast they blinked. Returned 40 minutes late after numerous circular turns which I assume were in search of whales, though no explanation was given. Cannot recommend.

      Great experience
      Drove up a short way from Galway to make this trip. Great experience in a beautiful setting. The dog and handler were amazing. Our daughter got to bottle feed a lamb and pet the sheep. Well worth the drive and at a reasonable price.

      Easy, fun, amazing sights and scenery
      Had a blast! The process of getting the bikes was super easy, directions to the place, not so much, but we found it. Even though it was a self guided tour, the guy at the bike shop gave us great recommendations and the path to the Muckross House and Gardens and the Torc Waterfall was fun and we saw some gorgeous scenery. The E-bikes were easy to use and got us everywhere we wanted to go.

    What a wonderful experience! I was a solo traveler and would absolutely recommend this tour. The pace of the tour was perfect as we stopped in Gougane Barra, Mizen Head, and Clonakilty. We had a good amount of time at Mizen Head and I did not feel rushed at all. It was such a wonderful day!!

    The host was amazing! We had a great time!

    We had 4 adults and 3 children. It was wonderful learning about not only Cork’s history but also history about Ireland in general. Highly recommend.
