      Highlights of Western Ireland
      This day trip was a highlight of my vacation to Ireland! Our tour guide Tommy was funny and informative. The trip started with a drive through the Burren, I wish we had been able to stop to walk around here, but the views were beautiful even from the bus. Visiting Inisheer was delightful. We chose to explore the island on foot, but there were options to take a bus or carriage tour or rent bikes. It was amazing to view the Cliffs of Moher from the ocean and then to walk on top of the cliffs - both were beautifully scenic. The only downside for me was eating in the local pub for lunch - there wasn’t an option to eat elsewhere or do something else during this time and it wasn’t a great restaurant for someone with dietary restrictions (glad I brought lots of snacks with me). Also, please add an option for tipping via credit card or Venmo. My bad for not looking up tipping policy before the trip, and only had American dollars with me.

      Breathtaking Scenery
      Patrick was an excellent driver and guide. He was also incredibly helpful and kind. We were blessed with a beautiful sunny day, perfect for the drive through Connemara's stunning scenery. Kylemore Abbey and gardens are well worth a visit. There is lots to see and our 2 1/2 hour stop was timed perfectly. We passed by so many breathtaking places, along quiet country roads off the beaten track. I am so glad I booked this trip. It was excellent and terrific value. Highly recommended.

      A magnificent day of exploration
      What a wonderful day! Tommy was an excellent tour guide and provided us with a rich telling of Irish history and folklore. The ride on the bus is a bit bumpy, but did not delay us. The island along with the exploring of the cliffs is magnificent and I would recommend this tour to anyone looking for a real day of adventure.

      Beautiful day visiting Moher Cliffs
      Tommy was a great driver/guide. He explained how Ireland became a country, and the most important wars/conflicts that occurred in the island. He made the long trip was not boring at all. We could enjoy the beautiful landscapes during the trip, and understand why Ireland is called the "Emerald island". We were really lucky as the weather was also amazing. The stay in Inisheer was worth it. It's a small island, but the scenery is unique. During our way back to the "big island", we passed close to the Moher Cliffs, and the view is incredible. It was a good choice. Tommy took us to visit the Moher Cliffs too. The sight from there astonishing. I recommend this day trip to visit the Moher Cliffs.

      Tommy was a fantastic guide. The Aran Island guide (Breagh?) that we took as an extra was fantastic too. It called for 95% rain. We did get wet, but the meal at the pub warmed us up. I would recommend this tour! 10 out of 10

      Wonderful tour, fantastic tour guide. If you catch the bus going up to the garden, walk down if the line is long to get more time. Food at the Abbey was excellent and it was the best gift shop we had been to.

      Guide was Nonstop talk for hours!
      Dave, the tour guide negatively impacted an otherwise perfect tour. He was nonstop talk about things that had nothing to do with the trip. Another guest asked him to stop the constant loud chatter but it did no good. It was so loud we couldn’t even talk to our seat mate and he didn’t let up for hours! He even talked over the music he was playing! He should just stick to the tour content and not comment on every sheep and making fun of every person walking by. We couldn’t wait to get off the bus.

      Excellent Day
      What an absolutely wonderful day! Learned so much history from coach bus driver. Three choices on Inis Oirr Island, we took the mini bus and learned even more. Then it was off to the cliffs of Moher. Absolutely breathtaking.

      Beautiful Ireland Day Trip
      We were very pleased with beautiful, breathtaking and well-paced day trip from Galway to three distinctive destinations. Our bus was comfortable and our driver/tour guide, Tommy, was top notch! He weaved great information, history, and good humor throughout the day. Ample time was given at Cong and Kylemore Abbey to explore on our own. The drive though the Connemara Mountains was incredible and we were given time to get out and take scenic photos. The only drawback (but no fault of the operator, who was always crystal clear with the time to return to the bus after each stop), was four women who failed to return to the bus on time at the Abbey and kept everyone waiting a half hour to depart back to Galway. I would like to mention that Tommy kept his calm demeanor and professionalism while getting the women back to the bus. The behavior and rudeness of others is hard to control but we cannot fault the operator. We highly recommend this enchanting day trip and will book another Viator excursion in our future travels!

      Nice tour but could have be better
      The landscape was amazing, I would have spent more time in connemara which is full of good place for walk than the Kylemore Abbey. I find really no sense have a tour where I have to pay the visit at the Kylemore Abbey, should be included or the visitor should have the choice to do something else while the others are there.

    My mom came to visit and this was the perfect thing to do. The driver, JP, was very witty and thanks to him being from the area, he knew very much about everything and gave us very interesting facts and his driving was impeccable, especially with those narrow roads! He was extremely friendly and helpful and had great time management and we even did an extra surprise stop. I was great 12/10 would do again! (:

    Had an absolutely brilliant tour with Gary last Wednesday to the Burren and the Cliffs of Moher. Gary was an absolute legend keeping the bus on the windy roads while constantly giving everyone a brilliant guided tour. He was so accommodating to all the tourists on board & even managed to get us a cruise around the bottom of the Cliffs due to the calm waters on a beautiful sunny day which isn't common in Ireland! Would 100% recommend!

    Eamonn was our guide and driver for the day. He gave us 8,000 years of history in an afternoon and had us laughing much of the time as well. All the stops were terrific and the Cliffs of Moher alone would’ve made this tour worth it. Nice to be guided along the drive, taking scenic routes and learning about the sights and then have the opportunity to explore them at your own pace during the stops.

    Anthony was absolutely lovely! We ultimately had a great time.

    I'm torn between 4 and 5 stars - go into this knowing it is a very touristy activity, you will be on a bus for *hours*, and most of the stops are pretty short, about 15 minutes except for the cliffs. Lunch is also quick affair - we were all crammed together at tables in a small pub with limited, very heavy menu options that will put you to sleep for the rest of the trip. If you're vegan, pack your own lunch. All in all a great way to visit the cliffs without managing your own transportation as long as you go in with the right expectations.

    This trip was by far the worst trip / booking we’ve done in the last few years. The tour operator should never allow a large school block booking and put a group that size with every day locals and tourists taking this trip. We got bunched between the entire school group. They wouldn’t stop talking, listening to videos / their phone, and their chaperone did nothing to help. We missed nearly the whole “tour” component where John was telling us about various events, cities, history, etc (and it’s a shame, as he was engaging and very knowledgeable). In addition, at each stop, the students were smoking cigarettes and every time we came back on the bus we were encompassed by cigarette smoke. The whole experience made enjoying the cliffs and our other stops along the journey near impossible to enjoy. I’d reiterate, the tour operator should never allow these bookings again. Large groups (of students especially) should need to book a private tour. I wouldn’t recommend this trip to anyone.

    Tour company apparently miscounted and some of us were stuck on a short bus instead of the coach. As a result we had to waste a half hour wandering around a gas station parking lot while waiting for everyone to use the single bathroom there. Guide was nice, but was totally lackadisical on time (often forgetting to say how long we would be at a stop unless specifically asked, and even then only giving ranges) and did nothing to prevent several selfish members of the group from abusing those timeframes and continually returning late. So we ended up arriving back to Galway far later than the main group, even though we left first.

    This trip was absolutely amazing! Our guide was great and very knowledgeable. His driving was excellent, was worried about getting car sick because of the roads and us being on a bus but no one in our party got sick. We had plenty of time at the Cliffs as well as the other stops. I was very impressed with the lunch service as it was quick, effective, and delicious. I highly recommend booking this tour if you are wanting to see the Cliffs as well as some other sites in the Ireland country side. Also - thank you to the Galway Tour Company and our driver for picking us up in Oranmore, we greatly appreciated that touch!

    Such a great day! We were super blessed with the weather (I got sunburnt!)
    This is totally worth it, from all the sites you see, to the time you have at each - perfect- and then the custom made soundtrack Dave made for each part of the journey. Dave was super knowledgeable about the area and filled with historical knowledge and personal stories.
    Would totally recommend!

    What a wonderful trip. It's thanks to the tour drivers that you get to appreciate vivid details of Irish culture. The soul enriching stories that these heartwarming men tell you will certainly colour your day.

    You'll be taken to some of the most beautiful and lush places in Ireland. It's certainly worth the time and effort. I've personally done the Conemara and the Cliffs of Moher tour, and I am glad that I did. Conemara's (Connemara) Beauty is unparalleled, enwrapped in the passion that is found within the proud Irish culture, I am glad to see such a place surviving on traditions that have been passed down through generations.
    The dramatic Lovestory of the Kylemore Abbey is something you'll be drawn in by. And you can taste it as you walk through their gardens and through the old estate.
    The cliffs of Mother are a trip in and of itself. The harsh beauty that you'll find accompanied by many a great story. Honestly my heart was stirred. I did not think I could enjoy the beauty of Ireland as much as I did.

    Gary, you spin a great story. Honestly I'm impressed by your storytelling ability. I hope you get to connect and entertain people for many years to come. Your high energy got people excited and got them to interact with each other. Which really was a delight to experience.

    Mike, I really enjoyed your paced and interactive tour. It made it easy to translate to those that didn't speak the language and you were incredibly patient and caring.

    Patrick was such a great tour guide! We had an amazing day even with totally crazy weather! Patrick navigated the tiny roads like a pro, had answers to so many questions and pointed out such important facts about irish history along the way. We felt like we really got to see so much of the Burren and the baby cliffs were an extra special stop. I'd recommend this to any friends who don't want to drive in Ireland or who want great local knowledge about the area
