          Special Memories!!
          If you're interested in a private tour of Ireland don't hesitate to book with Mary.  In June my friend and I were blessed to spend 6 days with Mary exploring Ireland.  She knew the best scenery routes; cool places to visit; was attentive in picking up on our interest; and genuinely wanted us to have a good time.  We experienced and learned so much more than we would have on a big bus tour or traveling on our own.  Mary helped make some very special memories!

          Best decision to treat ourselves with private tour
          My cousin & I had the most amazing day with Mary on her West Cork Trip- incredible rural scenery, many lovely stops along the way, time to walk a bit, shop, best lunch at Jack's Restaurant- food and the wonderful feeling inside. It rained a bit which didn't matter at all. We highly recommend and would definitely contact her again. Rather than a star review, just to say, her historical knowledge, choice of stops and wonderful personality made us feel we had made a friend.

          Ring of Kerry Family tour
          Had a full day tour of the Ring of Kerry tailored to our family's interests. Mary understood the age of our child and took into account: a good time for breaks, snacks, lunch, and getting some energy out at the beach. Our child really warmed up to her kind personality. This was the best value and way to see the Ring of Kerry. The pace was not rushed. We got to see roads/sites that were not seen by the buses. And, it was nice to relax and not worry about driving the roads (narrow spots, curves, horses, bicyclists, etc). We would enthusiastically recommend Mary!

          Fabulous experience all around!
          What a delightful experience! Ray was an excellent historian and tour guide. We traveled from Killarney to the Cliffs of Moher and through The Burren on our way to Galway. Ray desribed sites and history all along the way and answered our many questions as first timers in the Republic. Highly recommend his tours to all!

          The Best!
          If I could leave ten stars, I would. Hiring Mary and Ray for four days of touring was the single best decision we made in planning our bucket list trip to Ireland! We spent three days with Mary and one with Ray, and each day was spectacular. Not only did we see things we never would have found on our own, but their knowledge of history, customs and culture added so much to the things we saw. They were professional, but so warm and friendly, helpful, reliable and fun, and we also appreciated their advice on pubs, restaurants, shopping, etc. I cannot recommend Walk With Me Tours enough - they took our trip to the next level! Thank you so much Ray and Mary!

          Great day tour of the Burren National Park and Cliffs of Moher!
          Mary Walsh did an excellent job from start to finish in a full day! She picked up our group of three at our hotel and took us to the Burren National Park from Killarney by way of Adare, Limerick, and Ennis. One of three stops in the Burren featured Poulnabrone, a Neolithic tomb portal built around 6000 years ago. Outstanding pear tart and coffee at the Burren Perfumery, then on to the Cliffs of Moher. Nice lunch at Vaughan’s Pub near the cliffs, then back to Killarney. Mary expertly pointed out all the highlights on the way while masterfully handling her comfortable Mercedes sedan. I recommend this experience to anyone!

          Best day of our whole trip to Ireland
          I would give 10 out of 5 stars if possible! We did the Valentia, Ring of Kerry and Skellig Ring tour. We had only one day in Killarney and this was absolutely the best way to spend it. Ray provided us with a recommended itinerary, taking us to the most spectacular sights and also to places off the beaten path. He was also very responsive to requests for certain stops and even added extra time into the end of our tour to visit Killarney National Park. He was so knowledgeable, generous and warm, sharing both historical facts and personal knowledge about the area. We only wish we had time for more days of touring with Ray! This was by far the best day of our week in Ireland. Seeing the sights is one thing, but having Ray to give them context added immense value to our trip. Choosing a private tour with Ray was the best money we could have spent our whole trip.

          Great daytrip from Killarney to Dingle
          We had the good fortune of booking Mary for a tour that took us from Killarney to Dingle Ferry. She promptly picked us up at our scheduled time and drove us to our stops of Crag Cave and Cliffs of Moher. We made such good time, we were allowed a bit extra time at the Cliffs before being dropped off at the Dingle Ferry to the Aran Islands. Mary provided wonderful commentary about the area and a nice place where we could grab a bite to eat for lunch. Mary was absolutely great with my 6 year old Sarah, pointing out lots of things for her to see! This was a great way to get from Killarney to Dingle without missing a day of sight seeing to travel, as there were no direct trains or buses that I could find. Mary's car was spotless and she was a very careful and cautious driver.

          Brilliant WalkWithMe Experience
          Our return trip to Killarney NP allowed us to book a walk with Ray Walsh which was just as fun, informative and beautiful as during our previous visit. If TripAdvisor offered 10 stars the WalkWithMe experience would be worth that and more. Ray shares an Amazing depth of knowledge ranging from local history, Ireland’s political history, to geography, geology and ecosystems encountered along our walk. Just strenuous enough for a couple of 70 year olds truly enjoying Ireland in wonderfully gracious good company.

          Personalized Genealogical Tour
          Part of our family's recent trip to Ireland was to see that lands my ancestors left when they emigrated to the United States. Ray put together a wonderful day-long tour for us of the few sights we knew we wanted to visit. He even did his own research of the area to try and help us out a bit more. Because of his long history around the county, he was also able to reach out to friends in order to put us in contact with others who might be able to help us out with our own research. We had a nice lunch at a nice diner and were able to grab a drink at the Alley Bar thanks to recommendations from his friends. Ray was just all around wonderful! He was so personable, fun, and knowledgeable. I am so glad to have found Ray.

          Stress Free Driving Tour of the Ring of Kerry
          I highly recommend booking Mary of Walk with Me Tours for your time in Killarney. As my husband and I planned for our trip, which included watching some youtube experiences of The Ring of Kerry drive, it was determined that he would not see a thing as a Canadian driver! Enter, Mary and Walk with Me Tours. Mary customized our journey for The Ring of Kerry and was highly communicative and reliable from inquiry through to the end of our experience. The ride was luxurious, safe, every view and stop taken was spectacular. Mary was perceptive and sensitive to who we were and our travel style. She is professional, truly knows and loves the history of Killarney, and loves what she does. It was great to be able to return at the end of our day stress-free because Mary was at the wheel! Should we return to the area some day, we'll be contacting Mary for even more experiences.

          Killarney NP Walking Tour
          Extraordinary walking tour in Muckross National Park with Ray Walsh. Tailored to our fitness level but with enough of a challenge to allow for a sense of accomplishment upon completion. Wonderful guide shared a wealth of local and national history to help us appreciate the history of everything we saw or visited. Mr Walsh, 3rd generation (retired) Police Oficer we could not have been in safer or more considerate hands. Wonderful guidance, wonderful tour, wonderful conversation including helpful recommendations all made for an absolutely perfect day!

          The best
          Ray was by far one of the best tour guides we have ever had. We added a fourth person to our Ring of Kerry tour so Mary passed us on to Ray who drove our family around in a comfortable mini van. His knowledge of history and his anecdotes about people were wonderful. The day was filled with prehistoric tetrapods, medieval forts, learning about peat, castle ruins, and incredible Irish natural beauty. We were sad to leave Killarney but thanks to Ray, we look forward to returning to learn more.

        Touring with Mary was like touring with an old family friend. We were greeted with a wide smile and bid farewell with a warm hug at the end of 4 days together.

        Mary customized our adventure and ensured we saw the best of everything in our travels. The Jaunting Car tour, holding and feeding baby lambs were true highlights. She was attentive to our rhythm, knew everyone we passed and made excellent recommendations everywhere along the way.

        Equally impressive was the unplanned, and serendipitous timings, insights marrying the best of everything. She was able to pair our interests with special and unplanned stops along the way.

        Mary’s stories, knowledge and timing made the trip truly spectacular.

        My family hired Mary and Ray for three days of tours in western Ireland. I had used Mary before, and would highly recommend their services. They are very charming and knowledgeable hosts; their vehicles are impeccably clean; they are prompt and will tailor your tours to meet your requests. We had tours of the cliffs of Moher, the Dingle peninsula and the rock of Cashel. Their lunch recommendations were spot on, and they are conscientious of your safety and comfort at all times. I will definitely recommend them to any tourists and will use them again in the future.

        The Dingle Penninsula tour was the absolute highlight of our trip to Ireland and the natural beauty of the country and rich history was enhanced greatly but the knowledge and infectious charm of our guide Ray Walsh. He tailored the experience to meet our needs which included side excursions the introduced my sons to the Irish sport of hurling and helped me track down our family homestead. Ray was as absolute gentleman and we have been regaling our family and friends with his wit and wisdom from the moment we arrived home. I cannot recommend him more highly!

        We had been driving in circles around Ireland (literally) and decided to have Mary take the wheel for the day to get us on the straight and narrow. Plus we had lots of questions. Mary had all the answers and more. She got us to the baby lambs, the wool shop and the best fish and chips in Dingle. Mary is brilliant and we had a grand time. Skip the tour bud and let Mary be your guide.

        My daughter, grandson and I spent the day with Ray on a private Dingle Peninsula tour. What an amazing day. Ray knew the area and the history which made the experience special. We saw all the sites that we anticipated and my daughter and grandson had time to enjoy the aquarium in Dingle. Ray's flexibility was very welcome. Besides the special time at the aquarium the stop to feed lambs was special. The vehicle was comfortable and clean and the Slea Head drive was absolutely beautiful. I can't recommend this company enough. Thanks for a great day.

        My husband and I spent two days with Ray touring the Dingle Peninsula, towns and seaside. Ray's knowledge of the local history and all the sites gave us a wonderful feel of Ireland by the sea and local customs. His spacious van was comfortable and he amazed us by keeping it spotlessly clean - we were grateful to have sunny, warm days that made excellent photography. I would encourage anyone interested in this area to contact Ray for an excellent adventure.

        Our family of 4 spent two days with Ray exploring the Irish countryside. We absolutely loved being with him. He's professional, funny, friendly (every town we went to seemed to be filled with people Ray knows), knowledgeable, and just a true joy to be with. We not only saw amazing scenery, we learned a LOT about Irish history and culture at the same time. Ray customized every minute of our time with him to make sure we got exactly what we wanted -- don't hesitate to ask him how to make the most off your time in this amazing country! (Just beware if you ask him to put together a hike for you -- he will make sure you get your exercise on those hills!!) If you're looking for someone to show you the best of this part of Ireland (and maybe even get a hurling lesson . . . .), you cannot go wrong. :)

        Our family of 4 was looking for a private tour of the Dingle Peninsula and Walk with me did not disappoint. Ray is super knowledgeable about the area, as well as all of Ireland and her rich history. We were glad to leave the left-side-of-the-road driving to someone else, and he was ready to answer any and all questions we had -- even including about the big Irish football playoff game everyone in the area was watching. What a great insight to Ireland -- so much better and more personal than being part of a big bus tour!

        My friend and I had Mary's services for three lovely, adventurous days. She was incredibly accommodating, kind, informative, and utterly professional. Also fun! She made special arrangements to get us to meet relatives in a remote village and see a family-relevant sight off the beaten track, as well as complete Dingle Peninsula and Cliffs of Mohrer tours. She expertly navigated EXTREMELY narrow country roads, causing us to mention numerous times how glad we were to not be driving ourselves! Can't recommend her highly enough.
