      The best way to see the Cliffs of Moher and beautiful County Claire!
      Just a short drive from where we stayed in Galway, Alan picked us up at Eyre Square and took us to a wonderful day through the countryside with the chance to see the Burren and little towns on our way to the famous cliffs… Once there, they do a great job at bringing the geographical feature to life and taking beautiful pictures which are sure to be on your next Christmas card! My last trip to the Cliffs was 2001 before the center was built so we had a real treat! Thanks Alan :)

      Picture perfect paradise
      David and Paul were superb hosts and a wonderful representation of Irish tourism. They were polite, friendly to all and relaxed and really ensured each person was enjoying their trip. There was a mixture of ages and nationalities aboard and without a doubt everyone was made feel welcome, special and highly entertained. The kids were allowed to steer the boat. A French student sang for us. The tour of Inchagoill Island was very informative. Such a beautiful place of serenity. David was a fountain of knowledge from start to finish. Cong and Ashford Castle looked stunning. Well done to all who are involved in keeping every place spotlessly clean and looking so fab. Thanks again to David and Paul for a lovely day. Highly recommend them for all ages.

      Very unprofessional service and poor quality bikes. Use another company!
      Once we arrived the staff were incredibly rude once they discovered we had used a third party. They said we’d paid double and they looked after people who had booked direct ahead of us. The bikes are a very poor quality. Use another company as we saw a total of 4 companies there.

      Fun in Lisdoonvarna !!
      We had a great time on the tour. The owner and his assistants were great. I would recommend a little experience with riding on the 2 hour tour but the owner and guides will be with you the entire time ensuring you have a great experience.

      Well worth it! We
      This was a great way to see the cliffs and our bus driver did an excellent job entertaining and enlightening us on the drive. We rode in the horse cart on the island which was also well worth it and ate a bite in the island’s pub which was so memorable.

      A great way to see the sights.
      A great way to see the park. My daughter and I booked the experience and I'm so glad that we did. Although it was a little bit pricey, it was money well spent. We saw loads of the park while ride horses for the first time, what could be better. The instructors were excellent and really knowledgeable about the area.

      Rafting the upper Sac with Jack
      My wife and I recently spent a couple of days rafting with Jack Trout on the upper Sacramento River. The rafting experience was great and the fishing was fun. So different to our lake fishing in Tasmania. Jack was great, the fishing was fun. Lots of beautiful fit rainbows. Staggering on the rocks in the Mcleod on day three was fun. Big fish in the pools but a bit beyond me! If you get to fish with Jack you should. Deer, squirrels and rainbows. People talk about the bears, we saw none! Must go back for more...

      Wow! Wow! and Wow!
      We had the best time! Gabriel was amazing, the tour was amazing, the goats were amazing. My family 12 year old triplets, 16 year old and Mom and Dad had the best time with Gabriel. He was kind and knowledgeable. The tour was perfect, the goats were the best!!!!!! The cheese is to die for. If we ever come back we would do this in a heart beat. Thank you Gabriel for being so amazing to my family, you gave them a core memory and I will forever be in your debt.

      No-show Vendor
      Vendor was a NO-SHOW. After confirming twice I showed up at the shop, waited 25 minutes and phoned the number twice. Never answered, never showed up. Fortunately Westport Bike Hire was just down the road and they rented us great bikes.

      Wild Atlantic Way tour - fantastic!
      Gerry was our tour guide and he was absolutely the best. Loved his jokes, storytelling and the information he provided on the various sites. The tour was a really full day including a trip to Inisheer by the ferry and a view from the water of the Cliffs of Moher.

      VENDER NO SHOW
      The vender was a NO SHOW. Repeated attempts to contact. Fortunately was able ro hire an excellent e-bike from Westport Cycles and had nice ride along trail. Newport to Westport section is not well marked and much on the busy road.

      Aran Island is fun with shopping for their handmade gifts
      This tour was great. Aran Island was fantastic and you can visit the few shops on Aran Island that make the Aran sweaters/socks/blankets etc. It was fun to walk around the island, grab a cup of coffee and rhubarb/strawberry cobbler (yum); the residents that staff the small shops and make the products were friendly, nice and fun to visit with. The Cliffs of Moher were impressive and it ha a wonderful gift shop with museum like section that was very interesting. Lots of walking up the hills but the steps and walkways were nice and the pictures you get are amazing. Aran Island also has horse drawn carriages you can rent/ride in; as well as bikes you can rent or small vehicles for hire to take you up to the castle

    We were 7 mins late for set up. As we reached the gate they we’re leaving at 5 mins before advertised! So if they hadn’t left earlier there might have been a possibility of joining.
    Lady in charge said there was nothing she could do. We missed set up and there wasn’t a possibility of rebooking in, as they were busy. Not her fault.
    I looked for a partial refund off provider but was refused, € 170 down I would have accepted a partial but alas no lee way!!

    Hi Mary, thanks for reminding everyone who wants to take this fantastic 1 hour horse ride to arrive ahead of time-we especially ask you on our voucher/ticket you get when you book, to arrive 30 mins before start time, as it takes time to check everyone in and gear everyone up on the horses before we leave. As it is a group ride, the ride will leave promptly and not wait for late comers, as it affects the ride for the rest of the group. No refunds for late comers! as it is your responsibility to arrive on time!

    Amazing ride with competent and lovely staff. Very good with young and inexperienced riders. Love walking through the ocean at low tide and seeing Croagh Patrick Mountain in the distance. Stunning!

    This was my daughter’s idea after we rode in Wicklow. We stayed at the Castlecourt and grabbed a cab out there.

    The family is wonderful and the horses are all well tempered. There were two children, 6, and 4 in our group, and they did splendidly. We rode up a road and into the water at low tide. We spotted a couple of seals.

    We’d definitely do it again.
