      Best Dingle and Ring of Kerry tours
      Mossie's knowledge of the history, culture and people of this beautiful country led us to fall in love with the Dingle and Kerry peninsulas. He drove safely on the narrow, breathtaking roads and was sensitive to our mobility needs. He knew the short cuts and made sure we saw all that we wanted to see and more. Mossie was fun and engaging and had the best stories to tell. Mossie's 2 day, all day tours were the best way we could have begun our trip.

      As Good As It Gets
      My wife and I, with another couple who were our trip companions, took each of Mossie's full days tours of the Dingle and Kerry peninsulas. I can't say enough about the quality of the experience. We'd heard about how good Mossie was from my brother. We were not disappointed. The mundane: Mossie's van was impeccably clean and late model. He was mic'd up so the couple in the back could hear his every word. He was on time. He welcomed questions. The exceptional: Mossie's command of Irish history is encyclopedic. His own experience growing up on a subsistence farm on the Dingle peninsula, speaking Gaelic exclusively until his tenure in the Irish Navy, teaching himself English, his world travels, his time as a touring vocalist singing traditional Gaelic ballads, his years as a tour guide all over Ireland, his involvement in the community issues of the day, his extensive contacts all over the island: These collectively give him a a deep well of knowledge to draw from. But delivery is everything, and boy does he deliver. He is sharp witted, quick with a gentle pun or a funny story, likely to break into song or a poem, unafraid to weave the difficult truths of a long Irish history into a hopeful and promising portrayal of the Ireland of today. He is energetic, warm and personable. Our small group came away with far more than we could have expected and an insight into and appreciation of Ireland that we will carry with us. The rest of our time in Ireland was seen in part through eyes trained by Mossie, something we greatly appreciated. Our tours with Mossie were exceptional.

      A Dingle Peninsula tour with highlights, hidden gems, history and humour not to be missed!
      My family had the great pleasure of spending the day with Mossie touring all the wonders that the Dingle Peninsula had to offer. In addition to the points of interest we had on our bucket list, we were able to experience special sites that would have been lost to us without his guidance and will be very special memories for us. Driving the coast is not for the faint of heart so having an expert at the wheel ensured that our whole family were able to soak in all the beauty in true comfort and security. Beyond the gorgeous scenery, we loved learning all about the fascinating history of Ireland. Mossie is a true expert on the heart and soul of Ireland and brought a wealth of knowledge that enriched our holiday and understanding of our historical roots. Our time with Mossie will definitely be one of the greatest highlights of our entire trip and we highly recommend his tour if you want an experience that goes above and beyond tourist attractions in Dingle.

      Fun Filled Day
      My husband and I were very fortunate to find Mossie's Tour. He picked us up at our BnB and we knew immediately upon meeting him it was going to be a great day! He took us to so many spots we never would have found on our own. He had so much knowledge of the area and it was amazing how much we learned with him. He made the tour fun with his interesting stories. I would highly recommend Mossie!

      I'd give Mossie 100 ⭐️'s if I could!
      I just can't say enough about Mossie and our March 26, 2024 Full Day Dingle Peninsula Tour! There were seven of us with ages ranging from 20's to 70's. He's a kind-hearted, informative, funny, accommodating, and engaging man with a fantastic voice! We all felt like he was part of our family by the day's end. Between the stories, the history, the songs and the conversations, Mossie (or his given name, Maurice, as my mom referred to him 😂), really set the bar high! He took us to Conor Pass, Slea Head Drive, the Beehive Huts where we held lambs, Famine Tour, Coumeenole Beach, Dunmore Head Walk, Gallarus Oratory, and Kilmalkedar. We even drove through the little village where he was born. He had a bluetooth headset so we could hear him through the vehicle audio which was a huge bonus for those in the back and/or hard of hearing. He picked us up at the Dingle Benners hotel and on our way back pointed out a few nice restaurants and pubs to go to for great pub food. I can honestly say this day was my absolute favorite of the 10 days in Ireland. I'd love to reserve the Spirit of Ireland tour with his wife Helen when I'm able to get back there. 100% recommend. Thanks Mossie, for a fantastic day!

      Amazing Experience!
      This was our second trip to Ireland in a year. On our first trip, we took tours with Mossie (full day and half day), and on this most recent trip a full day Ring of Kerry tour. Mossie's Tours are by far the best part of our trips. We weren't even sure where we wanted to go, so he had wonderful suggestions. He brings you to places that you would not know of if you were touring on your own, which made it more special. He is so knowledgeable about everything he showed us, and even included personal experiences and stories growing up in Ireland. There was not a question we asked that he couldn't answer, and his sense of humor made the trip even more memorable. The weather was not great on our Ring of Kerry Tour, but he was still able to show us some amazing things, including the Kerry Cliffs, Staigue Fort and Torc Waterfall in Killarney National Park. One suggestion...wear good walking shoes (waterproof if you can!) We would highly recommend Mossie's Tours for anyone visiting the Dingle area.

      Best Tour On The Emerald Island
      This was the best tour experience I’ve ever had. Helen, Mossie’s wife, was incredibly responsive and friendly. Booking was easy. Mossie was on time, vehicle was spotless, and he immediately felt like family. Such a great guy, who is extremely knowledgeable and passionate about his county and his countries history. Not only was the tour amazing, but we had many conversations about the rest of the country. He knows what stops have the best views, which ones to skip, and even took us to some of the map spots. I really can’t say enough good things about it. If you are looking for a private tour, look no further. I will continue to return to Mossie any time we are back on the island. I feel like I have an Irish uncle now.

      Fun & Knowledgeable. A Great Day!
      If there’s a better tour, I’d be amazed. Mossie takes you on a journey that the tour books can’t touch. His knowledge of the Dingle area and Peninsula comes from living there. It’s not prescribed. He talks to you about your interests and then makes sure you have a great time. Even “officiated” at our vows renewal at Kilmalkedar church.

      An amazing half day Dingle tour with Mossie's Tours
      After arriving in Dingle, I contacted Mossie's Tours in the hope of scheduling a last minute half day tour. I had been unsuccessful after several attempts calling local tour companies. Mossie's tour called me back and put together a last minute 3 hour tour to accommodate me. And what a tour it was. I could not have asked for a better tour. As noted in various previous reviews, Mossie was a tour guide extraordinaire. He is not only a complete expert on the Dingle area and history, he takes a personal interest in you and tailors the tour accordingly. In my case, he emphasized taking my wife and I to the most incredibly amazing Dingle sights so that I could photograph them. The locations visited could only be known and accessed by a guide with the thorough knowledge and history of the Dingle area. I can only provide Mossie's tours the highest rating possible and highly recommend booking with Mossie's Tours to anyone visiting the Dingle area. It really is an amazing experience.

      One of the gems of Ireland!
      Touring with Mossie was a rich experience. We saw areas of Dingle that would have been missed, learned history we hadn't known, and visited places you wouldn't otherwise find when travelling on your own. It was a very personal and fun day traveling around the Dingle Peninsula and downtown areas. Mossie is a delightful and knowledgeable guide to spend the day with. We highly encourage it!

      A beautiful tour made memorable by a fantastic guide
      My husband and I were incredibly fortunate to have Helen of Mossie's Tours guide us around the Dingle Peninsula. She exceeded our expectations. Imagine having someone who has a profound connection with the area, guide you through the hills, the meadows, the ancient ruins, the magnificent ocean views and the history of the land. All this while providing details at each stop that only one with deep knowledge of the place can give. Helen transformed the tour from what could have easily been a scripted list of highlights to a truly special journey that made us feel that connection with Dingle. Thank you, Helen.

      Two more members of The Mossie Fan club!
      Our trip around the Dingle Peninsula with Mossie, like so many other reviewers, was most definitely the highlight of our first trip to Ireland. Such a treat!! His warmth and sense of humor were infectious. He greeted us with a big smile and made sure we had everything we needed for a relaxing adventure around the breath-taking Dingle Peninsula. He shared his knowledge of history and stories about growing up on the Peninsula. We visited incredible beaches and he showed us spectacular views of mountains and valleys, waterfalls & streams. As we drove along, Mossie entertained us with his beautiful singing. At the end of the day we met up with his lovely wife Helen. They are Just- great people!! ❤️ Heart felt thank you to Mossie!

      Mossie’s Tours will make your visit to Dingle Peninsula and The Ring of Kerry magical!
      I toured Ireland for two weeks with my son and daughter-in-law. Although it’s difficult to say what I enjoyed the most, two days of touring with Mossie definitely tops the list! We did full day tours of the Dingle Peninsula and the Ring of Kerry. Mossie’s knowledge as well as his sense of humor, stories from his childhood, breaking into song, all combined for two wonderful days! We would never have been able to take advantage of our time there without him.

      Going to Ireland? Book a tour with Mossie now!
      From our initial email inquiry in January until he dropped us off after two days of touring in early May, our time with Mossie was simply fantastic! Touring the Slea Head Peninsula and Ring of Kerry with Mossie was definitely the highlight of our first trip to Ireland. Mossie is a gifted tour guide! He is extremely knowledgeable about his home and shares information in a way that is interesting and even entertaining. What sets him apart from other guides, however, are his “people skills.” He is intuitive and quickly assesses the kind of tour a person wants; he is responsible - you know you can trust him with tour logistics and your safety; and he genuinely seems to enjoy being with you. Mossie is unhurried, engaged, and enthusiastic about his home. When it came time for us to leave, Helen drove us to the train station, and she gave us a warm send-off. What a lovely couple they are! In the future, I will highly recommend Dingle and tours with Mossie and Helen. to my friends who are traveling to Ireland. Heartfelt thanks to both of them for the gift of beautiful memories!

      THE ONLY WAY TO DO IRELAND
      Mossie’s tours is the ONLY way to do Ireland. Mossie and Helen are not only incredible humans, but their knowledge of Ireland is infinite. They will tailor your entire tour based on the things you are interested in- they will tell you anything you want to know about the history of Ireland. Everything is based on your preferences rather than a set itinerary. Words can’t describe how incredible my experience was with them. If I could give them more than 5 stars, I would! BOOK THEM NOW!

    Our tour with Mossie was one of the best experiences our family’s two weeks in Ireland. We were four adults, three sisters and a spouse, and we all thoroughly enjoyed our time with Mossie.

    He drove us around Dingle in a new, very comfortable van. His guidance removed the stress of decision-making and driving… we could all just enjoy our time together, and the beauty and history of the area. Mossie shared openly about his life, giving us great perspective about the history and culture of the peninsula, and about Ireland.

    The time with Mossie passed way too quickly, and included a hike, a walk a beautiful beach, historical sites, and great natural beauty. The price was a bargain for all we gained, and I am very, very glad that we toured with Mossie.

    We had an amazing experience with our tour guide and driver, Helen. I had written a bit about my family history in Dingle and she did research ahead of time to try to help me learn more. Her knowledge of the area’s history was extensive and we enjoyed the many stories she told at every stop. We highly recommend a trip with Mossie’s Tours.

    We had an amazing two weeks in Ireland that included a three day hike along the Kerry Way, but the real highlight was the morning we spent with Helen, of Mossie's Tours, on a private tour of Slea Head, near the town of Dingle. We spent a lovely rainy morning touring ancient Irish sites and Helen was so knowledgable and fun to spend time with that we treasured every minute. She knew so much, and we were able to get a sense of the history of the area too. Highly recommended.

    We enjoyed our 4-hr private tour of the Dingle Peninsula with our driver Helen, immensely! She shared lots of Irish history with us as well as contemporary happenings in the Dingle area. She is quite flexible as to how many and which stops the clients want to make and after the breathtaking ocean views and historic sites she drove us to the second highest peak in Ireland and the highest mountain pass, above Dingle. She saved us from needing to take selfies, as well. You can’t go wrong booking with this excellent local tour firm.

    What a great way to see the Dingle Peninsula! Mossie was such a great tour guide. He was fun and informative. We had a chance to see so many wonderful views, do a short hike, see some beehives, feed some goats, learn about the town of Dingle, listen to Mossie share a beautiful poem and music, and experience Irish hospitality. I would highly recommend his tours.
