We did a week long trip all around Ireland, and this tour was definitely a highlight. We had a group of four and were joined by two others in the spacious van. The small group dynamic was great for us, as it felt like a personal tour. John was by far the best tour guide we had out of all the tours on our vacation. He has so much knowledge ranging from history, agriculture, sports, politics, and more. He was able to answer all the questions we had, and was very friendly. Donegal county has some beautiful views including beaches, farms, and of course the Slieve League cliffs if the weather is good enough. But this tour is worth it even if that particular view isn't available on the day. The whole experience exceeded expectations, and I would recommend this to anyone who wants to experience some of the less traveled areas of this beautiful country.

My husband and I traveled to Donegal to see the sites and of course one of the major ones was Slieve League, unfortunately there was ice and hail that day (2/26), and our hotel recommended that we not make the drive due to possible icy road conditions. We were disappointed but made the best of it and walked around town on icy sidewalks shopping and visiting the sites in town. We eventually made our way to the Visitor Center and that was when our luck changed🍀.We told the woman at the center of our disappointment and that was when she recommended John McGroary, she made the call to John and he was at the center within 20 minutes! John was knowledgeable about the history of Ireland, Gaelic language, Folklore and history of the towns we drove through. We were thankful to have John drive so that my husband could enjoy the scenery too...not only having to drive on the opposite side of the road, the roads are very narrow the closer you get to the top. The views were breathtaking!!! On the way back down we stopped at the fishing town of Killybegs and a beach. John is a great tour guide and is enthusiastic about the Ireland he loves. We were so happy to have toured with John as he has made our trip to Ireland memorable and extra special!

We had a wonderful time this past fall with John. We had a limited amount of time to see as much of the country as possible. John helped us make the vacation magical. We appreciated his knowledge, promptness and friendly nature. He exceeded all expectations. We highly recommend his tour.

This private tour was an unexpected and last-minute plan activity while we were staying in Donegal town. It was a great experience, John brought us to some hidden gems around Donegal. He was kind, fun and shared with us a lot of knowledge and interesting stories about Ireland. I felt so lucky we had the opportunity to do it, I won't forget this day and I would strongly recommended this tour to anyone going up in the North of Ireland!
