Overview
Get in touch with a side of Ireland you won’t experience on the busy streets of Dublin with this full day tour into the Irish countryside. In the morning, head to the northern border for an outdoors adventure: kayak to an ancient ruin, hike across the mountains or go rock-climbing in County Cavan. No experience is needed for these adventures – enjoy plenty of personalized coaching from your guides on this private tour. Afterward, head to a classic Irish pub for a pint and some traditional folk-singing.

Thanks to our amazing local tour guide Marcus ,who showed us beautiful and unique sites: from breathtaking views to kayaking activity, Whiskey distillery, Filming locations from “Game of Thrones”, Irish folklore and history and local music and an amazing hospitality at Marcus house and his family, which was unforgettable evening. Thank you Marcus for being so kind, professional, generous and always with a smile, which made our trip to an amazing and unforgettable adventure. Very recommended.

I went on a trip to Ireland for about 9 days in September-October 2019 as part of a group of young travelers. Marcus was our local guide who was amazing, cordial, with good energies. The favorite part I had on the trip was hearing the local songs that Marcus sang to us that made me very happy, and visiting his backyard where we got food that his family and friend specially prepared for us, beers, soft drinks, desserts and lots and lots of distress! He and his family at the end of the meal played and sang us traditional local songs from Ireland, and international songs we are all familiar with and it was fun to sing together and feel a sense of home and brotherhood. The hospitality in the backyard added a lot to the rest of the trip and it was magical and special. The trip was definitely an extraordinary experience thanks to Marcus, and the staff! I had a lot of fun! Highly recommend Marcus!

I am very happy after having spent 3 days with my daughter, guided by Marcus to get in touch with the very heart of Ireland. Always punctual and well organized with a relaxing and caring feeling. I enjoyed activities, stayed in b&b, and that was ideal to experience the lifestyle of a genuine Irish family in a beautiful house in the country. More than just touring, it was meeting people, feeling hospitality, hearing stories and history of Ireland, and also exchanging facts from my home country. I reccomend it to spend three valuable days with your family.

Two fabulous days in and around Galway, the Cliffs of Moher and an afternoon in the pubs of Doolin. Despite the fact that some of their tours are quite challenging athletically, we are a wee bit older and Marcus let us set a pace that worked for us. I love Trad Irish music and he took us to the best spots and of course is a great singer and storyteller in his own right.
