We booked Donal for our sisters' trip to Galway, spending two laughter-filled days traveling to the Cliffs and the Burren, with a last-minute side trip to track down our Irish ancestors; then to Connemara and the spectacular Kylemore Abbey and lunch in Clifden. Donal was accommodating, knowledgeable and flexible to the nth degree, which we so appreciated. We would 100 percent travel with Donal when we return to Ireland.

This was an exceptional experience. I have taken many tours before, but I was sincerely impressed by Donal’s knowledge and keen insights into the treasures of Ireland. He is a very kind, funny, and thoughtful person and I would recommend his touring company without hesitation.

Our Sister Trip to Galway was made even more special under Donal's warm and knowledgeable guidance! He is a superb guide being a Galwegian and shares all many gems of the history of the area. He is super flexible when it comes to building full-day itineraries. He could sense our enthusiasm for the ever-changing topography and made sure to take as many different routes as possible so we could soak it all in! In addition to showing us hidden abbeys and castles (we were the only visitors to the most spectacular castle), Donal also led us to two great restaurants for lunch that we would've never found on our own! And, the laughter! We Sisters can spin a yarn and Donal picked that up from the start! Saying goodbye after two days touring with Donal felt like saying goodbye to a long-lost friend!

What a grand day we had with Donal as our tour guide! He arrived at 9:00 sharp, welcoming us to Ireland and truly seeming to care about our experience here. He was full of information about the history of his country as well as the locations we visited and the landscape we passed. Driving the Connemara peninsula with Donal was like going for a ride with an old friend. It was a long, full day, but I would have welcomed more!

It took no time at all to know that our daylong tour was going to be everything we hoped for and more. Confident, friendly, knowledgable and a pleasure to spend a day with, Donal Lydon was the perfect host/guide for a day visiiting sites around and inside Connemara National Park, Clifden, and all the way
back to Galway by the coast roads.I can't imagine that anyone could do a better job. A great value.

Donal planned a perfect day for us touring Clare county which included the Burren, Cliffs of Moher, a sheep dog demonstration, and a fabulous lunch at Monks. He was friendly, knowledgable, punctual and easy to talk with. I highly recommend Donal and his company's services.

Donal was just the best tour guide - our family of 10 became a family of 11 - Donal made us feel at ease as Ireland opened up to American tourists. As we traveled the back roads of Southern Ireland, Donal would give us the history of different sights and landmarks. Always there helping to make reservations for restaurants, giving us tips as to where to eat and what to see and do in each of the towns and cities we stopped at. He is warm and funny, kind, very helpful with our travel. Please consider Donal Lydon for your next trip to Ireland, you will love him as much as we do.

Donal exceeded all expectations! We hired Donal to tour our family of 10 around Southwest Ireland for 5 days just after Ireland started allowed visitors from the US. With many unknowns, he made us feel very comfortable, welcomed, and he was excited to show us his country in which he did an amazing job! His 16 passenger Mercedes Sprinter van was spotless, well taken care of, and very comfortable for all. By the end of the 5 days he felt like family! If you are looking for an experienced driver (not once did we feel nervous with the hilly and windy roads), kind, reliable, and knowledgable guide, Donal is your guy!

Donal is a warm and engaging gentleman. He is very informative. He listened to our interests and tailor made a trip across Ireland for our family. He clearly takes great pride in his work and strives to exceed expectations.

We had a week packed with a lot to see and do. Donal got us everywhere on our itinerary and then some. He was very knowledgeable and extremely friendly & funny. He started as our guide and became a friend. I cannot say enough about our wonderful trip and how great Donal was. I am looking forward to returning to Ireland and having Donal be our guide again.
