We contacted Overland Ireland to see if they could help us out at the very last minute with a custom private tour for our honeymoon. The trip was to take place after the season had already ended, with guides already home for the winter and many attractions already closed. We had specific dates that couldn’t budge and a specific budget in mind, and two of our previous trips had been canceled due to COVID. Overland Ireland came through in spades! Reinier was incredibly helpful, quickly crafting a trip for us that included lodging upgrades throughout, as well as various adjustments due to the time of year we were traveling. He was very easy to work with via email, and his responses were timely and informative. We were nervous when we arrived in Ireland to begin our adventure. But our guide, Pat, quickly put our minds at ease. It was the first time for all of us doing a private guided tour for just two people, but by the end of the trip I think we all agreed that it had been a blast. Pat was knowledgeable, kind, friendly, funny, considerate, and extraordinarily helpful at all times. Even when little things went wrong (due to external providers making small mistakes), he was quick to jump on it and get things working for us. He was also extremely flexible, letting us dictate the parameters and even timings to a certain extent. He even redesigned the final day of our trip completely on the fly in order to satisfy a certain Guinness craving! Reinier was also flexible, extending our stay both before and after in Dublin, as well as arranging drivers for us to and from the airport. Everything was taken care of from start to finish, and Pat even followed up with us during our journey home and afterwards. We felt safe throughout our trip, with COVID precautions followed quite extensively (though less so in Northern Ireland). We brought our own COVID tests with us for the return trip (as required by the US), but Pat was also willing to help us out with scheduling those if needed. We truly enjoyed our journey with Overland Ireland. As a small, local company, they are extremely well-organized, quick to action, and personable. They can handle everything from the less-expensive 16-person tours all the way up to our rather high-end 10-day honeymoon, complete with ravishing upgraded lodgings (Ashford Castle and Hayfield Manor particularly stood out), even arranging dining options ranging from take away toasties to pub grub to seats at a very hard to get into Michelin Star restaurant. Whatever your budget and whatever your style, Overland Ireland has you covered! Just get ready to get a bit wet and muddy, and get your camera out for quite possibly some of the most breathtaking scenery you’ll ever lay eyes on.

This Overland Ireland Tour was simply fabulous. The food, the transportation, accommodations and our wonderful guide Finn, made this an epic trip of a lifetime. As we traveled through the countryside, Finn introduced us to the wonderful history of Ireland and its people, allowing us to really feel the Irish experience. There's so much to do here, so much to see, and so much to enjoy. The Irish are wonderful, laughing, smiles, helpful, and plenty of joking around. I cant think of a better way to see this wonderful country than with Overland Ireland - I love the small group experience, makes it much more intimate and enjoyable. Thank you Finn and Overland Ireland for such a wonderful experience!!

Spent a week touring Ireland (South). Went to really off the tourist trail places, many back roads, but still stayed in very nice hotels. And still hit many attractions. Included 1/2 day kayaking and saw porpoise. Meals combination of take-out, diners and pubs. Did do a bit of walking, though, Highly recommend them.

I can't say enough about this tour company. We had a small intimate group. Inspire of cancellations (TY COVID), they proceeded with the tour. They picked a variety of spots to see. The guide, Finn, was fantastic. Answered all my questions and I feel sometimes like I am the queen of questions. Finn balanced the needs of the group superbly. I was sorry when it ended. We had some options during the tour. The Castle was the best! West Kerry Sheep Dog demonstrations actually was even better.

There are so many great times on this tour. Our guide, Finn from Overland Ireland was exceptional!! From The Titanic, Blarney Castle, Skellig Michael (where some of Star Wars was filmed) to The Cliffs of Moher, the Aran Islands and Kylemore Abbey. It was a full week from early morning until late in the evening. Finn got us great restaurants and hotels. It was a trip I will never forget. I’m 71 and my sister is 81 and Finn had us climbing and walking where we never thought we could and it was absolutely wonderful. I would recommend Finn and Overland Ireland to anyone wanting an unforgettable experience.
