1. You won't get lost. 2. If you're American, you won't have to drive on the wrong side car and on the wrong side of the road. 3. No one will miss viewing the beautiful scenery and sights because of having to watch the road. 4. No one will miss viewing the scenery and sights because of having to pay attention to the map. 5. Everyone in your party will be able to relax and enjoy the tour. 6. You'll be able to visit the places you want and spend as much time at each as you like. 7. If you're lucky enough to have Elva as your driver/guide, you'll find her very knowledgeable because she's spent her whole life in the area. 8.Elva is fun to be with, thoughtful and eager to please. 9. If you enjoy taking photos, Elva knows all the special places to stop. 10. You'll travel very comfortably in Elva's beautiful new BMW SUV.

We had an amazing time driving around the Connemara area with Darren. He was informative and entertaining, a perfect mix. He suggested some stops that were more impressive than a few of the places that I had picked out. We are so lucky to have gotten Darren for our driver and guide. I also love that this company does not stick to a strict schedule. There is a lot of flexibility in what to see, including our suggestions with amazing suggestions by our guide.

I did two full day tours, the ultimate Burren and the ultimate Connemara, with Elva. I had an amazing time. Elva was fun, knowledgeable and designs the tours around your interests. The Burren tour highlights included Poulnabrone Dolmen, Caherconnell Fort, Kilfenora Church & celtic crosses, the Burren, Black Head Drive, the Cliffs of Moher and visits to an artisanal chocolate and cheese manufacturers. The landscape was spectacular and lunch in a Doolin pub was excellent. The Connemara tour also had highlights, such as Kylemore Abbey, Inagh Valley, Leeane and Killary Harbour, but the focus is primarily the wild beautiful scenery. Elva also gave me very helpful suggestions for my trip to the Aran Islands. Thank you Elva for two very memorable days.

Ireland West provided us a fantastic tour of The Connemara area in beautiful western Ireland. Our driver, Patrick, met us promptly at our apartment, and took us for a wonderful ride in a very comfortable small van and explained the history and details of this breathtaking countryside. We had indicated places we wanted to see and he customized the time and locations for us. He even recommended an awesome restaurant for lunch which we thoroughly enjoyed. We would utilize Ireland West again should we have the opportunity to visit.

My wife and I decided to book a private tour with Jim after doing research. We definitely did not want to content with the crowds at specific tourist areas nor did we want to take a Coach. Jim showed us incredible sights and have us the chance to sample local cheese and fudge. We saw the Cliffs of Moher from a different location than most Coach tours which really enhanced the whole experience. His ability to answer basically every question we had was uncanny and we could not have asked for a better day. I would highly recommend Jim to anyone!
