This was our third trip to Ireland and on each trip we have booked a private tour to get out of the city and go see historic sites and the beautiful countryside. Brian with Boru Irish Adventures met us at our cruise ship. He was a very pleasant, competent, and knowledgeable tour guide and the air conditioned minivan was roomy and comfortable. We knew in advance some of the places we wanted to visit and he arranged a completely customized tour to accommodate our desires along with some of his own suggestions. This private tour was one of the highlights of our trip. We hope to return to Ireland again and we will definitely contact Brian for another tour.

Myself and two old friends customized the 7-day adventure trip and added a day. Pre-trip communications were excellent, and Brian would often respond same day, even while on other trips. The van was nice with plenty of room for our small group; would be nice to have more regular wifi, but who really needs that while on vacation? We drove a lot of km over the 8 days. Brian got us there safely, and having someone else drive was one of our motivations for going with a guide service. At times, particularly in the evenings, Brian was able to make up time. Tour route: we were all in Ireland for the first time and wanted to sample of all of it: mountains, coasts, historic sites, food, music, culture. We definitely got all of this, and more. We started in Wicklow and headed south then west. Most of the 8 days included a hike, bike ride, boat tour, or surf lesson, and some days included multiple activities. The hikes in the west were definitely the highlights. Timeliness: there was often traffic and the drive times were longer than anticipated. However, Brian kept us appraised of delays and offered options as necessary to account for unforeseen delays or to reduce van time. Each afternoon, we reviewed options and made plans for the following day. Accommodations: all the regular places that Brian booked for us were great. There was an AirBnB in Galway--booked on relatively short notice when options were limited--that was a couple of km from city center and was a bit musty. Everything else was really nice, and the breakfasts provided by the hosts or paid for by Brian at local cafes were fantastic. Food generally was fresh and tasty, and Brian had great recommendations in most of the towns we stopped in. Music: we came across the best trad sessions in Doolin. Brian has some skill with the whistle! Other: I think Brian felt personally responsible for making sure we had a fun, safe, and complete adventure. He would often join us on hikes, took lots of great photos of our group, and shared his deep and extensive knowledge of Irish history and culture. We were amazed at the range of topics that he had experience with, and he brought a whole new layer of experience to the trip that we would not have gotten on our own. Our experience with Brian made us all aware of the potential for future guided trips when exploring new places.

I have used a number of guides. Some great and some less than stellar. I found Boru to be excellent. Step one is communications. This is really important to me in planning. Brian was excellent. My first attempted trip had to be canceled due to a medical issue. Everything was easily rebooked by Boru. We were picked up as desired. The tours we took were well planned. I believe you will be pleased if you use Boru.

We travelled to Dublin on a cruise ship. We used Boru Ireland Adventures to tour County Wicklow and had a wonderful time. Brian pick us up right at the cruise pier. I already had a skeleton plan laid out to see some scenery; Brian provided numerous suggestions to enhance our trip & build on the plan I had. He was really flexible and accommodating. He allowed us to move at our own pace (with our 8 yr old) and provided a great suggestion for lunch. I'd recommend him for scenic tours like we did; however, I believe based on what we discussed during our tour he would excel at guiding outdoor activities as well.

Bryan was super attentive and fun with us. He took us to wonderful places in the southwest of Irland. Certainly the best and most fun experience I've ever had with a tour company. Thank you so much Bryan!!
