    I can’t recommend this tour enough! The tour guide, Sean, was really outstanding. He had amazing stories and shared his knowledge on the history of Ireland throughout the tour. Very talented story teller! Also, appreciate the driver, Vedran, very much for keeping us safe on those tiny roads!

    What a wonderful day spent touring this part of Ireland! John our driver was superb, skillfully navigating narrow and winding roads while providing colorful commentary. Since he speaks Gaelic, he easily organized horse drawn carriages for our large group on Inishmoirr. This tour is not to be missed!

    James, our tour guide, was AWESOME! I reached out over a month in advance to several companies as I planned to propose to my girlfriend at the Cliffs and James was the only one who both responded and genuinely seemed excited / willing to help in any way possible. He had champagne and chocolates ready for us after the big moment AND James took numerous photos of us throughout the day. He really did capture our special moment and day perfectly - the photos all turned out great! He was very knowledgeable and accommodating. I highly recommend booking with Liberty Irish Tours if you want a memorable experience.

    A great time! The scenery was fantastic, and our guide Brian told a lot of fascinating stories about Irish culture and history. There was a driver for the bus, John, who did a great job. The tour started at 6:40 AM at the train station. When we got there at 6:10, the greeter was already there with a yellow RailTours jacket on. Then another greeter got on the train with us and made sure we changed trains when we should! So helpful. The bus was quite new and comfortable. We could leave our backpacks on the bus while walking around the sites. Cliffs of Moher were stunningly beautiful. Got back to Dublin on the train at 9:45 PM, and Brian was with us the whole time to make sure we were fine. Highly recommend!

    I highly recommend this tour. The tour guide was amazing: enthusiastic, funny, and super well-versed in local history and sights. The route the tour took included a dozen interesting local sights as well as the cliffs, and we were given plenty of time to get out and walk around and take pictures. It never felt rushed and was overall relaxing and informative. The pub we stopped for lunch at was also a highlight and not somewhere you’d likely know to go to otherwise.

    We could not recommend this experience more!!!
    We would give John 5 stars as well. He kept us on time, respectfully told us of the history… and his love for his country and this part of Ireland was apparent.
    Each stop was more spectacular than the one before, and they were all great.
    May is a great time to come!
    Lunch was also exceptional! What a great find!
    Would rebook this tour over and over again!
    Traveling with my daughters (27 and almost 30!)
    Highlight of the trip!

    My family and I had a pretty good experience with this company on our 3 night/4 day tour of Southern Ireland. Our driver picked us up at our hotel in Dublin at 8am and we headed to the Rock of Cashel then to the Blarney Castle. We arrived at the castle around 11am and the line to get to the top of the castle was about one hour so we decided to walk around the grounds. When we got back the line was an hour and half but figured that what we were there to do, to kiss the Blarney Stone. After that we were supposed to meet our driver but we still hadn’t had lunch so our driver was fine waiting another hour for us. We then headed to Killarney that we stayed for two nights. Time that evening to have dinner and visit the pubs. The next morning our driver picked us up and we drove the Ring of Kerry. This is a beautiful drive. We stopped at several spots for photo taking but pretty much saw lots of busses. It was nice to be able to stop somewhere and when we were ready then could just take off without waiting on a bus load of people. Stopped for lunch, each lunch spot was picked by our driver guessing he gets a kickback for doing that. Lunch was fine, nothing that exciting as most of the restaurants seem to serve the same kind of food. Back to Killarney we took a nice carriage ride through the national park which was very nice. Our carriage driver then dropped us off at the Killarney brewery since we wanted to go there. That evening our driver had recommended us seeing an Irish dance show which he organized getting us the tickets that morning. He picked us up from our hotel and dropped us up at the show. We were able to return on a shuttle bus that dropped you at the center of town. Our hotel was very convenient and in the center of everything. Day 3 we were picked up again in the morning and traveled to the Dingle peninsula. This was very enjoyable and we really liked the town. Got a chance to have a beer at a really cool combo pub/hardware store then lunch at a local restaurant that had good fish n Chips. From there we headed to Galway for our last night. My biggest disappointment was that our hotel was not within walking distance to the center of town but after check in our driver came back for us and dropped us off in town where we had dinner and visited several of the pubs there. We really loved Galway and wished we would of spent another day there. Next morning we headed to the Cliffs of Moher which was beautiful. We were lucky to have a beautiful sunny day. We walked on top of the cliffs and then took a boat ride to see them from down below. Although it was nice. I think I would skip the boat as I think the view from up top was nicer. After there on our way back to Dublin our driver allowed us to make an extra stop to the oldest pub in the world called Sean’s Bar in Athlone. That was pretty cool to see. Then it was back on the road fo4 a 6pm drop off at ou4 hotel in Dublin. I really think we got to see a lot in a short time but there is a lot of driving involved. Our driver was very knowledgeable and shared lots of info with us. Our vehicle (large Mercedes van) was very comfortable and it also had a WiFi hotspot. If we needed to make a bathroom stop or grab a drink he was happy to oblige. This is a fairly structured tour but not as structured as a large bus tour would be so it was pretty enjoyable for our family of four.

    We absolutely loved both the cliffs of Moher by land and sea as well as our time on the island. We don’t typically like bus tours, but felt like this one was worthwhile. There was a proper balance of being a guided day that still allowed us to have ample freedom to explore on our own. Our tour guide, Dave, was very friendly, helpful, knowledgeable and fun to talk with. Thanks again, Dave!!

    My husband and I had an incredible day to Cliffs of Moher with Richard O'Brien. Oh my goodness he is so hilarious - he made the trip 10x better. He has a wonderful sense of humour and had us laughing most of the day. The Cliffs of Moher truly are a wonderful sight to see, We loved the lunch at the pub in Doolin - McDermotts - the best Irish stew we have ever had!. Thank you for a wonderful trip. We will be back to Ireland again soon.

    Excellent service aboard...the crew (criu) was attentive to safety and comfort needs of passengers. They often recommended the best places to sit to avoid getting sea sick, and checked often to verify that everyone was okay. Passengers were notified when the ferry was getting closer to landing, and points of interest pointed out along the way.
    Arriving at Inis Mor , it was easy to get a shuttle bus to take around the island. This trip should be a "must" on any Galway visit!!

    Awesome experience, Our guide, John was amazing, simply the best, taking care of us to see many sights, I highly recommend this private tour. Skip the buses, the lines. With John, we really saw wild Atlantic, Irish country side and looped many of the tour sites into a single day..

    Without realizing, my friend and I booked the same tour twice - once with the national park stop and once with the abbey stop. We were allowed to still cancel either one, however felt no need and were glad to do the (almost) identical tour two days in a row. Our driver, Michael, was very knowledgeable about the area and the Abbey, even hearing some parts a second time did not make it any less interesting. The abbey was absolutely stunning and I enjoyed my trip very much.

    Just a tip for LallyTours: Even though I enjoyed both tours very much, I think a photostop at Kylemore Abbey would have sufficed for me, personally. It would have been amazing if there was a chance to take a quick photograph of the Abbey on the way to the National Park. I know there are plenty of people who are happy strolling around the Abbey and gardens, but it would eliminate the need to do the tour twice for the people who would like just a quick view and photograph on the way to the National Park. Just a thought.
