This trip was amazing- I've done a bit of traveling all over the world in the last two years and this tour was my favorite.
The accommodation was clean, comfortable, and super friendly. It actually exceeded my expectations and the included breakfasts are DELICIOUS DELICIOUS DELICIOUS. Esp the lemon honey pancakes from the B&B in Sligo OMG. Many of the rooms were newly renovated and there was always a soft bed to fall into and a luxuriously hot shower at the end of a great day outdoors.
The food in Ireland is super awesome. Don't be afraid of the cafeterias in visitor centers or little cafes and bars because it's really fresh and almost everything is homemade. A real treat!!!
This tour was excellent value- there's no way in hell I could have paid for transport, rooms, and all the included activities for what extreme Ireland will do it for!!! Plus our guide was invaluable. He took us to off the beaten path hikes and was really knowledgeable about Ireland's history. Overall just a great guy who was very passionate about Ireland and showing us a great time. I really can't say enough about how great a value this tour was.
The activities on the tour range from bicycling to kayaking to horseback riding, and there's lots of beautiful hikes! My favorite activity was kayaking in a bioluminescent lake near Baltimore, and I have to say bicycling around slea head was super hard and a little frustrating (it was god awful windy that day) but it wound up being one of the funniest days for my group bc we had a great laugh about it and naturally we called tony when we couldn't take it anymore and he came and got us. (Our guides name was tony).
Brilliant, brilliant tour. i would take this tour again in a heartbeat, and I certainly plan to come back to Ireland! Thanks for an awesome adventure extreme ireland!!!
