Pat was extremely knowledgeable about Irish history and funny. He loves his country and job he "gets to do" every day. It really shows in this tour. It was a treat.

I took the one day Extreme Ireland Tour from Dublin to the Cliffs of Moher and Galway. The tour is by a large bus which is comfortable and easy to get into and out of. The driver is the guide and he was knowledgeable. If you've taken the Hop on Hop Off Bus, he will cover some of the same features. But still this tour is very well worth the money. We had just about enough time at each stop. I wholeheartedly recommend this tour. Cost: 38,50 Euros.

Mac is a great tour guide and a living history and song book.
He counted the participants in Gaelic :). He sang us Irish songs about the sights.
Nonetheless the landscape is beautiful and the tour is well planned. We had an amazing day.
Thank you

We were trying to figure out how to see the most of Ireland within a limited space of time. These tours have been perfect. We went to giants causeway, carrick a rede, Belfast, Galway, cliffs of moher, and the burren.
Some parts can feel a little rushed, especially narrower attractions like the causeway where you have a lot of hiking and narrow trails that are high traffic. But it really is a perfect way to see a lot of beautiful places within a single day on a budget, and still make it back to Dublin in time for a pint and some food.
Both of our tour guides were amazing on different scales. Our causeway guide was very down to earth, off-script, and welcoming. He never failed to greet us getting on or off the bus and even dropped us where we were staying. He gave us a lot of wonderful and honest history about the republic of and Northern Ireland. Our second guide to the cliffs was very informative about the land and scenery, and was funny to boot. Great experiences.

We did 3 trips with Irish Day tour :
- The Giant's causeway
- Connemara
- Cork + Barnley Castle

And the 3 trips were magical and the guides were super friendly and interesting sharing a lot of stories and annecdotes.

The Giants' causeway trip with Bud was exceptionnal. Bud has been taking care of all of us and patient all day. It was a pleasure to listen to his stories and get the chance to see all those great places. He also offered my Mum the irish songs CD we were listening during the trip. She is now in love with him.

I highly recommend Irish Day tour and would definitely visit the rest of Ireland with them
