Gerry, the driver and guide was really kind and helpful. But we didn’t spend a lot of time in the Connemara National Park (we had only 2 hours to eat and visit the park which needs 2h30 normally) Furthermore we stopped in places which were not really interesting whereas we could spend more time in the principal activity.

I enjoyed of the trip: it was full of pleasant emotions, because we saw the magnificent hills surrounded with calm lakes. From the distance and closer we saw the ocean coast and it was wonderful! Our experienced driver tried to show us the most picturesque views of our trip! Thanks a lot!

Unlike anywhere else in Ireland!

The Connemara area is just absolutely stunning and there's truly nothing like it anywhere else. Our bus driver, Mike, was excellent. He gave shared a lot of history of the area and how it's being protected today. He also made several stops for us to get out and take pictures. We opted to go to Kylemore Abbey because of the rainy weather. The abbey, church, and extensive gardens were quite beautiful. This was also where we had lunch and the lunch was quite good. I highly recommend this tour from Galway!

A Day In Paradise

Our tour guide Jerry was knowledgeable, entertaining, pleasant and made our day trip to Connemara & the Kylemore Abbey a day we will never forget. The path that he took and the pictures we captured were of some of Ireland's most beautiful scenes. The six of us will always remember our day with Jerry & his singing voice and jokes were also very good.

Great Day in Connemara

Took this tour with my adult family. It was nice that we were able to split up as some wanted to see the National Park and others Kylemore Abbey. The trip was very scenic and we were able to enjoy the sights throughout the drive with some stops thrown in.

Bus Was Terrible

I really wish I could give this tour a better rating, because the scenery was beautiful, the places we stopped were interesting, and the guide was very knowledgeable. However, the bus was so horrible that I could never recommend it. Picture the amount of room you have in an airline seat, then divide that by half. I'm 5'8" tall, and my knees were jammed into the seat in front of me. I was sitting on the aisle, and I basically spent the entire time twisted in strange contortions, with one or two legs hanging into the aisle, trying to find a comfortable position. My son, who is 6'2", was also on the aisle and was equally miserable. The two people we were sitting next to, in the window seats, were also contorted. I can't even begin to describe how uncomfortable it was. At one point, my mom (who is 5'4"), moved her body from right to left. Her knee banged into the seat in front of her so hard that it ripped the skin off her knee through her pants. I had to get a first aid kit from the driver at the next stop, because the blood was soaking through her pants and dripping down in into her socks. In addition, we met the bus at the meeting point rather than being picked up at our hotel like the other riders, and by that time the bus was basically full so we couldn't get four seats together. The kids in the seat next to us talked LOUDLY the entire time, having zero interest in what the guide was saying over the intercom system. Because this was a group tour, there was zero flexibility in how long we stayed at each stop. I don't usually book group tours, but I made an exception for this one due to the excellent review. I wish I hadn't. This was a physically miserable day for all of us.

I'm sorry to hear about your mother's injury, this is the first time I've heard of something like this happening on one of our vehicles. Incidently, all our vehicles are subject to a quarterly inspection and a full annual inspection to ensure they comply with Irish roadworthness and safety standards. All equipment, including the first aid kit, is inspected at these intervals. I do think think you're 100% right though, group tours are not for you. We also offer private chaufeur tours starting at €450.00 per day.

Great guide and the highlight was the Abbey for us. Could have stayed there a lot longer Guided helped out by selling entry to Abbey in van But could have just included that in price, no?

Booked this trip after reading past reviews and wasn't disappointed. Our driver Gerry was outstanding, knowledgable, witty and very friendly. He always asked us to speak up if we wished to stop which was much appreciated. The tour was on a smaller bus with only about 20 people and it felt like a personal tour. Shout out to Gerry!

This was our first tour in Ireland and probably one of our favorites! We had a great guide, Pete, who was a wealth of information and made the trip so much fun! We were able to get some beautiful scenic stops in. My husband and I stopped at Connemara for a few hours, which left time for a hike and ssome coffee at the little cafe. This was such a memorable tour!
