Our winter tour to Connemara and Galway Bay was terrific! Our train companion, Frank, was charming and informative. We were met at Galway station by the Coach and tour driver, whose wit and information was delightful. I'd recommend this tour to everyone!

I loved it! Kylemore Abbey makes the entire tour! The tour operator is really organized. I never felt like I was lost or left on my own to figure things out. For a beautiful tour, definitely take this one!

This was an opportunity to see a large, green sweep of country side. It was SO worth the time! I would return and bring my family members with me.
