Kylemore Abbey is beautiful, you have to see it. Galway is a fun city with lots of shopping and music. The best part of the tour was watching the sheep herding and bogging. Tour guide Bud is the sweetest person you'll ever meet. This was the best tour of my vacation to Ireland.

Thanks to Laura Gunning (Extreme Ireland), this trip was the highlight of our 10 days in Ireland! My husband and I traveled w/my 79yo mom and Laura paid special attention to her, took her under her wing when mom couldn't join us for things. Because we were there in Feb, the river cruise was out, but lucky us…the trip to sheep farm was ON! We hiked down to bog, saw sheepherding demo, and got to hold and feed baby lambs. We'll never forget it. Stops were well planned and we saw SO MUCH!! Highly recommend this tour. You might want to make sure "Extreme Ireland" is the tour co. that takes you…and ask for Laura! It was a memory-making trip for us.

Very short and very sweet tour. Good for someone who do not have much time but would like to see the natural beauty of Irish countryside. Big thanks to our tour guide Gab - he did very good job telling jokes and many interesting stories!!!

Connemara is beautiful with the two lakes and the Monastic site. Boat trip of Killarey Harbor was beautiful. Galway City was a fun, hip little village, beautiful park. Wish we had just a bit more time there though to see more of the city instead of just the main drag. Great tour guide!

We had a very knowledgeable and informative tour guide (Niall) and enjoyed the trip very much. We had a great group of diverse people and the Irish scenery is amazing. I travel to Ireland frequently for business but always try to go somewhere different each time. This is a fabulous way to tour. Thank you

We had a great tour guide. He gave us so much of the history of Ireland and each area we went through. We thoroughly enjoyed it and the area is beautiful. We were not as much thrilled with the boat trip. More of a repeat of what we had already seen and heard about on the bus tour and it was terribly crowded.

So great - loved the sheep dog show - best part of the trip! In addition to watching the skills of the dog, we were able to try our hand at cutting sod. I felt like I was a real Irish-woman! Wonderful wonderful trip and our guide Kevin was fantastic!! Thanks!!!

We left Dubln in the early hours by bus. It was a great trip seeing the countryside, and the quiet towns and villages. Damien was a great tour guide. He had many interesting facts and stories to share about the areas. The Pub we stopped at for lunch was excellent. Best Fish and Chips we ever had. The cruise was very nice, the the Abbey stop was so peaceful. The only suggestion I have is to eat before getting to the boat. Their meal selection was very limited. The food they offered was good though.I would recommend this trip to anyone who wants to see the real Ireland and breath in the culture of the land. Try to get Damian as your tour guide, you will learn a lot about Ireland's history, present and future plans. He has great stories to keep you entertained.

This tour was fabulous. Our tour guide was patient, knowledgable, friendly and made our day tour interesting and fun. He was helpful and was happy to do anything he could to make our day an enjoyable one. This tour showed us some spectacular sights in Ireland and no visit to Dublin would be complete without seeing this lovely area of Ireland. I highly recommend this tour to everyone. Thanks for a wonderful day.

I was afraid the day might get too long, but it wasn't bad at all with the new motorway heading across to Galway. Connemara is a wonderful, rugged part of Ireland, and no trip to the Emerald Isle would be complete without visiting the west. We had dreadful weather, but still a fun time. You will, of course, be in the bus for a great deal of the time, but it was broken up by fairly frequent stops. We had nearly two hours at Kylemore Abbey and a full hour in Galway to explore. And our driver, Bud, was very friendly and fun.

This trip was great! We were making good time, so our driver was thoughtful enough to make a few extra stops. He was very knowledgeable, and the boat ride in the fjord was beautiful. Even my 11 year old son enjoyed it. I definitely recommend this trip.

It was a lovely day, the driver (Mike) was great and certainly knew his history. I would highly recommend this tour as it offers an opportunity to see the "green" of Ireland. We asked to be dropped off in Galway instead of returing to Dublin-we (and our luggage) were accommodated and the driver even dropped us to our hotel at the end of the tour.

Highly recommend

We had a very small group but Ger was a great guide. Gave us lots of great info and was extremely flexible and accommodating, and knew where to stop for the best photos. We had a great day and loved the trip!
