If you don't know the Galway Girl song yet, you will by the end of this tour. What beautiful countryside along the wild atlantic way! And if your tour guide pulls to the side of the road in the middle of nowhere to see who dares run across the rickety bridge, just do it - you will be sad to miss what is on the other side of the hill.

Our tour guide was a riot! He kept us entertained with songs of all kinds from local lore. Although the flooding was a bit much in the village of Cong where the Quiet Man was filmed and we were unable to get into Ashford Castle, we got to see much of the gorgeous countryside and shop for a while in Galway. It's a long tour but worth the money we paid. :

Good tour, but slightly disappointed that the bus had no microphone and no information about the history/area we were visiting. We would have liked more time to explore Cong, and spent less time Galway but well worth the money anyway to get a flavor of Ireland.

Beautiful scenery, but the weather was cold and rainy...no ones fault, but it made it a little difficult to enjoy a tour that involved being outside most of the time. We did enjoy the village of Cong despite everything being closed as it was not yet tourist season. The time in Galway was enjoyable and my wife and daughter enjoyed shopping there.

Best part of this tour was the stop made in Cong--wish I just could have spent a day there.

Ashford Castle was stunning, but not much time devoted to that long walk, and felt rushed. Galway was a lovely place and you cannot miss the scenic ride along the way with happy cows/sheep, etc. Tour guide was perfect, entertaining and informative.

too much riding and too little information about what we were seeing. the village of cong was interesting. enjoyed the impromptu tour by the highway man. too little time in galway. some confusion
about changing buses and spent an hour waiting in the gas station for the 2nd bus to show up to take us to dublin.
