This tour is a lovely introduction to Connemara--an area of Ireland filled with mountains and lakes. Don't expect to stay in any one place for long as this tour covers a lot of ground. There are many photo stops and chances to stretch your legs. Our longest stop was a Kylemore Abbey which was two hours. You obviously could spend an entire day there, but with strategic tips from our guide Ken, I managed to see everything I came here for. A helpful tip was to take the shuttle to the Victorian walled gardens first. They are lovely and not to be missed. There is also a nice tea shop in the garden for a snack.
we had a great tour guide! the places we visited were beautiful and my boyfriend still talks about how much fun he had. The scenery is breathtaking and the guide was very informative and had a great personality. Not to be missed!
This was a nice day trip that took you over the Irish country side. You learned a bit of history, viewed some spectacular gardens, and phenomenal country side.
This was the perfect day trip for our short time in Ireland. By traveling in the bus, you get to see the wide range of stunning landscapes Ireland has to offer. Our tour guide, Phil, was fantastic! Giving knowledgeable recommendations and facts about Irish culture.
Very comfortable day trip. The coach has been well driven and comfortable. The driver is a good guide too. Had many chances to get off and enjoy the view. Well-planned, organized yet rewarding trip. Definitely recommend this.
I nad my wife went to Connemara on 23 June. Galway tour company was excellent. Our guide Roger was more than a guide. Connemara is a natural beauty. I recommend this tour 10 out of 10 times.
Beautiful landscape. Very knowledgeable tour guide. We learned so much! The bus was brand new and beautiful. Picked us up at our hotel. Very accommodating.
Loved every minute of the day! Fabulous tour guide and lovely area of Ireland.
Our tour guide helped make our final day in Ireland a memorable experience!!! Phil was hilarious, informative and accommodating. He not only brought context to the sights and sounds of Ireland, but helped us appreciate the spirit of the Irish people. A beautiful tour in all respects!!! Thank you, Phil!!!
Mike D was awesome very imformative and funny had a great time!! I would highly recommend the tour
Fun tour! Great way to get out of the city and see the countryside. Had I driven myself, I would have gotten lost around Connemara. Totally worth doing.
The driver was superbly entertaining, and the trip was amazing. Very Happy to recommend this trip to all who want to see the area. The Kylemore Abbey was actually just a bit disappointing, as there were so many people and you don't get to see many rooms. Had much more fun on the road and at the Friary.
PJ was wonderful- funny, informative, and a fine driver. We enjoyed our day very much!
Our tour operator was PJ. He was excellent! We were able to see the mountains and the countryside of sheep farmers with their baby lambs. So sweet! The story of Kylemore Abbey is even more beautiful than the beautiful Abbey itself. We had a great day and thoroughly enjoyed it all. I would recommend this tour.
I booked this tour after reading the reviews and was really glad we did, it was excellent. The bus departs from the COACH station not the bus station, this was not stated on the itinerary.
The driver Mike D was superb, spoke in great detail about the areas we were passing, clear on instructions of where to go and when to return to the bus and navigating along the narrow country roads.
We stopped off at Kylemore Abbey first, which is quite spectacular along with the gardens and church, there's a cafe and shop on the grounds. We made several stops to take photo's of the amazing views of the Connemara mountains and surrounding areas. We had a look around the village Cong, which is where the film The Quiet man was filmed.
Thoroughly enjoyed the tour and would strongly recommend it.
My wife cried when we had to leave. We returned on another day. More than that I need not say.
The tour was great. The scenery spectacular. Paul was very knowledgeable and a great guide. Only downside was the pouring rain at the abbey
Excellent way to see the country side and Kylemore Abbey if you do not have a car. Scenery was beautiful. Very good tour.
we all really enjoyed this tour Mick Dee our driver was brilliant and very entertaining. We got some beautiful photos and would go on a tour again thanks for a great day
