We had Shamus as our driver and guide and he was AWESOME!!so nice and informative and would stop when we wanted to snap a couple extra pictures. We only had about 15 people on this tour and it was great. Would definitely go again with Shamus...Shout out to Shamus..you were awesome.

Most of us visited Connemara National Park while a few of us went to Kylemore Abbey. We were given the opportunity to hike up to the summit of Diamond Hill. Not a very steep climb nor muddy but wet in some places. For those who went to Connemara, they did have the opportunity to see Kylemore Abbey for a photo stop. I have done Kylemore Abbey before but never the national park.

It is the perfect excursion if you don't want to rush and have a day in the nature. There are several stops in fisher villages and interesting places with very nice views. After this you can spend a couple of hours in Connemara National Park which is enough for a nice walk up to the peak.
The guide guy was very quiet and gave us nice advises and good history review.

The landscape you see on this tour is stunning, I would highly recommend. I would have liked a few more places to stop but I understand we were on a time schedule so just keep that in mind. Our driver was very pleasant and did a good job. Kylemore Abbey is under going some renovations so you won't get a perfect picture but it's still beautiful.

Great tour and our guide was very nice, knowledgeable and informative about the the history and the area. Beautiful scenery and he even showed us where and how peat was obtained! We got to see the crazy sheep and lots of ponies. The Abby was beautiful but be aware the outside is under restoration so half is covered in scaffolding but still a very beautiful place. The country side was beautifu!!! Well worth the trip and it was nice not to have to drive and just observe the scenery.

This tour was wonderful. The mood of the day was set by our fun, friendly and informative driver Pat Fahey. There were only a few of us so the bus was small and it was a more personal experience for everyone. I've been to Connemara previously and taken other tours. However, I was traveling with a niece who was a first-time visitor to Ireland and booked this company. I'm very pleased I did and would definitely recommend this tour company. All stops were well planned including stops for photo-ops, to shop and to have an Irish coffee!. We saw much of Connemara with frequent explanations about its history, political figures, customs, charming towns, and gorgeous countryside. The stop at Kylemore Abbey was a bonus! The bus was clean and comfortable, the price was extremely reasonable, and the overall experience was excellent!
