Was solo and a bit over excited to hike in Ireland! Was to meet bus at same drop off … realized to late that I was at wrong spot. I called the office phone and she contacted driver to meet up with me! So embarrassed but they were so friendly and understanding and made me very comfortable. John and Michael were wonderful! Thanks so much for a lovely memory!
A perfect beautiful sunny day in National Park Connemara

It was perfect because we left on time and arrived on time too. The bus driver was very friendly and explained everything very well.
Good Hike in Ireland
Christina_N, Apr 2022
Loved the hike! Difficult at times but worth it for the views. Wasn’t really interested in the other stops we made along the way but I appreciate the variety.
Brilliant but not enough time at Diamond Hill
Morgane_D, Apr 2022
The tour was really good and our driver Macdara was great craic! He was very knowledgeable and made sure everyone felt included. The only issue I'd have with the tour was that 2hrs is not enough time to really enjoy diamond hill, and despite our driver's best efforts we had to remain on schedule so we couldn't stay longer than that... That said, the tour was brilliant - would recommend!

Antoinette_S, Apr 2022
We had a nice trip in the Connemara National Park and around. The landscapes were just beautiful and it was really worth the tour. Our driver MacDarla was very nice and interesting. It seemed he had travelled all over the world and knew very much about his country. Thank you to him and it’s little French words here and there. We enjoyed the day and the small bus with only 12 people on board was also very nice!
Response from Host, Aug 2022
Hi Antoinette, We are so happy to hear that you had such a nice day with us on tour with MacDara to Connemara. Thank you so much for your kind words about MacDara, we really appreciate it. It's great that his passion for Ireland, and travelling the world was shared with you while on tour! We hope to welcome you on tour again in the future. Go raibh míle maith agat! Eimear

YiChung_L, Apr 2022
The views are very good. Our guide is also willing to share stories and information of each place we passed by. Maybe next time I would try to climb Diamond mountain.
Response from Host, Jul 2022
Hi Yi-Chung, We really appreciate you taking the time to leave us a review after your day on tour with us. Connemara is a beautiful part of the world, and the views from the National Park and Diamond Hill are magnificent, and we are so glad that you chose to visit this great part of the world with us! Looking forward to welcoming you on tour again in the future. Go raibh míle maith agat! Eimear
A must-do hike when in Galway!
Kristin_J, Jul 2021
An excellent day out with loads to see and do! The guide was hilarious, really great fun and knew absolutely everything about Connemara. The hike was challenging, but I did manage to get to the top and back. I was going at a solid pace and was about 20 mins to spare before the bus was scheduled to leave. It was nice to know there were shorter loops if time got short, but I was confident to make it to the top! I got a quick lunch at the cafe at the national park, but I'd recommend taking a packed lunch to give more time on the hike. Thanks to driver Gerry for a fantastic day out!
Response from Host, Aug 2021
Hi Kristin, Thank you for the lovely 5 star review and well done on making it to the summit of Diamond Hill. The Views really are spectacular but thankfully so are the views from the less strenuous loops. Thank you Sláinte John

Gentil chauffeur /guide. Arrêts aux killary fjords, magique endroit 🍀 2h effectives dans le parc du Connemara pour une randonnée (des circuits au choix, 30 mn, 1h ou 1h30). Bien sûr plus vous montez plus la vue est jolie, mais ça grimpe ! Des petits cafés très sympas dans la petite ville en attendant le retour du bus 😊
