Connemara / Cliffs of Moher
My husband and I took two day tours with this company and we were very satisfied.
The first tour we took was Connemara day tour. It was great because we were lucky to travel on a small bus, so it was definitely more comfortable than travelling with another 50 people on a big coach. Our driver Tony was fun to be with and he told us so much about Irish history in a gripping and entertaining way, so even though we are not very keen on history, we just loved it.
Although the weather wasn’t perfect, we’d still appreciate more photo stops on the way, but that’s just about the only negative thing we can say about the tour.
The second tour was to the Cliffs of Moher and we enjoyed that one much more as the weather was on our side and frankly it’s just a place worth visiting. We got to see a couple more places besides the Cliifs, such as the Burren and Corcomroe Abbey and we really enjoyed the day. The tour guide (can’t remeber his name) wasn’t as talkative as our previous guide, but that’s fine, it was a great experience anyway
The only thing we didn’t understand was the organization of the trip. On the second day we got to the meeting point in Suffolk Street 10-15 minutes before planned departure and after 5 minutes of waiting we found out that lots of people were already sitting in the bus which was down in the main street, so if it wasn’t for a guide who came for people waiting for a different tour we wouldn’t really know where to go and we weren’t the only ones. As there were more buses standing it would be better if they were clearly labelled where they’re going.
Irish Day Tours Connemara and Galway 1 day tour
We really enjoyed our Irish Day Tour trip to Connemara. Our tour guide was nice and chatty and told us very interesting trivia about Ireland’s history and culture. He took care that nobody was left behind and took enough time to explain where we were and when we were supposed to get back on the bus. We also had plenty of bathroom stops. The Connemara national park was stunning! We also loved the boat trip along Killarney fjord. The reason why I didn’t give this tour the best rating was that the stops (photo-stops etc.) were a little bit too short considering the time we had to spend sitting on the bus. It was hard to take pictures onboard the bus through the windows and the motorway was not that exciting to look at. Also the visit to Galway city was somewhat disappointing: the city centre is very busy and packed with tourists. It would’ve been more interesting and memorable to visit a smaller village or to stop farther away from the Galway city centre. All things considered, this tour is worth your money if you’re interested in fresh air and stunning views at the mountains and the nice countryside athmosphere. I would totally recommend Irish Day Tours and would love to take another tour from them whenever we come back to Ireland.
I enjoyed this trip not only for its natural beauty displayed by the richness Ireland offers us but the guide truly makes it. I appreciated the trip even more. One of the most beautiful and memorable days in Ireland. Trip advisor June 2014
