Very good Tour. The driver jokes all the time and tells quite a few stories about Ireland. It does not include the entrance to Kylemore Abbey but the driver sells the ticket for €10, which is fine because if you go on your own it will cost you €15.

Our driver Mike made our time very enjoyable. The tour was greatly organised and we had enough time for everything.

The tour was great and Mike was amazing. Funny and informative, have a great time will be booking with them again.

Our driver was amazing, funny, and knowledgeable. The serious were beautiful. I can't say enough good things.

It was truly interesting to learn about the bogs, The Abby, Connemara and Cong!
