Very nice tour!

I found the mix of hiking and driving particularly good on the tour. Our tour guide Richard was super friendly and told us a lot about individual places or buildings. The only negative thing to note is that the tour started half an hour late without notice and that we would have liked to have had more time hiking. Otherwise everything was great!

Perfect day with professional services

On one day we saw many different 'faces' of Ireland and all of them in the stunning nature sites. The drive between them was all filled with interesting and funny guide explanations so that when you arrive you look at things differently and you remember them completely. I would definitly recommend this tour to everybody who spends at least a couple of days in Dublin. Flexible booking and ease of travel (especially for people not driving in UK-way) makes of this tour a fantastic value for its price and unforgettable souvenir.

A wonderful trip (rain in places)

This was a most enjoyable excursion, in a comfortable bus with an entertaining and knowledgeable guide. The monastic settlement at Glendaloch was a fascinating experience, and we had it all to ourselves (thanks to the weather).Distances covered between attractions are reasonable, so no hours of sitting on buses. I would certainly recommend this as an essential part of a visit to Ireland.
