We decided to take a tour rather than drive ourselves that day and it was the best decision!! Our driver and guide, Alan, was phenomenal! He not only was a safe and considerate bus driver, but he delighted us with his history of Ireland; the attractions he pointed out along the way; his direction on what to expect and what to do regarding getting onto the ferry to the Aran Islands, and being back on time; his assistance in coordinating the various tour methods on the island; his directions on where to go for food and the best sites, etc.; his jokes that were actually very funny; and overall, his warm and approachable personality! I don't feel that the experience would have been as positive or as informative had we driven ourselves. I hope that anyone that books with this tour has the good fortune of travelling with Alan! :)
Firstly you should know that we actually did not end up going to the Islands because the water was too dangerous for any boats to go out at sea (it was the day after Hurricane Lorenzo). However, the guides came up with a great alternative plan which was definitely still worth every penny. The tour guide had a great way of filling up our day with stories, and interesting facts about the region through which we were travelling that would otherwise not have much meaning to foreigners. Overall, it was a day really well spent. Please note: check the forecast before you book and plan accordingly. Up on the Cliffs the wind can be violent and if it rains, it is freezing, so be prepared!
It was a lovely day. Our guide, John, is a friendly, and excellent guide. He showed us wonderful scenery with a playful sense of humor. Dramatic cruise to the Island Ishneer, where we took a horse and cart tour, then back for lunch, or in our case, coffee and crumble (delicious). Bought an Aran sweater in a very small shop that had a good selection. The day passed almost too quickly.
The trip Jerry took us on was amazing .We enjoyed every second of it. His voice is so soothing. He carries the entire trip . He was very knowledgeable. He has the same energy as Bob Ross ,I’ve never met such a man. He should try ASMR. His tunes were fire as well. He is the ultimate gentleman ,bus driver and storyteller.
perfect way to see the Atlantic Way and Cliffd of Moher. The ferry wasn't available due to strong wave and currents do we couldn't do the Aran Island but the view from the Cliffs included a rainbow and the two additional stops and the extended time at the Cliffs made up for it.
