John did a great job on our trip to Kylemore Abbey and Connemara. He provided us with information on points of interest along the way,made several stops and gave us time to take pictures. Also provided a couple of tips on how to make best use of our time at the Abby.

It's a nice little tour, with a few caveats. The fjord is listed among the things we would visit but we only drove by without stopping, so if you are sitting on the wrong side of the bus you don't even get to see it, and really all the stops other than the Abbey are ok but nothing too special. Kylemore Abbey and its grounds however are spectacular and it's great that the entrance ticket was also included. The bus was very comfortable even though it lacked power sockets to recharge the phone.

Beautiful day. Entering the Connemara nature park was something unique. Breathtaking views. The bus made us make some stops to photograph the views and enjoy the fresh and genuine climate of the mountains. And our guide Phel was very nice and prepared to tell us the history of these places. And then the expanses of lakes ... mirror the nice sheep that graze there. The blue sky kisses the emerald green so as to make this unforgettable journey wonderful. Experience a must do! Always recommended!
