Offered by Galway Tours, is one of the best companies to have a day trip with. Nice driver who explained a lot about the country and the stops, with a good condition bus to travel with. The tour comes without tickets to Kylemore, but you can buy them to the driver at a discount price.

Mike was the best tour guide. He spoke to us the whole day, I would have been exhausted. I learned so much about the culture and history of Ireland. he made us laugh and laugh. Going through Connemara was exceptional.

Excellent experience! Bus was comfy, driver was great and super informative. Would have loved more time at the stops but we covered a lot of ground and loved everything about the tour. Highly recommend!

An amazing tour that exceeded all expectations . The driver guide was brilliant, so knowledgable about the area and extremely funny too! . We had a wonderful day.

the driver/guide was great- reviewed so much history and context- better than I could have expected on a day-bus trip
