    The tour was very well organised, the train and coach trips very comfortable and the Drymond B&B, which was cosy and very clean, gave us a wonderful taste of Irish hospitality. We had great views of the stunning scenery and landscape of the South-west of Ireland and all admissions to points of interest such as Blarney Castle, Cliffs of Moher, etc were efficiently taken care of with adequate provisions for rest within the scheduled times. The piece de resistance of the whole tour was our guide, Jonathan Beaumont. He gave us the best possible insight of Irish hospitality and welcome, he was professional and attentive to everyone, and imparted such in-depth and accurate historical facts of Ireland especially about the Great Famine. He also gave us interesting insights into the folklore and superstitions of Ireland such as the Fairy Tree :) . Our enjoyment of the whole tour was enhanced by this very special tour guide - thank you Jonathan! Doreen and Paule from Seychelles.

The trip was wonderful! The driver was really nice and funny. He made sure we understood everything that was happening. He also made sure we laughed and had fun. He informed us what was the best things to do. The ride was really relaxing and informative.

Must see tour

I would definitely recommend this tour! Make sure you are on time when they give you a time to meet back at the bus – they will leave you. Didn't happen to me, but saw it happen to a few. They do this to stay on schedule because it's a full day. Enjoy!

This was a really unique experience, and a great value for the cost. Our guide was very friendly and funny, and the Cliffs were absolutely stunning. The rest of western Ireland that we were able to see was also quite impressive!

Very nice trip! Not too long and not too short. Some extra little photo stops that were really nice. Go and do it! The cliffs of moher are amazing to see!

It was such an amazing trip, the guide was amazing, and the places aswell
