    Bud (Patrick) was an amazing, full of energy and interactive tour guide. I was quite sleepy from the day before, but from minute 1 of the tour I was entertained. He shared some interesting facts and personal experiences about Dublin and surroundings. Of course the weather was not amazing (I live in Copenhagen and I know what it is to have sun maybe twice a week? with luck! haha). The landscape is breathtaking and the pictures shown in the web page are 100% true!. I also enjoyed the meeting of the sheep farm and the farmer was very kind explaining the methods, quite interesting field! The hiking across the Natural Reserve of Glicklow was charming, and I loved that we could investigate the different routes by ourselves so having the possibility of enjoying whatever we felt like it. We also had very nice coffee in a beautiful bakery in the middle of Hollywood town. The bus road trip is not very long and the views are super nice. I definitely recommend this experience!

    This was a great experience! Mark is very knowledgeable and told us a lot of interesting information. We got to see a sheep dog demonstration, stop in a cute town called Hollywood, and spend time in Glendalough, which has beautiful views. We had plenty of time at each stop and you get to learn about the history.

    AMAZING!! I have done many tours around Europe but this one takes the cake! The tour guide Mark was very knowledgeable on the history of Ireland and was very accommodating! We had a wonderful time learning sheep herding, holding puppies and seeing the beautiful landmarks of the country side of Dublin! It was a great and cheap day trip!!! 10/10 recommend!
