This tour was the best tour I could have expected out of the day. CJ (the tour guide) and Vedren (the coach bus driver) we’re fantastic. CJ was knowledgeable, clear in his descriptions and planning for the group, and super considerate in when to let the group rest/get off the mic (which can be a huge annoyance for a tour member). Vedren navigated the windy roads of Ireland like a pro. I know that even my 90+ year old grandmother would be comfortable, had she come on the tour. Thanks to both of these two + all those at Finn McCools! Merry Christmas!

We had an amazing time! Gina was super informative and hilarious and gave us a great pub recommendation for Galway City, and Vic’s driving skills are beyond reproach (he parallel parked our charter bus better than I can park a car). The mini stops at the Barren and monastery were nice as well. Highly recommend!

10/10 definitely recommend this tour! It was a wonderful day and Gina and Vic were an incredible team. I learned so much about Ireland from Gina and the sights were beautiful. A perfect day trip to see Ireland outside of Dublin!

Was such a good experience and a great way to meet new people and see some of Dublin’s great nightlife! Would highly recommend!

Tour guide was amazing! bus was very clean. Amazing tour and would recommend to anyone!
