What people are saying about County Clare

What a wonderful day of adventures, really enjoyed it. Very well organised tour. Bicycling on the island was a highlight. Our guide David kept us safe on windy roads and entertained us with stories about the past and present. We even stopped and fed carrots to two cute donkeys. Highly recommend!

Highly recommend this trip! It was such a lovely way to experience the Cliffs of Moher and to see it from the water and go on top. The trip to the Aran Islands was also lovely, as well as the lunch at the pub we visited. Our guide, Tommy, was such a delight - so friendly, funny, and helpful.

It was so worth every penny. Our guide, Tommy, was fantastic and made sure each guest was well looked after. Would recommend to everyone!

Tommy, the tour guide and driver, he is amazing, super funny. He is a real storyteller!
