Had a super fun tour with Paula and Holly. Very nice and friendly woman. We have traveled a long way and seen a lot. Very nice! She could tell a lot about the places we passed and also had good tips for places we should visit. The tour was beautiful, we went through a nice forest, climbed a mountain and walked along the cliffs. There were also plenty of opportunities to take pictures, Paula loved to take the pictures! A very nice unique experience, and for this amount more than worth it!! 10/10

Honestly I can't say enough good things about this tour. I took three tour from Dublin, one to Blarney Castle, Cork & Cobh, and another to the Cliffs of Moher & Galway that were both great, both this tour was my favorite. The island was beautiful, first we got to see the Howth Castle and hear local oral history about pirates and ancient Howth family lines, then we started into the woods where we explored a gorgeous rhododendron forest. I especially loved this as I've been living in the desert of Spain for several months now and it reminded me of my home in Asheville, NC. Next we climbed a peak to see Howth and the bay spread out below us in a spectacular display of glistening waters and rolling green hills. We continued our tour along the coast to a pebbled beach. It was a local spot, nothing you would find on google maps. Shane was wonderful company the whole tour, I enjoyed watching everyone we met great him excitedly by name almost as much as I enjoyed the company of his dog Loki.
