Michael Faherty is the way to go for a day tour to Inishmoore. He takes care of everything. He gives you a lot of information about the area and since he is from the island he knows it well. He gave us plenty of time for shopping and eating as well as seeing the main sites. He was funny and... More

I could not have ever asked for a more fabulous person to learn and see the Aran Islands with other than Michael. I have been dreaming about seeing this part of Ireland for quite a while and I truly loved seeing it thru the eyes and experience of a native of the island who is the epitome of Irish hospitality....

Michael has a way with people and seems to thoroughly enjoy giving these tours. we made a point to talk to him away from the crowd and it was awesome getting to hear more in depth stories from someone who grew up there. The views at the top of Dun Aengus were breathtaking and rival some of the views from... More

What a beautiful island and a very well coordinated day! Michael was there to meet us promptly at 9:05 am in Galway. The bus ride to the boat was easy and the countryside was amazing. The boat was super rocky but a short journey of 45 minutes. We had perfect weather the day I went. Michael's tour was informative and... More

We had inquired about taking our two young boys aged 3 years and 10 months and there was no charges for taking our children. In... More

This was an amazing tour of the Aran Islands. Michael is a native to the islands and he provides a great insight to the culture of not only the islands but of Ireland too. We missed our tour on the day we were supposed to go (our own fault) and we called Michael that night and he was more that... More

Michael had arranged two Aran Island tours for me, one with my family in 2010 and one with a student group I led last March. Both experiences were outstanding, so when I brought 24 students to Galway again last week, I asked Michael to arrange tours for not only Inishmore, but the Cliffs of Moher and Connemara as well. Michael... More
