Dave O'Connor did an outstanding job of taking 12 very different individuals and creating a tour that fit us all! He is a not only an amazing tour guide, but also a great storysteller, and really made Ireland come alive for us. He kept us highly entertained at all times, with beautiful scenery, hidden sites, lots of laughs, and plenty... More

What more can you say about something (someone) who gets 279 out of 280 possible "stars" on Trip Advisor (and the guy who gave 4 stars still pretty much raved about the trip.)? I remember when we were searching the Internet for the best way to see Ireland, we found it reassuring to see reviews that were current - so... More

I can't say enough wonderful things about Dave O'Connor and Wolfhound Adventure Tours (http://www.wolfhoundtours.com). My husband and I had not been to Ireland before, but now we can't wait to return. Dave was a great storyteller with a wonderfully witty sense of humor. He went out of his way to make everyone feel included. He was also able to customize... More

Dave O'Connor was the highlight of his Wolfhound Adventure Tours. Our tour group was diverse and Dave made sure we all had the vacation of our lives. Hiking, cycling, kayaking, surfing, pub crawling, singing, dancing, storytelling, history and mighty craic filled our days. Leave the tourist traps behind and experience the beauty of Ireland, it's rich history and it's greatest... More

Dave O'Connor has an uncanny ability to adapt to his small tour groups' interests and nature. After completing Wolfhound's 6 day south west tour, my wife and I want to return for the 5 day western tour and maybe the north as well. We came back with amazing videos and over 1,000 high quality photos. We avoided tourist traps resulting... More

This was a trip absolutely worth taking. If you want to experience Ireland in all its splendor outside of the big tour groups and crowded attractions Dave takes you biking and hiking through areas rich in natural beauty and history. Dave is a great guide and storyteller and he gives you a context for every thing you do that will... More

We came to know Wolfhound Tours through friends. They spoke so highly of their tour (the Western Tour) that we decided to book with Dave O'Conner. We chose the Southwest tour, and were just as happy! Noteably, the reward isn't in the tour itself (although you cannot beat the sites you see), it is the stories, remote travel, humor, knowledge,... More

We just got back from the 6 day tour of the Southwest of Ireland with Wolfhound Adventure Tours (http://www.wolfhoundtours.com). It was an amazing experience. I highly recommend it for active families that don’t want to sit on a bus all day. It’s a small private tour (there were only 10 of us) and a one man show—Dave O’Conner is the... More

"I've had the time of my life!" keeps running through my mind when I reflect on our two trips with Wolfhound - as well as "The Fields of Athenry"! My husband and I went on the 5 day West and 6 day Southwest Wolfhound tours using the time between the trips to enjoy the Dublin area. The first trip was... More

I almost made the mistake of booking a tour on one of the huge white buses that you see all over Ireland. Luckily, I read about Dave O'Connor's Wolfhound Tour company(www.wolfhoundtour.com ) . In a group of just 11 travellers, Dave showed us the Ireland not seen by most visitors. His knowledge of Irish history paired with his amazing attention... More
