This is a great way to view the Aran islands (Inishmore) and Thomas being a local was well-versed with the history and went out of his way to show us the sites, to the point of being inundated with a 60 foot wave while taking some pictures of some of our group! Was a fun day, loved the walk out... More

We booked Tomas over the last weekend for a day trip of the Island. What an excellent decision. He collected us from the hotel with a lovely trap, that had a roof and clear removable walls (in case of rain), blankets, pulled by the lovely horse called Johhny. It was the 4 of us and another 4 people, and we... More

I had booked my tour online and picked the Pony and Trap tours because of the comments on here. I had also seen that you could rent bikes and was regretting that I didn't do that until I went there! The island is very hilly and I had the best time possible! I happened to be the only person that... More

I booked Tommy for a tour of the island for my mom and I. It was a lovely day and an easy way to see the island. I think his dog, Kelly, is the most photographed dog there. Tommy with his dog beside him and the horse and carriage make a great picture. We got to hear some fun stories... More

We booked Aran Pony & Trap tour when we booked our night at Seacrest B&B. My in-laws were not keen to bike so we decided the pony trap was the best way. I must admit at first I was disappointed to not ride bikes as my husband and I had, 16 years earlier. It turns out we had a better... More

We went to the Inis Mor with the intention of hiring bikes, but the weather was so hot that when we saw the possibility to take a Pony and Trap Tour we jumped at the chance. We were taken by Patrick and one of his 7 horses 'Lady', we were never rushed, and Patrick, who had lived all his life... More

The Island is just 8 miles long but has some really nasty hill sides to ride a bike. I can not walk very well, so when I read some reviews about the Pony and Trap I reserved a tour. Somehow I messed up and Thomas did not know about our reservation, but he jumped into action and picked us up... More

Thomas and his horse Chocolate took us on a tour across the 9 mile island. There is no better way to do it. We got to hear Thomas's stories about the island as he grew up there and how things have changed over the years. We visited the worm hole, Dun Aengus, the Seven Churches and Dun Eochla. Thomas directed... More

After getting off the Aran Island Ferry in Inis Mor we were greeted with a friendly smile by a man named Michael & his beautiful horse Molly. It was a picture perfect day & the last thing I wanted to do was climb on a crowded tour bus with a hoard of other people. Since we are 65+ years old... More
