We did not plan this ahead of our trip to Inishmore, but had looked at the Trip Advisor reviews telling us about Thomas. Fortunately, he was not booked when we reached the island and he was looking for riders. We agreed on a ride and were very happy we did. He takes you past many of the island's ruins, giving... More

I pre-booked this trip by email two days in advance. Very nice people, very nice conversation. At the pier, our driver Tomas waited for us with a sign with my name on it. Pre-booking is highly recommended, because each ferry spits out 200+ people, and many of these want a ride in one of the relatively few traps. No credit... More

My partner and I had a great time touring Inis Mor with Thomas and Johnny Cash (the horse). Although the boat ride was very rough (do sit in back of the boat) and the weather was rainy, Thomas greeted us with a smile and personalized sign at the docks. He provided a clear waterproof tarp for the trap to keep... More

what a stunning and charming way to see the island and feel like you are truly connecting with the locals. Our driver was superb. A real native but versed in sharing just what a tourist would want to know. Highly recommend it!!!

The horse was named after Johnny Cash and was really beautiful and well cared for. Johnny and Tomás met us from the boat. As we had pre-booked Tomás had a card with our name on to help us spot him. We were so glad we booked with Tomás as he was great company and a real gentleman. His knowledge of... More

The pony trap is considerably more expensive than your other options of getting around the island. We had the family's daughter as our guide. She was nice, and the ride was smooth and enjoyable, but not sure if that outweighed the steep cost. We did not know more or less than the people in buses or on bikes, we just... More

With no defined plan for our visit to the island, we were quickly convinced by Thomas that pony and trap was the way to go. A great character with tons of stories about the island and its history, touring with Thomas proved to be a great choice and he was happy to tailor the route/time to best suit us. Thomas... More

We e-mailed Thomas before coming to Inis Mor and booked the trip, and his son Christopher met us at the ferry with the pony (Johnny) and trap. We had a great trip around the Island and Christhopher was a very skilled guide and driver. We can highly reccommend this pony and trap tour to anyone who want to see the... More

After reading the exceptional reviews about Aran Pony and Trap, I booked a tour last week with my family. After finalizing plans via email, Thomas was waiting at the pier when we arrived by ferry. Inis Mór was the last stop on our first visit to Ireland. We visited Dublin and Galway, and loved them both. We were excited to... More

After touring Inishmore by coach, my husband and I wanted to see the little church of St. Enda which was not part of the tour. The horse cart was definitely the way to go and it remains one of my best memories. The beautiful scenery of Inishmore is even better when seen from a horse cart and the driver was... More
