If you'd like an authentic experience, relaxed and charming, go with the Aran Pony and Trap. My husband and I decided to go with a smaller wagon which accommodated the two of us plus the driver. It was lovely. The owner/driver, Patrick Connelly and his horse Brownie, gave us lots of attention and shared lots of information and stories about... More

I hadn't really planned what I would do once hopping off the ferry and now I'm really glad that I didn't pre-book something. I was immediately met by the biggest smile and warm welcome when Thomas came and greeted me. I was introduced to his two horses, Bonnie and Clyde and hopped onto the cart alongside a lovely family of... More

I think our guide was named Sean although the other fellow in the cart with us thought it was John. His horse was named Bob Marley. We were offered wonderfully warm blankets for the ride. Great guy who made the trip very fun, and pointed out lots of sights and history of the island. He rotates between driving the traps... More

If you are in Galway for more than one day, take the ferry to Inis Mor, in the Aran Islands, then hire a pony and trap (drivers will be waiting for you when you exit the ferry). We had heard that the Aran Islands were stunning, and Padraic and his horse Lady helped us see and understand what the fuss... More

I arrived at Inishmore with the initial plan to rent a bike - though I hadn't ridden in years. But, it was cold and windy, with intermittent rain . . . not ideal cycling weather. Bus tours are not for me. . . so it was either WALK or go with a pony and trap. Unfortunately, as I was alone,... More

Wasn't sure what we were going to experience on this island, but met Thomas on the dock and was immediately impressed. He took us on a 4 hour excursion around the island explaining the geography, history, and natural wonders that only a native who grew up on the island could offer! Thomas was very accommodating----answering all of questions, stopping wherever... More

We loved our day with Thomas! This is the best way to see the island. Originally, we were going to rent bikes but decided not to because of narrow and somewhat bumpy roads. By doing this tour, we gained local knowledge (would not have known about the Worm Hole otherwise), and had a delightful time with our conversations while traveling... More

So glad we took the time to go to Inishmore and that we pre-booked the pony and trap tour. Our guide was great and we could take as much time as we liked at each stop.

We toured the Aran Islands (and stayed) with the folks at Seacrest B & B. While the Island itself is a bit barren and windswept, the folks at SeaCrest (Christopher and his parents) made the stay outstanding. We were treated to a very reasonably priced horse & buggy trip around the island, with plenty of time to see the sights.... More
