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

While on the Aran Islands we chose to hire a pony trap. The driver Donald O'Faherty and his horse Silver were second to none. We saw lots of the local scenery with a nice long break to enjoy a cup of tea and a bite to eat. Donald is very friendly and knowledgeable as he grew up in the local... More

We paired a pony trap ride with bicycle rentals and it worked out perfectly. Some in our group rode the bicycles while we rode in the trap with a baby. Chris, our guide, took us to some beautiful places. Visiting Inish Mor was like taking a step back in time. The many stone walls and vintage buildings are beautiful. Chris... More

After visiting, I would opine that pony and trap is (by far) the best way to see the island and Thomas is an excellent guide. He has a great sense of humor and was a wonderful tour guide – being native to the island. He gave us both traditional history and personal insights on the island - taking us to... More
