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

Go to the Aran Islands. If Ireland is the most magical, beautiful, and friendliest place on earth (which I believe it is) then the Aran Islands are the epitome of it all. Don't think about it, JUST GO THERE. You should try to stay overnight if you can. Either way, you must have a tour with Thomas. I demand it.

We had a wonderful trip exploring the major attractions of Inis Mor, though it was a little bit limited by what could be access with the pony and trap. There was some walking to get to the actual sites. I didn't mind, but it was a bit too much for my daughter. Thomas was very, very nice and very accommodating.... More

Travel in the fashion of the Native Irish. This is a marvelous way to see the Island and visit with a local member of the country side. The nostalgic travel will show you the Island at a pace you can enjoy. Get a flavor for the culture,history, and true people as you travel with a local. This is not a... More

After a very bumpy ferry ride-make sure you take some type of seasickness medicine. The one from CVS was great. Once we landed our guide took us to the restaurant and waited till we were finished and then our daughters took the bikes and we finished the rest of the day in the pony and trap. Aran Islands is step... More
