Over the years I have taken several of the jaunting cart rides around the islands, and I have never regretted the trip. It is a lovely way to see the islands. Taxies go to fast and bikes are exhausting. The drivers are wonderful guides and you get a great feel for the island and the people who live there. The... More

Thomas brought so much character, information, and stories during our day trip to the island. We could not have asked for a better guide. He is well versed in the history and local traditions of the island and has a great sense of humor.

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
