We loved our day tour with Michael great sense of humor! Loved how he is born and raised on Inismór, it gave the tour flavor. Overall our trip was pretty great!!

“Top Notch Tour!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 5, 2013

Are you looking for a fun tour of the largest Aran island? Then this is the tour for you. We booked this through the TI office upon arriving in Galway and did not regret a minute of it. Micheal brings a unique perspective to this tour as he is FROM this island! He knows everyone and everything about this unique treasure. He is funny and passionate about this tour and he gives it his all. You do not feel rushed on this tour at all.
Start? At the bus terminal at 9:20. Arrived at island? 11:30am. Ferry was ice smooth!
You have 2 hours at the magnificent fort and it is plenty of time for pictures and a bite to eat afterwards. You then see the seven churches and the seal colony as well. For 45 euro, you get a problem free day from start to finish. Honestly, it may be just a few euros less to do it on your own...but more of a headache. Take this tour...it shines in comparison with others on the island.
Thanks again Mike!

“A fantastic day trip”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 4, 2013

This was by far the best day we had in Ireland. Michael picked us up at our B&B, and was very entertaining and informative the entire day. The trip included pick up, ferry to and from Inishmore, and the actual tour around the island for 45 euros. We chose to go on the bus with Michael so we could have more insight into the island's history - I highly recommend this, as the cyclists looked extremely lost and didn't see nearly as much as we did! We stopped at several places to look around including the beaches, the coast near the lighthouse, and Dun Aengus where we ate at a lovely cafe. If you have time, try to stay overnight on the big island so you can get a better idea of what it's like. We left late afternoon, but we wished we had stayed! If you're going to the Aran Islands, you must book Faherty Day Tours!

“Aran Islands day trip”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 2, 2013

This tour was a great experience, and a great value. The tour included pick up at our B&B, transfer to the ferry in Rossaveal, the ferry trip, and a guided bus tour around the island. As an Aran Islands native, the guide had great insight into the daily life on the island. We saw so much, but it didn't feel rushed. We had some time on our own, too, to explore Dun Aengus, which was nice. All in all - great experience that I would highly recommend.
