We had a great day with Rory for the Kerry & Skellig Ring tour. The tour was extremely informative and we had lots of great stops with amazing views and photo opportunities! It was by far one of our best vacation days and an amazing memory of our trip!

Colm gave us a customized four day tour of the Ring of Kerry and Skellig Ring. Three examples: we mentioned we were interested in Irish History, and he took us to see important historical sites. We told him we wanted to see even more ancient sites, and he brought us to four ring forts, he went brought us through miserable drizzle to see ancient carvings. We said we enjoyed beautiful landscapes and he took us through a special access gate to see the Cliffs of Moor.

While nobody can take credit for the weather, when we weren't able to go on the Skellig Michael boat as scheduled (high winds) he NOT ONLY found us great things to do, BUT ALSO, he called the boat operator and worked every angle to help us get to the island the next day. It was a huge highlight.

Plus, we didn't have to worry about driving, about finding places to eat, he took care of us like we were family.

Despite some foul weather, we enjoyed our day trip with Colin very much. Colin picked us up at our hotel and made up for the bad weather by showing us some out of the way places and engaging us in conversation and answering all of our questions about Ireland. In addition he gave us many valuable tips on the remainder of our stay in Ireland. Rory was helpful and flexible in setting up our trip.

We were 4 Americans, 1st time in the Dingle area...and enjoyed a 2-day private tour of the Ring of Kerry & the Skellig Peninsula with Rory as our driver. One day perfect weather - one day a bit if rain...but not a problem. In addition to the amazing overview & detail of the area, Rory was especially considerate of each passenger's specific interests. When there was limited time (there was a LOT to see & do), we took a vote to decide where to focus our efforts. Again, everyone in our group was extremely pleased with Rory's tour and our expectations were clearly exceeded!

Paudie was our driver and he was absolutely wonderful!! First time for my Aunt, Uncle and I traveling the Ring of Kerry. Paudie was very knowledgeable and stopped whenever we wanted to take a picture! We enjoyed lunch, the Skellig Chocolate Factory and all the incredible sites! The van was clean, and the entire experience was very professional. Paudie picked us up at our Bnb in Kerry and dropped us off at our bnb in Dingle. It was my families favorite tour from the entire trip- I highly recommend it!

Our tour guide, Paudie, was wonderful! We were a family of five including three teenagers. He picked us up at our hotel right on time and made sure that we had a great day. Our stops included Ladies View (breathtaking vista), Skellig Chocolate Factory (you can watch the process and plenty of tastings!). We had a great lunch at a restaurant Paudie recommended. We saw areas where scenes from Star Wars were shot, had plenty of opportunities to take pictures and wonder around. Paudie was really funny and informative and took us to places that we surely would have missed on our own. We HIGHLY recommend this tour!

Our family of 5 enjoyed two exceptional tours with Paudie. We were home based in Dingle and had a four hour tour of the Dingle peninsula as well as a full day tour of the Ring of Kerry. We enjoyed the backroads of the area and limited views of massive tour buses. Paudie is a native to the area and makes you feel like family visiting rather than a tourist. This is an extremely professional operation and Rory helped coordinate our best experiences of our trip of a lifetime. Many thanks! Con, Russ, Amanda, Ray and Jody

Our (myself and a few family members) recent visit to Ireland was one of the best gifts I have ever given myself. I felt a fresh connection to my ancestors and rejuvenated my inner spirit far beyond my expectations. Our tour guide for this 4 day private tour was Colm Bambury, a true historian and a man passionate about his beloved Ireland. I should have educated myself before the tour; I did not, but was not only enriched by the beauty of this land, but well informed of the history of these hope filled people and the ancient ruins and their meaning/s in Ireland's history.I felt the mournful longing of an early suffering people and saw the joy they have held close in their hears for many years hence. Colm is very personable and gets to know a little about each visitor and then treats you to a delight he seems to know you will enjoy. I found his knowledge and love of the land far beyond my expectations and very gratifying. Colm also saw to it that our group was well fed at the best for the day and made reservations for us. I would repeat this tour and do another any time with Colm as he greatly stirred my desire to know more of the land and people who were my beginning. I cannot describe in words the richness of this experience and the personal lasting joy it left in my heart. Mary Kearney Michalski

Excellent tour and commentary. We definitely recommend doing this since it took all the stress of driving out with the benefits of learning about the history
