We looked at several options for getting to the Aran Islands. We could have taken the ferry and then tried our luck with a tour on the island, but this tour was recommended to us, and it was very worthwhile. Michael is an excellent guide, and his love for his home is evident. Our first major stop was at Dun... More

i was encouraged to visit Inishmore to see a part of Ireland that reflects a way of life that was/is different to to the mainland. It also has it's ancient ruins, long history of interesting encounters and towns still surviving in this harsh and beautiful environment. Michael Faherty was able to make the story of this island come alive because... More

He told us lots of interesting things on the way to the Rossavel harbour, where we got on the ferry, and he drove us around the isle sharing lots of useful and interesting facts about the island. He... More

I originally was planning on hiking along the island of Inis Mor myself but met a woman on the ferry who recommended Michael Faherty. I decided to do the tour because I made fast friends with people also doing the tour. As well, Michael was very nice and accommodating. It really was a good decision because Michael knows a lot...

Michael was the tour guide and was a great source of information about the islands. The weather was a rainy but the views from Dun Aengus were beautiful!!... More

My mom and I originally took this tour with the idea that we would go off on our own by bike. Can I just say, staying on the bus was the best idea we had during our Ireland trip. We loved Michael's tour: Dun Aengus, the Seven Churches, the beaches and so much more! Don't miss out on lunch at... More

I got a very nice experience this summer in the Aran Islands with the day tour of this company. The guide was Michael, a very kind native of the islands. He leads the group on a bus by Inishmor, the biggest island, explaining the places, History and traditions. There is spare time to take a walk or a cycling by... More

When friends and relatives will ask us for suggestions on the west coast of Ireland, we will surely recommend the Aran island tour. Not only, we will immediately add: but you HAVE to do it with Faherty Tours. Why? Because the tour we had today was managed perfectly in each and every single thing starting from the moment they picked... More
