We had an amazing day trip with our guide Jerry and our driver John. Actually we were the only ones showing up on that day which made it a very intimate and insightful experience. Jerry was very knowledgeable and went into a lot of detail about the history behind the sites we visited. He went above and beyond taking very nice pictures of us at some hidden gem spots. We had a crack riding with him and John, who drove comfortably, expertly and safely. It really deepened our experience of Ireland and I would recommend the trip to anyone.

I booked the day tour to Connemara and the national Park/Diamond hill. John B was an excellent tour guide. As our group was small and the abbey closed he made extra stops for us and he had so many wonderful facts and stories about the area. The tour felt like we were on a trip with a friend or family member- he knows all the good spots to stop for photos. I would recommend this tour with extra time at the national park for anyone who loves the outdoors, hiking and being in the peace of nature. I walked the blue trail at the park and had plenty of time for a delicious meal of lamb stew at Veldons and to pop into the local bookstore. A wonderful day all around.

Wow! Completely blown away by our day trip from Galway to the Cliffs of Moher via Kinvara, Ballyvaughan, Doolin. Our driver and tour guide was John B. His knowledge of the area, great story telling, sense of humour, wit, charm, warmth and friendliness made the experience that extra bit special and for that reason alone we are planning our next trip with Lally tours! The customer service and professionalism shown to us was simply outstanding. Everything is planned impeccably with Lally's - (e.g., Lally's provide a menu for lunch in a local venue. The driver will call in your order, in advance, which takes the hassle and stress away especially during a busy lunch hour). The tour is certainly value for money, the coach was impeccably clean and comfortable with a w.c. onboard. It really was one of the best tours we've experienced internationally. Thank you John B and team. Looking forward to the next one!

Book at your own risk! I reserved a "Cliffs Cruise, Aran Islands & Connemara in One Day" tour on 23rd May for 1 June, via getyourguide. I chose the "reserve now, pay later option" so on payment on 30th May, received several confirmation emails from Lally tours, with the receipt, voucher and other confirmation details. However, the evening before the tour tomorrow, I have received an email informing me that the tour will not take place because they did not reach the minimum number required. I booked this trip because I relied on a previous review where there was only 1 participant. I went back to the advertisement, confirmations, voucher and receipt to re-read any fine print I may have missed on the "minimum numbers" but there is none at all. Very inconvenient to do this too late in the day when I cannot even make alternative arrangements. What a way to mess up visitors' plans!

Thank you for your Review and Feedback, I can understand your frustration with a tour cancelation the day beforehand, this was to allow as much time as possible for additional booking to arrive in. Trust me, the decision to cancel a tour is never the 'go to' option, we would much prefer have guest out on tour enjoying the place we call home. Regarding the previous guest that reviewed they travelled solo on one of these tours, this may be true, it can happen that operational issues such as staff training require that we operate with one or even zero guests in some situations. However the points you have raised will go towards us developing and improving our policies and communication going forward. Thank you for taking the time. Regards John

We had the most amazing tour! Although we were disappointed that the Cliffs of Moher had closed due to severe weather, we couldn’t have asked for more. John B was really fantastic! His knowledge and commentary was absolutely wonderful. The company gave us entrance to the caves because the Cliffs were closed, which was an added bonus. John B went out of his way to give us the most he could with extra stops, lost of commentary and lots of attention. Our lunch stop was great! We actually stopped and had quite a show from the Wild Atlantic and could see the Cliffs in the background. So happy we chose Lally Tours as many others had cancelled.
Thank you for a most wonderful day!!!

Excellent day trip of Cliffs of Moher and The Burren
We were very lucky to have John B. as our driver/tour guide. John had everything planned to maximise our day . We saw so much , castle ruins, the Alliwee caves , corkscrew hill , the Cliffs of Moher and drove all along the wild Atlantic Way .we had lunch in a fab local pub which uses only local produce/ suppliers, which is great for the area.
John B. has huge knowledge on the whole area we travelled through which he imparted in an interesting and fun way . He has a great sense of humour and it never felt like a history or geography lesson !!
John B. Is clearly passionate about what he does and it shows, and although he does this tour all the time he comes across with the enthusiasm as if it were his first day doing it .
Busses modern and clean and windows clear with no printed logos on the outside, to ensure a clear view . Couldn’t recommend Lally Tours highly enough and will definitely do another Lally tour when in Galway again .

I booked this last minute on a Friday in January. The tour was the Cliffs of Moher and the Burren. What an amazing way to spend a Sunday in Ireland. John B, our guide, displayed a wealth of knowledge about everything we layed eyes on. He was also an extremely safe and conscientious driver. That made it possible for me to actually relax and enjoy his narration of our tour. There was an issue with our pre-ordered lunch, and John B stopped eating his own lunch to straighten it out. I ended up getting the meal for free. He also gave a great recommendation for a local pub that was more for locals. I won’t divulge the name to protect its location. I highly recommend Lally tours to anyone and everyone.

Excellent tour! Our guide John made the whole drive engaging, educational and fun for the full 8 hours. John was incredible navigating the roads and we felt very safe in his care. We were always perfectly on schedule with the many stops, and even had time for an extra stop for more jaw dropping views and photos. Also appreciated his knowledge and reminder to respect the local landscape, wildlife and communities and step lightly on the land.

Although we had some mechanical problems on the bus and bad weather, our driver John did a great job keeping things moving forward and adjusting on the fly. We made an improvised stop at a cave while the bus was serviced and made the best of things. We have used Lally before for other trips with students and they have always been punctual, helpful and efficient.

My wife & I travelled with Michael of Lally Tours to Kylemore Abbey and the breathtaking scenery of Connemara on the 20th Febuary. Because of the likelyhood that the weather would be very poor, only 2 other guests joined us In a mini bus..In fact, the weather turned out to be good. The visit to the Abbey , the walled gardens and the small church located along a scenic lake side walk was very special, and memorable.
Our trip was made even more special because of Michael, our erudite and helpful driver and guide.
We would recommend this beautiful day tour

Hi Michael & Mary, Thank you for taking the time to leave us such a lovely written review! We are delighted you had such a good time with Micheal in Connemara, and we will be sure to pass along your compliments. The weather has not been pleasant the past while now so it was great that it turned out okay for the tour. Thank you once again for your kind words and for recommending Lally Tours. Safe travels, Dónal
