While Lally did a good job of getting us around the the driver, John, lives in Connemara, there just isn't anything there that is exceptional or special. The only bad part was that on the trip back to Galway, we encountered heavy traffic. It was a Friday at 6PM so I doubt it was unusual but the driver had no... More

We booked with this company through Viator. We were picked up and taken to a central bus station. This was disorganized and time consuming. From pick up time to departure time was around 2.5 hours. We booked with another company out of Dublin for another tour and the motor coach for the tour, and the guide and driver; were the... More

Hi Eventgal, Could you please provide a little more information so I can look into this matter further? Do you remember the date of your tour, a description of the bus, or the driver's name? We offer a collection service to all of our guests. This service begins approximately 1 hour prior to the tours departure. This allows time to... More

We wanted to ride this bus from Salthill to Galway and then actually hop on and hop off to see what we wanted to see in depth. First--their pick up places are not marked except the one at the tour origination in Galway. Second, the bus does not actually stop at any of the advertised stops unless someone is waiting... More

We've done Hop On - Hop Off bus tours in other cities, but in Galway, this is hardly worth the money. First, Galways itself doesn't really lend itself to Hop On - Hop Off. Several of the so-called "stops" weren't stops at all. Typically, at each marked stop on the map, the tour guide (or audio tape) would announce the... More

We were in galway for a few days and rather than rent a car and deal with driving on the wrong side, we took several Lally's tours. They were always on time, the drivers were fun and efficient. We were pleased with our days spent with them.

Darren was our tour guide and he was fantastic. The tour itself was well run and we got to see lots and get heaps of good pictures. I would 10/10 recommend this tour. They even picked us up from our hostel :) made to feel very welcome.

Had a great day with our driver and guide. Moher was amazing. Darren was very knowledgeable, loved his sense of humor, and his recommendations have been right on.

Combining the role of driver and tour guide is never a good experience - this one is no different. I joined their Connemara tour last Sunday and it was less than impressive. The guide did not really introduce much, or at most of elementary level, of the places we visit. Not much stories nor local insight to be heard from... More

Unfortunately, I am not able to rave about the great tour that Lally Tours took my friends and me on, or about the amazing staff on the tour. Rather, what I can do is talk about how incredible this organization has been in the face of some pretty difficult times myself and my friends had this weekend. We were set... More

The very friendly driver kindly waited for us while half of my group were in a shop getting drinks. We were lucky enough to catch a sunny day so sat on top of the hop-on hop-off tour bus. The tour guide / driver was full of facts and info about the beautiful city of Galway, but could have done with... More

Hi Nick, Thank you for submitting a review. We're happy to hear you enjoyed the tour and thank you for letting us know about the volume issue in the back of the coach. This is the first we have heard of the issue, but will have the mechanics triple check to ensure all speakers are working properly throughout the bus.... More
