Overview
More
Take a trip with Thomas Faherty around the island in a pony & trap, and see the beautiful sights of Inis Mor the old-fashioned way. Pony & trap tours are a family tradition and date back to the 1940s. You will hear wonderful stories and interesting island histories, all while taking in the amazing surroundings at a picture friendly pace. Stops are made along the route to let visitors explore. You can look for seals during low tide and hike up to Dun Aonghasa. But what makes Thomas and his tours so different? He likes to point out what other tourists may never get the chance to see, or have even heard about. Like the wormhole. No matter the length of your stay on the island, whether you wish for a private tour for two or an afternoon jaunt for ten, a tour can be arranged. that accommodates to your plans.

Niamh took us on a tour of the Island and she shared her love of the land and of the island with us. Truly the best way to learn about a place is from someone who loves it!

This is by far the best way to get around the island. I am not in peak physical shape, not out of shape either, and believe the bike tours would have left me too tired to enjoy anything. The trap and pony tour however, is...More

Easily fit that many. The 2 year old may not appreciate the great scenery and the walk up to Dún Aonghasa would be quite tiring.
