“Connemara & Cong Tour”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 25, 2012

We try to shy away from the touristy group type things, but this trip was suggested to us as a good way to take in some of the sights near Galway. The stops included the Errily Friary, Cong Village, scenic views of Lough Nafooey, and Kylemore Abbey. Well worth the €25.
The driver Mike D. was quite knowledgeable about the history of all of the sights and attractions, and gave us plenty of local insight as well.

“Day Trip to Cliff of Moher”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 22, 2012

We took a day trip with Galway Tour Company while visiting Galway earlier in November. Our driver and tour guide was Paul. With many stops along the way, as well as a pub lunch, our day was excellent from start to finish. Paul was engaging and knowledgeable. I would definitely recommend the Galway Tour Company for any tours they offer.

“Brilliant way to see the west coast”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 22, 2012

Got the coach early in Dublin and went across to Galway where the driver changed over. The guide for the day was Amen who was not only extremely knowledgeable but very funny. The tour allowed a lot to be seen in one day. The round trip from Dublin makes for a very long day (16 hours or so) so I arranged to stay in Galway that night then get the return coach the following evening which was very kind of them to agree to. Don't bother booking with anyone else, they're probably the best.

“Cliffs of Moher Tour from Galway-Incredible!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 21, 2012

Didn't think taking a day trip to the Cliffs of Moher could get any better, but our awesome tour guide, and all of the other places we visited on the way made it one of the best travel days I've spent! Our guide was hilarious, knowledgeable and eager to tell us all there was to know about the history and folklore of the area. Normally I don't enjoy bus tours with big groups, but in this case I couldn't have had a better experience and wouldn't have wanted to do the Cliffs without a guide. So great, inexpensive, and worth much more than they make you pay!

“Connemara & Cong Tour - Amazing!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 17, 2012

For me, this tour was a combination of transportation from Dublin to Galway and site-seeing. Our tour guide was so informative, and clearly loved Galway County. He took us to a few places that were not even part of the tour. I even got to feed apples to a Connemara pony!

Connemara is one of the prettiest places I've ever seen, and Kylemore Abbey has a fascinating love story in its history. The gift shop at the abbey is also very nice, with many things handmade by the nuns. Also, the cafe there has vegetarian options.

Cong was nice, although we didn't get a ton of time there...but overall, that didn't matter much to me, as its main attraction is having been the place where the John Wayne movie "The Quiet Man" was filmed, whereas in my view, Connemara had so much more to experience.
