Reviewed June 13, 2012 via mobile

We booked the tour in Galway & got an extra tour of Galway to boot. I think the driver had to kill some time to wait for 2 more passengers but it was a great bonus for us. The driver was full of info on the sites we were seeing as well as where to eat & what to do in Galway too. We mad stops at a castle (don't remember which one but possibly Gleninagh?) & also a rocky beach before getting to the cliffs. We had 2 hours at the cliffs & made a stop at the Matchmaker bar & the Burren. The sound system wasn't too good as the music was playing (country & western music for some strange reason for a while) but the driver was easy to hear & understand. Bus was somewhat older but comfortable. Overall a great trip!

Booked a tour for 11am from Galway, arrived at Galway Coach station with time to spare, bus was on timetables, but never showed up. Went into tour office for refund, no apologies, stupid excuse about American clocks going back. Could have ruined our day, luckily there was another tour with a different company going at 11:30... And it was cheaper!!! Bad bad, avoid these guys.

For students on a budget, this tour was awesome! We walked into the bus station and choose this company because of their willingness to give us a great deal! If you are looking for a great price and a nice day trip to the cliffs.... book away. Your best option is to book the trip when you get there :) cheers

We booked a tour of the Burren and the Cliffs of Moher with O"Neachtain tours a great decision, we were picked up at our hotel and changed coaches at the bus station, we met our driver PJ who from the very outset was having the craic and making everyone so at home, off we went at 10 30, all the way through the beautiful Burren, we had fantastic commentary, many photo stops with all the local information, and gossip from PJ, a stop for lunch at Fitzes in Doolin, on then to the fantastic cliffs, what a place, we had an hour and a half to explore this wonderful wonder of the world, we left for Galway with more photo stops at some beautiful scenery, PJ then entertained us all with some amazing banjo playing, everyone on the coach had a great day we all mixed together well,, Spanish, American, Italian, Chinese, and of course the Irish,,see my other review on this trip, attractions , thanks again to PJ, Steve and Colleen, Gerry,, Mary.

We were not happy with this tour, luckily we had done a fabulous tour in Edinbough called the Hairy Coo that we could compare this to. I just feel bad for the other people on the tour that had only a weekend to experience as much of Ireland as possible and this is what they got.

We did get a good deal but I guess you get what you pay for. The driver didn't talk to us but maybe three times, instead he put on a movie and told us to stop talking. We originally got on this particular bus because they promised 2 hours at the cliffs of moher which we only had one, we didn't go to the poulnabrone Dolmen, Kilfenora, and the other things including the Arean Islands were never pointed out. The icing on the cake was that I think he took us on his errands with him... But we did stop at two lunch spots in a row for a total of 1.5 hrs for some unknown reason.

Please don't take this bus unless you are prepared to only be taken to the cliff of moher for one hour with nothing in between. I wish I had read the reviews before taking this tour!
