Taking this trip was more than worth it! The bus was so efficient, learned so much from our tour guide (Danny) and the driver (Marco) was so efficient. Although it was a packed day with lots to do, it didn’t feel rushed at all. The experience of also meeting other passengers on the bus and getting to know them was amazing. Definitely going on a tour with Finn McCool tours again when i get back!

Omg. Literally the best tour I’ve ever been on! Danny and Marco were the absolute best. Danny knew so much about Irish history and is a fantastic story teller. I literally had chills for some of the history stories. The views were amazing and just overall a great tour. You have to go with Fin McCools tours ❤️

This trip was really great overall. Daniel was pleasant, enjoyable and very informative on Irish culture and history. Definitely a must while visiting Ireland.

Wonderful. Don’t hesitate to book this well planned and timed trip. Guide Sean and Driver Larry were outstanding hosts for this trip leaving nothing to chance.

Great and informative guide and exceptional driver. Danny and Larry were both professional.
