The tour was very well organised, the train and coach trips very comfortable and the Drymond B&B, which was cosy and very clean, gave us a wonderful taste of Irish hospitality. We had great views of the stunning scenery and landscape of the South-west of Ireland and all admissions to points of interest such as Blarney Castle, Cliffs of Moher, etc were efficiently taken care of with adequate provisions for rest within the scheduled times. The piece de resistance of the whole tour was our guide, Jonathan Beaumont. He gave us the best possible insight of Irish hospitality and welcome, he was professional and attentive to everyone, and imparted such in-depth and accurate historical facts of Ireland especially about the Great Famine. He also gave us interesting insights into the folklore and superstitions of Ireland such as the Fairy Tree :) . Our enjoyment of the whole tour was enhanced by this very special tour guide - thank you Jonathan! Doreen and Paule from Seychelles.
To be honest I did enjoy the activity - althogh not the cruise part, because the weather was terrible and I was sick the whole time. The time spent on the island was lovely, the scenery is charming. The only thing I lacked was kind of a program - u see I thought there was a guided tour already for us on the island - and I found out last minute that we are on our own on the island - nevertheless it was quite lovely. P.S. big shoutout to the crew on the ship - they were soo professional, I definitely admired how calm they stayed when someone threw up on the floor or how professional they offered their assisstance. Big thanks to them!
Really nice experience, the driver was incredible. The only problem is that there was not enough time on the national park. I, obviously, went to the peak of Diamond Hill, but takes one hour to arrive there and I literally took three photos and had to run the way back to not be late (and even like that I was about 5 minutes late).
Macdara of Lally tours was an excellent tour guide, immensely knowledgeable of the area and history of Connemara. A highly recommended tour and tour guide.
That was great I think the boats needs more open space because it was too hard to take photos especially at cliff of Moher.
