    Great trip - very well timed itinerary. Scenic drive along the Atlantic Way to get to Doolin, where we grabbed ferry to Inisheer. It was quite crowded here and being on this trip actually brought us to front of the ferry line which was clutch, if doing on your own on a sunny day this line can be quite long. Plenty to do in Inisheer - I took a walk up to O'Brien's castle from the port (little steep but easily doable) then walked down to the beach before getting back on the ferry. There was a great small lunch spot (food truck) right on the beach if you go directly from the castle, that had great views of the beach and was actually quite tasty (run by. a woman who lives on the island). If you are trying to get to other spots on the island (shipwreck, lighthouse) would definitely need to either bike or sign up for the horse ride. We only had about two hours so you have to plan wisely - make sure you get back to ferry early to catch an outside seat to get views of cliffs of moher!

    Had a lovely time, Declan was an excellent tour guide and really knew his stuff. Lots of stops along the way to look at scenic views and take pictures. Good value for money considering how much it would cost for a bus from Galway to Clare and the ferry across to the Aran islands. You only get a couple hours on the island so I would recommend to bring a lunch so that you can use the time to explore.

    The trip Jerry took us on was amazing .We enjoyed every second of it. His voice is so soothing. He carries the entire trip . He was very knowledgeable. He has the same energy as Bob Ross ,I’ve never met such a man. He should try ASMR. His tunes were fire as well. He is the ultimate gentleman ,bus driver and storyteller.
