A Recent Review of this tour

Liam is not only an exceptional tour guide but likewise as a person. I changed the itinerary but it was no problem for him. He took my wife and I down to West Cork and we had a whale of a time. Nothing was too much trouble. A restaurant, a pub, sightseeing he willingly obliged while all the time keeping his beady eye on his watch so we had time enough to make our cruise ship before it sailed. The weather was not the best but that is no fault of Liam. After all it is Ireland. All in all a great day out.
