A Recent Review of this tour

Tour far exceeds expectations. 4 days in west Ireland, expertly led by guide Martina. If weather was off a bit, she found a marvelous cave to explore. Ever flexible, she followed the tour plan, but digressed whenever it suited us. With expert local knowledge, she found the friendliest and most delicious pubs and cafes. Included all the big 'must sees', but also less known gems, like Kilkeen, a sacred well and tiny church of the ark. Friendly and intuitive, she seemed to grasp precisely what was needed.
