Date: Sep 30/18

Ann O's services were everything my wife and I had hoped and more. Her help in experiencing SW Ireland began with a suggested itinerary. Then, each day, she smoothly adjusted routes and activities to our preferences, and to our pace. Ann's many connections got us "in" as we experienced the region in all its amazing beauty and history. Her knowledge made it educational; her personal stories made the region's people real. She had a nice van & drove safely. In conclusion, it was a fun, relaxing 4-days.

Recently we had the pleasure of being driven around the Ring of Kerry and the Ring of Skellig by Annie. There were 4 of us in the vehicle and we all enjoyed the tour very much, can't imagine doing it without Annie at the wheel. She had a wonderful way about her, knew all the places to stop and best of all knew how to navigate those narrow roads. We would not have enjoyed driving it on our own. Many thanks to Annie for a wonderful day!

Ann was FABULOUS! She picked our group of nine up at the cruise terminal and took us straight to Blarney Castle. She was amazing with my 79 year old mother who was in a wheelchair offering to help push her around and get her jacket from the van when she was cold. Ann made reservations for lunch for us, showed us a fort and church. Ann was personable, fun, informative, and had a great sense of humor. The three teenagers and 22 year old with us enjoyed Ann as well. GREAT tour and WONDERFUL guide.

Ann O Doud is a friendly, warm, fun guide with unlimited knowledge of the area having grown up there. She tailor-made our tour to fit our desires, plus gave suggestions to see other attractions we wouldn't have thought of that highly increased our enjoyment. She "read" us very well. It was a thoroughly marvelous day! We highly recommend her.

Date: Jun 6/18

Unfortunately our driver was very nervous about getting us back to our ship on time, and we were not able to do the Blarney Stone or even see the castle, in the end we had plenty of time to spare and she cut our trip one hour short to get us back to the ship one hour ahead of time than we needed to be. This trip was planned months in advance and if there was any nervousness about the timing, that should have been discussed with his prior and we would have made other arrangements

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: At Blarney Castle there was an opportunity to visit the Castle and Woolen Mills. Then a drive through the rolling hills of Cork to the fishing village of Kinsale, lunch,free time.In Cobh a visit to St Coleman's Cathedral and free time as requested. I did appreciate that your party expressed to me that they enjoyed their day and also offered their apologies too. In turn, I also apologize that I did not express my concerns over the time sooner.I will take this feedback on board for the future.Regards Annie

We enjoyed our tour with Annie O. She was very accommodating and planned the order of our touring so we could best avoid waiting in lines at Blarney castle. My only recommendation would be to install a headset microphone so that she could speak directly into it so that those in the back of the van would not lose any of her presentation. Annie was great!

We had some issues with traffic causing Ann to get to us (my wife & I) a bit later than expected, and we waited in the rain by the Cobh port for a bit. But once we got all settled in, we had a great time with Ann. Blarney Castle, Kinsale, Charles Fort, lunch, shopping! Ann was so friendly and fun and very willing to do whatever we felt like doing. She helped make our brief visit to Ireland memorable.

Ann was an outstanding tour guide for our first trip to Ireland! We were traveling as a family of four (two adults and two teenagers) and she helped plan a 3 day itinerary that appealed to everyone, especially the Star Wars fans. She suggested local sites along the way that we would not have known about and made sure to keep the pace as slow or fast as we wanted. As a local of the region her whole life, she knew the roads and area and we were able to see much more than if we had tried to do it on our own.

Thank you to Gerard S. for helping me plan a "custom made" tour, including the special interests of everyone. Barry, our first guide, was a wealth of historical information and we loved his commentary. He even found a village that we can trace our ancestors to! Ann O, our 2nd driver, kept us entertained with her quick wit, Gaelic lessons and a visit to her home village!

I am a regular user of Tours by Locals so I have had my share of really good guides and some maybe not so. Ann was one of my very best and favorite guides. First she was very accommodating of our group of 8 with young kids and grandparents. She really made it just perfect for us all. Most importantly she is very knowledgeable about Ireland especially the two areas we saw of Cork and Kerry County. She went above and beyond in making sure we had information and suggestions outside our days with her.

Ann O is the best Ireland Tour Guide you will find. Her heart for Ireland, people, children, and us as a couple was so wonderful. Tour details and timing perfectly matches up with her kind heart that we shared. We were blessed with Ann as she took us in and around Ireland, giving us great insights, taking us places a local would only know such as places to eat, culture, adventures, and night excursions after full days to relax as a couple. She was Ireland, and should make Ireland proud to have her heart.

Ann's tour of Cork/Cobh was thoroughly satisfying, giving just the right amount of historical information coupled with insightful glimpses into the cultural and social aspects. She was sensitive to the limitations of our age and health and accommodating in every way, even taking us to a bank.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your kind review. It was a pleasure to tour with you all. I hope you enjoyed the rest of your holiday and I hope some day you will visit Ireland again. Best wishes. Ann.

Ann was the perfect guide. She met us on time at our designated spot with comfy and spacious transportation. We were blessed with a sunny day and Ann made the most of it with her chosen itinerary (which we could modify, if requested) and commentary. The day was delightful (great suggestion for lunch in Kinsale!) and I would recommend Ann to all who are lucky enough to visit Ireland.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your kind review, it was great to tour with you. I hope I see you all soon again here in Ireland . Best wishes to you all. Ann

Tour: Dingle and Ring of Kerry, Doolin, Clare, Ireland
Date: Apr 8/15

Ann was a great tour guide. We took a two day tour of the Ring of Kerry and the Dingle Peninsula. We were a party of 10 that included four grandparents and four kids 10-22 years old. She did a masterful job of customizing the trips for the entire group. There were plenty of breaks, stops, entertainment, discussions, laughter...Ann is a very considerate, capable and compassionate guide. We thoroughly enjoyed our two day trip and would highly recommend Ann to anyone looking for a local Kerry guide.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your review. You were a great group to tour with and thank you for giving me the opportunity to tour with you all. Ann

Ann is definitely a committed professional. While there was snow and ice the night before the tour, and gale force winds during the day, she none the less showed up on time and offered great suggestions, adapted to the weather, and provided an entertaining and engaging tour. We highly recommend her.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your review. The weather wasn't on our side but we had a great day anyway. Best wishes Ann.

My three days with Ann exploring Dingle/Killarney/Ring of Kerry was probably one of the best tours I have ever enjoyed. Her intimate knowledge of the area and her obvious delight in sharing it, and her caring and professional manner, made the tour an exceptional experience. It was a private tour since I was unable to find a group tour to fit my itinerary and I am so very happy that I made that choice. I will definitely be recommending Ann to others!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your kind review. It was my pleasure to tour and share the hidden highways and byways of Kerry with you. Kind Regards Ann.

Ann was a total delight to have as a tour guide. She went out of her way to give us a good time, adjusted the itinerary for the weather conditions and at the same time taking us to remote and beautiful locations. She was funny, playful, helpful and a safe driver. Overall, we had a truly wonderful day with her!
