Mary and our tour were both wonderful. Mary went above and beyond, making sure we were able to get a landing on Skellig Michael- a difficult feat so close to the date. The entire day she coordinated was peppered with informative and interesting details about the areas we drove through, and on more than one occasion she easily navigated new requests. The details of our tour were executed flawlessly. We highly recommend this tour and Mary who was outstanding in every way.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Michael & Heather Thank you for your very kind and wonderful Review. It was a perfect day for a landing trip to Skellig Michael and I am delighted you enjoyed it so much. Best Regards Mary.

Mary is a outgoing, considerate, good-humored, and knowledgeable guide. Due to safety maintenance on Skellig Michael, we were unfortunately not able to land the day of our tour. Nevertheless, Mary arranged for us to take a boat to see The Skellig Rocks without the landing. Wow, what a beautiful experience! Mary went above and beyond to show us the spectacular views of the Ring of Kerry and Valencia Island. Thank you Mary for our amazing day!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Katherine, Thank you for your brilliant Review, I am glad you got to do the boat trip around The Skelligs and that you enjoyed it. Unfortunately the boats have still not yet managed to do the landing tours but hopefully this week they should be successful. It is a very unique place to visit and hopefully you will do the landing tour in time to come.
We had a lovely day with Mary. She is very knowledgeable and was very pleasant. She adapts to whatever your interests are and our day with her will definitely remain the highlight of our trip to Ireland.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Emilie for your great review. I am glad you enjoyed your excursion to Skellig Michael and you got to the top and saw the world heritage UNESCO site - the Monastery, it is a very special place. Enjoy the rest of your vacation in Ireland, there is so much to do and see.

Mary was outstanding. We were unable to complete the Skellig Michael landing tour due to inclement weather, but Mary went out of her way to ensure were had a great time. She is knowledgeable and funny and we highly recommend her!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much Jini for your great Review. It was unfortunate you were unable to go to Skellig Michael on this occasion but perhaps you will come back another time and the landings will be achieved with better weather.

Mary, our guide, picked us up promptly at our hotel in Killarney. She immediately made us feel so comfortable. We felt like we were traveling with a family member. She has a wonderful personality and we enjoyed her company. She was very attentive & informative. We first went to Skellig Island and then through the Ring of Kerry. We had a great time with her. The route she took was breathtaking. Our day with Mary made our trip so much more memorable. Thanks, Mary!!! ---Carolyn, Lori & Annie
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for your fantastic review. I am glad you had a great day and I really enjoyed your wonderful company and showing you our wonderful country. Best Regards Mary.

Allison LangloisUnited States
Mary was outstanding. She made sure we got on Skellig's Island and showed us around the Ring of Kerry and Killarney National Park. This was the highlight of our whole trip. She made sure to stay in touch with us regarding weather conditions and sent the appropriate amount of communication. She was an excellent tour guide. We firmly believe that we wouldn't have made it to Skellig's if it wasn't for Mary.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your wonderful Review. A visit to The Skelligs is truly a wonderful and enlightening experience and I am so glad you enjoyed the day and the boat trip.

My wife and I did the Skelligs and Ring of Kerry tour. Mary was an incredible tour guide! Prior to our trip, she was very quick to respond to emails and was able to book us on to the boat to Skellig Island (which is no easy feat as they are often booked for months). She picked us up from our hotel and dropped us off at the station, was very puncutal, knowledgable, and friendly. Worth every euro, espcially if you want to see the Skelligs, as not many tours take you to Portmagee. Highly recommended!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Bradley & Linda, it was a very full day starting early at 7am but well worth seeing The Skelligs, The Skellig Ring and the Ring of Kerry. Really glad you enjoyed it and I hope you have a great time for the remainder of your holiday in Ireland.

Another "thumbs up" for Mary! We scheduled this tour before we left home, and in the meantime my wife injured her knee and had to wear a brace. Given the Skelligs had many steps to climb, which my wife could not negotiate easily, Mary changed this to a tour of the Dingle peninsula. This tour was absolutely magnificent. Scenery was beautiful and the town of Dingle was a delight. Highly recommend the Dingle tour, but more than that I recommend any tour Mary conducts. Customer service at the highest level!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi James & Laurel, I am so glad you enjoyed the Dingle Peninsula & Slea Head tour, the scenery is fantastic and it is full of wonderful things to see. There are over 600 steps on Skellig Michael and hopefully next time you come to Ireland we will negotiate them! Look out for the new Star Wars movie Skellig Michael & the Beehive huts should be in it. Best Regards Mary.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Andrea for your wonderful comments, I am glad you enjoyed your tour and the beautiful scenery of the area. Best Regards, Mary.
Skelligs & Valentia Island - most amazing places I've ever been to. No picture can cover beauty of these places. Must see. Must visit. Having a guide by your side gives you fantastic advantage - there's no need to spend precious time deciding where to go and what to see first, how to get there, how long the road will take and etc. Your guide knows it all. And Mary was so friendly and knowledgable. I highly recommend this tour and Mary as your guide. Mary, thank you for this wonderful tour!
