I was amazed at the sheer customer service that Connie displayed! You see, unlike other private tour operators who charged from one-tenth to ten times as much as she charged, she was more than willing to alter the schedules/regions she offered in accordance with the customer's wishes. I had chosen magnificent views and prehistoric ruins, and I am most pleased to not have been ripped off in this regard, unlike some other more unethical tour guides in the area...
I, due to collosal stupidity, visited Donegal in the month of September 2018. By the time I saw Connie I had been seriously ripped off by various taxi-drivers and one freelancing ship's captain for a many hundreds of euros each. It turns out that it is a waste of time to visit Ireland outside of July/August. I also learnt, via Connie, that it is always better to hire a private guide to oversee more unscrupulous, more unethical guides. She introduced me to parts of Donegal I had never seen before.
