What people are saying about County Clare

Our guide, Martin, MADE this experience! It was extremely cloudy at the Cliffs, so unfortunately we weren't able to see them, and that could have ruined the day, but Martin made sure we had a great chunk of time at the Burren to make up for that loss. He had a great sense of humor and was both a careful driver and knowledgable guide! He was so considerate and accmodating. :) Highly recommend him.

The day started off with rain but once we met Jerry that cloudy sky went away! My cousin and I are from Cork and we wanted to explore and learn more about Ireland. Our tour guide Jerry was able to teach us loads of stuff in a fun and dynamic way with a joke or two in between stories :) we loved it!

The other tour was amazing. John the tour guide was awesome. He was funny, engaging and very knowledgeful and really gave it the 5th star! We loved it.

Very good tour. Reasonably priced and a good variety of activities during the 10 hour tour. Highly recommend this.

The Driver on our coach was so helpful & had lots of information and fun facts for us to enjoy.
