What people are saying about County Galway

Really nice experience, the driver was incredible. The only problem is that there was not enough time on the national park. I, obviously, went to the peak of Diamond Hill, but takes one hour to arrive there and I literally took three photos and had to run the way back to not be late (and even like that I was about 5 minutes late).

Great experience. Really good value for money and a definate must do when visiting Galway or the West. Transportation was clean and roomy and the driver was so lovely and knew so much. Defo recommend.

It was more than enough time to see the cliffs and also go to the visitor centre. The tour guides were so nice and the road to the cliffs was beautiful. Had such a good time!

A wonderful experience thanks to our guide Jerry who managed to show us all the beauties of Connemara in humor, poetry and song.

Really good option when you don't have a full day!
