    Really enjoyed the trip to the Fastnet Rock. Well organised. We had plenty of time to view the Fastnet as we went around it twice, nice and slowly.

It was great! The Tour itself brought us to many beautiful spots in Ireland and our tour guide David O´Brian was just the best! On our drive to Doolin he told us some interesting facts about galway as the city we´re all staying in, about geolocial peculiarities, the weather, the people and several other kind of things. I would not only recommend that tour but also do it again anytime!
