I booked two tours with them - premium cliffs of moher and Connemara. Both trips were very well organized and absolutely comfortable for a solo woman traveler. The guides on both days - James and Bud were amazing - informative, witty and great fun. They made the trip even more memorable. I would totally recommend these tours to fellow travelers - absolutely worth the money! :-)

Amazing tour. We loved every stop we made and our tour guide Mac was the absolute best. He went out of his way to make sure we all had a great time.
"Had an amazing time! Wonderful guides"
I did 2 tours on my first trip to Ireland:
Cliffs of Moher - premium (with David) - (the sheep dog trials were fun and the boat tour offered the chance to see the cliffs not only from above, but also below)
Giant's Causeway (with Sandra)
I was travelling alone and wanted to see the most of Ireland in 2 days. I decided to visit the west and north coasts. It was diffcult to choose whicih tours to do, but I don't regret my choice.
The guides were full of facts and anecdotes. They gave great information, told jokes and were very helpful. I loved these tours and would recommend them for a group, single traveller or couples. They locations could maybe be a little tricky for elderly or handicapped, but if you plan your time, there is enough time at each stop. If you want to see a lot in a short time, these tours are perfect for you! The bus and locations are safe, clean and friendly.
Thank you to Irish Day Tours, Sandra and David!
