Bonjour, J'ai fait le tout Cliffs of Moher, c'était magnifique, dommage, que le chauffeur ne pensent pas qu'il transporte des touristes, qui ont du mal à comprendre la langue, donc de parler plus fort, plus doucement et en articulant. Seulement 35 minutes pour manger , 1 h à Galway, pour arriver à 18h45 (heure prévu 19.30h)

Seamus Bryne was a wonderful tour guide who took us in a merry-looking blue bus to Boyne Valley. We were blessed to have a fully sunny day and clear skies in County Meath. We saw the fantastic scenery and views around the Hill of Tara, the place where once the High Kings of Ireland resided and also a place held sacred. Get ready to stand still in time as you wander here. Trim Castle, an impressive Anglo-Norman wonder, is tall and wonderful to look at. You can also see the river Boyne flowing by. Loughcrew Cairn is said to be the resting place of Ollamh Fodhla, a legendary king of Ireland. The views and the scenery are stunning, from the summit. Overall, Seamus entertained us with legends and myths, and all that is typically Irish!

Nous avons réservé pour le celtic tour. Annulé la veille, reporté au lendemain avec un nouvel horaire de départ à 6h50. Arrivée sur place, personne, le départ était en fait bien à 8h malgré que nous ayons appelés et envoyé des mails pour confirmation sans aucune réponse. Visites des sites expédiées sans grandes explications. Le chauffeur faisait d'ailleurs office de guide. Compris dans le tour le château de trim que nous n'avons pas fait car fermé. Payé pour 8h d'excursion. Nous serons de retour à Dublin à 16h. Attrape touriste, très cher pour rien. Je ne recommande absolument pas. Et le siège reste injoignable. À éviter

Had a day trip to Cliffs of moher from Dublin. Jonathan was our driver and was loaded with history along with local information. He sings well too. :-) I personally recommend Irish day tours especially if you wanna cover the key places filled with historical information. We were on time even with a packed bus.

On October 2nd, we did the Celtic Boyne Valley Day Tour from Dublin. Very comfortable bus. The tour guide was courteous and had extensive knowledge of everything we saw. I highly recommend this tour!

Great smaller group! We had booked a trip to Celtic boyne but it was cancelled two days before (not enough people). Instead we went to the cliffs of moher and Galway and it was a great trip!

Finn was a great guide! Enjoyed our trip. He spent the perfect amount of time between talking and letting me nap on the bus between stops. Would definitely book again if given the chance. Well done Sir.

Update: I contacted Irish Day Tours as per response to my review as we will be returning to Dublin next fall. Against my better judgement, we decided to hold them to their word of making it up to us. What we were offered was 5 euros each off our next booking, & they actually used the phrase ‘to enjoy this extra discount’. That is next to nothing considering their tour prices. An apology for not letting us know our tour had been canceled after we sat waiting for the bus seems ridiculous, & the offer of this ‘extra discount’ is downright insulting. Not exactly a way to improve future interactions with customers. I’m sure there are other tour companies in Dublin going where we were supposed to go this year & want to go next year that will actually show up. I’m really disappointed with the tone of the email received from Irish Day Tour, & their idea of making it up. I really had hoped to update my previous review with something more positive. ——————————————————————— Booked a day tour to Glendalough back in December. We showed up today at the designated area 15 minutes prior to the leave time. We became concerned when we were the only ones waiting, & as the leave time came & went, we wondered if the waiting spot had been changed & we weren’t informed. A half hour after the start time & after waiting for 45 minutes, we walked to the tour office to find out what had happened. The woman at the counter first said that no tour was planned for today, but when we showed her the confirmation email, she went & got someone else. He seemed confused as well but after sharing screen shots of our confirmation email he finally found us in the system. We were never told prior to today that our tour had been cancelled, or offered a different date. He seemed genuinely surprised, & was apologetic, however, we had gotten up very early to get to the designated area, & waited for almost an hour for a tour that had been cancelled. While we completely understand if there aren’t enough people to make the tour worthwhile it could be cancelled, it’s difficult to understand this blatant disregard & lack of respect to visitors to Dublin. Would it have been such a hardship to send an email letting us know of the cancellation? While I was given a refund, & while the person who had to deal with this was very understanding, it is inexcusable, & seriously poor business to be this cavalier about paying customers on the behalf of Viatour & Irish Day Tours . The kicker though? Getting an email from viatour a few hours after we were left waiting, telling me about the very tour we had booked. Completely unimpressed & sorry we had booked this trip because we didn’t get to go.

We took a tour from Dublin to Galway yesterday, and it was fantastic. Very relaxed, informative, and full of beautiful scenery. The double decker bus was a nice surprise. Would recommend!

Hicimos la excursión de Blarney Castle con Brandom. Era un chico muy amable y simpático. Nos dejo el tiempo suficiente para ver los 3 castillos del circuito, pero sí que eché de menos tener algo más de tiempo en el último de ellos (30min más serían suficiente) para poder disfrutarlo a nuestro aire. Por lo demás un 10. Lo volvería hacer. See you in Basque Country, Brandom!

We did the Cliffs of Moher tour today and it was a day well spent. The tour was awesome, incredible sights, food etc and our guide Jonathan was amazing. He was so informative and entertaining, even singing for the group! I highly recommend the tour and you will be lucky if you get Jonathan as your guide!

Wir hatten den singenden Jonathan als Busfahrer. Er war sehr freundlich. Großes Lob an ihn. Die Tour war OK, leider konnte nicht alles besichtigt werden, was nicht am Wetter lag. Da müsste man auch am Preis was machen, denn die Veranstalter wissen das.

My experience was terrible, the bus dropped me off on the cliffs and didn't tell me anything, I injured my foot and returned more slowly to the bus when I got there and it wasn't there anymore. Choose other companies that don't leave you in the middle of nowhere

I don't recommend it. After a four hour drive you will only have one hour on the Cliffs of Moher. But it will give you an hour of time to sit in a dodgy pub. It would have been better to spend that hour walking along the cliffs. Plus for a comfortable bus and a nice driver.

we did the cliffs of Moher day trip with Irish day tours and this was our second tour with a different company- I gotta say, this one was miles better: our tour guide Johnathan was very engaging and knowledgeable. I wasn't bored for one second. I will give you some tips: if it rains, you will not get on the boat - but that's okay, our guide made sure he took us to other sightseeing locations to make up for it. You don't eat until 2pm so make sure you bring some food. also water. also there's no bathroom on the bus but the guide is great and will stop if necessary. For my celiac friends: the pub we went to "McGann's pub" was very knowledgeable and even had gf bread! now, I asked my tour guide first so he had called ahead so that's always something you should consider. The cliffs were very windy so the fog came and went and it was still very much beautiful so don't worry!! bring a rain jacket and warm clothes.

J ai réservé pour une collègue et moi une excursion aux falaises de Moher. Pas un mot de français ni aucun effort pour nous parler ! Nous n étions même pas côte à côte. Quand nous sommes remontées après un arrêt le chauffeur et 3 voyageurs auprès de nous ont parlé de nous et on ri. C était très humiliant. Comment peut-on se moquer des gens et pourquoi ? Ça a été terrible pour nous

Adrian was such a great guide! Very witty and personable and he passed the time on the bus with loads of stories. He also know some trips to enable us to get around other tour groups and have the best possible experience. We took the tour to Blarney Castle. 100% would recommend and would book this company anytime in back in Ireland.
