I brought a group of students on this tour. Doran was our guide. He was absolutely brilliant and extremely knowledgeable. If you really want to delve into the history of the area, this is your trip! An added bonus was the ferry on the Lough Corrib. Absolutely beautiful!

Living in Galway all my life I was looking for a tour to take with my sisters, one of whom was visiting from the USA. This tour came highly recommended to us. The tour started out in Galway City and we traveled to Ross Errily, Cong, Ashford Castle and Inchagoill Island.

Loved this tour with Doron. He is so knowlegable and proud of his hometown. Doron was very flexible and allowed time for us to do the Hawk Walk at Asford Castle. One of the best days we had in Ireland and learned so much from a great tour guide. Highly Recommend!!
