Take a trip with Thomas Faherty around the island in a pony & trap, and see the beautiful sights of Inis Mor the old-fashioned way. Pony & trap tours are a family tradition and date back to the 1940s. You will hear wonderful stories and interesting island histories, all while taking in the amazing surroundings at a picture friendly pace. Stops are made along the route to let visitors explore. You can look for seals during low tide and hike up to Dun Aonghasa. But what makes Thomas and his tours so different? He likes to point out what other tourists may never get the chance to see, or have even heard about. Like the wormhole. No matter the length of your stay on the island, whether you wish for a private tour for two or an afternoon jaunt for ten, a tour can be arranged. that accommodates to your plans.

We visited Ireland for two weeks and my disabled son's big request was to go on a pony cart. We decided to wait until our visit to Innishmore to experience this, rather than in the cities. Our guide was Liam, and he was a wealth...More

hi! i was wondering how many people could fit together? could 4 adults and one child go? also, would this be ok for a 2 year old do you think?

Response from John H | Reviewed this property |
Easily fit that many. The 2 year old may not appreciate the great scenery and the walk up to Dún Aonghasa would be quite tiring.
