    After a lot of research with lots of options, I chose this company and tour because it had all the places I wanted.
    We couldn’t have been more entertained and educated than the narration of Mike, our comedian driver.
    Checking in was easy and well organized, centrally located, and well staffed.

    This tour was one of the high points of our trip to Ireland in October.

    The Lally Tour bus, which started just two doors down from our hotel (The Park House Hotel) normally carries about 16 people but on that particular day only my wife and I had signed up. The tour manager nevertheless let the tour proceed. One advantage is that we got to talk more conversationally with Michael, the tour’s driver/guide, and he was great. Michael was friendly, respectful and had a weath of knowledge. He couldn’t have been more welcoming.

    There was a bit of dampness in the air around Aughnanure Castle, but not enough to slow things done. (We learned that the day before the roads around the Castle had flooded out, and that that day’s passengers had not been able to tour the Castle grounds.) At the Castle, Giles, another great guide, gave us a very informative talk on the Castle’s history, with special attention to its architectural details (details that we would have missed just looking at the structure with uninformed eyes.) The winding stone stairs inside the Castle to the third floor are steep but we found them manageable.

    We later visited the Joyce farm where sheep dogs are trained to follow verbal commands (and as a bonus we were able to play with half a dozen or so puppies who were sheep-dogs-in-waiting.)The owner gave a short but entertaining talk about his dogs and his sheep, and then set one of his dogs up the hill to round up and bring down a dozen or so sheep. It was very impressive. And the Connemara countryside was truly breathtaking throughout the day.

    Michael then drove us to Cong, making stops here and there to let us take pictures at sites where the movie The Quiet Man (1952) with John Wayne and Maureen O’Hara had been filmed. (We had seen that movie and remembered it well; if you do take this tour, and haven’t seen that film, I’d recommend trying to see it somehow.) In Cong, we ate at lovely café that Michael recommended.

    My wife and I had a wonderful time on this tour, and recommend it highly if you visit the city of Galway.

    This was our first tour with Rabbies and we had an excellent experience with the tour. Our tour guide, Dan was exceptional. Dan was not only kind, good humored and accommodating, but has an incredible wealth of knowledge. His thoroughness of the Irish Gaelic language and history helped bring Ireland’s beauty, people and history to life. He is a great professional but very, very pleasant as well. He ensured that his customers were well taken care and comfortable. He explained every site with great depth of knowledge and patience. My husband and I consider ourselves lucky to have Dan as our tour guide. It was not only our experience but the other members of the tour conveyed the same sentiments as well. I would definitely consider Rabbies for our future tours and would surely refer friends and family to Rabbies for their travel needs especially Dan as their tour guide in Ireland. We have booked two additional tours with Rabbies on our travel to Scotland. Thank you very much, Dan and Rabbies for making our trip to Ireland an enjoyable one.

    The tour was very interesting. I want to watch “The Quiet Man” again so I can notice all the details the tour guide was talking about!

    When my husband and I planned our once in a lifetime visit to Ireland, we told our travel agency that the main reason I had always dreamed of going to Ireland was because of The Quiet Man movie. You could say I’m a Quit Man crazy fan!! My #1 site to see in Ireland was the Quiet Man Museum. You can imagine my heart break when our travel agent told us at the last minute that the museum was closed for the season. I was devastated!! My husband relayed our disappointment with them telling them they should have checked into that right away before we booked our trip in October 2023.
    Well they came through for us and contacted the folks that run the museum and they very graciously opened the museum just for us for a private visit!! Gerry met us at the museum. He was outstanding!! It was so surreal for me. He told us his family history with the movie. Several of his family members were extras in the film. Not only did he give us a private tour of the museum, he took us on a private tour in his car to the sites where the picture was filmed in the city of Cong. Words cannot express my Joy. I will be forever grateful to Gerry and his gracious hospitality and to our travel agency. They made my dream come true!!
    If you ever are blessed to take a trip to Ireland make sure you visit this site, you won’t regret it!!
    THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU a hundred times over!!!

    When we first arrived at Ashford Castle we were greeted by the boat and transported to the Castle. Later we enjoyed a more extensive cruise of the lake and were provided with varied information and history of the castle, the lake and its surroundings. Patrick followed in the family footsteps having started as a lad and then taking over the business from his father. Well worth the journey.

    We had a great day on our tour of Connemara with our driver Seoirse! He tailored the day to what our family wanted to see and provided great details and stories to give context to the sights we visited.

    This bike tour with Steve was such a wonderful experience. Everything from the coffee and the quick get to know you chat, through lunch and the afternoon trails was perfect for our couples getaway. The weather cooperated for being a late fall booking and the views were EXCEPTIONAL. Steve was a great guide and his knowledge of the area was helpful. We would never have been able to find those trails or those spots on our own!

    Tour was absolutely fantastic. We travelled the west coast from Killarney to Galway and saw the major sites en route (Dingle peninsula, Cliffs of Moher, etc.) as well as the out-of-the-way rural Ireland that Americans might often miss. Everything was well-curated without feeling touristy. Highly recommend!
