Every client receives a feedback survey when they return from their guided, self guided or tailor made holiday with us.

Once completed the review is published on our website just as soon as our database updates. The little touches and details are important to us and where issues are raised we make positive changes to our trips to improve your experience.

That's why we read each of our client's reviews and although we don't respond to all of them, if it's glowing feedback then we get the satisfaction of helping to make your holidays truly memorable.

West Ireland – Connemara, The Burren & The Aran Islands holidays

Along the Wild Atlantic way travel west for wild mountainous landscapes, proud Gaelic communities, windswept rocky islands and traditional music filled pubs.

From the unique rocky grey limestone landscape of the Burren, to the spectacular Aran Islands and the soaring mountains of Connemara National Park; it is on the west coast that the ancient Irish culture is alive and well.

The bohemian city of Galway with its labyrinth of cobbled streets, colourful shop facades and busy cafés is widely known as one of the most culturally rich cities in Ireland. To the West of the county lies Connemara and the Aran Islands with a vast number of heritage sites to choose from.

Known as the traditional music capital of Ireland, Clare offers unspoilt natural beauty, ancient monuments as well as intimate towns and villages. The sheer Cliffs of Moher, the limestone landscape of the Burren, the many natural Caves and the breathtaking views of the Shannon estuary makes this the perfect backdrop for outdoor adventures.
