Lally's tours were fantastic! Our driver John B. was an excellent tour guide and took us all over the west of Ireland. We got to see so much more than we expected, and I would recommend this tour to anyone in Ireland.

John B was wonderful! So many interesting facts and knowledge and added in some humor too! Lally Yours was much better than our previous tour bus. I also loved the small bus.
Fabulous Tour and Guide
Marla_G, Mar 2023
John, with Lally Tours was the BEST tour guide we have ever had! He was friendly, knowledgeable, funny and really went the extra mile! The sights were breathtaking and with commentary from John, we learned more than we thought possible! Marla and Richard Garrity
Memorable trip to the Cliffs of Moher.
Sharon_H, Mar 2023
Pick up location was easy to find and departed in time.It was a memorable trip. The spectacular views of the Ireland landscape and the Cliffs of Moher were amazing. Lunch at Fitzs Pub was very enjoyable. Our driver/tour guide, John B, was outstanding. He was very knowledgeable about the sights as well as the Irish history. We learned so much about the Irish famine that wasn't covered in the history books. Great sense of humor. Very enjoyable trip.
Don’t miss this tour.
Cindy_C, Mar 2023
Cliffs of Moher were amazing. Our driver gave us a lot of background of the area and we stopped for lunch at a quaint restaurant that has there own beer that you can only get there. It was delicious.
great tour, great host
Gerry_P, Mar 2023
Wonderful day with our tour. Our host John was great. Lots of interesting narrative as we traveled. Learned much about both the land and the people of the area Stops were well timed. We couldn't believe how much we saw in a single day, but never felt rushed. Nice lunch in Doolin was a welcome extra. We would highly recommend this tour. We'll worth the very reasonable rate.
Perfect Day Trip!

John B was an excellent tour guide. He talked about everything around such as the history of the houses, countryside etc….
Would definitely recommend this tour
Eliza_C, Mar 2023
A great tour with John B! His commentary throughout the bus ride was very enjoyable and I learned so much. I loved all the sights that we saw, this area around Galway is such an interesting landscape. Definitely worth paying the additional fee for the caves too, as they were very interesting and priced at a good discount with Lally Tours.
Amber_C, Mar 2023
Had such a great time on this tour! It’s the perfect blend of different experiences. Honestly probably my favorite tour of my whole time in Ireland. John B is a great guide and driver, he had such a wealth of knowledge about the area. Definitely a must do!

What a day !
Johanna_V, Mar 2023
Thank you John B. for this amazing trip to The Burren and of course to the Cliff of Moher ! Your knowledge of the places and your own anecdotes were really interesting and funny :) + The sun was with us! Can't be better !
Go ahead and book it
Karen_M, Mar 2023
If you’re thinking about booking this trip, I say do it! It was well worth it! At some points it did feel a little bit rushed but we still had time yo take pictures and things of that nature. If I were to change one thing about the trip it would be to maybe omit the castle part of it, only because it was closed and we weren’t able to go inside. Even with the time allotted I don’t think we would’ve been able to anyway so I think more time at the alliwae (pretty sure that isn’t spelled correctly)caves would have been better to explore the outside of that particular area a little bit more. With that being said I still give the whole experience a 10/10 and our your guide was the best!!! He really made the driving party extremely enjoyable!
A Lovely Day
Karen_W, Mar 2023
John B was a fantastic driver and truly knowledgeable (and a great supporter) about Irish history, culture, and geography. It was a long day, but being broken into discrete sites made it go fast. Lunch at Fitz was delicious (get the seafood chowder)!
connor_g, Mar 2023
John B was great!! Great driver and very knowledgeable! Would definitely recommend. He was efficient and considerate of everyone
Bus broke down
Richard_N, Feb 2023
The actual sites were amazing. Bus broke down on the way back to Galway so driver flagged down public bus which was overcrowded. The tour guide was knowledgeable but needs to keep the tour to the sites, not politics, etc. also, used the F word a lot.
Great driver, great tour! Thanks to Lally Tours.
Linda_J, Feb 2023
Thanks to John, our group had a wonderful experience touring the Cliffs, Dungaire Castle, Doolin, and exploring the beautiful countryside. The weather was not perfect, but there were still dramatic views and experiences. I highly recommend Lally Tours for your excursion. The coach is a nice size for the narrow, hairpin turns to get to the cliffs, and driver expertise is important!!
Great tour! Loved it
Lori_S, Feb 2023
This is a great tour with several stops at interesting places. The cliffs of Moher were the highlight of the tour. Words and pictures don’t do them justice-they are just so beautiful. The burrens are geological mystery - and interesting to see and experience. Had a wonderful lunch at Hotel Doolin pub. Ailee cave was something I hadn’t heard of but glad it was part of the tour. The cave guide was very knowledgeable about the cave. JohnB was our driver and guide for the tour. He was excellent- knowledgeable about Ireland, pointed out landmarks along the way, welcomed questions, was friendly and super nice. Highly recommend this tour- you get a lot for your money!
