Top attractions in Doolin
What people are saying about Doolin
We decided to take a tour rather than drive ourselves that day and it was the best decision!! Our driver and guide, Alan, was phenomenal! He not only was a safe and considerate bus driver, but he delighted us with his history of Ireland; the attractions he pointed out along the way; his direction on what to expect and what to do regarding getting onto the ferry to the Aran Islands, and being back on time; his assistance in coordinating the various tour methods on the island; his directions on where to go for food and the best sites, etc.; his jokes that were actually very funny; and overall, his warm and approachable personality! I don't feel that the experience would have been as positive or as informative had we driven ourselves. I hope that anyone that books with this tour has the good fortune of travelling with Alan! :)
The beginning of our trip was very disappointing - we felt like we are joining the army. The driver began with some very strict rules and what we will experience if we don't obey them. If it was a joke, it was too mush - 30 minutes threatening. We are all grown up responsible people after all. He took us to Galway where another driver met us. After 3 hours driving no time for rest room should be planned. In a hurry we passed through the city and then we had a free time. In spite of all that the rest was nice. Our second driver Damien was much more polite and nice. He told us a lot of stories about places we visited, with a good sense of humour and a lot of knowledge about the Irish history. Thanks, Damien!
It was a rainy day but the views were still stunning! Our tour guide, Tommy, was phenomenal! He was kind, patient, informative and fun! He made the day more enjoyable! I would do this tour again! We stopped at a look out area on our way back from the Cliffs of Moher and we were mesmerized by it. He also played Irish music on the bus which we all really enjoyed! Just a great experience over all! Highly recommended!
Tour was well organised and the guide has given us interesting information on Dublin, Ireland and its culture plus lots of recommendation for places to eat, drink and listen to Irish music. The places we have seen are truly amazing and you can really get a glance on how beautiful Ireland is. Although there is a lot of driving I recommend it.
It was a great no hassle option, and the coach station has luggage storage lockers. The driver, talented is all I can say, hairpin turns and narrow roads were no issue, he actually made it look easy. I had been on the fence about going and I’m so glad that I did.
