Wild Atlantic Way chauffeurdriven driven tours
Who better to take you around through the magical Wild Atlantic Way than somebody who was born and reared here?
My birthplace was Galway City, on the doorstep of Connemara, that region made famous in the movie "The Quiet Man". On the southern side of my homeland, we have the Burren, and the awesome Cliffs of Moher, and then south of that again we have County Kerry. Kerry is famous, of course, for the Iveragh peninsula, also known as the Ring of Kerry, and the beautiful Dingle peninsula. Further south once again we have west Cork and Kinsale, known as the gourmet capitol of Ireland. All of these areas are on the Wild Atlantic Way.

This western region was devastated by the famine in the eighteen hundreds, and in this picture above, we have the ruin of one of the thousands of abandoned homes in this region. A house of that size could have been home to a family of anything from one to fifteen people. Irish families always numbered many children.
My tours of The Gap of Dunloe tour, begin and end, in Killarney for me. The journey takes in two stages, the first being the journey on the horse drawn buggies, the famous jaunting cars, which take you up through the mountain gorge, a gorge created by a giant glacier during the ice age, and down to the lakes of Killarney, where you board your boats, which then take you down through those lakes, and back into Killarney at the restored Ross castle. The picture above shows one of my groups arriving back at the end of their journey. This is an unforgettable tour, and one you can take with me, when you get to Ireland.

There is no substitute for having your own experienced driver and guide, if you want to be able to really enjoy and experience the wonderful west of Ireland.
I would love to be the one to take you on this memorable journey through this land that i love so much. You will see, and experience, so much more, in comfort and safety.
An enquiry does not cost you anything. Doing it on your own may cost a lot more. You may be very pleasantly surprised by my suggested plans.
