We really enjoyed our tour. The guide was very knowledgeable, and it seemed somewhat fitting that the rain was coming down sideways for the duration of the tour! Pack a raincoat just in case! We saw some locations where the show was filmed, had some great photo opportunities, and enjoyed delicious cakes and tea at the parochial house. Probably one... More

Janet assuaged my fears that crows would not steal my spectacles and we were off. I was after forgetting the travel scrabble for the car but sure I didn't need it as the tour was huge fun altogether. Janet is clever enough and showed us many grand spots from the show on the television. We had a lovely cup of... More

Myself, my husband and another couple went on the Father Ted tour with tour guide Janet. Janet was very enthusiastic and knowledgeable and also very friendly. We visited several Father Ted film locations and also had the pleasure of tea and cake at The Parochial House. It is a day we will never forget!

This tour was so good! We got to visit so many places from the show, heard stories from the filming and even met people who were in it. We are all huge Father Ted fans so seeing each location was incredible. The guide was so nice and knows her Father Ted facts/quotes. We'll be going back for sure.

We were a party of 4 adults and booked the Ted tour together with afternoon tea. The whole experience was great fun and a little quirky but with were with other like minded people on our bus which added to the experience. Ted tours provided costumes and props if needed but we took our own. I think our bishop hats... More

Lovely day out we went to some Father Ted hotspots and out to the house. The scenery on the way to the house is lovely. We paid extra for tea and cakes which at 10 euro each is quiet expensive but the cakes are home-made and the privilege of being in the house and to get the photo opportunities makes... More

Fun tour, you get out of it what you put in. Dressing up is definitely a must! The team were very helpful and all the locals we met were super friendly.

Great to see the locations, and seeing the Parochial House is amazing (definitely do tea and cakes). However, overall we were a little disappointed. Our tour, I think, really suffered from the tour guide not being on the bus - the tour was overbooked thus she went separately in the car. When doing these things, part of the experience is... More

It is not normal practice for the guide to be in another vehicle, however, we made an exception as an extra person turned up with a group of friends who were booked in already, she was not aware that she had to book in advance, and the tour was already full. The only other option would have been to leave... More

If you are a Father Ted fan then you must 100% do this tour. Saw several locations in the area including Ted's house and many recognisable filming locations and even met some extras from the series. Tour guides were ever so friendly and knowledgeable. Can not recommend this tour enough!!!!!
