I turned up to the bus station at Galway at 9:25 only to find that the bus had left. The website says the departure time says 9:30. Would have loved to have gone but lost out :(

The Aran Islands are not to be missed while traveling the West Coast of Ireland, particularly as a day trip from Galway. What makes this more authentic is traveling with a native of the Aran Islands. We booked our group of 11 with Michael Faherty...More

Hi, I would like to take this tour around mid October 2017. I can get some bad motion sickness if the sea is very rough. What is the weather like around that time of the year. Can you give me some idea. There would be 2 of us. We will be staying in Salthill. Do you pick up from accommodation or do we have to come into Galway city to a particular location. Also what time does the tour start and what time does it get back to Galway. Thank you.

Hi, I'm traveling as a group of six. We are staying in Galway City - do you know of any Ring of Kerry Tours that depart from Galway City. Or any day trips to Killarney. Thank you
