My friend booked us with Celtic Compass tours and I'm really glad she did. This turned out to be such a fun, memorable day with a buffet of everything that Ireland could deliver. Stunning scenery, gorgeous animals, Irish roads, castles, ruins, crosses, the sea and more. Walter is a great guide and driver. He will also work around your interests as well so if you require anything not listed, just ask. I definitely recommend Celtic Compass Tours.

We had the best day of our trip to Ireland on Walter's tour. We took a great leisurely hike through the Burren, stopped numerous times to see the donkeys and wild horses at the side of the road, saw Celtic Crosses, Dunguaire Castle, Poulnabrone Dolmen and the breathtaking Cliffs of Mohr. He was attentive, knowledgeable and answered our endless questions with patience and humor. He took a ton of pictures of us and we had the most amazing lunch (my seafood chowder was the best I had in Ireland and the fish and chips-ginormous & yummy) at a small pub in Doolin, not a touristy place. His van/bus is very comfortable and new, affording nice views from all the seats without being cramped. Definitely would highly recommend this tour, so much more personal then the big bus tours we did the day before. Thanks Walter, hope we get to tour with you again!!!!

This was such a great day trip, we loved the fact that we didn't spend much time on the bus, instead we were walking in the burren and taking in the beautiful Irish landscapes. We had plenty of time to enjoy the Cliffs of Moher, which were absolutely breathtaking. Walter was a wonderful, cheerful, informative guide, and we loved patting the ponies on the way home! I would definitely recommend this tour, its a great way to experience Ireland's natural wonders!

Fantastic tour! Very enjoyable, and Walter was a fantastic easy-going guide, informative but not talking just for the sake of it! Having the small group was very nice as well as it was easier to chat with other people on the tour. Plenty of time allocated to each attraction, never felt in the least bit rushed during the day. I'll definitely go on this tour again!

Our family of four took the Burren/Cliffs of Moher tour. What a great day. A beautiful hike up Abbey Hill in the Burren, with beautiful vistas of the countryside and Galway Bay. Stop for lunch. Then a ride to the Cliffs of Moher -- also wonderful. Walter, the tour guide, was great. Informative, low key, friendly, and very patient with the varying paces of our tour group members. We had zero complaints. Ok, maybe one: We wish Walter offered the same kind of tour in the Connemara!
