    Emma and John were wonderful! However, sometimes it felt like the tour was a bit rushed (as expected in just 3 days), it would have been nice to do the route backwards as there was a lot to see on the last day. Overall, a great way to see some of Ireland in just 3 days.

    The experience was great and our tour guide was amazing with all the information, knowledge and friendliness they had. The downside is that the busses are not great. They are not made for warm weather and we had several of the passengers on our trip feeling faint and sick from the heat. The aircon didn’t work. The chargers didn’t work. I think this is something the company needs to address for the summertime for the safety of its passengers. It definitely alters your experience when the bus ride is uncomfortable and majority of your group feel ill from the heat/sauna inside the bus (not the outside temp). Staff were wonderful though!! If they hadn’t been I can ensure you people would’ve asked for refunds. The staff and itinerary saved this trip for me.

    Very friendly staff and driver and passenger. It’s always harder traveling solo but I felt most welcomed by your staff and trainee (assistant)Emma. Love it, got to see so much in 3 days. The dorm accom was great on the first night but very average the second night. The bed was comfortable in both, but the lack of bathrooms/showers at the 2nd disappointed me. A night stay in Galway instead of one of the others might be worth a consideration. Overall very happy.

    Darren was an absolutely fantastic guide, funny and friendly. Robbie was a great driver, and he and Darren made a lovely pair. Would recommend on the basis of those two alone. Accommodation the first night was at a recently renovated hostel that was very very comfortable, second night less great but decent enough anyway. Would have liked more time in Galway, but they managed to cram in a lot into a relatively short duration. Would go on another shamrocker tour - this was a great experience.

    I had a unbelievable experience with Shamrocker on the Southern Rocker tour of south-west Ireland. I would definitely recommend this tour to any friends visiting Ireland in the future. The 3 day tour was the perfect amount of time for me personally to see south-western Ireland, any less days would have been too short and any longer I think I would have tired of living out of a suitcase and being on a bus. I really enjoyed our small group of 15 people, which made the trip much more personal and memorable, we all became great friends. Our bus driver Rob was awesome, a super cheerful guy who entertained us with his lovely voice with many old Irish songs. Finally, our guide, Darren or Daz, made the trip the amazing experience that it was. He is super knowledgeable about Ireland and told the history and culture of the country with such passion. I was surprised someone so young knew so much about Ireland's history; it made me want to learn more about Ireland, and he recommend some great Irish movies and music. Thanks Shamrocker, Daz and Rob for the unforgettable trip, I will be back again!

    Darren is the best tour guide ever! This trip was honestly the most amazing trip I have been on in my life, and I have travelled a lot. 3 days felt like a week because we saw so much and I never wanted it to end. Definitely do it; worth every penny!

    The trip was pretty great, would've liked to stay longer in areas than to leave on the bus for long drives, some areas to stop off st were too long others too short; could have been discussed with those on tour. Lovely people ; everyone was pleasant and open to different opportunities :)

    While it's not exactly aimed at the younger set, because you'll see all of the same things as on a tour for an older crowd, definitely make sure you can keep up with college kids when it comes to walking pace and bounceback from drinking. I had a thoroughly good time but spent the entire second day hungover while my 20-25 year old companions bounded over mountains!
