    My husband & I did the 5 day spectacular tour, with our wonderful guide Dan! Overland Ireland is the perfect way to see Ireland! The small vehicle makes it so that you can actually navigate all the narrow roads, get over the mountains & into all the tiny towns that the huge motor coaches cannot. And small vehicle means a small tour group which is amazing. Our guide and group were so lovely which made the trip even more enjoyable. The 'craic' was mighty! We are already looking into the Wild West & North tour and would definitely recommend Overland Ireland!

    This tour really lived up to my expectations and more! The accommodation was lovely and comfortable and the service was incredibly hospitable. The itinerary was perfect for the 5 days I was in Ireland and really showed off the spectacular countryside and seaside overlooking the Atlantic Ocean. I have to say, the trip wouldn't have been the same without Jimmy, our tour guide. Jimmy was accommodating, lively and engaging throughout the whole tour. Everywhere we went we learnt the fascinating history and stories of certain places only a local would know. Jimmy's warm persona made the group feel happy and relaxed, which in turn made for an enjoyable and safe travelling environment. Thank you for the wonderful experience :)

    We had a fabulous trip! Having a small group was so nice and helped to fit lots of things into a limited amount of travel time! It was great variety of activities that could fit many interests. We would do this trip again in a heartbeat!

    My daughter surprised me with two tickets and a 5 day tour of Ireland for my birthday. It had been my dream to travel to Ireland someday. Sara chose the 5 day Spectacular South and West Tour with Overland Ireland because it they covered almost everywhere we wanted to visit during our stay. We had a two day in Dublin before we left for southern Ireland. We were really lucky with our group. There were 8 of us in total and our guide Reinier was so much fun. He made time for us all and encouraged us to take part in all the activities. I surprised myself by kayaking with fungie and trekking over the Cliffs of Moher. We didn’t come to Ireland for the food but I had some of the best food of my life while on vacation there. Before we left for Dublin we went on a fabulous food tour of Galway. I’d highly recommend it. I will never forget this special experience with my daughter and the great time we had with Overland Ireland. Thank you xxx

    Just returned from a 5 day tour of Ireland with Overland. I was traveling by myself and had a great time. There were 12 of us on tour and it was really easy to get to know everyone and we had a great and great nights out. Met some really nice people and friends. Our guide, Ray, knew so much about this amazing country. I did the 5 day tour but which suited really well because of work commitments but would really like to come back and do a longer tour with them. I was a bit nervous about the kayaking because of the cold water but we were given wetsuits and the local dolphin came really close to our kayak which is something I will never forget. We stayed two nights in Dingle which was really nice, not unpacking your bags for one night is really nice. Dingle is really nice, great food and we visited a pub that was a hardware store and a pub at the same time. Keep up the great tours and we will hopefully see you again. Ray thanks a an amazing tour.

    Oh wow...where do I start? If you're looking for a big un-personal coach tour, please move on. This isn't it. If you're looking for a company that will take your wants and needs into consideration, utilizes small vehicles and provide you with an excellent personal experience this is the company to go with. I am a solo traveller and could not recommend this company highly enough. Our guide Lisa was really considered and made sure we were well looked after. She called ahead for our lunch stops and made reservations so the group could eat together. She knew all the folklore and great historical facts and since this was a small group there she could give everyone plenty of attention. She had a great sense of humour and was always calm and collected. The tour was also flexible within the set time frame. Lisa always asked what we wanted to do and how much time we wanted to spend somewhere which is a really nice way of touring. Our accommodation was lovely and always within walking distance of the pubs and restaurants. Rooms were clean and comfortable and the Irish know how to make a hearty breakfast. My five days touring was way to short and I wished I had chosen more time to spend in this lovely country and with Overland Ireland. “Thanks a million” for a wonderful trip.

    I booked this tour as it has great reviews but was very disappointed. As a solo traveller I chose a group tour to have a fun, shared holiday but often felt very lonely, eating alone and even staying in accommodation alone. I joined a group tour partly because I hate eating alone! The guide showed no interest in bonding the group and never came out with us or advised us where to go. Luckily the other people were lovely but we were frequently left using our guide books! Not what you expect from a local guide. The back of the van was very bumpy. That said, the itinerary and accommodation were great.

We have had many solo travelers in the past and all of them had a great experience and even the feedback from your own group was excellent including the reviews. We will evaluate the tour again in full to see to make sure everyone who travels with us has the best experience possible. Kindest Regards, Clodagh
