Our tour guide Jim was fantastic! He took us off the beaten path to places we would not have found on our own and to meet people we would not have met. Every stop was lovely and of course Jim's special touch of taking beautiful photographs of us and our stops really made a special trip even more special. Would... More

Five fellow photographers and I recently spent a wonderful day touring Connemara. Jim and Patrick, our driver, took us to many special spots that they knew we would enjoy photographing. This day was the highlight of my time in Ireland. Whether photographers or not, be assured you would have have a delightful time with these fine gentlemen.

Our family of 5 adults booked a 4-day trip of SW Ireland with our driver Patrick. I did not want the stress of driving on the left on narrow, unfamiliar roads. It was a good decision as I now know that I would not have been able to enjoy those 4 days nearly as much as I did. We were... More

We spent a wonderful day with Jim last week and are still raving about all we saw and did in that nine hour period. Jim showed us his favorite spots and told us his favorite stories and took us to all the places that make Connemara special. He played the weather well, saving the most beautiful spots for the afternoon,... More

We hired Jim Parslow and Ireland West Tours for a day tour of the Connemara region from Galway. BOTTOM LINE UP FRONT: We really enjoyed our tour and would highly recommend anyone consider visiting the Connemara or other areas of Ireland to use Ireland West Tours. A little background my fiancé and I are in our 30s. We wanted to... More

Traveling with my husband, adult son and his college friend, we had 2 days in Galway, and only one to go sightseeing outside of town. I booked a day trip with Jim Parslow, and am so glad I did! Jim was punctual, kind, knowledgeable, and very perceptive in his ability to know just what would appeal to us as a... More

My husband and I just returned from a month long vacation of Ireland and the UK and took many private tours. Jim's full day tour was by far the best of the best! Jim's passion for the area and sense of humor was evident as he shared his knowledge of history and folklore. He knew backroads and magical places that... More

We travelled with another couple and had found Jim through TripAdvisor and booked him months ago. Could not heap enough praise or support of all the positive comments already posted. We had amazing weather which increased the choices that he gave us and for 2 full days, we saw everything we could have wanted and more. Jim knew all the... More

We toured with Jim of Ireland West Tours and are so glad we did. He was prompt and organized. He suggested that we see the Cliffs of Moher from the water, and it was a wonderful experience. He took us to places we would never have seen on our own. The two 18-year olds traveling with us loved it all.... More

Jim was just wonderful. We booked a full day with a pickup in Galway and a drop-off at Dromoland. We were also traveling with our Son and he dropped him off at the Train back to Dublin. Jim was a great story teller and rather then me having to drive I was able to sit back and enjoy the wonderfull... More
