A friend and I went on this guided tour with Patrick.The tour lasted three hours. He displayed an extremely impressive knowledge of the local hinterland. He had a very interesting commentary on all the birds/wildlife we saw. He provided insight in the history of the area. The equipment we used was new, well maintained and of a high standard. This...

A great experience. We were going to be very hungover but Patrick was flexible with our start time thankfully. We met up and headed off on a sometimes grueling, but completely thrilling experience. There is definitely no better way to experience the surrounds of the Burren than on a bike surrounded by nature being fed local information by an extremely... More

My friends and I kayaked the bay near Ballyvaughn with our guide Patrick, who was so accommodating and knowledgable! He even took us out in the middle of winter and kept in constant contact leading up to the trip about the weather. Would highly recommend, it was a unique way to see the coast!

Trip in the little bay of Ballyvaughan for a touristic workshop. Our guide (Patrick) was really friendly, pedagogue, spoke english well, slowly in order to be understanding by all non-english people. Our trip was oriented "discover of bay's nature" and it was perfect ! Really accessible to a new audience, awesome landscape, etc .... well ! perfect moment !

My friend and I are students at UL and had such a great experience! We had not done too much kayaking previously to the trip and they were very helpful and explained everything. We got to see lots of wildlife and even a seal! Definitely recommend going!

Warm welcoming before paddling among seals, then the astonishing wild beauty of Mutton island with your thrilling explanations, and this outstanding sunshine... Patrick, your organization is exceptional, Paradise was not far away ! Thanks so much and hope to see you again for a Burren mountain bike tour.

We spent our last morning in Doolin with Patrick and Kelly kayaking on the south side of Galway bay. Although it was too rough to kayak the Cliffs of Moyer, we were able to enjoy the more quiet waters in the bay and see seals and seabirds.

Hi Karen, Thanks for taking the time to write us a review! We are so glad you still got to get out in the water even though it was too rough for the Cliffs of Moher tour. Ballyvaughan is an excellent second choice! Hope to see you again in the future! Kind regards, Patrick & Kelly More
