Overview

Take a trip with Thomas Faherty around the island in a pony & trap, and see the beautiful sights of Inis Mor the old-fashioned way. Pony & trap tours are a family tradition and date back to the 1940s. You will hear wonderful stories and interesting island histories, all while taking in the amazing surroundings at a picture friendly pace. Stops are made along the route to let visitors explore. You can look for seals during low tide and hike up to Dun Aonghasa. But what makes Thomas and his tours so different? He likes to point out what other tourists may never get the chance to see, or have even heard about. Like the wormhole. No matter the length of your stay on the island, whether you wish for a private tour for two or an afternoon jaunt for ten, a tour can be arranged. that accommodates to your plans.

Thomas himself seemed to be busy so they referred Michael to the 3 of us. Michael and his beautiful horses (Robin and Johnny) really took good care of us. He was super flexible. We asked to adjust the tour to include two places we want...More

Lovely tour with Thomas and his brother Christopher. Highly recommended as it's not all about the money, they ensure you have a good time while in the island.

Easily fit that many. The 2 year old may not appreciate the great scenery and the walk up to Dún Aonghasa would be quite tiring.
