Had a wonderful time with John. He took the time to take us anywhere we wanted to go and show us details of the island that we would not have seen otherwise. We would definitely do this again! His buggy is great, very comfortable with cover if it decides to rain.

John is a joy to ride with and knows all the great places. His cart is enclosed which is great for those Rainy or Windy Days. The price is excellent and well worth it. Love the Horse and buggy as opposed to the buses which take up most of the road on the way to Dun Aonhgus.

This was a great way to tour Inis Mor island! John was a great tour guide. He was very patient with us, stopping whenever we wanted and for as long as we wanted. His cart was extremely comfortable considering the bumpy roads. He was even thoughtful in bringing blankets along for the cool weather. He was both friendly and informative,... More

John was absolutely amazing. He is a very kind man and knows so much about the history of the island. He's not pushy, doesn't rush you to get from one point to another. When we arrived at each stop, he told us to take our time and that he'd be waiting for us whenever we were done sight-seeing. I highly... More

On a recent visit to Inis Mor with our Canadian friends we were fortunate enough to have employed John & his pony & trap to take us around the island. What a fantastic day out we had! John was/is an invaluable source of knowledge & entertainment and went out of his way to show us things & places of interest... More

John was there waiting when we disembarked from the ferry. He wasn't pushy in offering his services and since it was raining and cold we decided to not ride bikes but take a tour with John in his covered horse wagon. We're glad we went with John because we were only there for the day and we never would have... More

What a way to spend a few hours touring inishmore. John and his horse "Rena" were wonderful. John was such a laugh and we had a lot in common as my father was a Connemara man. He was so knowledgeable about the island to and as a team , he and his horse / pony were wonderful. Thanks John for... More

We got off the ferry. Right away we were approached by pony & trap drivers. I had read about John and had seen all the reviews, so waited until we saw him. Luckily, he had not been booked (you can reserve ahead, if you plan better than us!). His trap has a cover, so it is good in all kinds... More

On the day we visited Inis Mor it was raining so we chose John and Jack for our tour of the island. John was extremely friendly and informational. He went above and beyond in giving us all the information and letting us get on and off throughout the tour. Would highly recommend John!
