Great craic!

Hands down the best craic in all of our Ireland visit! Our group was one of the first to get this tour and we couldn’t think of any improvements. Ollie immediately feels like a friend and his familiarity with the locals gives you a genuine sense of the island’s culture. The sites were informative and fun and there’s plenty of time to shop if you like. The visit with Una is a big highlight; her scones are still the best in all of Ireland. If you’re open to chat, she shares her stories from life before the ferries could even access the island (not THAT long ago!). Five hours might seem long to some, but it goes by in a flash. You’ll wish you had Ollie to show you around the rest of Ireland. Book this tour! Show less

Amazing Island Experience

It was a fantastic experience. Ollie is a really prepared guide and a very kind person. He knows what he's talking about and he's passionate about the island and its history. The weather was bad, but he fuond a way to make us enjoy the tour anyway. We highly recommend this tour if you are interested in knowing Ireland and its people. It's worth money and time!

Thanks Simon!

Simon was very aware of us as his guests to the island.. He checked on us on the ferry even though we weren’t sitting near him.. When we got off he gave us a fun and educational tour of an old castle a historic cemetery and a old shipwreck! After we went for delicious scones in a cafe and heard stories from a native of the island! Very interesting and highly recommend!! Thanks Simon! Grand day indeed!! Anne

Wonderful tour with Ollie

We had a wonderful tour with Ollie on Inisheer island. He had wonderful tales and kept both of our daughters laughing. The island is beautiful and they even made me a gluten free dessert. We had such a great time that we booked a hiking tour with Ollie. Thanks for a wonderful day!

Best way to explore the Island!

We booked Ollie’s Tours to visit Inisheer. Some did the bike tour while others took the tractor trailer. Either decision will show you points of interest on the island with a history to go along. Ollie himself is friendly and full of energy. You can’t go wrong using this tour company.
