Extraordinary Tour - Great Value and Gifted Guide
Jul 2019
Doron McHugh the owner of High Kings was our guide on a full day tour of Cong and Ashford Castle. He picked us up in Galway right on time and we travelled in comfort in a nicely appointed and spotless coach. A memorable part of the trip was Doron himself. He took us through the beautiful countryside delighting us with tid-bits of local Irish history, culture and folklore. He has a wonderful, and very genuine way of sharing his love of Cong and surrounds which were his boyhood haunts and continue to be his family home.
Highly recommend this tour. Excellent value. It was a nice break between typically touristy days in Galway.
Bring a small knapsack with a sweater and light rain jacket and good flat walking shoes,
No washroom aboard the coach. Use the restroom at the bus station before departing.
Don’t miss the gift shop at Ashford castle. Some very unique little gifts to bring home.
Thank you Doron and apologies for the delayed review. We will never forget the memories from your tour! Best to you...Mark and Sheila

Best tour we had in Ireland
Mar 2020 • Couples
Guide was friendly and informative. Really knew his history and was a native so had grown up with much of the history either personally or through family. Was willing to answer any question on Ireland we had as well, not just tour material. The tour material was interesting and we were able to see many historically significant and visually impressive ruins and locations. He was even able to point out what was original and what was restorations.

Best Tour in Ireland
Jan 2020
We recently stayed in Ireland for a month. During this time we did quite a few tours since we did not rent a car. Doran gave an excellent tour and was very knowledgeable on not only the beautiful sites around Galway but Irish life in general. We only regret not doing the tour sooner in our stay.

Great private tour to cong
Dec 2019 • Solo
What an amazing tour! It was slow season so I ended up getting a private tour which was awesome. The guide was super informative and gave me a lot of great history about the sites I saw and Ireland in general. The guide even offered to pick me up from my lodging which was also very appreciated. I would highly recommend this tour if you want a more private, personalized tour rather than being on a huge bus with a ton of other people.

Absolutely fabulous. Personal friendly service with a wealth of historical knowledge. I am so glad that we picked this tour; Doron’s knowledge and connection to the area enhanced the tour and made it memorable. The sites on the tour were well worth it. Can’t say enough positive things about this tour.

Trip to Cong and surrounding areas with a historical and personal perspective
Nov 2019
Dorran is the guide, and Dorran is the wizard. His description of growing up in the area, his encyclopedic knowledge of the history and people, and his amazing ability to tell stories and bring it all to life makes this the best tour in Ireland. I say again, the best tour in Ireland! You will experience the real Ireland on this tour, not the tourist version.

Doran is fantastic!
Aug 2019 • Family
This tour was brilliant. Doran has a mix of past and recent history and stories to interest every one. A great tour guide, the perfect mix of showing you where to.go, what to look at and some time to wander and investigate yourself.

One of the members in our group has ms and would be wary of difficult walks or anything too physical. This was perfect for her! Some paths would be a little uneven, but nothing out of the ordinary.

Genuinely a tour for everyone!!!
