Excellent tour. Mr. Faherty was knowledgable, friendly and very organized. Moreover, the house we were renting was somewhat off his route, but he was kind enough to meet us at a nearby traffic circle (with his tour bus) and dropped us almost at our door whent the tour ended. That level of personal service is rare these days. My wife,... More

Fantastic day. Pick up at coach station was in a great location; ferry was fine. Did the tour bus on the island with Michael and he was great. Very informative and hilarious. Made multiple stops for photo ops and to enjoy the scenery. Highly recommend a day out to Inis Mor and to take Michael's tour.

Michael is organized, knowledgable and enthusiastic. We chose the cycling option which was great for us. Michael's sense of humour had us roaring with laughter on the way home when we were caught in the Cannonball Run traffic. His delightful commentary reflected his Irish humour.

Michael Faherty is a great tour guide. Being from Inis Mor himself, he has all the information you could possibly want. He has a great sense of humor and made it fun, even with terrible weather. Highly recommend!!!!!

Michael was a great tour guide. As a native of the islands, he was very informative. Best of all, he made the trip fun. He taught us a few words in Gaelic...such as hello, goodbye. We had a wonderful time and I would definitely go with Michael as a tour guide again. He is kind, funny, and knows what he... More

Michael Faherty was a great tour guide. He spoiled my expectations as I later went on other touring companies to The Cliffs of Moher and Cong (The Quiet Man) only wanting to wishing Haherty Day Tours was my guide. If you go to Arun Islands I highly recommend Faherty Day Tours

Michael was a great guide; having grown up on the Aran Islands he was familiar with the area and provided a lot of information. I would recommend this tour.

Neither rain nor rain showers did not dampen Michael's great form in providing a wonderful, informative tour experience to his native Inishmore! He picked us up at our B&B, giving a lot of factual/historical information of the Galway area, while en-route to the ferry. While on the island, Michael made several stops, allowing ample time for picture taking and exploring.... More
