For our first trip to Ireland, my husband and I couldn't decide between renting a car and touring the island ourselves or booking an organized tour. After reading the amazing reviews that Dave O'Connor and his Wolfhound Adventure Tours have received on TripAdvisor, we decided on the 6 day southwest tour. I can't emphasize enough what a good decision this... More

Wolfhound Explorers with Dave O'Connor was an amazing experience. Dave does an excellent job sharing his love for the country, culture and people. It's personalized, active and moves at the right pace. It's a great mix of activities that you can choose from or opt not to and do your own thing. Small group makes it fun and never boring....

This tour provided more than I could have imagined. We stayed in Dingle, Port Magee and Kenmare. Hiking, biking, visiting ruins, horse riding and having fun. Dave took away the stress of figuring out where to go, what to see and where to stay (never mind all the driving). What he added was an encyclopedic knowledge of the history, geology,... More

This was our third tour with Dave and we have already scheduled our fourth tour with him in November 2017. My wife and I took my eldest daughter and her family to Ireland for New Years. We had four boys between 12 and 18. Dave was able to keep the four boys engaged and interested as well as the 8... More

Not much to say that hasn't already been said, but I'll add my approval to the mix. We haven't been on other small-group tours in Ireland, so I have no idea how Wolfhound compares, but I can't imagine any are better. Dave is extremely knowledgeable about Irish history, legend, and landscape, and he's willing to share it all. There are... More

My husband and I are not the type to do "tours" when traveling, we avoid touristy places so we can experience the culture. Wolfhound Adventure is hands down, the best decision we could have ever made. Dave educates you on all the history of Ireland as he's driving through the country, and while there are a lot of not so... More

This was the best trip ever. I highly recommend this as a great way to see Ireland. Dave is a fantastic guide. He shared the history with humor and offered options of things to participate in. I wasn't disappointed by any part of the trip and would love to go back for a tour to other areas.

If you are looking for the perfect tour guide, you found him - Dave O'Conner is your man. All the raving reviews that you read are ALL TRUE! We travelled with 3 families (6 adults and 5 children ages 10-13) through Southwest Ireland. Dave's itinerary was matched perfectly for our group - just the right amount of adventure for everyone....

Three years ago I went on a Wolfhound tour with my husband and three other couples. We had a great time and I have really wanted to go back. This time I went with my daughter. Wonderful mother/daughter trip! Dave has to be the best guide going! He reads the group very well and will change things up to accommodate... More

This was my second Wolfhound Adventure Tour and won't be the last. Dave sets the bar extremely high and will unintentionally cause all other tours and guides seem lacking. Dave has perfected the art of storytelling and providing each traveler with a trip full of adventure, laughter, and camaraderie. Dave specializes in taking people off the beaten path and allowing...
