Perfect Stag Party Activity! We had a fantastic Connemara Pub tour for my brother's stag party. Joe was our driver who was fantastic and joined in on the craic with us while we visited some great pubs around Connemara. Everything was very well planned and were really flexible with specific requests. Definitely a great activity to do in Galway for any party! Everybody had a brilliant time and were raving about it for the rest of the weekend.

Perfect Stag do activity Start to finish we had an amazing day out. Our group was 20 lads and i booked this as our saturday activity not really knowing what to expect. Padraic picked us up from the hotel as scheduled and even waited around for the couple of stragglers to make it downstairs. Start to Finish he couldnt do enough for us and was a pleasure to deal with (Even if some of our group were not). Flight in was amazing and the pints on the island i didnt know whether to drink them or eat them with a spoon!!
The tour itself wasnt for us , we were happy having a few pints and a laugh so we explained this to Padraic and it was no issue. Boat ride back was some craic and if the pints in Innis Oirr were good the pints in Tigh Chualáin where we stopped off on the way back to galway were out of this world.

We invited Padraic for dinner and a few more pints and he very kindly obliged, even bought everyone a pint. Absolute gentleman and would highly reccomend this trip as something completly different for a stag do.
Stag do Pub Tour I organised a stag do for 18 guys mostly from London and decided this was to be our main activity as it got us out of Galway for a few hours and we got to see the stunning scenery whilst sipping on some perfeclty poured Guinness. Beyond buying some beers for the drive (as it's roughly 30 mins between each place) everythign was taken care of for us. It was all very well organised and all logistics were dealt with to maximise the fun and minimise the boring organising.
I would highly recommend this tour for a stag or a bigger group of people. There were other stag dos at the same time so you mingle and meet others.

A super day spent in Connemara A large hen party group from Monaghan…. We did the Connemara Pub Tour at the weekend…to put it short, we didn’t want it to end!
Padraic, who was also our tour guide, was so helpful, friendly and patient, nothing was a problem!
We had the best craic visiting the pubs around Connemara and it was the highlight of our weekend! Can’t wait to visit Galway again to do this all over! Thank you so much!

A Great Day Out Exploring Connemara Great day with Padraic and Terry. No better way to explore Connemara. The pubs and the craic were excellent. Thanks!
This tour is a MUST! I booked this as a private tour in Nov, 2021 for a group of 13 friends including my mom. Padraic was our guide for the day and he was absolutely fantastic! He has a wealth of knowledge about Ireland to include the Irish language. We really enjoyed getting to learn some new words on the bus. Each pub/location had a unique story and atmosphere. The locals we interacted with were entertaining and friendly! I can easily say this tour was definitely a highlight of our weeklong adventure around Ireland.
Stag weekend. Lahinch to Aran island Went for a stag weekend in lahinch. Ronan from Connemara pub tours met us with a bus in the town and brought us to doolin for the ferry to head to inismore for a day trip. We were brought to a few different pubs and had a tractor/trailer tour of the island also. It was a brilliant day out, great craic and highly recommend. We couldn’t have asked for a better trip. Definitely give the lads a shout if thinking of a similar trip. Thanks to Ronan and Padraic.
Trip to Inis Oírr Pádraic took 20 of us from Galway to Inis Oírr for a day trip last weekend.
A brilliantly organized days outing. Pickup from Galway, with flight over, boat back, loads of pubs in the middle, tractor tour, churches, graves, shops, drinks, swims, craic.

Stag of the group also got a special gift of whiskey and some treats.

Really reasonably priced. Excellent day out all round! Highly recommend for anyone looking to see a few pubs and Aran island; friends, stags, hens, group trips etc.

Excellent Tour An excellent trip to the Aran Islands. Fantastic Itinerary and Padraic was exceptional. Couldn't have asked for a better experience it had everything. If you are going out west give Padraic a call you won't regret it.
Aran islands tour June Fantastic trip to the Aran islands with Padraic. He couldn’t be more helpful and took care of all our requests. Would 100% recommend any trip with him.
