I wasn’t really sure what to expect for our trip to Ireland, but Wild N’ Happy exceeded my expectations. Michael and Tomas, our tour guides, were very friendly, knowledgeable, and answered all the crazy questions our group could come up with.
Hurricane Ophelia even tried to ruin our plans while there, but despite the weather hiatus for 1 day we were still able to see all the tour highlights. Both guides were amazing, patient, and had great senses of humor- they really felt like family by the end of the trip!
A group of 6 us ranging from 28-80 yrs old went on this tour, and we all had a great time! The tours are put together very well- as you really get to see everything you desire before each stop for the night. I would highly recommend Wild N’ Happy to anyone who wants to tour Ireland the BEST way with amazing guides, and have a great time! Thanks for helping make our trip so memorable!

We can’t say enough about our recent Wild n Happy “Wild South” tour. It was 8 days of beautiful scenery, expert guides, and a wonderful mixture of nature and history. Can’t recommend it enough. Highlights of the tour were West Cork, Ring of Kerry, Dingle and Cliffs of Moher, but also Kinsale was charming and Killarney & the National Forest are wonderful. I guess the tour was just that — full of highlights. Well done, Wild n Happy crew — thanks for a highly memorable tour of Ireland.
