Private day tours in Mayo & Sligo

My private day tours around Mayo & Sligo are perfect to get a taste of what the west of Ireland has to offer.

Above all, the biggest advantage of my fully guided day-trips is flexibility!

Firstly, every guided tour will be tailored to meet your exact needs. To begin with, we’ll have a chat about your interests, likes and needs.

  • Do you like the outdoors?
  • Would you like to go for a hike or a cycle?
  • Are you interested in traditional home baking or
  • Do you want to learn about the art of Irish Whiskey production?

Next, I craft a customised tour package to perfectly fit the needs of your group. In addition, as your experienced private tour guide, I keep your adventure flexible for your convenience.

Sightseeing Day Tours

My private day tours are perfect for everyone who wants to explore the best of what Mayo & Sligo have to offer. For example, one of the top destinations to visit on a day trip from Ballina is Downpatrick Head and the North Mayo Ceide Coast. Also, the Sligo Surf Coast, with the coastal villages Easky & Salthill, the majestic Knocknarea mountain and the Queen Maeve Trail are great destinations for a day tour. Likewise, Ballycroy National Park & Achill island are amazing places to visit in County Mayo.

The best thing about my day trips – every package is crafted to meet your needs!

Get a taste of the island! The west of Ireland is a paradise for foodie visitors. How about a traditional Irish baking lesson in Marjorie’s kitchen? Or a Whiskey Appreciation Session to learn about different styles of the uisce beatha and find out which Whiskey you like best and why.
