How nice of you to drop in. We are the Athlone Tour Company and we are brand new. Well, sort of. We started out in Galway in 2007 and have been providing visitors from all over the world with the best day tours of their travels in Ireland. We have been consistently ranked as #1 on TripAdvisor since we began operating, and to us it comes as a great reward to hear that our efforts to bring you an enjoyable and fun day are so well received.
We firmly believe that travel should be fun, no matter where you are, who you’re with or what the weather is like. And believe us, the latter proves a challenge more often than you would think. We want each and every one of our passengers to have a fantastic time with us. We want them to laugh, to learn and to explore places that are a bit off the beaten track as well as those that are known to people all over the world. We like to tell you stories and make you laugh, we might even sneak in a bit of education while we’re at it but don’t let that get in the way; this is by far the best way to learn something new.
You see, we are all very passionate about Ireland, its history and its heritage, its stories and its folklore. Our guides are the best you can find and they have bucket loads of information on all the places we take you. You may be going somewhere new or somewhere you’ve been before but you will be guaranteed to walk away with something you didn’t have when you set off.
There are so many wonderful and magical places around our beautiful island and we just want to share them with the world. Sure, we could just tell you about them, but we’d much rather take you with us and show you. So go ahead, have a look around. We’ll be seeing you later!
Safe Travels from all of our Team at Athlone Tour Company
