I had the pleasure to spend a lovely multi-day tour thanks to Beyond the Glass Adventure Tours. I had the chance to visit some astonishing places in an amazing part of the west of Ireland. I shared this experience with a fun company and a friendly guide, James. Biking and hiking, we saw stunning landscapes, such as Inis Mor and the Erisberg Mountain, not to mention the ocean. We also had the opportunity to learn something about the Irish history, especially about the Famine, visiting also the National Famine Memorial.
Moreover, we slept some nice B&B, very comfy and tidy.
It was one of the best tours here in Ireland until now and I highly recommend it. if you want to live an experience in contact with nature, breathing the spirit of true Ireland, this is the best way!!

Martina - TripAdvisor review May 2018

James is a fantastic guide and the tour was amazing. We took the 8 day tour of the Wild Atlantic Way on the West side of the island. James was brilliant (as they say in Ireland) and had an answer to nearly every question (of which there were many). His knowledge of Ireland is quite impressive and he was able to show us cool hidden gem locations with some insane views because of his personal history of biking, hiking, and travelling the country. I don’t think we would have gotten the same experience with a larger company, as James’s familiarity with the lesser known areas allowed us to explore areas tourists typically don’t see. He mixes up the activities so you cant get bored and so you get the most out of your time on vacation. You can always tell when someone is passionate about what they do and James has passion in spades. I would highly recommend his tours for anyone looking for an authentic Irish experience.

Mary: Definitely, the tour Agency Beyond The Glass Adventure Tours is the best option to do adventure tourism around Ireland. We had unforgettable days in the company of friendly people who know the region and offer safety and moments of pleasure during the journey. Thank you so much for everything, you are the best. We hope see you soon.

Marcus: This was the best trip I’ve done in Ireland. Our trip was in west of Ireland, we cycled, walked and climbed mountains with beautiful landscapes. We also learned more about the history of Ireland.
Everything was perfect, sightseeing, accommodations, restaurants, time we stayed at each place. Our guide was James, he is fantastic.
If you are looking for a trip with adventure, contact with nature and gorgeous scenery, this is the best agency.

I had the pleasure of meeting James in 2013 while hiking through several feet of unexpected snow in central Virginia along the Appalachian Trail.  He’s got a wonderful sense of humor and an unwavering admiration for the outdoors.  I’m thrilled that he has pursued his love for the outdoors and is sharing that enthusiasm with others in the best of ways.  For those who are looking to book an adventure tour, I can assure that you are looking in the right spot.  You couldn’t ask for a better guide, and the memories will last you a lifetime.
