Mossie is a perfect tour guide. Knowledgeable, patient and very personable. We can highly recommend him for a tour guide. We were travelling with young children and everyone, adults and kids, enjoyed the tour.
We thoroughly enjoyed our tour of the Dingle Peninsula with Mossie. He was very friendly and knowledgeable!
We can't say enough about Mossie and his tours. Really, the word 'tour' doesn't begin to capture what it's like to spend time with Mossie on his native soil. Yes,... read more we saw exquisite sights on the Dingle Peninsula that took our breath away. But Mossie helped us 'see' the sights through the eyes of a native son. With Mossie, Irish history and culture come alive through his narratives, his gorgeous singing, and recitation of Irish poetry. Truly magical and unforgettable experiences! We came home with a list of books to read and films to see so next time we book tours with Mossie we can have an even more enriching experience. You'll feel so lucky to be in his presence as you tour the country.
Mossie is the best and will forever hold a special place in our hearts! We were lucky to have him as our personal chauffeur for a day around Dingle. He... read more is very knowledgeable about the history of Ireland and the areas in which we visited. The pride that he has in his job and in his country is apparent. Mossie made sure we saw the most we could, given the limited opportunities because of the weather. He made the car ride fun, educational, and he even sang to us! Look no further if you are ever in need of a driver.
Mossie was engaging, funny, and informative. Though the options were limited by terrible visibility and weather Mossie made it well worth the time by giving us an in depth telling... read more of the political and social issues of historical and contemporary Ireland. It takes great talent to …
We had the very good fortune of booking a last minute half day tour of the Dingle peninsula with Mossie! We stopped at historical sites and were given an oral... read more history of Ireland. Mossie also knows all the most beautiful places to stop along the tour and we were able to see baby lambs, beehive huts, waterfalls, mountain lakes and all the best scenery that Dingle Peninsula has to offer. We were only sad that the tour had to end. If you want a fantastic tour guide please do yourself a favor and book a tour with Mossie-I am 100% certain that it will be the best part of your trip as it was of ours!
Mossie’s tour was one of the highlights of our trip to Ireland. His deep knowledge of the Dingle Peninsula along with its history was very impressive. His personal stories of... read more growing up in the area made the tour even more enjoyable. Mossie was the perfect guide to showcase the stunning beauty and rich heritage of the Dingle Peninsula.
In a word, Mossie was TREMENDOUS. We so enjoyed and appreciated his knowledge, patience, flexibility, warmth, humor, and sense of adventure. and his obvious love of what he... read more does. All he wanted was for us to have as good a time as possible— and we definitely did!
Mossie was EXTREMELY knowledgeable about Dingle and its history. but he never overdid it tried to show off how much he knows. He somehow sensed just the right amount of Dingle & Irish history, and his life experiences (so interesting!), to share with us.
At the start of our day together, Mossie asked us a few questions to get a sense for what types of activities we most enjoy and what we can take or leave (we told him that we weren't particularly "archaeological"), and he fully respected that. But he still suggested (always gently) that we experience, if only briefly, a few things that weren't in our stated wheelhouse that he thought we might nevertheless enjoy. He just sensed it. And every time, we were glad that he did (even "archaeological" stuff). Throughout the day, he struck the perfect balance between suggesting (again, always gently) sites or experiences we might enjoy and taking us to shops or sites that we knew we wanted to visit.
Sitting here now, I can't even recall all the activities we crammed (but never rushing) into our day with Mossie. All I can recall is that we enjoyed every spectacular view, every scenic hike, every quirky shop, and every restaurant or coffee stop that he suggested.
Again, the only thing Mossie wanted was for us to enjoy our day in Dingle as much as possible. And he refused to end the tour until he was 100% sure that we had. I believe that the tour was scheduled to stop at 5 or 5:30, but we ended up going until 6:30 or 7:00. Why? Well, he knew that we wanted to drive Conor Pass, but he'd been told that it was too foggy to see much of anything that particular day. But around 5 or so, he took us there just in case the fog had cleared (it hadn't, but we still enjoyed it). And after that, because he knew that our 24-year-old daughter loves hiking, he accompanied her on a rocky hike up to a beautiful lake even though we'd had plenty of hiking to and around the ocean earlier in the day. He just wanted to be absolutely certain that she had as great a day as my wife and I had (she definitely did).
AND WHAT A NICE GUY. Example: We told him how much we enjoyed the music that was playing in his car (a lovely, spacious Mercedes) through most of our day. He told us various places (Amazon, music shop in town) where we likely could purchase it. But being, you know, Mossie, he didn't stop there. The MORNING AFTER our tour, he dropped off HIS OWN COPY of the CD at our B & B and he threw in a couple of CDs of HIM singing (he has a lovely voice, and SANG at least one song for us during the tour). I mean, who does that? That would be Mossie. So thoughtful, and so generous.
Mossie just wanted us to love Dingle as much as he obviously does—and we do! Dingle was the best part of our Ireland experience (well, except for our daughter getting married in a castle in Tralee), and Mossie was the best part of Dingle. We couldn't recommend him more highly!
If you are looking for the best tour guide in Dingle then I highly recommend Mossie from Mossie's Tours. He is most knowledgeable in the country and history of... read more Ireland and delivers a truly wonderful and unique experience that I am sure will leave you with a much greater enjoyment of this magical place. Thanks again Mossie till we meet again!
