Exclusive Dingle Peninsula Experience

April 25 to May 2, 2023

This intimate small group tour is led by Tommy and Saundra O’Sullivan. Over the years, the most common phrase they have heard from tour guests who have visited O’Sullivan’s Courthouse Pub is that they wish they had more time in Dingle. With this tour, the O’Sullivan’s are making that wish a reality.

Known as one of the most beautiful places on earth, the Dingle Peninsula is nestled between the emerald hills and crystal sea of stunning County Kerry and features the most westerly point in all of Europe. With its lush landscape, rich culture full of arts, music, culinary and literary abundance, visitors always want more time in Dingle.

Whether you’re a regular or a first-time visitor, you will find this very special tour equally captivating, and, as the O’Sullivans’ guest on the Dingle Peninsula Experience you will be part of their world and community. During this tour, you will meet local friends and musicians and visit places no other tours will even go. Not to mention there will be exclusive activities featuring plenty of craic-good-times and mischief making!

Guest Testimonials

When the stories of your travel include a stowaway, a mermaid, and a snail, you can be sure you have had a rollicking good time!

Many thanks to Tommy, Saundra, and PJ (musician and bus driver extraordinaire!) along with 26 of the best traveling companions we could have hoped for. A bit of history, lots of music, and the best craic ever. The variety of activities in this tour kept us all engaged, with enough free time to rest up (or shop). The day guides were excellent, and the musicians phenomenal. Tommy and Saundra seem to know everyone in southern Ireland and were able to tap into those connections to make our tour one of the best we've ever been on.

Even if you've been to Ireland before, you should go on this tour--you will see and be part of a country and culture you simply cannot find on your own.

My wife and I were fortunate enough to get seats on Tommy and Saundra’s first tour and I can honestly say that I can’t imagine a better way to see Ireland. Tommy, Saundra and PJ showed us sites and included us in musical sensations that I doubt any other tour could come close to.
I highly recommend O’Sullivan’s Courthouse Tours whether or not you’ve been to Ireland before. It’s definately worth the price. They took care if every detail and we were the beneficiaries.
Thank you Tommy & Saundra........ and PJ.

I just returned from Tommy and Saundra's tour. To describe it in a word: incredible. This is a tour that shows you some truly authentic Ireland. Historical sites, small towns, exciting music, mouthwatering food, and some truly wonderful pubs. They are friendly and knowledgeable and they work with some extremely knowledgeable experts as well. By the end of the trip, it felt like I was leaving home, not going back.

Don't use one of the big tours. Go with Tommy and Saundra. You won't regret it (except, of course, until you try one pub's fish and chips, and then you'll regret that you can't get that everywhere you go).

If you are looking for a tour of Ireland that exceeds all expectations, this is the one!!

Tommy & Saundra are not only spectacularly talented musicians, but they are also masterful tour directors as well.

Their collective knowledge of the region, Irish history, food and culture make the adventure even more unforgettable.

You'll visit places that are truly off-the-map, see and learn about significant historical sites and dine at some of the best spots in Ireland.

Importantly, thanks to Tommy and Saundra's "curation skills", you'll have multiple opportunities to see overwhelmingly beautiful sites in this wonderful country and enjoy the friendly locals along the way.

If that weren't enough, there's the music!!
Nearly every night of the tour, in every stop along the way, there's a chance to enjoy a traditional music session (or concert) featuring Tommy, Saundra and some local guest musicians!

This tour is special in so many ways, it deserves more than Five Stars!!

Thanks again to Tommy & Saundra for a terrific adventure!!!

Words alone cannot describe the amount of effort Tommy & Saundra invested in to our tour of Ireland. If they do not know everyone in Ireland I would be willing to bet everyone knows of them.
They personify the reason you go to Ireland, beautiful scenery, history and damn good Craic!!!
I wonder how many tours stop at the Choctaw monument created by Alex Pentek, tell you the story and follow that up with a very beautiful and emotional song. They never stopped adding more and more to our experience. Their circle of friends personally turned this tour into an emotional experience. There is no way you will ever leave Ireland with more knowledge of Irelands past and present than spending time with Tommy & Saundra. I do believe we have new friends for life! Can not thank you two enough!! Shine on Tommy & Saundra!!! Slainte!!!

I ran out of room in my earlier testimonial because there is just so much to say but I would be very remiss not to acknowledge Our bus driver PJ (apparently there is more than 1 bus driver in Ireland named PJ). PJ was the icing on the cake, the cherry on top of ice cream Sunday. PJ's professional knowledge of Irish history, classic humor and unwavering curtesy helped to pull everything together perfectly. These 3 folks truly complement each other both professionally and personally. calling this experience a tour sounds a little off to me. To me it felt more like a ride around Ireland with friends wanting to make sure you have the very best Irish experience possible in the time allotted.
Tommy, Saundra & P.J. Thank you very much for providing us with this unforgettable experience. T&A

We had a wonderful time on this tour. We went with 24 of our friends and Tommy and Saundra hit it out of the park for everyone! We have been to Ireland on numerous occasions, but never have had an experience quite like this one. Tommy and Saundra truly seem to know everyone! They take you off the beaten path for experiences you simply cannot find on other tours and certainly not if you were to grab a car and travel yourself.

Our bus driver, PJ, is not only an amazing driver, but he is quite the historian as well. He regaled us with wonderful stories and bits of history along the way. We looked forward to this everyday.

Some of our companions on the tour had never been to Ireland. They were blown away by its beauty, friendliness of the people, the music and all around great craic. If you're planning a trip to Ireland, O'Sullivan's Courthouse Tours is the way to go! Thank you, Tommy and Saundra for such great memories that we will always treasure!

Recently home from a tour with the O’Sullivans and PJ, and I cannot express to you the level of professionalism, organization and fun that they showed us throughout the entire trip. For the 10 days on this tour everyday was better than the next! Thank you very much Tommy, Saundra and PJ for making my vacation a trip I will not forget, I would rate it 10 stars but they only gave me 5.

I can’t say enough good things about Tommy and Saundra O’Sullivan’s tour of Ireland’s Wild Atlantic Way.
It was truly fabulous. They took us where tourists rarely travel and related some fascinating history along the way.

The focus of the tour is traditional Irish music, and through Tommy’s long involvement in that scene we heard some great stuff…not in shows organized for tourists, but in local pubs with trad musicians from the community. People were exceptionally friendly and welcoming.

It sounds cliche, but I really feel like we got a good look into the “real” Ireland, and I loved it.
