Kim Kim Team did a great job for us. · Ireland - Jun 15 - Jun 23, 2022
Kim Kim Team was great. It was very comforting to know that the hotels we were registered at were ready and that if there was ever a problem the Kim Kim Team was readily available. We were so lucky to have NO Rain.....and lots of sun for the whole trip to Ireland. beautiful .....The car rental was a breeze and we are glad you hooked us up with a hybrid so gas wasn't our enemy. Driving on the wrong side of the car and the road....and those skinny roads was part of the charm. All of... read more
2 years of planning with disappointing results · Ireland - May 30 - Jun 11, 2022
We started planning this trip 2 years ago. We always intended to do a 14-day self-drive tour of very specific locations. We requested support to identify locations within those cities that we might want to see, lodging that met our needs, and an SUV that would accommodate my service dog. We were originally supposed to have 3 local tour guides, a few tours, and a ferry passage included. Somewhere these were all deleted and the cost of the trip just included the lodging and the car rental... read more
Can't wait to do this again through KimKim · Ireland - Jun 7 - Jun 14, 2022
Our accommodations were great and our Guide, Denis Beakey, was AMAZING!!! Extremely knowledgeable and pleasant. He was a five star guide for a five star experience.

Austin Rock did an excellent job in arranging our ten day visit to Ireland. He took into account our desires to stay in quaint BNBs in small towns, have available hiking options, and experience the culture and people of western Ireland. His suggestions were spot-on and made for a very memorable vacation. Austin was very easy to work with and timely with communications and itineraries.
Our most memorable activities were hiking in Killarney and Connemara National Parks and attending a... read more
Amazing road trip in Ireland · Ireland - May 28 - Jun 3, 2022
I must say Austin is a star! From the beginning when we were planning the trip to the end of our trip Austin has been great with his information and organisation. All the places we visited were suggested very well and detailed information of what to see was provided including all the Google map/direction links. People were lovely everywhere we went and made us feel very welcome in Ireland. A tip…if walking along the cliffs, walk downhill from the visitor centre towards Doolin. We did it the... read more

My husband and I had an AMAZING trip in Ireland for our ten year anniversary! The kimkim team and Ireland walk hike bike did such a fantastic job. The B&Bs we stayed at were all wonderful and they provided a very detailed day to day itinerary for our hiking adventure!
Our dream vacation · Ireland - May 16 - May 28, 2022
Our trip to Ireland was an unforgettable adventure. Dean had to make our dream journey happen after having to stall for two years due to COVID 19. He never forgot our original wishes. The travel arrangements he made for us were precisely what we had hoped for. Whether driving, biking, or walking, I highly recommend the Kimkim group. It met all of our expectations and so much more. We thank the team for an unforgettable experience.
Wonderful road trip to Ireland · Ireland - May 18 - May 29, 2022
We had never been to Ireland - and needed more than someone to book hotels. We needed advice on where to go, what to see, car rental, etc... and most importantly... someone who would take the time to understand who we are and what we want re hotel vs. B&B, guided trip vs. self-drive, time for hikes, kayaking, etc. Kimkim Travel and Dean were outstanding in all regards. High points of our trip included - time to drive and stop and hike thru Sheeps Head Penisula, the Ring of Kerry, Dingle and Doolin... All breath taking and great fun.
Ireland-- a GRAND adventure! · Ireland - Apr 27 - May 8, 2022
Linda was a fabulous tour guide who made our Ireland holiday a GRAND adventure! She was a font of Irish knowledge and we learned so much from her. She was so attentive to details and was very patient and kind with each of our requests.
My favorite day was the day that Linda took us to the town of Glin to visit the O'Shaughnessy pub and the little shanty where my great-great grandfather O'Shaughnessy lived. It was wonderful to learn more about my Irish heritage. I also enjoyed my tour... read more
Fantastic organisation and amazing walks · Ireland - May 10 - May 20, 2022
Fantastic organisation and amazing walks all around the ring of Kerry, can't recommend enough!
Austin put together an epic journey · Ireland - Apr 27 - May 5, 2022
Austin put together a trip that we couldn't have come up with on our own, with recommendations to do things that we probably would have overlooked. We saw so much of Ireland. We loved all the accommodations, especially staying at Kinnity Castle. We had so much fun and such great adventures and made memories to last a lifetime. Austin gave us an insider's tour of the history of Dublin Centre, which was so interesting. He was so helpful when we had a minor snafu (of our doing) on our journey. read more

Austin in Ireland ... · Ireland - Apr 27 - May 5, 2022
Austin was great to work with. He was patient with us, made recommendations and everything came together as planned. He made all hotel arrangements, rental car, etc. We hooked up with him in Dublin for a walking tour of almost two hours, which was very informative.
Loved the trip and will consider kimkim again. read more
The Best West Coast Trip! · Ireland - Apr 16 - Apr 24, 2022
Austin nailed our itinerary! We had the best time and he was extremely communicative and curated a trip that was perfect for us. I highly recommend using Austin and KimKim for all your coordination and itinerary needs. It was extremely easy to communicate and develop something to please all our party.
The fact that I did not have to spend hours online researching "all the things" was fabulous. I will use this service again and again for any trip in my future. read more
Great trip. kimkim provided wonderful places... · Ireland - Apr 30 - May 9, 2022
Great trip. kimkim provided wonderful places to stay. We got emails along the way asking us how we were doing.
Only one place we stayed said we did not get breakfast (Wicklow Heather Lodge). Places we loved the most. Fernrod B&B, Lighthouse B&B,
Dingle was the best stop for us. Loved this town.
Highlights-Wicklow mountains, peaceful pass, ring of Kerry and the cliffs of moher.
Great time, great company, we will use them again for sure tI help us plan our trip. read more
Part 1 - Ireland · Ireland - Apr 10 - May 3, 2022
The trip that Owen and his team set up was amazing. The places we stayed, the things we saw, the food we ate was all well selected and incredible. Days traveled weren’t to long and we had time to explore the sites, towns and anything we spotted along the way.
Good · Ireland - Oct 4 - Oct 9, 2021
Everything was perfect. I don't know what resources KimKim has for this, but it would be awesome to have audio to listen to in the car while driving to the next destination so we get some history or background on the next destination while we are driving.
Best Girls Trip Ever ! · Ireland - Sep 28 - Oct 5, 2021
A friend and I had decided to plan a trip to Ireland . I had used kim kim for a trip I planned with my son to Australia. We worked with Dean this time around . He was great . We ended up having to reschedule our trip 2x because of Covid and he kept us well informed . We finally made it to Ireland , ever detail was planned . We had a bus tour guide Bud who was fantastic . David our private driver for 2 days was so knowledgeable and went above and beyond . I can’t find one negative moment of this trip. Thanks again Dean and kim kim for the most wonderful girls trip ever .
Gave us a list of hidden Gems. · Ireland - Sep 15 - Sep 29, 2021
Our experience with the team at KimKim was very professional. We had a well organized itinerary. The team checked in with us to ensure everything was going well and helped us make some necessary changes in hotels when we found the one that had been booked was unacceptable.
We had a glorious 16 days along the Wild Atlantic Way. The helpful hints of where to stop for coffee break or where to go for dinner helped us find hidden gems we wouldn't have found on our own. The place we loved... read more
Arranging a trans-Atlantic trip in these time... · Ireland - Aug 21 - Aug 28, 2021
Arranging a trans-Atlantic trip in these times is quite a risky project. However, Austin stayed with me and we eventually got a reservation. Without Austin's local experience we would never have found the ideal place for us to stay, Fullerton Arms in Ballintoy.
He was able to find a local guide for us and the trip was so good we are certain to go back again.
I have to emphasise that without Austin's help we would never have found this place.
Beyond Amazing · Ireland - Aug 12 - Aug 21, 2021
I have nothing but good things to say about booking with Ireland Walk, Hike, Bike. A few details about the trip...It was my mom (60+ yrs), myself (38), and my 9 mo old daughter. We were there for 10 days and walked portions of "The Kerry Way" most of the days. I carried my daughter in a hiking backpack while my mom carried the food / snacks. Coordinating a trip with a nine month old in another country can be intimidating to state it lightly. We had cabs picking us up and dropping us to at the... read more
Buffett plus · Ireland - Sep 22 - Sep 28, 2019
Our guide Maurice from Ireland Walk Bike Hike was very helpful both before and during our recent trip to Ireland. He and a woman from their office (whose name I don't recall) called twice in our 7 day trip to make sure all was well. Galway was a good base for excursions. Westport was a lovely little town. We heard the best Trad music there and on my husband's birthday too! Ballina was a fun. We tried the traditional hot seaweed baths since this wasn't something we could do in the US. It was... read more
Self Guided Hiking Tour · Ireland - Sep 13 - Sep 24, 2019
I had a really great trip with Kimkim. Everything was so easy all the way through and the team was always a phone call away if I had any questions or needed some help.
Dean was fantastic and even dropped in for a face to face half way through to check in. I received phone calls from the team during the trip which was really comforting as I was travelling alone.
Petrina was also always close by when I needed anything and responded very quickly to any questions I had.
The hosts at each of my... read more
Ireland · Ireland - Sep 16 - Sep 26, 2019
Our trip to Ireland was memorable and we will use kimkim and Ireland Walk Bike Hike again to plan new adventures. Although we did not bike at all we had many walks and shorter hikes in beautiful places. Our windy, rainy excursion to the Aran Islands was warmed by an Irish Coffee at a small island pub followed by a boat trip around the Cliffs of Moher. Our itinerary was ambitious and we will spend more time in fewer places next visit. Many thanks to trip planner Dean from Tralee who was... read more

Thanks Dean and Petrina! We had an amazing time in Ireland, and loved every moment of it! We would love to come back and see more of your beautiful country. All the work you put in for us, both in terms of making our bookings and planning our itinerary, is much appreciated. Almost everything worked like clockwork. We were also lucky to have great weather during our time there, and on the one day it wasn't great due to the rain, quite magically Dean showed up, and helped us plan our... read more
Trip of a lifetime to Ireland · Ireland - Sep 8 - Sep 14, 2019
Our guide, Dean M was super brillant. We had the best time. He made sure we had the history of each place we stopped. And he added a few along the way he found after getting to know us better. We felt like we had first class service the entire trip. If I had to pick, the Aran Island trip was my favorite.
The food was exceptional. Every meal delicious. Saying good by to Dean at the end of our week together was like saying good bye to an old friend. Thank you for a great trip.

Ring of Kerry Self-Guided Cycling Tour - 8 Days · Ireland - Jun 30 - Jul 5, 2019

Ireland 2019 · Ireland - Jun 1 - Jun 9, 2019
Dean was great to work with and it was nice to have things set up and prepaid along the way (car, B&Bs, etc). Also good suggestions on places to stop, sites to see. One place not to miss is Skellig Michael, especially on a clear day, but reserve well ahead!
Hazel trip 2019 · Ireland - Jun 7 - Jun 14, 2019
My granddaughter and I had a wonderful trip!
Petrina arranged everything beautifully and was responsive to all my questions and doubts.
My only complaint was the weather. I doubt she could do anything about it, though.
Ireland is beautiful. The people, the scenery and the food were lovely.
Thank you for all your help.
Ireland 2019 · Ireland - Jun 1 - Jun 9, 2019
I thought overall this was a well planned trip. Every day was different and it felt that there were different themes. We didn't drive long between locations. What made it so successful is that we had a framework and a structure, but allowed us the flexibility to change our plans during the course of the day. Weather is Ireland is always unpredictable. We had a challenging start but the weather came through nicely at the tail end of our trip.
On the first day, driving up to Galway made... read more
First visit to Ireland for most of us · Ireland - May 1 - May 11, 2019
Donncha is a fantastic guide! We couldn’t have been in better hands. Louise needs to get some experience in scheduling tours. Very aggressive timeline. BUT, we loved our Ireland experience!
First visit to Ireland for most of us · Ireland - May 1 - May 11, 2019
Donncha was the highlight of the trip. His knowledge and love of Ireland history, geography, politics, music, etc. deepened our experience. His singing was an unexpected treat and helped define Irish culture. My favorite memories include the Burren, Cliffs of Moher and Dingle. We had a great trip.
Ireland hiking 5/19 · Ireland - May 5 - May 12, 2019
There were 10 of us hiking together during the first week of May in 2019. The KimKim team made our planning requests easy to book and were able to adjust the trip and tailor it to our needs. We would without a doubt use KimKim for any of our future travel plans. The response I received from all our friends after the hike was how everything from transportation, lodging, communication, and the hiking went without a hitch. We have never been on a trip where everyone from Maurice to the drivers... read more
First visit to Ireland for most of us · Ireland - May 1 - May 11, 2019
Great trip! Donncha was such a wonderful guide . His knowledge, witt ,sense of humor and passion for his country made for a great trip. Not to mention his singing of his repertoire of Irish songs.
I enjoyed our hike of the cliffs of Mohr as well as the walk up the gap. Cape Clear was also a special place. We were fortunate to have great weather to enjoy all of the places we went.
All of the accommodations were good as well as the suggested restaurants. The owners and staff of all the accommodations were great. My favorite was the Quay house .

Still exploring for spring break 2019 · Ireland - Mar 22 - Mar 31, 2019
We had an amazing time. Warner was the perfect guide: knowledgable, easygoing, fun, funny, flexible, everything! We all missed him so much when he dropped us off in Dublin, like we had left one of our family members! Our favorite place was Adare Manor, along with the falconry and archery there. But all of the planned activities were great fun, including the ghost tour in Kildare, the bike tour in Kilkenny, etc. We will be back on day to explore the north of Ireland!

Ireland Sept 2018 · Ireland - Sep 16 - Sep 22, 2018
We had a wonderful time on our trip - we enjoyed the specific stops they suggested especially in Connamora. We had one logistical lodging issue and they were available by phone within 5 minutes on a Sunday afternoon to help figure it out. They resolved it right away and the rest of the trip went by without a hitch. It was a very special week getting to visit ireland, having the logistics taken care of and wonderful information to help figure out what we wanted to do each day. We had a great time!
Whiskey cycling trip · Ireland - Sep 30 - Oct 7, 2018
Hi! Fantastic trip, can’t say enough about Maurice; very courteous, responded very quickly to any concerns or questions. Excellent trip organizer. Only negative comment is that the written road directions provided need to be updated. For example., “ turn RIGHT leaving the Skibbereen heritage center parking lot” We’ll it’s actually a LEFT turn. So this happened on a few occasions where the GPS and written directions were in conflict. Who to believe? This added a challenging dimension to the... read more

I sent my dates, what I was going to do, and they arranged everything for me! They were so helpful for me as an independent traveler, and flexible with what I wanted to do, and available if I needed help.

To fill my eyes with beauty. · Ireland - Jul 6 - Jul 11, 2018
My trip to Ireland was pretty much perfect. I could tell it was designed by someone local - the depth of knowledge - the nuances - would not have been possible otherwise.
The places I went and the things I did were tailored to my tastes and preferences, and the people I worked with were trustworthy, punctual and organized. It was a week without a hitch.
Shannon to Aran and the Burren · Ireland - Jun 1 - Jun 2, 2018
My experience exceeded my expectations due to my guide Linda's exceptional knowledge of the areas I requested travel to (the Aran Islands, and the Burren), her keenness of listening to determine how she could fulfil my hopes for my 2 day trips, and her going the extra mile to link up with a local expert and resident who grew up in the Burren and gave us a personalized walk and commentary on an untrafficked section of the National Park. Besides being out of doors on the ferry to Aran and past... read more
