Feedback from 2016 tours:-

“On behalf of Belfast U3A, can I thank everyone involved in The Ring of Gullion Heritage Coach Tour for our wonderful tour of South Armagh,especially our guide Una Walsh one of the best historians we have ever listened to.”

“On behalf of myself and my 4 accompanying friends, we would like to express our enjoyment on a wonderful day out today on the Heritage tour. Una was a brilliant guide, every bit as spectacular in her knowledge as the outstanding scenery we saw.  We were so impressed with every aspect of the tour and will not hesitate to highly recommend it to others. Una’s obvious passion about the area struck a chord with all of us.”
