Our experience was absolutely fantastic

Our family of 4 (two young teens) booked a week with Ireland Chauffer travel - our experience was absolutely fantastic! Our Itinerary spanned from Galway to Northern Ireland and in between. We were paired with and amazing driver guide, Bob. Lifelong Irish and retired Garda, Bob was so wonderful to spend time with. Fun, professional, great recommendations all around. Bob and Ireland Chauffer Travel were the absolute highlight of our trip. They are willing to work with your itinerary or plan one for you. Just let them know what interests you and they can make many suggestions. Every recommendation was spot on. Highly recommend!

A Wonderful Adventure

My husband and I, along with our four other friends, thoroughly enjoyed an incredible weeklong trip through Ireland in June, thanks to Ireland Chauffeur Travel. Bob Noonan (our driver/tour guide) and Alison Lonergan (travel advisor) were absolutely amazing and I can’t thank them enough. We felt SO lucky to have Bob as our guide! His impressive deep knowledge of Ireland’s history and culture really made a huge difference in our experience on this trip, and he went out of his way to show us so many beautiful landscapes. We all appreciated his accommodating, flexible, thoughtful, friendly, humorous, and kind spirit.
I would totally recommend Ireland Chauffeur Travel to anyone planning an Ireland trip and give them five stars!

This company is AMAZING!

This company is AMAZING! I have never been more satisfied with a business/service and if I could give them a 100-star review, I would. My boyfriend and I planned a last-minute trip to Ireland where we were visiting for the first time. I had reached out to a few driving services, nervous it was too late to book a driver. Joe Murphy at Ireland Chauffeur Travel was the first to get back to me and he did so in a matter of hours. Not only was he quick to respond, but he was also quick to put together an itinerary and get me back any adjustments I had made. I always felt like I was his #1 priority, even though I know he was dealing with other clients. Our Driver Tom O’Toole was honestly our favorite and most memorable part of our trip to Ireland. From his charismatic personality to his vast knowledge of history and all things discussed, he was an absolute delight to be around! Every place we drove or went to, Tom knew a backstory for it. He wasn’t afraid to get a little dirty either! Tom romped through the mud to make sure we got the best views possible, he gave us insider visiting tips on every place we went to and gave us better tours at some of these sites than the people that worked there. He also wasn’t afraid to go off the beaten path to give us personalized behind the scenes tours at many locations. He was very attentive to time and weather, making sure we always got to see everything we wanted and get the best weather possible to view it. Sometimes adjusting our agenda for the day so we wouldn’t get rained on. In addition to all that, Tom always recommended great pubs and places to shop everywhere we went. He was a true gentleman, always opening our car doors and pulling up for us at the exact moment we needed him, making sure we never had to wait around for him. Overall, Tom was a great driver, tour guide, photographer, meteorologist, and friend while we were there. He truly made our trip the best we have ever had and one that we will never forget. If you couldn’t already tell, I highly recommend this company and their services!

It was the trip of a lifetime

Our coordinator Michelle, was outstanding...thoughtful, professional, organized and friendly. She followed up with a multitude of options to accommodate our preferences every step of the way. Our Private Driver Guide (Bob Noonan) was enthusiastic, friendly, knowledgeable, accommodating, and flexible. He really made us feel at home and was an incredible ambassador to both your company and country. It was the trip of a lifetime thanks in large part to all of you!


I rate the trip five stars

The team did everything they said they would do. Michelle, who arranged our travel itinerary, was understanding of our needs and prepared an excellent tour with outstanding accommodations. John Hourigan, our Private Driver Guide was terrific. Always on time, provided comprehensive information and insights from his own experiences. I rate the trip five stars.

Absolutely wonderful

We were lucky enough to have Dermot Fogarty as our guide. He was absolutely wonderful; knowledgeable, polite and fun. Not only did we enjoy the tour, we enjoyed his company immensely. You are really quite lucky to have someone like Dermot working for you.

Our experience was excellent from start to finish

Our experience was excellent from start to finish. Our Private Driver Guide, Bob Noonan was just outstanding. He was extremely knowledgeable about the areas we visited and Irish history. He made great suggestions, and we always felt that our enjoyment was his number one priority. This is the second time that I've used your company and always recommend it to others who plan to visit. Thank you for such a memorable vacation in Northern Ireland.

So glad we chose you for our trip to Ireland!

Our small group of six are so glad we chose you for our trip to Ireland. We were ALL able to enjoy the scenic drives and activities as our expert local driver (Martin Wilde) took care of the driving, parking, and telling us about the local area history, culture, and current events.
We were very pleased as well with the comfortable accommodations booked for our entire stay.

We truly appreciate all you and your company did to make our trip fabulous

Hi Alison,

I wanted to write to thank you so much for arranging our day trip to Howth and our 3 day trip to the west coast of Ireland. Tom, our driver to Howth was just great. We were all recovering from a big day in the pubs and he kept us entertained and informed. We stopped at Malahide Castle which was an unexpected treat to our entire group. Since the weather wasn’t cooperating he gave us a wonderful tour of both Howth and the Dublin highlights. The 2nd part of our trip was with Gerry who took us to the west coast. Gerry is amazing with his knowledge and love of Ireland. We were all so grateful to have him as our tour guide. He was always right there to answer all our questions and get us the best views possible. We truly appreciate all you and your company did to make our trip fabulous.

Would absolutely book with you again

Tom was absolutely wonderful! We were so grateful to have him escort us around and share his knowledge of Ireland with us. Each day, he had a little surprise up his sleeve, which made our trip all the more special. He was also so easy to talk to and made us feel very comfortable and safe. Tom also made sure we stayed on time for the day, giving us some guidance on how long to spend at any given location, which we found very helpful. Would absolutely book with you all again and request Tom as our driver :).

Our experience with this company was absolutely perfect!

From beginning to end, our experience with this company was absolutely perfect!
Joe, our initial contact & holiday planner, was top-notch to communicate with, working with us to provide our best experience.
Bob our tour guide & driver was amazing! We have never had a more experienced guide, tremendous driver, as well as an overall great guy. He totally took into account our interests & input. His knowledge of Ireland was unbelievably fantastic.
We left, planning our next trip with this company.

From pick-up to drop-off we had a truly luxury experience

From booking with Joe through to our fabulous tour in Belfast, things could not have been easier. Everyone I dealt with in the office was efficient and helpful. Our driver, who took us from Belfast, up the Antrim Coast, and then back through Belfast on a wonderful city tour, was informative and attentive. My mother has issues walking and we never had to worry about the car being too far away or her having to walk long distances. The car was spacious and we were comfortable throughout our day trip. From pick-up to drop-off we had a truly luxury experience and I wouldn't hesitate to book again!

Highly Recommended!!

In April 2019 we worked with Alison. She prepared an excellent, 2 week itinerary, including road trip, sights and great accommodations. Our Driver/Guide, Bob Noonan met us on our first touring day. Bob has an incredible command of the history, culture and customs of all of Ireland. He is an excellent Driver, Teacher - kind, caring, and patient - always making sure we were traveling well. Our first trip was Perfect and like so many others, We Fell in Love with Ireland.

We returned to Ireland 5 months later for a second trip to Northern Ireland once again traveling with Bob Noonan. Again, it was another trip of a lifetime. The team provided great customer service at all times. Everything about our experience with this company was Positive.

A Big Thanks to Alison, Aoife, Breda, and Bob!! Highly Recommended!!

The vehicle was luxurious, clean and brand new!

This was a "bucket list" trip for our family of 6 (adults). It exceeded our expectations. The vehicle was luxurious, clean and brand new! All the events and accommodations Joe suggested were great. Our itinerary was perfectly planned and our days were full and exciting. Our tour guide, Tom O'Toole, was amazing and knowledgeable. He met us at the airport, and from then on was a great source of Irish history and so humorous! Tom was full of dining suggestions, and took us to interesting attractions away from the crowds. We saw everything we wanted to see and more. This trip was a wonderful family experience. We highly recommend this experience.

Highly recommend for anyone worrying about driving in Ireland

We recently got back from a 10 day trip around Ireland where we used this company to help us get around. Our driver's name was Peter and he was a delight. He was always on time and very collaborative on the itinerary for the day (I had a very detailed one but as I'm no expert was very open to hearing about things I'd missed). Peter's experience and driving helped us have a very enjoyable and relaxing trip. Highly recommend for anyone worrying about driving in Ireland. My husband and I drove on our previous trip and trust me, this is better!

Everything about the tour was well arranged

We had a fantastic time in Ireland. We are very pleased with your hotel suggestions, especially Mount Juliet was amazing. Everything about the tour was well arranged from your end.
Both tour guides were really nice. Cyril was a true delight, his passion for his work is infectious. He has given us nice historical, cultural information and his humor and positive personality were refreshing. I would recommend Cyril to any of my friends planning a trip to Ireland.

Your professionalism and drivers are first-rate!

Our fabulous trip is now in the history books with wonderful memories.
Just wanted to thank you for organizing our itinerary and setting us up with our very pleasant and extremely knowledgeable driver and guide, Eric Lye. Eric allowed us to relax and enjoy the scenery while getting us safely to our destinations.
Unfortunately, he couldn’t do anything about the Ireland weather on our first two days of touring where the rain seemed to be endless but he managed to make the best of the rainy situation. The last two days of touring the Dingle were perfect.
We would highly recommend Ireland Chauffeurs to anyone wishing to privately tour Ireland. Your professionalism and drivers are first rate. Michelle, you were extremely helpful and patient with us during the planning phase. Overall, we had a lovely time in Ireland.

Thank you again,

Hands down, the only way to see Ireland!

Hands down, the only way to see Ireland! Joe made planning this trip extremely easy. He was responsive, professional and took the time to educate me on all the potential options. The trip itself was almost perfect. Our guide (Tom) was an excellent driver, but more importantly, he was our historical guide, concierge, and culinary/social specialist. Every single recommendation Tom made exceeded our expectations. It actually became a family joke: “another average recommendation by Tom”. I cannot emphasize enough how pleasurable this service made my vacation. Typically I am driving and in charge of the family schedule. I was able to relax and actually enjoy my time off. Thank you.

This was our 5th trip, looking forward to the 6th………need I say more?

Camillus Croke (Cam) hit a home run for us as a driver and guide. Would recommend him in a heart beat. From the office side Michelle did a fantastic job and was on top of all aspects of the itinerary. This was our 5th trip, looking forward to the 6th………need I say more?

The experience was outstanding from beginning to end

The experience was outstanding from beginning to end. Everyone I dealt with ( Alma, Michelle, Joe, Tom O'Toole) was incredible. Joe was our planning contact and he did a great job. He was patient, courteous, flexible, knowledgeable and always made time to handle questions and work through trips requests. Tom O'Toole was our trip host and he was awesome. It was such a pleasure traveling with Tom. He made our trip special in so many ways - his knowledge, sense of humor, recommendations, perspective provided us with insights into Irish history, culture, and amazing spirit we would have not have experienced otherwise. Julie and I want to thank all of you for making our vacation so wonderful. It is truly appreciated.

I will 100% recommend this to anyone I know taking a trip to Ireland

Todd and I were both very pleased with the overall service we experienced with this company. Alison was my main contact in the office when I was setting up the trip, and whether I was talking to Alison or one of her colleagues, the conversations were always seamless (the sign of an office that communicates well with one another!). It's really nice to work with a family run business, because that's the kind of service that I felt like I received at every point of contact; there was always a warm familiarity with each conversation.

However, what impressed us most of all was our tour guide, John. John was professional, extremely knowledgeable, dressed very well (we loved his suits!), and seemed to truly care about our experience. We couldn't have been any happier, and I will 100% recommend this to anyone I know taking a trip to Ireland.

Above and beyond what we could have expected!

Just wanted to drop you a line to tell you how much we enjoyed our visit to beautiful Ireland. Michael was an absolute fantastic guide - going above and beyond what we could have expected. His person and his vehicle were impeccable always - and he was responsive to our needs and any changes we decided to make in the itinerary - like suggesting the falconing at Ashford Castle (falconing was on my bucket list but I didn’t expect to do it in Ireland) - and it was like going to Sherwood Forest with Robin Hood - what an unforgettable experience! He tailored everything to our needs and made suggestions and reservations for meals and events. What a wonderful introduction to your country! Cant recommend Michael enough!

You guys are wonderful!

You guys are wonderful! Handled everything for us with ease and took the worries out of traveling including spur of the moment same-day hotel booking on July 1! Frances was our driver and we could not have been more pleased. She was fabulous! Next time I come to Ireland I will use Ireland Chauffeur Travel and will request Frances to drive. Thank you for helping to make the trip so very memorable.

Eric was amazing!!!

Our tour guide Eric was amazing!!! Great knowledge of the history of Ireland and the sites we visited. Had many great suggestions on the best places to go and how to navigate the sites that were popular and crowded. Very flexible to re-arrange the itinerary based on the conditions and preference.
Also helped us find the sites where our ancestors lived in the 1800s.
One of the best vacations ever!!!

Trip of a Lifetime – Top Notch Experience

I would like to provide a client testimonial for publication on your website regarding our positive experience with our driver/tour guide, Peter Chambers. We planned a multi-family vacation to Ireland which included a rough itinerary and hotels we booked ourselves. At the last minute and at the recommendation of family members who have traveled to Ireland, we decided to utilize a bus/chauffeur service to avoid the hassle of renting cars, driving ourselves, etc. Doing so would enable everyone to enjoy the vacation without one or two people having the burden of doing all of the driving. Without a doubt, it was the best decision we made especially because we had the good fortune to have Peter Chambers as our driver.
We knew from the moment we met Peter that it was going to be a fun trip. His warm personality, and great sense of humor made him instantly likeable. He had our itinerary in advance and made wonderful suggestions along the way for other sites to see and scenic routes to take from place to place which we would have otherwise missed. In addition, he suggested and arranged for our group to eat at fantastic restaurants along the way each day.
Peter went above and beyond what we would consider the typical responsibility of a driver/tour guide. For example, as part of our itinerary we planned to meet my mother-in-law’s cousin in Mayo for lunch. When we had no response from our cousin, Peter contacted a few friends of his who knew our relative, and was able to glean some valuable information about her situation. As it turned out, she was in the hospital. Peter contacted the hospital, and made arrangements for us to meet with her the next morning. Next, when visiting family graves at two different cemeteries, ironically, Peter knew the caretaker of one, and the neighboring farmer of the other, both of whom also knew relatives of our family. It never ceased to amaze us that Peter seemed to know people everywhere!
Finally, the best example of Peter going above and beyond his duties occurred when I realized my wallet was missing just prior to boarding our flight back to America. I contacted our hotel and they confirmed they had found my wallet. However, they indicated they would not be able to ship it back to me and could only leave it at the front desk for pickup. Without a means to pickup the wallet, I contacted Peter and thankfully he was more than willing to pick it up as he was going to be in Dublin in the next day or two. As promised, he picked up my wallet, arranged for overnight delivery to my residence back in the States and would not accept reimbursement for his out of pocket expenses. Truly above and beyond!
The experience with Peter far exceeded our expectations. We will definitely utilize you guys for future tours and specifically request Peter as our driver. We will also highly recommend his services to all our friends and family who are travelling to Ireland. He certainly went above and beyond to enhance our experience, and honestly by the end of our six days, he felt like family. Thank you, Peter, for everything! You are an asset to your team!
